I've had a ding replaced right near the door handle on the belt line crease and the PDG had to drill a small hole in the door jam. He painted the edges of the hole and plugged it with a rubber grommet. You can't tell if from the factory, so if you trust your PDG and know his work, don't go all "I never drive my car in the rain" on him......

Yep that's what I heard, triple paneled. Not quite that exact description but I was told it's tight in there. I tried driving the car the other day in the rain and it really isn't fun, at

I've had my car in pointless dent removal a few times. It's worth the $$$$ and you can barely tell if at all. One was on the body line and was real bad. That cost me 120$ the middle of the door 80$ and I was in and out in 1 hour no appointment. Deff look into that

This is a lot better than bondo and repainting the whole thing. Dings happen, it's all about how radical you have to get to remove them.
