I got a door Ding! what should I do?


I'm so pissed, I always park my brand new 2 month old camaro as far away as possible, but today it was not possible and some Douche Bag left a nice ding in my door!!!
I cannot live with that on my brand new car after spending all that money! I want it to look perfect for as long as possible. The problem is, I'm terrified to let anyone fix it, because i don't want them to start pulling my car apart to push out the dent.
Does anyone have any advise? what should I do and how can I not spend a fortune fixing it? also, whats the safest way to repair it?

Is there any paint missing also or is it just a ding. If its just a ding find a paintless dent remover person.

But now, the dent is there, so your cherry's been popped so to speak. Hopefully you can relax a bit now in knowing that "it's over". If you drive the car, weird stuff is going to happen to it beyond your control. Nicks and scratches can drive you crazy, especially on your new car, but if it's on the road, over time, it's going to happen.

I know it sucks, but there's not much to be done except to fix it. Sorry for your loss.

"sorry for your loss" the car wasn't totalled!

well my cherry was popped on my car the day the lawnmower guy decided to scrape his mower on my fender it is fixed now, but that fender doesn't have it's original paint anymore.

and even still today i am paranoid about where i park the car and what not!

i'm driving to College Station tomorrow to see my fiance, and i told her to make sure she double parks on the 2 end spaces next to her apt, so i can have the end space and her car is next to me. i have a feeling i will have to remind her while i'm on my way

Carry 4 orange road cones in your trunk and double park everywhere. It is heart breaking for the first one, but like el ess X said, now it's done & it will happen again. My door ding was in the 3rd week of owning, it is smaller than a dime and no paint was removed, it is still there. Save your $ for mods.

So, there is no paint scratch which is good, and i'm looking up paintless dent removal, but do they have to take off my panels? I hate the thought of them pulling my car apart!

chevy2kss : Trust me, I was wishing that car was still there, cause I wanted to show them how it feels!

el ess X : I have to be honest, this only makes me more paranoid.. now having got a dent, I'm going to make sure i'm always far away! I just wish it wasn't so soon after I bought it!

RedJewel2SS : That really sucks! I would have killed that guy! I know what you mean tho, I do the same thing, if I'm meeting friends somewhere, I make them park next to me at the end of the row. and a lot of times, they'll hold a spot for me if they get there 1st. Its great having a new car, but its stressful!

Haha, I would love to put cones out! I'm scared to double park, because I'm afraid someone will key my car or something, even if I park far away! That sucks you got a ding so soon!
