Nice looking car there - I especially like the side profile of the IS it looks great (third picture).

I'd have thought for the worst of the bumper scuffs you might get a bodyshop to have a look. Trouble with things like that is if you just paint over them you can still see the shape of the scrape, it could do with a bit of filler and sanding to make it go away completely.

For the other scuff you could try that t-cut for metallic paints, I was dubious but a mate had some really good results on his SLK.

If its on the surface (someone else's paint on your car, and no physical indentation/scratch to your bumbper), then t-cut seriously works wonders!

Tried it and test myself on my own car - and it wasn't even the t-cut for metallic paints. Just bog standard t-cut.
