WOW Does the scratch go down to the primer? I have one that goes past the priner into the plastic.

You could try some Meguairs Scratch X first then if that does not work, VERY LIGHTLY try to buff the mark with some rubbing compound but if you use too much it will remove the clear coat and then you will have more problems. After the scratch is out coat it with some wax too.

Try a swirl reducer(clear coat safe) first to see if you can remove most of the scratches. Try it on the bumper first to see how it works. I have a dark burgandy metallic finish on my truck that someone scratched in the shop and twice a year I use a swirl reducer and then wax. It's difficult to see unless you really look for it.
