Not even 2 weeks old and I have a nasty scratch



Anyone got an idea how I can remove this?

Meguiar's SratchX2.0 or similar polish may do the trick or make it less noticable.

Hard to tell from the picture, but it appears to be just the clearcoat and not down to the paint. Use some compound followed by a polish. It may require the use of a buffer though depending on how deep it is. Sorry, it sucks find something like that!

Neither of those look too bad, do you have access to a DA? If not the Meg's scratch X works well over the counter, just some effort to do by hand. Otherwise 105/205 will clean that right up with a DA.

I think DA stands for 'Dual Action' polisher.
