Can't help much, but dealers usually know the good ones. Friend's 5-series attests to that. The mobile guys go from lot to lot.

Good luck, sorry you have to ask.

I went to the Pcar dealer and the service rep was pushing the PDR. we agreed on 130 for two panels. Seemed completely negoitable, so if you go to a dealer don't pay the first quoted price. get more than one quote and try to knock another $50 off each quote and see who bites, usually the one who has no cars to work on.

Blinkwatt - Call Keith at Bullseye paintless dent removal at 916.417.6559
He does all of Neillo Porsche's dents and dings and worked a miracle on my Boxster's hood after my wife dropped a boot out of the attic on it. He's the best.

Blink, I definately see the dings because that is the only thing i look at when i walk out to my car. BUT I actually had a comment the other day from someone that said he noticed a couple dings on my door, that put me over the edge and i realized i needed to get this fixed immediately, if not sooner.
