ahhhhhhhhh, i just scratched up my new 5 series!!!! THE PAIIINNN!!!! I cringe everytime i think about it. Is there any way i can go about fixing this scratch other than getting the whole car repainted again, or getting it done for 500+ bucks? i hit the damn wall. These parking spaces in hong kong are terrible. please let me know while i sit here on my office desk thinking of the bad ive done to my baby
how badly is it scratched?, if it is light you can probably buff it out with some wax

Last Tuesday my 528 drowned in a flood (lost engine plus) I did not contemplate the idea of killing; Take it easy on yourself and I am sure there is a neat and a professional way to fix your car. D3 has the right idea for your car. Wish you the best of luck fixing it
rotary buffers can remove insanely deep scratches (down to primer) If they cant fix it by buffing alone, they'll probably touch the paint up, let it dry a day or three, then heat it up with the buffer to smooth out the look of the paint.
Wetsanding is a little much IMO... a detaling shop that can get the scratch out while buffing your entire car is a little nicer.

A forum is a place where people can share their experiences and ask for help with their questions. If you have nothing nice to say, then don't say it at all !
WHILE I UNDERSTAND YOUR FRUSTRATION (NO ONE OUGHT TO THINK ABOUT KILLING THEMSELVES OVER A SCRATCHED CAR; I AM SURE SLEEPY USED THE TERM TO VENT HIS ANGER OVER IT NOT THAT HE WOULD KILL HIMSELF) I THINK YOUR RESPONSE TO SLEEPY IS TOO ABRASIVE......
WE OUGHT TO BE FRIENDS AND FAMILY ON THIS FORUM .....EACH MEMBER IS TRYING TO HELP ANOTHER AS MUCH AS HE CAN/KNOWS AND THIS IS THE BEAUTY OF IT SO LET US ENJOY AND PLEASE TAKE IT EASY....I KNOW (FOR SURE) BASED ON YOUR E MAILS TO ME THAT YOU ARE A VERY NICE GUY
