I think an electric buffer should do the job, thats what my friend did on his car and it worked fine.

take your car to a good bodyshop, and ask them for an estimate... most of them will give it a buff for free, so that they can give you an accurate bid. Sometimes, the buff is all that it takes to get rid of the problem.

use spot remover and it would probably get off the red from her crappy ass paint that came off her car...

then if it scratched it, use touch up paint to fix it.

If there is no body damage or real paint damage just that cars paint on yours, buff it out with a simple compound sold everywhere.

stereo glaze compound would also take it off...


go to your dealer and just tell them that you want the right stuff to take out the scuff..

if they try to charge you, tell them to stfu and that they aren't supposed to.
