Decent Door Dent - What Am I Looking At $$?

I had a very similar dent in my 3 fixed by a Tesla certified shop. Used PDR and it came out remarkably well. I was very impressed. Cost was ~1600, mostly all labor.

Same here - had very similar dent right on the crease from what I believe was a shopping cart hitting the door. Took it to a Tesla certified body shop and since I had a low deductible of only $100 I ran it through Geico - they billed Geico $1600 for the repair. No increase from Geico on subsequent renewals either.

UPDATE: Was able to stake out and get her license plate the next day... BUT, insurance ran her plates and no coverage SURPRISE! No worries, I have uninsured coverage with a low deductible. Fun part begins, PDP or real body repair? Those of you who did a certified shop, any suggestions on making the process smooth with insurance?
