    Remember, it's an Audi they're working on
    $1500 is a lot more reasonable.

    And being an Audi means nothing. The paint will still be mixed up in house to the code on your car so it's no more expensive than any other car really.
    And the process to fix the damage is the same for any other jappa or american etc car lol.

    Just make sure who ever does it blends the new paint into the adjacent panels, otherwise the colour match won't be that flash.

      I am very very stubborn. (I'm a Sophist)
      I wasn't affected by it, I drove off straight away and was my normal self, kids at school found out and still can't believe what happened (Gossip, I didn't mention it once)
      I actually want to have a chat with the Maori pointing out all the things he's done wrong.

        Ahh, so they are panel replacers, not panel beaters haha.
        Your door really doesn't look bad at all. Most of it you could probably pull out with a small suction cup.

          Yeah, I haven't tried yet, My neighbor used to be a panel beater and he said I'd have to take the interior door panel (Forgot what it's called) off and push it out, after I have taken the bump strip off, he mentioned that it's probably going to pop back in because it's gone through the line of the door.

            Yea if you want to have a go at it yourself, the easiest way is to whip the door card off and push it out from the inside.
            He is probably correct, it may pop back in (called 'Oil canning' when dents do that) because the metal is now stretched. But the first thing to do with that dent is to get it back in shape on the body line just above the bump strip. That will restore the strength and rigidity to it. Then you can push out the larger bit at the bottom.
            You'll need a hammer to do the first part though, being on the body line makes it quite tough to push out by hand.

              Yeah, he mentioned that with a mallet it might end up looking worse as the metal might be stretched in the other direction after, plus you'd end up with multiple dents along the line after trying to straighten it as it might buckle.
              I'll tackle it at some later date but now it's not that noticeable (well, it kinda is)

                Lol i definitely would not be using a mallet for that dent. You need proper body hammers and a dolly or two.

                And you're right, doesn't look that noticeable, at least there is no paint missing.
                And at least you managed to polish off the paint transfer on your bumper.

                  Yeah, if you look really closely, you can see a little mark that's left from it.
                  Wasn't paint transfer too, it was more of his tyre.

                      Yeah, I actually might need a new one of them too...
                      It's sagging quite a fair bit on that side now, plus the indicator was pushed right up.

                        It may have just popped out some locating lugs under the headlight.
                        Should whip the headlight out and have a look (much quicker and easier than taking the bumper off)

                              Not as quiet as a sedan inside but it's worth it.

                              I like being able to fit a mattress into the back.
