We will need a picture to advise you on the atual dent, it fact we my even need to try doing the dent.

It sounds like maybe their dent man has tried and can't do it. So the cost of putting it right has gone up. Meaning it will need to be resprayed.

There is a possibility it could be done by a more skillful man, but I wouldn't take the chance.

Cars are going down in value year by year. Very few months they actually go up and if this happens theres usually a quirk like the price of fuel coming down significantly. So I would insist it is done as agreed and then look out for another one and yes just when you thought that was the only one, another one will turn up. Its a buyer market so don't by a car with a dent in it, remember you will pay when you sell it.
