T-Cut works great on surface scratches. In the case of a metallic or pearlescent, it'll do a grand job as long as you haven't scratched right through the laquer. When it comes to base colours, as long as the paint hasn't gone through the top coat, then T-Cut will work equally well.

But for anything that goes deeper than that, T-Cut won't help in the slightest. You're still stuck with either trying to patch it up yourself, or paying someone else to do it for you.

You have to rub quite hard and for quite a long time to actually work all the way through the top coat on a flat surface. But if you're working on protruding edges or angles, you have to be careful not to take all the paint of the raised parts.
