What are you people doing to your cars?
Repair work looks good though.....can't tell......just hope that the dealer can't tell when you trade in your car in the future...they tend to deduct value from a car if it's been in an accident

So what did they do? Did they replaced the fender or patched (filled up etc)? If is a leased car patching is fine - but if is your car replacing the fender is the right path. No matter how good it was patched, that fender area is subject to frequent water contact and will corrode from the inside out. My 2 cents.
