Was the car you hit white? It looks lik its just a few scratches. A white celica crashed into my parked car ones and made lots of similar marks, a lot of elbo grease scrubbing it actualy washed 90% of it off. Is it actually dented because it doesnt look that bad on the pics? Is the mark mainly his paint stuck on your car or is it your paint missing?

Ouch...Sorry to hear that.
Try to pull the door panel off and bang it out the best you can. Make sure you hit from the inside and on the outside use something with a little weight (wood probably won't work) as a backing. This will keep you from making dents from the inside with your hitting tool (hammer). Use a towel on the backing block to keep from scratching up the paint any worse. Be patient with it and don't hit too hard. Try to get the lighter blue paint off. You will most likely end up having that re-sprayed.
I don't think you'll ever get that back to perfect just by banging it out. You may end up using a little Bondo on it. If you do, don't Bondo over the paint. Remove all of the paint and then Bondo it. It needs to be repainted anyway so you're at a loss there.
Hope this helps..
I actually didn't recommend the suction cup, but give it a try. Just be prepared to pull the door panel and bang from inside if it doesn't work.
