i think it's usually $50 for the first dent and $25 for any additional dents after (depending on the dent and where it is located). And remember, cash only. no check or credit card.

Really? Dent Wizard around here charges $129 for each dent per panel on the car. So that's a bargain. The cash only is a bit of a bummer but I should be able to bring enough for my biggest eye sores. Are the prices different for dings? Or is a dent a ding for repair purposes?

If it's really as cheap as jettafock says, then you can put me down for one on the hood and one on the rear passenger side door.

if its the dent wizard that guy that was at impexfest then yes, that is what he charged. it might even be per panel and not dent, which would be even better. I had him do a deep one on my door then there were about 5 dents on the top edge of my trunk from slamming it closed to hard. and that was all for $75. they do great work. also, they will tell you up front how it should look after. depending on where the dent is and how deep it is they might not be able to get it out completely, but they will tell you that.

Count me in for a couple of door dings in my wife's Eos. Yes, I'm going to bring a gasser to TDIfest :eek: At least it's a VW :rolleyes: The price we have to pay to get a kitchen pass.;)

I am in. The trunk lid where your fingers land is very soft. My trunk has been stiff from day one and pulling it closed causes finger dimples. I will remove the liner to save cost.

When it is fixed I am going to glue in an aluminum plate.

you removing the trunk liner wont save on cost. but it would speed things up for them by 2 minutes.

Don't know if there's a point in doing the one on the back door of mine.

It's a deep one, don't know how they did that one, but lower in the door I also have a bit of damage from a truck part that got bounced off the side of my car on the rear edge of the front door and the front edge of the rear door. That one I know cannot be repaired paintless, since the paint was chipped off.

I'm thinking the skins will need to be pulled off to fix those.

!@#$% parking lot bandits!

Speaking of bandits, a few years ago, I watched someone pull up in a Benz with paper tags and just throw the door open as if the space next to them was empty.

Even if they did not care about someone else's car, you would think they would care about their own!

I'm adding myself to the list. I have a few little dings that need to be pulled out. :)

If there is anyone following this thread and is on the fence or skeptical of this dent removal process, don't be. It is almost worth the money to watch the guy do it, it is like part repair, part magic show. I asked one guy how long it ook him to learn it, and his reply was that it took him 3 months to remove his first dent unassistianted.

It is pretty impressive to watch. Definitely an art form.

I don't know when the dent guy will be there, or even if he's going to be there. I'm hoping for Sunday. I'll add you to the list.

Sorry everyone.
