Ouch! That is pretty bad. Did it leave a dent? You can touch it up and there are companies that make a simple compound to eliminate that bump caused by touching it up. It actually works well. I have used the Lanka Blob Eliminator with good results.

Off topic... What is your wheel/tire setup?

I do not know well about the tire stuff... but this is the 18 inches black 9 - cost me 1180$, I keep the original for the coming up winter tire.

About the scratch, my friend said that it is not because of someone opening the door due to there is no mark of force around the scratch, It is like the paint just fell off, which is confusing me.
He said it is the manufactory paint problem, which I should complain to the dealer and blame them for it. (?)

How about your though?
Have a nice day.

It depends on the specific arrangement of forces involved.

If the offender's car was close then most of the force would be projected into the door panel as the door opened and I'd agree with your friend.

If the offender's car was at just the right distance to put your car just inside the diameter of the his door as it opens then I could see that damage being plausible.

You can try going to the dealer but I'd bet dollars to donuts that they'll just say, "We don't warranty door dings."

It looks like the white paint you're seeing is from the offending door. If that's true, the white paint is embedded on top of your paint, which is why you can't simply wash it off. I would highly recommend an easy and relatively inexpensive solution. Pick up some rubbing compound (usually sold in containers that look like car wax) and a couple of wax applicator pads. There will be instructions on the rubbing compound container but it's a lot like applying car wax. This will remove the impurities (ei. offending paint mark) from the surface of your door paint. The supplies should cost less than $10 US and, since you said there's no dent, you should be able to completely remove any trace of the incident!

Some bright people did that to my car too and the car wax trick worked.
