Help needed to remove/repair scratches on car

I recently discovered a 2-inch scratch on my car (fell prey to vandalism) and wonder what product could remove or repair the scratch. It feels kind of deep, feels like a ridge when I run my finger on it.

I've seen products such as Turtle Wax's Scratch & Swirl Remover and Meguiar's Scratch X, but the label says they are for fine or minor scratches. They are liquid wax and is clear coat.

Do you think they would work for me?

What other DIY products can you recommend? My car is silver by the way.

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

What color? In the past I was using wax, that come with attached "lipstick" what was solid stick that you can rub into small scratches. I think it was Turtle Wax, but had no need for it for some time.
The so-call scratch removers are buffing compounds, that remove residue left on the car, not taken off it.
Good luck.

My car is brilliant silver. Yes, I saw the Turtle Wax Colour Magic that had a 'lipstick'. However, I only saw red & black, no silver.

I wonder what's the difference among this product, Turtle Wax's Scratch & Swirl Remover and Meguiar's Scratch X.
