How deep are those marks. Some look like clear coat damage and some look like they are deep scratches. If you run your finger nail on the scratches you will know the stent of damage. From what I see it's looking like a paint job.

Turned out the car cleaner had used a sand soiled wet cleaning cloth to vigorously rub the bonnet in a circular fashion leaving similar circular scratch marks on the paint. Ended up repainting the panel.

Would suggest you check with a detailer/ask for a demo on a small portion of the affected area. That would help you decide.

Thanks everyone for your inputs. The cause is not yet clear and the marks are not deep. I took the car to my detailer and he was confident that they could be removed.

Will get it done during my next detailing cycle and keep you guys posted on the results.
