If you go to the General Maintance Thread, the Washing&Waxing section and ask your question you might get some different ideas. There are some "pro" detailers that post there quite often.

I have used some Meguair's products in the past...on a jet black mint Harley, and had good results.

Assuming the scratches/swirls are light, you can do some good yourself with some micro fiber cloth and a good scratch remover.

But as mentioned, a good body shop may be the best bet.

I agree about the pro but have had good success with Maquair's scratch and swirl remover.
