My black 159 TI has light scratching in various places, the bonnet being the worst part. I just bought the car quite recently and figured I would get them machine polished out.

When arriving at garage to have that done I was advised against it. They said it had been done previously and they felt doing it again risked going down to the paint layer and causing damage. They also said it's probably best I do not try and t-cut it for the same reason.

the scratches are very light and can only be seen up close, but I know they are there!! :curse: and now I can't unsee them.

What options are there left?

Presumably the garage measured the paint thickness and if the paint is too thin then hiding is a reasonable option. A lot will depend on how deep the marks are. A glaze can hide quite a lot but tend not to be very durable, products like Autoglym Super Resin Polish are durable, easy to buy and can hide minor marks.

There is a range of products made by Glare, not used them but they do seem to have a very good reputation
