If its not gone through the clear coat then you could probably get it polished out with a machine.

You will need a buffing machine to get it out. Good luck.

Don't know if this comment is tongue in cheek or what? but I can't see it pursuading members to post any quicker to your questions..

It wasn't even up a day and I've only just seen it (and I look A LOT at this site )

I have used Meguiars ScratchX successfully in the past to remove swirls in the lacquer, but will admit it is not much good for something deeper.

Have you tried buffing the paintwork with HP sauce - great for swirl marks.

I'm going to try some Encona Hot Pepper sauce on my rims.
