I had good results (after some hard work), with this product:

That was on a dark metallic blue Golf GTI

If only in the clear then the Quixx will work but I'd use my own compound, polish, and wax. Not sure what you have available in England, but I use Meguiar's Ultimate as a cheap option here in the states.

If through the paint then will need touch up paint and more work.

Post up some pictures for better reference.

I've use meguires ultimate compound and ultimate polish as both a 1 step and 2 step process. Both are very easy to use either with or without a DA polisher.

The approach depends on the depth of the scratch.

As a rule of thumb, if you can't feel it with your fingernail then it should polish out with some compound that doesn't contain any fillers, megiuars ultimate compound is what I use, preferably with a machine polisher or attachment for a battery drill to save your arms.

If your nail can feel it but doesn't catch on it then it will likely need to be wet sanded before compounding.

If your nail catches on it then it will likely need repainting.

My Sophisto Grey is a bitch, scratch’s in the lacquer bend the light and make them show so easy. Never deep into the paint and some have needed wet and dry, with DA polishing with autglymm super resin polish.

A DA Polisher would be great. I use one and it has worked wonders with Scholl products - A15, a medium hard pad, a medium cut, polish and gloss all in one.

I have just done my X3 completely whilst in lockdown, now moved onto my wife's company car in desperation !! LOL .... she is over the moon, 1st proper machine polish and no car wash people near it.
