&*%$#%#$ someone dented my car, help!

Hey guys and gals,

I need some help. I live in NYC and obviously it is very hard to not have some jerk-off scratch or dent you car. On Sunday morning I notice two dents above the back right tire of my car. The dents are horizontal and are in a tough spot. I really don;t know or understand how it happened my only guess is that someone on a bike might have done it. Thankfully, the paint is not chip. I would like to avoid taking it to the dealership or spending more money than necessary to fix it. Here are the pictures, please give me any and all advice on how I might be able to remove these dents. Thanks!

Look for a trusted paintless dent removal person in your area. Its amazing what they can do to restore dented panels. Good luck.

PDR will get that out.

Luckily all you have to do is remove the fender liner and you have full access.

Yea, PDR is pretty amazing these days. And it'll most likely run you less than $100 to fix that.

+1 on the PDR! They took out 8 dents on my old car and left absolutely no signs of it being worked on.

I cringed when they took a pointed hammer and pounded away at the paint but in the end it was as good as new...

That would cost close to $300 here in Eastern VA...I'd guess at least that in NYC. I hope I'm incorrect.

I'm going to contact a few dealers that I found via google tomorrow. If anyone is from NYC or the surrounding boroughs and know of a legit place please let me know. Again, thanks for the advice.

We have a lot of PDR guys here in Phoenix that come to your work/house to do it. I had dents removed for as little as $60. Your looks more involved so it will be a little more.
