I noticed today someone hit my passenger side door with I guess there door leaving a quarter sized dent and a scratch. Very disappointed. I called my dealership and they do have access to panthera metal paint. My question is, has anyone had to get a similar repair yet? What’s the estimated cost? I have a $500 deductible and I’m trying to decide if I should report it or not.

You may be a perfect candidate for one of those suction devices that removed small dents. They have them at hardware store but I don't know how well they work. Good luck. What terrible luck. Whoever did it is a DB. You know you dented someone's new car. You did nothing claim your mistake. You just drove away and left them with the bill.

I'd look around for a paintless dent removal person in your area. Start there. The scratch will be much trickier to fix than the dent. Depending on how big/noticeable it is it may be easier to just touch it up.

Thanks for the replies. I have a paint less dent removal scheduled for tomorrow. A local body shop eyeballed it at 1800-2200 if a traditional paint job and said Kia would be higher. He is also the guy that told me not to spend my money that way and referred me to a paintless dent removal company. I’ll update on how the paint looks once scratch is buffed out.

for $200 the paintles dent repair company dud a great job. Cant tell anything was ever there and I was assured the integrity of the paint was intact.
