    Typically, if you can catch the scratch with a fingernail, a respray is in order.

    spend the $$ on a professional. It otherwise is likely to be an eyesore you will often fixate on.

    You can try spot buffing the scratch, it'll make the edges rounded and therefore make it less apparent.

    No suggestions to try Dr. Colorchip yet?

    I'd try the $50 solution just in case it works well enough to avoid several hundred $$ at the body shop. If the Dr. doesn't fix the scratch you can still take it to the pros.

    Really depends on how discriminating of an eye you have. Also, is this a daily driver? If so, you know the rule...get dent/scratch in car, take in for respray$. Drive car for two weeks and someone else dings you


    Dr. ColorChip Paint Chip Repair, repair paint chips, touch-up paint, Doctor Color-Chip Paint Chip Repair

    Dr Colorchip may be just the answer for you. Here is a link ^

    I read somewhere that a detailing clay can get rid of scratches, not sure if its reallll deep though.

    Try using touch up paint on it then maybe sand it down so its flat. then go over with M105 and then M205.
