netgeek is an unknown quantity at this point
i have a black 323ci and need help regarding the paint on the car. i have some marks on the hood and the sides which are due to a scrub i used to cleant it. unfortuantely i used the wrong side of the scrub and can now see som rubbing marks.

i took it to bmw delaership and they said they can remove it as the rule of thumb is that if u cant feel the marks with hand u can get them removed. so the did an exteriro detailing but no luck.

i showed it to mechanics outside and they said they cud take care of it by buffing it.

i need advise if i should go for it. anythinig else i can do and how to clean my car in the future.

Netgeek. I had some scratch marks on the bottom
section behind the front wheel well from some stones
or whatever got kicked up from the tires. These were
felt with my finger nail. I tried to remove them with
Mothers scratch remover and wax but were a little to
deep. Anyway, I wen't to a car wash place that did
wax jobs, detailing etc and had them use their products
with their electric buffers . I was amased that they
were able to get the scratches out. The guy used three
different products in three steps until the scratches
were removed. Bring it to a detailing place and
have them try. Maybe have the whole car done and
then you can do it yourself two times a year with a
good cleaner wax .
