My oldest son did the same against the gate, but I gave him $2000 El Camino as first car.
Bless you father for letting you drive Mercedes and let him take care about the repairs. Don't think he would appreciate shoddy body work on 1 year old car.
We know cheaper OEM part sources, but not knowing your location, all I can tell you - google part number.
