Scratches Under Door Handle

I purchased by e93 last year. The paint and wheels were pretty neglected. Over the year (and with the help of this forum and its sponsors teaching me how to clay, polish, seal, etc.) I have restored the natural luster to the paint.

As I was admiring the finish after a wash I realized that the only area that really needs attention is the indentation on the door directly behind the door handle. There are tons of micro scratches there (as if repeatedly scratched by someone's nails when they were opening the car door). I have noticed this same thing on many other cars. How do the pros suggest getting this area cleaned up? It is obviously too small and area to hit with the Porter Cable and I am not interested in removing the door handles to get to it. Scratch X by hand maybe?

Thanks in advance for any advice/input.
