From the photos and what you are telling me, the scratch is only surface level. I would take it to a good local detailer to have it buffed out best they can. I would leave it and not repaint. We...

When I dropped our car off yesterday, my SA said if the timing chain needs to be changed, you are looking at an additional 3-4 weeks out. He said it's a big job.

In cases like these, I would park further in a nearby public parking structure or lot if there is one. Otherwise, I'll go elsewhere. I like a place that offers options.

Overall, I think it is a nice successor to the E70. I just don't like the pop-up style Nav Screen. Looks like BMW is slowly implementing that design across their models.
