Did you hand buff or use a buff machine? Id go at it with a buffer and if you cant get it off, break out the water and sanding paper and do a light wet sand (read up first), and start your detailing process all over starting with swirl and scratch remover, thick polish mabye a couple coats, caranuba wax, and then top with a synthetic. You can try topping it with a paint sealer to help hold everything in but I cant guarentee they will always be gone. It might be a problem spot you might have to keep covering up.

you need to post up some pics so we can see how bad they are as that will determine what process to use.

The rule of thumb is if you can hang your nail on it, its probably a pretty bad scratch and most of it wont come out. Pretty easy logic, eh?

if worse comes to worse...

try getting a VERY VERY fine grit sand paper and dusting some of the top paint off and polishing the hell out of it...

your car is black... it would be very easy to buy the black paint you need and sand the area and repaint yourself...

you'd need a spray gun (80 bucks at home depot great investment)
as well as a decent air compressor (rather expensive but if ya have a buddy w/ one.. then thats what friends are for!

Try Maguires Scratch X. But, if it is too deep, it needs paint. Best bet is to wet sand with some 1000 or 1500 grit and then re clear coat the area or the entire bumper. It would look like new.

For that cost, he can have it painted, old one removed, and new one installed.
