^Thanks but these scratches are deep. I like the repair philosophy of my shop as well - 1. As good or better than OEM and 2. Can not perceive the car was ever repaired. Those simply are not achievable in any way with a detail/correction/buff/etc.

Still no ETA for getting the car into the shop but it sounds like it is getting close...
