A few months back when the car had about 1200 miles on it, after a windy rainy Friday I noticed this.

So I took the car to my buddies restoration/body shop. The next day I picked it up.

He told me one good thing about the newer cars with thinner body panels is, they are easier to repair without much work. This was a "painless dent removal". The is no evidence of any damage. Sorry don't recall what I paid, but it wasn't much.

Thanks, I more or less posted this so if this happens to others, they realize the fix is painless...;)

I suffered a dent in the same door on my car two weeks ago. It was a long up and down dent, not just a simple dimple, unfortunately. Somebody hit it with something in a parking lot, and because of the way the car was parked it wasn't another car. Looked into the PDR, but was told that my dent was right where there was a stiffener inside the door, and the paintless tools couldn't reach the area cleanly. Instead, $1600 later I have it again looking like new.

Fortunately, my insurance considered it vandalism, since it wasn't possible to have been hit by a car where it was parked. So only $100 out of pocket.

I had terrible hail damage on my 15 -- probably 50 dimples, on the hood, roof, even the tops of the doors. The PDR rep had it for a *week*, and it came back perfect.
