Default scratches on brand new car 07 camry

I have some scratches on Titanium silver metallic paint (not deep, but
clearly
visible) resulting from using the wrong side of a dishwashing sponge


If any of you have a strong recommendation for a particular brand of
rubbing compound, I'd greatly appreciate it.


Thanks,
Andy

any WHITE rubbing compound ought to be all right, and use it fairly gently.
But don't use the rusty red type, it's much too abrasive for a newish paint
job.

On the other hand, if the surface paint is really penetrated, you might try
pushing it back on the dealer and tell 'em it was delivered that way.....
(nah, you might be cheating the dealer, and that's not nice.)

================================================== ====
Might not work, but there are new generations of polymer based
products, some of which claim to fill minor surface scratches.
The benefit is that you would not be removing mil thickness from your
clear coat which presumably could result in longer life for the finish.
Sometimes they call their "wax" products a "polish" where it is not
actually abrading the surface but creates a similarly glossy surface.

I used Fill-n-Glaze on my 99 Camry with some light scratches.
Worked very well. I think it is made by 3M.
