    Depends on how good a job you're after really. You can buy touch up paints at Halfords that help, but the finish isn't too good.

    Someone on here has posted a link in a similar thread on how to DIY repair and made a decent job of it, maybe they'll post.

    Thanks for that mate any links?

    i saw some spray in halfrds are they any good?

    have you tried to t-cut it out yet?

    you cant just spray straight over the scratch. u have to prime the area then do it. either get a propa job done or just get touch up paint from the main dealer with the exact code for your paint.

    How deep are the scratches? If it's down to the primer or the metal underneath then it's likely that you're going to need to get it painted. If the scratches are light then try and find a local car detailer who might be able to polish them out. Have a look at detailingworld.co.uk

    paints4u supposedly do good touch up kits too.
