Default A6 Avant - Casablanca White - yellowish shift

Hi All

Now that I have the A6 running, I am looking at getting some detailing done and I am a little lost on how to approach this. I think I may need to spend some money on a decent polisher to get what I need, but want to know what you have to say.

The stock white colour has gone towards a yellow/ivory tint all over the car. There are two panels that recently got redone (prior to me buying) and it is the correct W3 color, and it matches the proper white found in the inner door well.

Is this considered Oxidization? I know that the car has lived in high level UV climates for its life and no proper detailing has ever been done. I am rather familier with the Meguiars and Autoglym line but I 've not been able to use Meguires #1 or the Ultimate Compound to change the color, which leads me to believe that the issue is under the clear coat. IIRC the Audi isn't a single stage paint due to no paint coming off on my cloth

Pix below are the hood which represent the rest of the color of the A6, and the panel is the recently painted panel which is the right color

It's just the paint showing it's age. Fading from the sun. Previous owner must not have waxed it much.
