I would recommend filling with dealer touch up paint to almost level, then if you have the money, let that dry and apply Dr. Colorchip as the final touch up.

Having good luck with linear scratches using both... Colorchip doesn't seem to "fill" as well as regular old TUP.

I've had good luck with using acetone (nail polish remover) to clean off scuff and paint transfer.

I'd recommend cleaning it all off with acetone. Then wash off the acetone. Then buff it out before adding layers of anything on top of the scuff.

Re: Scratched my bumper after hitting wall

It all depends on how upset you are with your wife over this. If there is peace in the house, touch up will work. If it is causing friction, get it properly painted, bite the bullet, pay the bill and be done with it.

Otherwise every time you look at it your blood pressure will go up a little.
