You have paint damage which means paint will have to be involved.

Just had the drivers side fender fixed on mine. Went to an independent body shop. My wife has used this shop several times in the past for touch-ups and minor dings. Did an excellent job, and amazingly the total cost just happened to match the insurance check.

Hey, D.

Dentwizard can't do anything for that, it looks like a chip which means sanding and painting, perhaps layering/texturing. Dentwizard is great for popping out small dents that don't involve paint.

Did you buy your Benz new? From one angle that almost looks like body putty in there.

At any rate, take it in and get an estimate or two, particularly, ask folks you know in your area for personal recommendations.

Good luck and enjoy the ride,
Greg

Where are you basically? I know some pretty good places and the guy who does mine works for a fancy, schmantzy import body shop but does piece work out of his garage very reasonably.
