    Depending on if you can find a match to finish and colour= car paint or nail polish may work on small scuffs etc

    My favourite is to get some decals,stick them over the scratch (and on the other side for symmetry) and nail polish over.

    Turtle wax make a product specially for this. It comes with a polish and wax stick and you buy whatever colour matches your car or bike. It's not expensive and should be easily available from a decent car accessory shop (or Halfords if you're stuck!).
