Well no harm in trying. I've had some success with AG SRP for minor marks, father in law has used some of the G3 scratch remover stuff which worked for him...

Would presume a DA would give you better or easier results, but no harm in using a bit of elbow grease if you've not got one...

It's hard to tell by the pictures. If they are marks that are sitting on top of the paint then something like Meguiars Ultimate Compound should remove them. If it's because the paint has been scratched off then it'll need re-painting

What pad would you recommend? I got a dual action one, but it seems hardly do anything, is the challenge dual action from Argos, not the best, but heard good review for beginner

For those type of marks I'd wrap a MF cloth round my finger, put a bit of compound on the cloth and then rub it over the scratch with lots of pressure. If they can be removed without wet sanding or painting then that'll be the quickest and easiest way to do it

Just tried with the ultimate compound and applied with the application pad, not rubbing very hard, not seems to have effect

You should be able to tell if the scratches have gone through the paint by runing your finger nail across it. If your nail dips into the scratch then chances are it's gone through (especially if the scratch is a different colour) if it feels like the scratch is on top of the paint then it should be removable with some compound. In some cases scratches can be removed by wet sanding. However, yours look too deep for that. They'll need touching up or the bumper needs respraying
