If you want to fix it you really need to do a little more than wax it that does nothing to fix a scratch. search through these threads for some pointers, but this should point you in the right direction.
megs M105 followed up with m205 or any quality finishing polish on a orbital polisher will take care of most fine to moderate scratches and swirls.
I learned a lot just reading post from presidential detail and sweet dreams detail.

It's easy to remove them with orbital polisher.
