Thinking about having my dealership remove some interior bits..

My 11' 128i vert got a ding from a rock or something that kicked up on the common rear wheel lower area of the quarter anel.
The ding is on the lowest area of the beltline just above the rocker panels on the pass-side rear quarter panel.
It's actual size : () <-It's as big is that. Very small and Very annoying.

My PDR guy said it cant be done due the ding being low and the rear QP is double walled.

I'm thinking that if I could remove the rear seat interior panels...then I can get the ding out with PDR.

I don't want to damage the interior panels...So my question is: How much would my local dealership charge for inteior trim panels to be removed and re-installed on a convertible??
Just looking for estimates and your guess to how much this would cost before I go over there to get laughed at. I'd like to have a estimate / understanding to what I'd be looking at in terms of cost.

Any insight and adivce is greatly appreciated.

Might want to check that it can be reached first and if you will be able to PDR it in such a tight area.

Dealer would charge hourly rate... Different dealer to dealer but you could probably work with them on a reasonable price...
