2 questions...

Ive noticed some scratching, or what looks like scratching...but a lil different. it almost looks like the scratches were on the car before the paint was put on, like a "groove" they are smooth to the touch and you can only see them on specific angles. very hard to see, but definitely not like a normal scratch.

any idea or am i outta my skull here...


Second. Last time i got my car back from the dealership, i noticed a scratch on the window, a scratch that i didnt cause...i have no idea how one even makes a glass scratch. anyways, its obviously not that deep and my fingernail doesnt get caught in the groove. is there anything to buff that kinda thing out. I had once tried toothpaste on a windshield and saw some decent results believe it or not...but not sure if this is something i should try with this glass.

Thanks in advance.

#1] Try polishing the car either yourself or professionally. That may help.
#2] Do you have tint? I would just say wash your windows. If it is not too bad, don't bother replacing your windows. I have that problem too.

I have a black car with black tint so I experience these problems a lot.

this isnt something that can be worked out by me, its not the paint, its BELOW the paint.

your answer to number II leaves me baffled, Lol! How do u wash out a scratch on a window?

thanks for your input tho.
