    @OP
    No one can give you the cost idea without seeing the extent of damage.
    Show the pictures.

    well same thing happened to my friend last month. and he was very worried as it seems quite difficult to get rid of dent from side skirt.

    But it was damn easy, it took denter only 15-20 mins to remove that dent, but skirt has to be re-painted.

    No Need for skirt to be cut, they will drill small holes in that area, and pull that metal sheet outward.

    Cost was Rs.2000 , including paint. It was done through Suzuki Franchise Workshop.

    Honda would be expensive, but its not a big job, so you can get it done from some normal workshop.

    Best Regards.

    Ive got a similar dent on my 2004 City. Took it to Honda a few years back, they said the skirt would be cut and repaired and handed me a HUGE bill for doing it. I lol'd on their faces and left.

    I'll post a pic tomorrow.

    Sorry for being off topic but its a +1 that Toyota is offering plastic side skirts which can be replaced.
    Honda should also think of offering the same in later models.
    I was in a similar kind of situation 4~5 months ago and the skirt had to be changed as it got broken.
    It was relatively easier.

    Anyways its nice to hear that you got it done.

    All these 3S dealers will find one way or another to charge you.
    I lost a clip (makhi) of the air filter box,
    Went to Toyota Islamadad and inquired about it.
    Their advisor said that you will have to replace the complete air filter assembly.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.
