Spending a fair bit of money to install a larger beam and possibly
reinforcing the foundation and supports at either end of the beam.
Another possibility is to calculate if the post can be relocated to a
position that interferes less with the car doors. It's still a fair
bit of work as a new footing has to be cut in through the slab and
most likely the post will only be able to moved a short distance
away. Still, it's another possibility.

The post (lally column?) is there because the architect who designed the
house said it is needed because of the size and type of the girder that
the post supports. Removing the post may cause the girder to fail, or at
least sag. You should have an architect look at it and recommend any
changes needed, or if it can be done at all. More than likely it would
require the installation of a more stronger girder for the span.
