My car has lots of minor dents caused by those who open their door and then
bang into mine. I have a question as does respraying the whole car can make
my car look brand new or even after respraying, the dents still look

What is the cost of respraying the whole car? Thank you for the advise.

I have the same problem with my 3 month old car. Dents caused by damned
fools opening their doors into mine. Err, respraying will of course make
your car look brand new but there's no way your dents are going to
magically disappear. Usually work is done on the body to cure these dents
or rust spots before respraying is done. Not too knowledgeable about the
cost but I think it depends on many factors such as the amount of body
work that needs to be done, if its only an external or a full respray,
the quality of the primer, paint and clearcoat used, the methods (i.e.
2K/oven bake), the quality of the work or if the owner of the paint shop
just wants to plain slaughter you.
