    I had a bit of a mishap his morning (won't go into it!)

    Up until today the car was spotless.... Now the rear quarter bumper of my dolphin grey S3 has a few small surface scratches. I have tried the regular T-cut which has got a lot (but not all) of the scratch out. However, there are some small scratches remaining, a deeper scratch right into the paintowrk and one even deeper one that has gone right in. I am gutted.

    What can I do? Do I leave it? Do I get some tocuh up paint? Take it somewhere... What? In an ideal world, I'd have it perfect again, but if I can use products or some kind of filler that would be easier and better on the pocket. I'm not up on this kind of business so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Yes, I'll get out tomorrow (it's midnight now, too dark) and take a snap. It also appears to have caused some cracking in the paint. Cheers.

    Diamond 'flatting' paste is good for scratches that have not broached the lacquer.
    See earlier thread for more info
