A little help

Ok, I got rearended last week and it's not bad at all. She slid into me, and amazingly didn't do anything but put maybe 12 scratches on the bumper that are about 1/4" tall by 1/8" wide. It looks like it didn't break the clear coat, so I'm just wondering if those scratches could be removed with some kind of cleaner. If not, would touch up paint be my best bet?? Thanks.

That's going to be hard for anyone to say without seeing the scratches. Depending on the marks, it's possible that they could be buffed out with a machine. But like I said before, without seeing it, I wouldn't know what aggressiveness to use.

go up to your car, rub your finger nail over it GENTLY, if you feel depth a very small amoint can be buffed or waxed out, but if there is a good amount to where it catch your nail then it is probably through your clearcoat. AS GEORGE G. SAID it is hard to say without seeing it. good luck though.
