    Automobile Compound on a soft cloth?

    At least it's on the back, but I totally understand.

    Hi Zaki
    At least is on the back...
    But I’m afraid that because the speaker has a grainy surface you will not be able to use any car product or similar materials.
    Maybe trying to conceal the scratch with a black pencil can help.
    As much as it bothers, if it is a small scratch I would leave it and try to forget about it.

    Yikes, sorry. I have new A3s coming and I hope I'd be as calm as you are about it. Sometimes leaving it alone is the best. Mike may have a solution though? Good excuse to move up to the M series though.

    In the United Kingdom we have a polishing compound called Farcela G3 permanent scratch remover. It’s a thick white consistency. I would try a small area to see if it has any effect.

    a photo would help thinking. to know how bad it is.

    however, if you want it perfect, usually it needs sanding, original color, polishing.....from a professional!!!

    i d say it makes the speaker better and good luck it was the wife

    I don’t think the “grainy aluminum finish” of the S3 will allow an easy fix.

    How about a phone call to Magico before resorting to 80 grit sand paper and a Brillo pad?
