Dents and Dings
I have done the absolute best I can to keep my Outblack as nice as the day it rolled off the assembly line. However, others have seemingly made it a priority to add some custom features to the sides of it. I have 5 door dings on my car. It pisses me off royally each time I get a new one, and I've never caught anyone doing it. They better hope I don't either. I don't understand why it's such a magnet for careless and inconsiderate people. I can drive my beater F150 anywhere and it's never so much as received a scratch from a parking lot. What's the best way to pop them back out?

Watch the local forums for a car meet where they have a guy that removes dents. I had a few removed last Aug for 40.00.

Or call the dent wizard or any number of companies that remove dents.

What sucks is that it'll likely happen again.

Yeah, it will happen again, it did for me. I had my whole car PDRed when I got it. Check with local body shops. They usually have a paintless dent removal guy.

1) PDR
2) I think our cars use thin sheet metal... more susceptible to dents/dings.

Just leave them for now until hail comes and then maybe you can have it all done and paid for by your insurance comp. Minus deductible(Mine is $50, was free)

I have a few and that's when I'll go get it fixed

There is a video on youtube that uses a can of compressed air (turned upside down so you are really cooling the sheet metal with compressed CO2) & a heat gun to get dings out.

I tried it on a large ding on my moms Volvo with no success. May be worth a shot since it is super cheap!

That and his F-150 is probably a good bit higher off the ground and out of the way of the bottom of neighboring cars' doors.

Yeah, my F150 is a tank. I await the day someone rear ends it and gets a load of the hitch knuckle that is on there. It will be the biggest win ever.
