Either leave them or take the car to a body repair specialists, you could make them worse.

do you know if the body shop is expensive?
I had a dent in my door where some nice person had kicked my car on the way past, and one of those things pulled it out perfectly.

just ordered one on ebay will see if it work,
Body shop isnt that expensive if you get a good one. Pay cash no VAT etc. unless youve majorly ruined the car itll be sub 500
chloe dents that are just pushed in can be pushed out by a company like dentbuster or dent devil....they can get to nearly all the bodywork from the inside and use special rods to push the dent out.

great thanks for the advice will look into it.
Problem with pulling dents is it fks up the paint most of the time and ends up needing taking off and respraying anyway - which is mostly what the bodyshop cost is.

The paint only tends to fck up if there is a crack in the dent, would always go to a dentbasher though. Choe081 where are you located ?

hi i live in hampshire
Ahh i see, try a local dent basher, good prices and will accept cash if you were a wee bit over in my neck of the woods ive got a great guy who does them
depends where the dents is, if its accessible like the door, rip the inside and grab a hammer, presto, but imo i would never do it as i have never done it before and usually you make it worse if its your first attempt

someone hit into the side of out car and this is how it was repaired, came back like new. (unsure of the cost, their insurance paid) but it was an amazing job!

Unfortunately once we got the car back someone opened their door on it and scratched and dinted it, we might take it back there.
