Fixing dents in GTA

Hi, gentlemen,

Some axxhole dented my car while I parked at Yorkdale last week, it's at the rear quarter panel a few inches from the fuel door. Since mine is Black Sapphire Metallic, it's very obvious. Got to fix it ASAP!

Any place you guys can recommend? Is Dent Doctor on Doncaster any good? Generally speaking how much am I looking at?

Much Appreciated

I've been to Dent Doctor (Don Caster) with my previous car. They did a good job on it.

Apparently most of the dent removal places in the GTA are booked solid for months now after the recent hail storms. Best of luck finding one that is still taking orders.

He was able to take out a dent on my trunk that many dent doctors were not able to remove.

Thanks, guys.

I went yesterday, got an estimate, and it said the dent can be fixed and restored to 80-85%. I ain't too sure what that means. Is this normal?

Is the guy you need to go to.

As anyone who I've worked for how often I recommend people. The answer is not very often...but Philan is good.

Give Thilan a call. My buddy had some dents on his previous ride, went to a dent guy who told him "no way, no one would be able to remove that dent'. I took him to see Thilan, and voila, dent gone.

Last time I was at a tire/rim shop in Mississauga (the store name escapes me), the owners are friends of T's, so I told them, yeah, I was told by J that you guys are good. They were like "J?" I said yeah, the paintless dent removal guy, he guys by a one-letter initial". replied the guys, "oh T"

I was cleaning the car today and noticed a dent in the same f**king spot as on your car. Let me know how it turned out since I need to get it fixed too.

I went to see T. last week, and gonna meet up with him to fix it this Friday.

Extremely nice guy, 'm sure that it's gonna be a nice job done by him.

btw, when I was there he showed me another black E92 335i w/ 19" rims that got dented at almost the SAME spot as mine, I mean, wtf is going on here in GTA ???

UPDATE !!

Just went to T. this morning,

he fixed the dent for me in like, 25 mins.

Great job, nice guy, highly recommend !


Chiggy, I think you definitely should give him a call.

(Not tomorrow though, will be busy, 'cause he's got to go to the annual Subaru meet )

Does anyone know a good place to fix scratches on the paint work?
My front bumper got a little bit scratched, the car is white so it's pretty obvious


Thanks

Based on the positive recommendations on e90post.com I went to see Thilan yesterday with 2 dents in my hood. He fixed them in under 30 minutes and I was very pleased with the results. Practically invisible work. Nice guy.
