Can you feel the 'scratch' with your finger nail? Like will your nail catch the groove?

The ones that catch your nail are not going to come out.

Meguirs fills/hides the scratches/swirls. I'd looking into some TC...i'v had great luck with it on my customers cars and the PC.

But if you are looking for a cheap fix, meguires is the way.

yeah like he said it wont take out the deep ones but it will look a hell of a lot better for around $5 and a little elbow grease.

Use 1500 grit sandpaper, then buff it with compound.
