    Hi,

    Got a dent on the e36 a while ago, its not too bad (on the wing) but its annoying me. I was wondering if it could be repaired without repainting and filling? If so, does anyone know any independents within London? thanks for the help!

    yes this can be fixed without painting etc. There are loads of ppl down by me who do it and would cost about £30-£40 for it. But dent removal is one of those things lower skilled ppl would say no it needs paint and good ones who say yeah easy peasy after all it is an art and ppl's ability's differ.

    You can do wonders by polishing out the surface. From the angle of the pictures it looks like it might need a spray.

    I'd imagine it could pulled/pushed but may need spraying afterwards. I would take it to Dips at Custom Cars. He's based near Heathrow.
