Ding Removal tool?

I got two medium size dings and wanted recommendation from some of the gurus here on what I should use to get rid of them.

On a quick search, I did find this one online -
http://www.5starshine.com/info-paint...t-removal.html

Is there a tried and test tool that someone can recommend?

I'd take it to a PDR place instead of trying this yourself. With no experience, it could do more harm than good. PDR usually isn't that expensive to get done professionally.

Totally agree, I was skeptical until I had it done. No trace of the ding, for real.

Just can't be on an edge or crease, or someone where the tools cannot get behind. This guy at work has a 335 E93 and a nasty ding near his rear right wheel well. Terrible that someone did that to him.

btw does that dent out product work? It looks like it does on the infomercial, but it doesn't make sense....

I don't think it would work on crease line.

A good PDR guy will be able to minimize but not come close to completely removing those dents, the metal around that area looks like it has been stretched too far.
