Any recommendation for scratch repair?

Accidentally buah my car against the Carpark wall when going down the spiral slope



Any recommendation for workshop that specialise in this kind of repair work?

And what are the rough estimates for this kind of repair?

I used steer to ask for quotation, three different workshop quoted me $258, $300 and $380 (before gst)

Quite a difference for the same dmg

some workshops omit GST in the final billing & this could be an estimated cost (until the car is been reviewed @workshop)

did they mention what is the downtime?

Go for the 380$ 2days job. Dmg like this at least 450$ 1day job for reputable workshop. Price so low sure give lousy workmanship

Can try Autoglym Paint Renovator on the fender area. It worked last time for me, similar case - no dents or deep scratches. The door side looks more damaged.

Otherwise a reasonable price charged by spray paint shops should be around $300, I guess.
