Without pictures it will be very difficult for anyone to provide advice that is not generic. You should find a detailing shop you trust and start there. Perhaps post in the RFD Detailing thread for some advice:
rfd-official-detailing-thread-post-all- ... re-609563/

If a detailer cannot repair the damage, then your next course of action is a body shop. I would start with the detailer first because repainting a panel should be the last resort.

Oh man, looks pretty deep. Do you "feel it" when you rub your hand over it? If it isn't too deep you could probably get a Detailer to do a high speed buff and paint correction. If that doesn't work you would need to get the panel repainted.

It was piano black glossy with barely any swirl marks. You can definitely feel it. It's pretty rough now and dull and looks almost grey/white.

Who thinks of this *****? Hope Karma catches up to them soon.

I feel so bad for you OP. Buying a car requires endless hours of working a job and little sh**heads can ruin it all in a minute.

That's why even though my car is only a $20k car, I still leave it in the garage all day long when not in use.

Hope the repairs aren't too costly.

That is cold, that takes time to stand by ones car. It's sad that pussy-cats aren't man enough to step up.

I doubt getting that detailed won't help.

Why the F would someone do that for? Jealousy or some sort of mental issues, hate these types of people

Thanks guys. Yes I hope Karma makes its way back to them. I can't believe people don't realize this is going to catch up to them and when it does, I hope they never forget what they did.
Unfortunately, I have no idea when or where it happened as I wasn't paying attention to the car the past few days.

Does anyone recommend vinyl wrap? I just thought of that. Would it look like factory piano black?

Thanks man. I'm really not sure if it happened on my driveway or in a store/mall. Wish I could have some 24 hr 360 angle auto surveillance. Not to protect my car but to catch these losers instead.

Is there any recommendations on who to go to fix this and pricing? Thanks
Make better life choices maybe? Always could be a random occurrence, but could be karma biting back also.

My car already came pre dinged, so things like that would never have been an issue.

Sorry, I don't get that part?

I also don't agree about Karma biting back. I'm a big believer of what goes around comes around. I treat others how I want to be treated and my parents raised us with morals and respect for others.

Probably can take most marks out by a dual action polisher with a moderately aggressive compound. DIY or take it to a body shop and ask them to polish it out, less than half and hours work.

Marks like that will take a while as they are curved. It will take a less powerful 3" machine. Prep alone will take 30 mins. An aggressive compound followed by polish should make them less visible. Wet sanding may be necessary if they are deep, but you need a guage to be sure.

Heard of cars being keyed, but "sand papered" is a first (for me).

Where else did the car get sanded?
