Replace or repair interior door trim in my F31

I picked up a used 2014 BMW 3 series Sport Touring at the weekend, and on the drive home noticed a few interior scuffs and dings that I'd somehow missed during the test drive.

They're on the front passenger door: just below the window, on the armrest.

And on the left rear passenger door: just below the window.

They're minor in the scheme of things but niggly and annoying.
Can anyone recommend a sane (hopefully cost effective) way to get these replaced with new parts, or otherwise fixed?

Main BMW dealer or an independent BMW specialist?

I'm in Hertfordshire FWIW, in case anyone can recommend a specific garage.

Thanks

I noticed damage on my rear door card when I got home on collection day. Car was 7 months with 8000 miles. Eventually got a full door card replacement by the supplying dealer.

Christ that is bad! You must have been into that drivers seat and away in a shot on collection day, they are pretty eye catching if just opening the door.
Glad you got it resolved though

I'm not sure I'd have the same luck, but good job on getting the dealer to play ball.

Ha. Yeah. It's was the rear door. So didn't check it enough clearly. I just wanted to get in and give it some beans. Lloyd Blackpool were amazing at sorting it.

I had an issue with a cracked plexiglass that covers the speedo etc when I first bought my AUC. Didn't notice during test drive but did when picked up. The plexiglass can't be changed it's the whole unit at 800.00 parts only! So offered to make a contribution in cost to get it sorted locally instead of driving 3 hrs to Oxford again and possibly staying overnight whilst they replace. You could offer to contribute?

sadly cant repair, i looked in to that on my e46 same material, ended up with buying better condition door cards but BEWARE tone might not match, had this debate with bmw cant gurantee to match due to shade of paint and they order from different suppliers

That must have been one destructive toddler.
