We'd have to see to know for sure, but buffing and compound is a safe bet. The pros can tell you what to use.

I had a few spots like that on my car, almost like the clear coat is a bit hazy or very lightly and thoroughly scratched? Five minutes with a foam applicator pad, meguiars scratch x and some elbow grease should do the trick for you. The spots I treated yesterday actually look better than the rest of the paint now...guess I'm gonna have to do the whole car now, lol.

Rubbing compound followed up by meguiars polish. Works beautiful every time
