Best way to remove scratches on a Porsche?
I am hoping to get advice on what is the best and ideally, most affordable, way to repair scratches on a vehicle. (Images attached).
Yesterday I accidentally scratched my Porsche Cayenne GTS, which was a very special gift from my fiancé, against a pillar while I was parking (I am very upset and banging my head right now!) . I cannot bear to tell him, and so I am hoping to find a way to restore it to as it was (or very very close to) discretely, and out of my own pocket.
I contacted one well-received body repair shop and they stated it would be a minimum of $1800 to fix it. I have never had to get this kind of work done, but it seems very high. Is this a reasonable valuation or should I continue to get estimates elsewhere? Alternatively, would it be better for me to fix it myself using paint pens/other materials? And if the latter, what products would you suggest?
I apologize for asking so many questions but I am feeling quite flustered. Thank you very much for reading & any advice you have to share.
