Laquer thinner will remove it easily.

You would have to intentionally mess the paint up using lacquer thinner .

Super fine grit sandpaper and water - wet sand (gently) then polish.

Try some rubbing compound or a polish that's on the abrasive side. Clay bar might work too. A paint thinner will actually be okay to use as long as you don't leave it on too long. I got a little pint scuff off with nail polish remover once. Just put some on, rub a few seconds and hose off with water. Repeat till the paint is gone. If you have a good coat of clear on the car and it has wax on it, it's pretty well protected

You are correct, but I wouldn't recommend it to a novice.
