Help!!! Scratch in Paint!!!

So I just got out of the gym to find a nasty scratch on the passenger door of my BMW X6. It seems to have penetrated beneath the clear coat. Can this be buffed out? How is this repaired?

I moved your question over to the detailing forum. Post a picture so our detailing experts can comment.

If you can feel it with your finger nail it's not going to buff out even with wet sanding. You might want to see a detailer to see if they can fill it with clear wet sand and buff
