Remove Exterior Scuff Marks

I thought that I posted this yesterday (9/21), but I do not see it anywhere so I will try again.
I am looking for recommendations of products to use to remove exterior scuff marks on the right rear quarter panel of my 2016 Camaro SS2. Hate to say this, but I kissed the front bumper of my Murano while backing out of the driveway. Was not a good day. Fortunately no dents on the Camaro, just on the Murano.

if you want to just go to walmart. you can get Meguiars Ultimate compound and some microfiber towels and that will probably be able to remove the paint transfer. its going to take some elbow grease. A machine would work best but if you dont want to spend the money go with the by hand. Also maybe grab the Ultimate polish as well to go over after the compound to remove any hazing the compound may leave behind.

A tad bit of gasoline on a cloth goes a long way
Just rinse it off with water immediately after

I usually start with clay to remove paint transfer. Then I try compound and a machine polisher. If those don't get all the paint off, I wet sand. Wet sanding is followed by compound and then polish.

No one on Earth has detailed more Camaros.

Start with the least abrasive product first (a "cleaner" wax), then try a polish, and then compound. Then go in reverse to remove swirls and get a good waxed finish.
