I have had both of my cars in for repairs twice. This most recent trip was to remove a stain on the hood of my beloved 04 Cooper. Estimate-$50. Later in the day I stopped to pick up the car. The stain was still there but barely visible. Went inside to pay, but told "No charge-it's not perfect." The car was also washed and dried. Even the tires were blacked. I was given a new estimate (a higher one) to repaint the hood, but I doubt I'll repaint as the repair is so good. I love this shop, and the people who work here.

Excellent work. Fast estimate. Got my car in quickly. Dealt directly with the insurance company on everything which made things easier for me. My car was even cleaned spotless when I picked it up! Highly recommend.
Tips & Advices
Paintless dent repair (PDR) can result in complete removal of dents, but generally only in minor/shallow dents. Larger dents may not be removed completely through PDR, which has limited capabilities. These dents might require a more traditional and labor intensive (costly) repair to full remove it. Every dent must be addressed individually to know if PDR is the best option for complete removal.
The primary drawback of paintless dent repair is small, yet detectable imperfections in the panel and the paint may still be present after the repair. The only way to return the panel to original factory condition may be through more intensive processes that include sanding, body filling, and paint. Some damages may prevent the panel from returning to the integrity of the original condition.
Hail damage is the ideal situation to use paintless dent removal. In fact, it is one of the most common uses for the technique.  Be aware that every situation is unique and certain processes may not always work, particularly in cases of severe or unusual damage.
Old dents can absolutely be repaired with PDR or other standard methods. This is dependent, of course, on the severity of the damage. Time can also be a factor. If rust and/or oxidation have caused additional damage, they can compromise the integrity of the dent, and the entire panel, which may need to be replaced to be cost-effective.
The types of dents that can be repaired without using paint are generally smaller, straight-impact dents that leave a clean dent with no surface damage. Hail is a perfect example of a dent that can be repaired without using PDR as it generally leaves a small dent, or dents, that can be pushed out from the backside of the surface with ease.
