Will it work on doors?  I've got a barely noticable (but driving me crazy)
crease in one of the rear doors of my new A4Q.  It hasn't reached the
point where I'm ready to pay for a traditional repair, but if the Dent
Doctors/Wizards/Bubbas actually work, I'll be a much happier person.  (Now
if I can just get my hands on the ***** who opened the door of a
double-parked limo into me, I'll be really happy.)

Hmmm, I can't even find a mark on the paint, so I should be ok here.

Did you use a local firm or a chain?  Does anyone feel comfortable
recommending any of the chains?  If not, is there anyone in the NYC metro
area that can be recommmended?
