Depend how deep scratch is. Lighter one can be removed mostly thru polishing. Anything down to primer need respray.

Can try KGC workshop at amk

For light scratches, just keep on accumulating.

For deep scratches, use touch up paint.

After 5 years, respray the car.

Those hairline scratch can be polished away. Deeper scratch that exposed the primer u need to respray.

Car interior belongs to you.
Car body outside belongs to others.

when i was a new car owner donkey years back, my heart ache whenever there are dents, tings or knock... even 5 cents scar i will send for spray or repairs

but it comes to a point i give up, it is unavoidable especially u park at public spaces. now my car has knocks here and there, i don't really bother anymore.

like one said earlier, the next morning, the pain is gone.

If you can scratch until like that, you probably don't bother about the car a lot, so I suggest you save it.

I'm currently in process of patching my friend's one via touch up paint... have to do very slowly but at least now not eyesore.
