I have a couple of scratches on the hood. I have applied Meguiars scratch filler on a BMW Z4 with good success but it needed a reapply after 6 months or so. Am I correct in assuming that the scratch filler should be applied prior to waxing? Will it last longer?

Thank you in advance.

Bandaid at best. No fix at worst.
Get a good magnifying glass and see if it is just in the clear coat. IF so, get a really fine wet sand paper and sand it out CAREFULLY!
Then get a number of increasingly finer polishing compounds and an angle polisher with 10" pad and carefully - do not burn the coating and tape off all mouldings and other stuff - polish it out to normal gloss.
I watched this done by a pro at a club seminar and was so amazed at how easy it was I did one myself.
You can fine how to videos on line too.
