I knocked the side of my A5 on the weekend against a bumber for a van :(
Luckly no dents or paint loss, but I do have some scuff marks - any tips on the best way to touch these up/remove them?

Thanks

I'm assuming that you'd tried T-Cut as a 1st attempt? If all else fails, it's probably worth speaking to your local dealer. I grazed the corner of my previous A6 (Silver Metallic) and the body shop resprayed the affected bit / blended it in with the rest of the 3yr old paintwork for just £80. End result was as good as new (except that I still felt like a plonker!)

Depending on the colour or color, t cut can be a bit harsh. Try Scratch X, a lot milder and works very well. Get it from halfrauds around £9. Wax over it afterwards to reseal the paintwork

Second that but use a lint free cloth or you'll put scratches on as you polish them out. Good luck.

A good polish works for me with those types of things.

I recommend a microfiber cloth specifically. These have a much less tendency to scratch your paint. They can be picked up at most auto parts stores and washed and dried gently in your washing machine/dryer.
