    Sorry mate, just saw this.

    Dont use scratch x on your PC it will gum up and isnt supposed to be used with it. Try #80 meguiars speed glaze instead what other polish have u got, pad choice is fine

    For me, bin the last three mate. Autoglym isn't my taste, too many fillers and just plain pain in the ass.

    As for your sonus I can't member off the top of my head but when you get them then it tells you what each pad can be used for. Orange being the most aggressive.

    You dont use scratch x with your PC btw.

    - ScratchX
    - Cleaner paste wax
    - Clay
    - Silver Polish
    - Super Resin polish
    - Gold Class Clear Coat Paste Wax
    - NXT Tech Wax
    - #3 Machine Glaze
