A good body shop can buff out pretty serious scrapes. It would be good to see a picture. If you have a Mac, you need to click on the picture, go to file on the top menu bar and click on export. Then export it to pictures. Then you can upload by clicking on the attachment button. If you have a PC, I can't help you.

I also understand the paints are water based and they can be more difficult to paint. Avoid a respray if you can.

Finally I was able to post image on bimmerpost. Here is the link.
