Will it be expensive to fix?

My car has lots of small scratches, but here are a few major dings and scratches that I want to take care....
What do you guys think?

first dent likely will be expensive to fix. don't worry at all about pictures 2, 4, and 6. That stuff happens, it's not a show car. Picture 3 should polish out with a buffer easily unless I misunderstood what I see there. Mirror will need a repaint, shouldn't be too expensive

Yeah...I guess I will get a quote how much it will cost to fix the dent in the 1st picture. It just bothers me so much.

paintless dent repair for pic 1.

touch up for pic 2

touch up + 3k wetsanding for pic 3 + polish/buff

just wetsand a tiny bit, then buff for pic 4

pic 5.....touch up, several times, just tiny bits each time. then wetsand.....again, just a tiny bit. They polish it out.


same for pic 6, same as pic 5.

goto a local body shop and ask for a old fender or body panel. Try to scratch, then buff it out.

next, scratch it, touch it up, tiny bits of wetsanding, than polish it out.


the purpose of this is to teach yourself on a trash body panel you can toss out when ready to move on to your car.

this isnt easy and will require some practice, so this is why im telling to do it this way..........not fuk up your $40-50K car 1st.

learn 1st, then show off your skills on your BMW. Keep reading threads in this section, buy a cheap DA polisher or pick up a used one thats old.
