Thumbs up removing scratches

Best stuff I've found for removing light scratches from the clear coat is Autoglym Paint renovator.

It is a very mild cutting paste/polish, and it works brilliantly, got a scratch out of the roof of the Impreza (after a garage shelf fell on it - don't ask). I was amazed.

Gets rid of the marks under the door handle no problem, used it on the wifes Fiat 500 at the weekend, along with clay bar, and 3 coats of polish/wax :) Well shiney now.

Default scratch

this is made by Simoniz & is a clear coat filler & sealer activated by UV sunlight 1-48 hours so you are not removing any coating

It sounds good, but...is there ever a scratch that doesn't go through the colour layer on a Subaru?
