Mein Auto: 2011 328i
I Dinged My Car Tonight

Yeah, and I'm pretty pissed at myself for doing it as well.

Anyway, I've been lurking around these forums for a while now, and I've been meaning to create an account lately. God went ahead and let me hit a metal valet pole tonight, so that I may create an account and ask about it!

It's not as bad as it should've been, but I was pretty stupid for trying to choose a song on my iPad while I was driving anyway.

I've only had this 2011 328i for a week now, and I've already managed to **** it up...

Here are some pictures of the little ding:

What course of action do you guys think I should take to get this ding fixed? I could always take it to BMW, I have warranty on the car but I'm not too sure if it covers accidental damage. I've seen those DIY suction cups, but I really don't think that method is going to be successful in this situation.

Try paintless dent repair. 2 days after buying my CPO 335is I noticed a small ding right where your dent is at the wheel well. $75 and they came to my job. It took him 15 min to get it out

+1. That is an easily accessible location--the wheel well liner takes just minutes to remove. A pro should have that ironed out in no time.
