Door Ding Repair

Anyone know someone that can fix a door ding in the rear quarter panel of an E92 in Cerritos / OC area of California? Some jerk's door dinged my car at work. Anyway it's the size of a quarter or so with a crease that less than a centimeter in center.

Would greatly appreciate it! Looks like an eyesore on an otherwise pampered car.

I can't confirm this, but I saw a video once where a guy used a heat gun on the ding then after a bit, shot it with an upside-down can of compressed air (liquid cold) and the dent popped out. YMMV.

Hmm. don't think so. Looking for a reasonably priced solution that doesn't require me to do more damage to the car. So..

Looking for a repair shot to fix a door ding in LA/OC/Long Beach area. Thanks.

the smaller the ding the chances are slimmer for removal without actually painting.
bmw has hood and rear quarter panels covered in double sheets of metal and good luck with that.

ding removal techniques can be applied to almost every ding but be aware that they can almost never be removed 100%.

Videos you will find are for the best case scenarios which is usually not the case.

Door Ding

Looking for a body shop that can do a good job for reasonable amount that will paint if they have to. Not looking for "free" or "no paint" Any recommendations will help.

I'm not DIYer so I don't got all the tools and time to DIY and I'm not going to experiment with my car. Thanks for the help, but I want a professional to fix it.
