Quarter panel damage

Hi all ,

I accidentally scratched my left quarter panel yesterday. Pictures attached. Trying to understand if this can be repaired even if the repair is not factory perfect its fine. i dont want it cut and replaced guess that could lead to strucural instability if not done correctly.

If any body has been in to similar situation , your advise will be much appreciated.
Any ideas how much this should cost to get repaired in US.
Also please recommend a good body shop in atlanta area.

Thanks to all the visitors.

$1,500 or so. Might need a little Bondo. Nothing to worry about.

a good body shop has tools that they can pull the dents out to near perfect and skim coat with filler and paint it,

but you better inquire how they will do the repair, once its painted you will never know if they just put 2 pounds of filler on it, you could also tell them you want to inspect the repair before its painted

I had someone back into my 330ci, and Nalley BMW had their bodyshop make it look better then it previously was.
