Whitening Toothpaste? It’s worth a try

fucking hell why were you using a wire wool brush to clean a car?

Schtoop, you need a dual-action (DA) or Rotary Polisher ideally to sort that out as the paintwork has been marred. It's definitely fixable but needs a bit of knowledge and care. I'd do it for you but I'm not London(?) way. A professional detailer would sort it in a few minutes but you'd be looking at paying a bit for their time.

Thanks Mark, I'd be happy to pay for a professional detailer if it means it's done right… can you recommend any London based detailers?

I can't personally but it could be worth investing in a mobile detailer as they will come to your house/drive etc. More convenient and sometimes don't have the overheads of a unit so can be cheaper…
NOTE: I wouldn't touch the paintwork yourself now. Using T-cut or any other compound could put the paint/top coat at further risk.

Anyone have any experience running an electric car without off street parking at home?
Gonna be changing to a 80 mile round commute and that would sit a lot better with me if I was electric.
There are charging points in the multistory 10 mins from my house where I can park for free overnight. Can see this becoming aggro though.

^ get a diesel or petrol. There’s fuel stations everywhere. You’ll never have to worry about running out of juice.

Thanks guys it’s a lease so not stumping up the sticker price, got a great deal so worked out the same as m850i that I was also looking at. Different cars I know but I’m a sucker for those doors.
