I got the first estimate to replace a (IMHO) small dent in my car. It came in at a bit over $800. Yee. Apparently, they shop will pull off all the bits of the car that are adjacent to the panel, because they're going to repaint the entire panel and don't want any paint lines to show. It would have been higher if I let them pull the back window glass off, but I'm stingy and didn't want to risk the glass breaking in the process (which isn't guaranteed).

The dent isn't that big, and the paint scrapes aren't that significant. Ugh. I was hoping for something about a quarter or a fifth of this cost. 8(
