body ???

I was hit in the right rear @15-20 mph dealership said the whole side panel needed replaced but the "outher guys" insurance company says that it can be straitened I know the insurance company is trying to be cheep but i also know dealerships can be excessive what do you guys think iI would add pics but it says they r to big. The side panel has a wave in it but the corner panel will be replaced

Can't you pick the repair shop of your choice, regardless of who's fault it was? That's what I always understood.

true that. you pick the higest price place that will do the work, and usually the Insurace co will try to split the difference with you. I would remind the Insurance company that their client hit you and you brought it to a qualified repair shop, if their adjuster was a repair person chances are he wouldn't be an adjuster. Just say if they want another opinion you'll be more than happy to take it to one more place for an estimate.

oh and make sure its DC parts

the body shop does what the insurance company tells them to fix.or what they will pay for.
but you dont need to take it to the dealership go to a normal body shop the work it normaly the same as a dealership if not better.
if its the type of wrinkle I think it is its very fixable its a comon
wrinkle that jeeps get when they get hit like that.

but then again I havent seen it.
