Not your ordinary scuff mark...

Ok so it looks a lot worse in the picture than it does now. None of it catches with a fingernail so I think I should be able to buff it out or something, but after washing and using a lucas spray wax it is still visible. Again not as bad in the picture, I will need to update with new pictures later, but there is still some marks showing.

The way I got it? A car in front of me drove over what looked like a walmart bag, it flew up and rubbed on my bumper going about 40mph. Didn't think anything of it until I got out my car

Very distracting. I do eventually want a different bumper but I can't stand it right now.
Best way to get it out?



I've also got another scratch from who knows where near the rear window, does not catch either but definitely hasn't gotten any less noticeable the way the marks on the bumper did. I will get a picture of that later...

Will need to be polished out... no way around that.

By hand, best you can likely hope for is a reduction, but not complete removal.

If you have access to a machine - then it should be easy to knock those out.

had something similar to that but ironically just below where yours is but just to the right of the fog light, wet sanded it and polished it out except for a couple lines that were just too deep, but to the naked eye and with a little product with filling properties most people could not even see it. it took a lot of polishing with various cuts of polish. good luck hope you don't have any deep ones

Try Meguiar's ScratchX before anything too extreme. I have had amazing luck removing all kinds of scratches and scrapes with it by hand.
