Paintless dent removal cost

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I have a very slight dent/crease on my drivers door from a parking lot. What should I expect to pay to have smoothed out by a pdr place? I don't think it should cost more than 300 but it seems with bmw's everything is double and triple the price.

I’d say your price expectation is very reasonable. Maybe even less.

I haven't did it for years, but it was $100 for the first one, and less if you had more to do.

It's not on the crease line, so it should be a lot easier for them to get out.

I had a similar dent repaired for $160. It was a mobile dent repair service so they drove out to me which was super convenient.

I would aim for $150 or less. Unfortunately very experienced with PDR. As long as paint isn't damaged, they can really work wonders.

Wishful thinking would be a crispy hundred dollar bill depending on where you live. Do not pay $200+

I used a PDR guy recently here in Jax. Fantastic shop, best reviews, etc. Door dings were $35 each and a more complex multiple deformity dent on an aluminum hood was 225. I was surprised how cheap it was and he even did a little extra polishing on the hood that wasn't part of the quote.

Good news is that the price inflation associated with most BMW repairs usually does not apply to PDR.
