    Looks as though it will buff out using Farecla G10 and a high speed buff, doesn't look deep that it needs repaired, any paint shop will "Buff" it for you if you haven't got a Buff, not worth buying in less you've got plenty of cars that need polishing.....

    Had something similar on driver's door just under the window. Had it polished and treated at the dealer. Still can be seen, if you look for it. Maybe results depend on color of car (mine's ebony black). Good luck.

    If its just a mark in the laquer then you should be fine. Try scratchX from the meguiars range, or something similar.

    I had a scratch like this on my front wing and bonnet from me being careless with a hose when washing my car.

    If that doesn't work, go see a bodyshop whould should be able to professionally polish it out.

    If its into the paint then it will be more difficult to shift.

    I would still go back to the dealer/garage and point it out to them , they MIGHT, as a good will jesture polish/buff it out for u ,even just to keep a "valued customer" surley its worth a try??
    If not as they guys have sayed ,either do ure self or get a bodyshop to do for u!
