    on you tube. a guy heats the dent up for about 5 mins with a hair dryer then uses arctic
    spray(the sort which plumbers use to frezze pipes) wen the cold spray hits the warm metal ping.... the dent pops back out. may be worth a try.

      Dent removal can vary area to area, but I paid £45inc VAT for that last one I had done.

            It's annoying but thankfully generally easy and cheap to get sorted. I had one in the rear panel and got it removed for £80. Expect to pay under £100 anyway. Some one like Dent Devils or Dent O Magic would be best.

                Yeah...a protective layer of bubble wrap would be nice but it would spoil the looks of the VXR!

                          I had a bad 'supermarket' dent removed last week in the door of my RX8. I telephoned the local Dent Devil man. He came round to my house the next morning and used the hairdyer and freezing spray method. The repair was perfect and I was charged £60

                          (Mazda's quote was £460 +vat )
