Pin dents

Picked up a coupe of pin dents on front passenger door.

Shows up in sunlight against the sparkling graphite paint. very annoying.

What's the best and cost effective way to get these sorted ready for next shopping trolley?

I have used Dent Devils in the past and they have performed miracles for me on my front wing, drivers door and even the rolled edge of the rear wheel arch

If they can't remove the dents then they will not charge you for trying

Will give them a call.

Did they have to remove any trim to get behind the panels or was it all done on surface?

On the door, the dent was quite high so he was able to get in through the gap between the glass and the door before then gently "working" the dent out.

If they need to take the trim off they will (it's not exactly difficult).

I think the biggest challenge is getting access to the other side of the panel. On my E91 I had a couple of dents on the rear panel that were impossible to get to as they were on a box section so hence the recommendation as these guys know what is possible and what isn't unlike some who will "give it a go anyway" which often makes things worse
