About two months after taking delivery someone dinged rear quarter panel just above the bend at the wheel well. I called the dealer and they quoted $185 thought too much and called local auto body shop I have used in the past and they just recommended someone they use. He quoted over the phone $175 if diameter not greater than quarter.

He came to my house and I watched him remove the deep dent, it was amazing, I can no longer find where the exact spot of the dent is. BTW - those videos you see on-line would have never worked.

It took him about an hour using hot adhesive, suction cup, and hammer. He stated that the location of the dent he was not able to push the dent out from behind, why it took longer than it should. Also must be factory applied paint, if aftermarket the paint will just come off. At the end he charged me $150, well worth the price, but $88 would have been better.

Good luck, I am sure it will look just like new with the exception of a lighter wallet.
