That is a b*mmer, hard to see from pics but will any of it polish out, apart from front wing has it dented/creased the door panels. Some people, the cars bright yellow even in the dark it stands out, some people must be blind or drunk!

Know your pain, my stepdad's Astra got car park rear arch pranged earlier this year, but car is old and tatty, so not worth repairing or taking the added hit on the insurance! I just bashed the dent out as best could and added it to the other battle scars!

Most of it might as its just the other cars paint but some of the scrape has gone through the paint on the front door

Quick idea springs to mind, obviously you can buy touch up kits might help but if it’s getting a new new door a cheap skate like me would go for finger nail varnish and lacquer.

+1 to trying to polish some of it out. After I got my car back from having new tyres fitted they left me with these scrapes...

So I used a bucket of warm water and my microfiber wash mitt and just rubbed hard, using a torch helped see where to rub as its a bit dark down there in the car park. Ended up with this...

Hardly noticeable now.

The insurance company are being a pain now too as there was a temp policy set up on this car as it was being loaned to my gfs sister as her car is off the road. They want her temp policy to pay out resulting in a much higher excess

Before and after, Clean and polish up and the damage isnt as bad a first thought, both doors are fine, its just the front wing and bumperImageImage

I don’t know but as it’s fibre glass maybe the front bumper might pop out?
