Any ideas how to fix a small dent?

Hey guys, so I noticed today that my RX8 has a small dent in the passenger side door. Which gets me very very angry. Not sure how it happened (looks like maybe a shopping cart hit it or something?) but I for sure want to get it out. I will take a picture of it and show it when I get the chance. But what I want to know is how is a good way to get it out? I heard a few ways such as with a plunger, hot water, etc.

Any ideas how to get this dent out? Thanks in advance.

If the dent did not crease or scratched the paint, you could get a shop to do a paint-less dent repair, usually cost about $50 US, but worth it. There are tutorials out there in the net where you could learn to do it, but for $50, I'll let some else do it before I screw anything up.

Your best bet is to look for a reputable PDR guy in your area.

Absolutely! Paintless Dent Repair is your friend. Takes less than hour while you wait, no painting involved, and looks perfect when completed. Like magic!
