How the damage happened (if you care):
Pulled out of a parking spot partially, when I noticed some bags of stuff I had on the passenger seat floor fell over. I stopped to fix it up while I was still seated. Not thinking, while I was doing this, I lifted my foot off the brake, the car started rolling backwards into the parking spot (I didn't feel the rolling), and BAM!!! hit a concrete light post!
STUPID STUPID STUPID!! uuggghhhh...
Anyway, below is the damage. I went to a few body shops for quotes. One guy said $950 (To which I said, hell no), another guy said $750 (I was still shocked), a third guy said $550 (I think I can swallow this). I honestly thought the repair job would have been more like $350-$450 before I ever got any quotes.
Anyway, what do you guys think? $550 sound about right? I was also toying with the idea of repairing it myself with a touchup kit, either brush or spray, but dunno.....
A little hard to see, but should give an idea:
