best way to remove a scratch?

I've got a pretty deep scratch on my bmw, and I don't have the cash to shell out for a professional job. Anybody got any safe and effective ideas?

on some cars i used to apply touch up paint then buff it using a real heavy compound and then wax. it would somtimes blend the touch up paint in or you could just try compuond and waxing it first with a buffer to see how it works out.
