The thing to keep in mind while experimenting though, make sure to use a clean, soft, microfiber pad to do the polishing. If it's a light scuff from another car, it's likely that the paint transfer will come off pretty easy. Even with some bug and tar remover. But what you may find, and what I see all the time, is that deeper scuff marks will remain. In this case I'd suggest taking it to a pro and let them look at it. If you still want to tackle the deeper marks yourself, remember NOT to use something so aggressive that you rub more permenant damage into your paint.

Pics would help.

Good luck!
I'll post pics when I get back and can clean up the car. I've tried bug and tar removed. Didn't work.
