Carfax for diminished value

Anyone have an extra or unlimited Carfax report to give? I'd like to check if my $4400 door ding that was repaired at a Tesla authorized body shop is listed on Carfax. If so, I'm going to make a diminished value claim.

You'll be surprised at how much value your car has lost. A small scrape and broken tail lamp, less than $2500 to repair, St Lucie Appraisal came up with a diminished value of $8,500. Tesla buyers are picky and a bad Carfax could impact the car down the road, for example, if it gets hit again their insurer will balk at paying any diminished value because the car had a prior loss.

Wow! If I can get that, I'm glad I got my little door ding then!
