I think it needs reshelling as there must be something more to it than meets the eye.

OX if thats metalic paint its going to be hard to hide it yourself. But a good scratch repair will get it 100% you might have to shop around but guys are out there . Mt cousin has two bmw , and the garsge is not to big. Pulling the saloon out he catched the mirror on the wing of the other bm .It looked like your picture .But the paint chap did it ,Cost £100 but well worth it ..

If you cant get it off, go along to a bodyshop or garage and they will buff it off for you.
Disagree - used this method on my Maserati with good effect. If you take your time and are careful it doesn't do any damage. It does rely on a degree of skill and patience.

If the mark is from another car, i.e on top of the OG paint, then polishing it off you are potentially polishing an equivalent amount of the surrounding OG clear coat off as well.

IKR, first thing I do if I see a mark on paint is reach for the T cut and buff it with a rag, wouldn't even think twice about it.

Procrastinating over buffing off a potential dirty mark is quite funny. There is a small chance though that if he T-Cuts the mark, that his car may vanish into a black hole and take him and his house along with it though, I think that may be what his worry is?

Wet your finger and give it a rub. The stuck on stuff will come off and you can see what damage there is. Looks to me like T-Cut will do it.

Almost looks, to me, in the second pic like a smear of rubber or similar, in which case even Tar Remover (or neat petrol on a rag) would remove it. Certainly T Cut would and wouldn't damage your own paintwork either. Only downside of that is you will probably have a small shiny area and will end up having to T Cut the entire car to match!
