The car is a 2015 Subaru Forester with Pearl White paint. I got quoted $250 to fix this, but I am wondering if it's just easier to do it myself. I am looking at a 3M Scratch Removal System on Amazon and wondering if I could get away with just this? Or would I need to re-paint it also since it looks deeper than surface level at some parts.

Not sure if I should just suck up the $250 and do that or try to do it myself

You might try something like this

u/harrison_wintergreen · 2 pointsr/personalfinance

the repairs you describe are not necessarily a money pit. fixing the scratches is purely cosmetic, and you could maybe do it yourself with a $50 kit from AutoZone to save money.

sounds like you have car fever and want an upgrade.

a couple weeks back, i went to a drive in theatre and scratched the shit out of my car by turning into a pole. i was really pissed and figured the damage would easily cost 200+. it actually looked very similar to the scratch on your car.

i looked around the internet and found the 3m scratch removal system which i bought at walmart. i attached it to a drill, followed the instructions and basically the scratches were non-existant (except for one really deep one). i would totally recommend you trying it (it'll save you some money and an eye-sore)

If it's just paint transfer, you should be able to clean it off then polish the surface. If there's any scratching into the clear coat, I've heard good things about this 3M kit:

Hi all!
I have my end-of-lease inspection coming up in 5 days. 2014 Chevy Cruze in perfect working shape. Two items I know of:

  1. two quarter sized paint scuffs on rear bumper from someone tapping me with their license plate

  2. one long (18") clear coat hair-thin scratch on roof

    Both areas are tough to see unless you really look for them, especially roof. But I imagine an inspector will see them.

    Any tips on dealing with these? Today I ordered this:

    Any other thoughts or experiences when turning in a lease? I will be washing/waxing the car/wheels and detailing all around, vacuum/dress interior, etc.

    EDIT: Seeing that this 3M kit requires sanding, I canceled for now. Waiting to hear from you experts on what might work...thanks!!! :D

3m makes a polishing kit for use with a power drill if you don't have a DA polisher. Comes with sandpaper, compound, Polish, and polishing pads. Just be careful to keep the pad moving. Lots of YouTube videos.

Scratch Removal Kit
It should work as long as the scratch hasn't gotten to the actual paint. I Used it on my motorcycle to clean up a scratch. Just need an 20v Drill. It's just a wet sand and buff process but it comes with all the stuff you need.

I recently saw a 3M scratch removal system that was recommended on another post. I'm going to try this on my black Toyota 4runner. They are available on amazon.

The reviews seem overall positive.
