    Default Honda City Dent (Suggest what to do)

    Hey guys last-night some uncle effed up my city's back gate, i need some suggestions should i leave it as it is or should i get it repaired and if i get it repaired is there any chances of getting low resale value etc.

    P.s one of my friend told me about the Paint Less Dent Repair is it true? Or he just made that thing up.

    if you are not a "wehmi" type person then I will suggest you to sort it with dry-denting ! But if you want perfection, then go for repaint ! And keep in mind that the repaint job includes the whole panel to be repainted ! So choice is yours !

    some dents can be easily dry dented. From your pic, doesnt look like, may not be 'perfect' as you want. The whole door will be resprayed.

    If going for proper repair with repaint, make sure you get it from some place that does so with bake paint. Honda Gateway (lahore) for eg, does a pretty good job at repairs and paint.

    I would prefer a properly done job than leaving it in a dented state (because potential future buyers prefer it that way, untouched).

    I have been to Honda Pitshop (JoharTown) yesterday and uh he told me to repair would cost 7 Thousand rupees, with little bitnof touching of bumper and the main dent. Is it reasonable? Or should i go to Honda Gateway. Thanks

    Last i went, they dont have bake paint there. Last repair on family car (door panel) was around 5000rs I believe, at honda gateway (all cars are insured so dont bother about the cost). Paint damage though extends a bit beyond the door so to match they do more.

    Problem with honda gateway is that they are really busy. So may take a while. No harm in getting a quote.

    your statement contradicts itself

    you say to correct it, but also say future buyers want "untouched" - which is it?

    Don't see the contradiction here. I stated 'my preference' is getting it properly corrected despite what future buyers prefer. i would get a proper repair job to my satisfaction, not worrying too much about future resale value (because i got it repaired/painted).
