Anyone use a process called Paintless Dent Repair (PDR). Supposedly, these technicians can smooth out a minor dent without having go to a body shop for a couple of hours to have the whole panel removed, replaced, repainted, etc. This process only takes 30-40 minutes and costs about $100-$200.
Unfortunately, I had my bike rack fall on the hood of my X5 and got a 2 inch gash that hopefully can be repaired tomorrow.
I'm using a mobile company called quality pdr located in the Baltimore area. You can check it out at www.qualitypdr.com.
