From the looks of it, the damage is only on the rear fender. If nothing else is damaged under it (there shouldn't be because it looks like a small dent), I would say about $300-400 for a good repair. Body shops could probably just repair and paint that area for less, but after a few years, the paint in that area might not match the paint in the surrounding areas.

Source: I recently got hit and run and the damage was to my fender and rear bumper. The dents were deeper and the paint was cracked and the total was almost $2k for a good paint job.

Yikes for a good shop to do it right it will probably cost you more than your deductible. I had something similar happen to my VW, some guy just backed right into me in a parking lot while I was in the car me blaring on the horn and all. It was on the door and fender though and it was like $1100. I would have a shop quote you first...

If they can save the panel it might not be too bad (could still be over a grand), but if you need a new panel you can probably double that.

I'm pretty sure they can save that panel though. My panel was worse off, but they were able to repair just fine
