That's really bad... Sorry about that man... I would take that to a body shop. Maybe see if insurance can help.

its hard to tell by the pics...it may just be a paint rub or it may be completely through the clearcoat?

Looks like it could get polished out. See if you can feel the paintwith your fingure nails. If your fingure nails dig into the paint then you need to get it fixed by a body shop, if they don't and feel like it's on top of your Factory paint it can be polished out!

GL bro, Let us know!

hopefully its just a paint transfer from his car. howd you get $140 from him? why so little? i would have demanded $ for a respray of both doors.

those moldings were unscathed right?

GL!
