Rear quarter panel + bumper repainting and slight dent


i backed up and scraped my 2018 red tesla against a pillar recently :( I was told by several body shops the rear quarter panel and bumper would need to be repainted. There’s also a slight dent which would need to be fixed. Estimates from tesla approved shops were 4k-6k (!!). A non certified Tesla shop which does other luxury cars offered to do it for 2.9k.
Is it really that expensive to get a repaint?! Does anyone the cost if the Tesla service center does this?
