Recently, my 3-series was vandalized with orange spray paint on the front passenger side window. I initially tried getting it off with a soft scour pad. I finally got it off with a wet rag of mineral spirits. However, the soft scour pad left tons of scratches on the window as I was scrubbing furiously to get it off. Does anyone have any suggestions for removing these scratches from the window? They are pretty noticeable.
Thanks!

You might want to try a fine buffing compound, that is about all I can think of. I am sure some more people will chime in here with more options.

That's very unfortunate that that has happened to you..I don't believe there is a fix to scratched windows..

Do you have glass coverage w/ your insurance policy??
