    Hi to all, Iv got an A3 in brilliant black, so it has become really noticeable when some "pikey" decided to run his key along the driver side. I took it to audi where I live and they say that I would have to get the whole panel buffed out, the actualy scratch is only about 9inches long on the front panel.

    My question is, is there any product that I can use to reduce the scratch or cover it up (some sort of black fill in pen or sumthing)?

    thnak you.

    Needs machine polishing (and that may not completely remove it), trying to touch it up would leave a noticable long black line rather than a scratch.

    hi

    all depends how deep the scratch prob will need machine polishing but still might not come out . But i would never try and paint it out will only make it look worse in my opinion....

    i had a few on my car i used auto glym paint renovator and then auto glym polish on it after and got most of mine out, but my car is silver so never shows as much as a black car , good luck...

    It will usually help to use the same colour polish as the car...can't remember the what its called but its got a lip-stick which may cover it ..i think its turtle wax and you put the lipstick over the scratch and then use the polish on top.

    But run your finger-nail over the scratch and if you can feel it, that means its probably to deep to polish out !
