So my car got hit with a dang frisbee. Haven't even made my first payment yet Don't laugh at the pic b/c you can barely notice it, but hey, it's my baby and I know that dent is there. What would y'all do?

Take it back to the dealer, and raise hell because you've just noticed a dent that was CLEARLY there when you bought the car.

Maybe they'll fix it for free.

id try to buff it out.. Me personally wouldn't take it into the body shop cause is the dont mach up your color really good then you're gonna have a whole panel that bugging you instead of a lil chip but that's just IMO
Good luck!

Let it sit in the sun for a few hours, the heat will occasionally cause little dents to pop back out.

You can try Batman's solution, if you don't get caught for fraud, if so, they will let you keep a picture of your car in your jail cell.

Or park it out in the son and try putting a large ice cube on it. If not, can you live with the dent? Or put on your tiniest shorts and go to the body shop. Some employee might help you out.

GOOD LUCK!

Take it when you get your next dent. They are inevitable.

Lol honestly, the thought did cross my mind!

Yeah, I can't expect the car to be flawless if its my everyday driver.

First dent? Check.

If you decide to wait, you can always post your picture in your shorts anytime, sooner the better!

Since the ding is so small, you could try the compressed air/hair dryer trick.

VIDEO: Car dent removal with hair dryer and compressed air - Autoblog

I tried this on a more substantial door ding and it did absolutely nothing but you may have better luck since yours is smaller.

Id say just let it be. If it's your daily driver, sadly, it was going to come soon or a later. My brother came over to my house, a week after i got mine and dinged my door handle right infront of me lol. Pissed me off so much.
Like others have said though, for something so small i would not want to have brand new factory paint repainted and risk them screwing it up.

I feel your pain.....and sorry. My opinion is..... Either live with it (I couldn't) or bring it to a paintless dent repair shop. They have the tools and experience to correct issues like this properly. I actually had a golf ball size ding on my hood and my local guys fixed it flawlessly in ten minutes....cost was 65.00. Good luck and sorry.

Yeah, now that a few days have gone by, I figure I'll just get over it. Its going to happen again sooner or later : ( at least that one you can't find if you're not looking for it.
