How bad a scratch are you looking to fix? I've used Meguiar's Swirl-X with excellent results for removing (not simply hiding) very very light scratches and swirl marks. They also have a product called Scratch-X for removing light scratches. Also heard that Quixx is good.

I'd avoid that shit that Billy Mays is pitching.

I love HDTV.

It seems to de-emphasize the scratch on the commercial, but it also puts on a wide swath of "clear coat" that looks just as distracting which makes the paint around the scratch look "wrong." The end result will actually look worse - especially when the surface isn't in "the perfect TV lighting" like in the commercial. You will wind up with an obvious "filled in scratch" and an obvious "cheap fix" of clear globbed on around it.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

Hand buffing attempts may only provide short term relief or remove the mildest scratches and dull haze on the surface. Using the Porter Cable buffer with the appropriate pads and chemicals will do everything from applying a wax or sealant to removing the mild-moderate scratches. The machine is very safe, user friendly and will not burn the paint or clear coat. The key is to use the least aggressive combination to get the desired effect.

Define "sratch". If you can feel the scratch with your fingernail then it's time for the body shop. If it is visible only then start with the least aggressive polish so you don't over-fix the scratch. If that does not work then progress on to a little stronger agent until it is gone.
