I've used rubbing compound on an old dark red chevy the family had. Had
a neigbor with a maroon VW Fox with oxidation also. Same trick worked
for him. Seems that the red/yellow family of paints suffers from this
(I'm told by people who know). That is why yellow also gets that faded
look also. I'm starting to see it on the red '90 civic at home. (the
parts runner, until we can get another audi!)
