Someone made two long thin scratches on the side of my E90. I'm not sure what object was used. Seems a little too thin for a key but maybe the tip of scissors. My car is Black Sapphire Metallic. Does anyone know the best way to fix it or should I have it repainted?

On another thread someone recommended www.langka.com or www.drcolorchip.com but I'm not sure if that would work in my situation.

If you recommend to fix with a touch-up paint, where should I buy it?

There is a channel on YouTube called Sweet Project Cars. That guy did a video (link below) on how to fix this problem. If you have any DIY skills you should be able to fix this yourself. If not you may want to look for a paintless dent repair shop. Sometime their skill cross over to scratch repair. You can also contact a local body shop that you trust to get recommendations. That type of damage should not require a complete respray of the body panels.
