I have a little bit of experience in this subject....

I once worked for a car supermarket(),and they bought a kit which repaired chips in windscreens.It was a bl00dy good bit of kit,and saved them a load of money.

The company that made the kit also demo'd a window scratch remover kit.It consisted of various grades of emery cloth and polishes.You started off with the coarsest cloth and you gradually went down to the finest polish.The kit definately worked,but it was a very long process,and if you weren't carefull you could distort the view through the screen by taking away too much glass in one spot.The company I worked for decided not to go for the kit in the end......

I have heard of people removing light scratches by using Brasso,but wether this is based on fact,I'm not sure!.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
