Someone drove into my car earlier this week. They want to go down the route of paying for it themselves rather than insurance.
This is the damage-
I've been to a couple of garages- one says repairing it is better because it's cheaper and will retain all the factory quality sealing on the door trim and window. The other says replacing it is best because the whole door now has a ripple to it that a dent repair will not fix.
I don't want to shaft the guy- the bill (including other damage) for a repair will be £1200, for a replacement £1700. Which will give me the best repair?
