One dent remover showed me his car which was an e90 it too had a bung in the door shut. Shame really it looks like you can access behind it at least nobody knows it's there but you

Not at all; I think it looks very good, but my unfamiliarity with MS Paint probably indicates how out of touch I am with photo editing.
Time for a refresher course...

When my new wheels get put on the car next week, I'll take some pics and upload. He is a magician!
Thanks bud - I've spoken to him and will swing the car round to see what he can do. He only lives around the corner from me which is useful

Glad all sorted, seemed like a horror story at first.

For future ref (which you won't need because this has been a kick up the arse I'm sure) there is a place called Dent Magician in Shoreham. Just came to mind as I read through this thread
