Don't do anything for 6 months. Live with it for a while. From experience, having my son drop a baseball bat on the front fender of my 528i, I got over it and used the dent as a learning experience for him (don't walk near the car swinging a bat). Makes a good story now.
On the other hand, those are big scratches and you can't blame your son.

So I visit the first body shop yesterday for an estimate. The estimator went for a new front door right away because it's pushed enough to open the gap between the two doors. He was on the fence about a new rear door so I asked him to write it up as two so I could get a barometer on the cost. So, with two doors and pulling the bed to properly blend the metallic paint it was $4,600 and about 45 man hours.

Today I have an appt for the insurance company to look at it. I'm expecting them to tell me a guy with a good buffing pad and a nail polish bottle of black paint should have it cleaned up in an about 3 hours......

I was thinking some LineX and a paint less dent repair guy :-)
