My car was parked at the station when a hail storm dropped a sh*tload of golfball big hail stones on my car

Going to see an expert today... Do you guys prefer a "smart repair" or new parts (cost extra)...?

My car got hit at work one time. Took it to a good shop and got the repairs made (no new parts) and you can't tell there was ever any damage.

We had a huge hail storm blow through here Tuesday. I managed to slip home for a while and avoid catastrophe. Hammered the hell out of the cars here at the office. I have had some damage on my kid's cars in the past and have had real good luck with a talented paintless dent removal guy (PDR). Maybe some PDR person in your area who knows what there doing?
