Unhappy Someone hit my car while it was parked, HIT&RUN

How much do you guys think its going to cost me to get it fixed? & Does Lexus sell parts that are already painted?

Holy crap sorry to hear about that bro. it looks like it came from a hitch from a truck. I had a similar situation about a year ago. People in Texas have no driving skills at all.

If you take it to a dent removing shop it will probably run you around $150-$200. They usually charge you according to how big the dent is and in your case it's pretty big. You seem like one of those people who love their car a lot so I would check with your insurance. Check how much your deductible is. If they messed up the paint on your fender it would probably be better just to go through your insurance and take it to a collision body shop. At least you know when you come out of that place your car would look as good as it did before.

Definitely get PDR if you can.

Lexus does not sell fenders pre-painted, so having yours repaired is the only way to keep the factory finish (aside from buying a fender off of another car).

PDR here in California costs about $100 for 2 small 1.5" dents. If we use that as an estimator, it'll run you about $400-$500 for PDR, and keep in mind every PDR guy varies, and I guarantee you not one of those PDR guys can repair that type of dent to 100%, probably 96-97%.

PDR guys do some great work but I think this is way beyond what they can do for you. I think you are looking at a new fender for your car. Good luck.

Looks like you need a fender to me. That dent removal service will have to warp it back into shape. They could probably do it but it may still be wavy. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Sorry to see this. I just had this happen to me, though yours is drivable. Mine had the fender pushed into the wheel

Me too, everyday after work or school, I check everywhere to look for scratches

Thanks for the advice guys, I guess I got some calling around to do tomorrow.

Sucks Lexus isnt like Honda when it comes to pre-painted replacement parts.
