Car got keyed, looking for a good shop to repair it

Hi guys, my car got keyed at the Go Train parking lot in Oakville.
Both doors on the left side - driver's and rear.
I've been parking there for the last 4 years and this is the first time this has happened to me. Anyway I am looking to fix the damage quickly as the winter is coming soon. The damage done is to the point where the doors must be painted, there is no way around it like buffing, polishing, etc., it is too deep. I got one quote from one shop not far from Oakville and it is $700 for two doors. If anyone knows a shop in GTA who does decent, quality job and is not crazy expensive, that would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks!

UPDATE:

Hey guys,
Just wanted to post an update on the status of my car here.
I got the scratches fixed by Kevin @ GTA in Detail.
The entire job including the scratch repair, polish, wax, etc., was done by Kevin alone.
He has done a remarkable job and I am really happy with the way it turned out.
I did not have to re-spray the doors which saved me a significant chunk of money as you can imagine.
The total I’ve paid was $150.
Kevin is a terrific guy who knows his stuff and I can totally recommend him to anyone looking for a quality detailing service in the GTA area.
Thank you all who responded and supported me in this little annoyance I had to deal with.
Much appreciated, guys!

Budds is expensive. Going to a dealership is going to be far more expensive than an independent shop.

Thanks man. I do not believe it is fixable without professional paint work.
But here is the picture just for you guys to have an idea of the actual damage.
I only have a picture of the driver's door for now.

it looks like its to deep to diy fix. unless you have some touch up paint.

check with kelvin at gta in detail, He's going to be detailing my car and I was going to fix the scratches myself until he told me he'd fix it.

Not always true...

I got my trunk lid installed by them and they were cheaper than ALL of the indy shops I called....

Mind you, I asked for a reduced hourly rate and estimation as to how long it would take them...

Did you know someone that works there because BMW doesn't paint in-house they send it out to their 'BUDDS repair center'

Are you sure that scratch is down to the paint? Could just be the clear coat. Meguairs M105 or scratchx with a porter cable might be able to take care of it.

Garage List
Dr Colour Chip and a bit of time + Plus a quality polish and wax job by Kevin at GTA in detail would fix that right up.

I think you were at Kevin's shop last month getting a quote while my car was getting detailed. He knows his stuff. Glad your car is ok.
