    Best Way To Repair These Scratches

    I bought a 12' Audi A7, like brand new minus these scratches. Shy of getting the area repainted (quote was $900), how can I best fix it at home? These scratches are certainly through the paint, again, best option? I just want it to not be as noticable and not spend a fortune at a body shop. I was thinking maybe Dr. Colorchip Dr. ColorChip Automotive Paint Chip Repair Kit - Dr. ColorChip: Automotive Paint Chip Repair Systems

    What do you folks think?

    I would try Dr. ColorChip first. It won't be perfect, but it will look much better. If you still don't like the way it looks afterwords than get it professionally painted.
