Look for a paintless dent doctor or something like that. Local place did mine and you can't even tell.

PDR is the way to go if you can find a reputable guy

I have had 3 dings in 4 months with this car. I am always careful where I park, but this car is like a magnet. There is a local company here that will come to you and fix it. They charge a little more for this but do pretty good PDR work. Look for a company like that near you and you'll be good to go.

To me there is nothing more aggravating than inconsiderate people. The first thing I do when getting out the car is to make sure (even if the car next to me is a POS) is to not hit them. When my kids get out I always tell them to watch the other cars.

I'm looking around to see who in my area has a good rep for this kinda stuff. Once I find a good one .. I plan to befriend this fellow quickly hehehehe..

I've only had the car three weeks ... and as angry as I was when I spotted it. The shitbag (pardon my french) that did it is lucky he was not around.

have had the car less than a week, < 200 miles and I have a door ding. You can't see it until you get a good reflection off the door. Took it to my dealer today to see what they could do. While I was there, he showed me the door ding on the camaro on the show room floor. He mention 2 other buyers with similar door dings. Are these cars overly suseptable to dings? Getting paintless dent removal done tomorrow. maybe I need http://www.dingguard.com/ eh.. shrug
