Randy, did you happen to be watching the guy who did the work on your car? I'm wondering how easy the access to the back of the ding was. Did he have to drill any holes?

If you think that is too long, change the oil before...

Not sure about the specific brand, but I am pretty sure that they use a water based paint that takes longer to dry.

I was just curious on which dealer would most likely quote me a higher value for my trade-in.

Are you saying that I can't get a 100,000 mile warranty from say, a Mercedes or Lexus dealer?

Did you not buy your car as a certified pre-owned, which would have extended your warranty to 100k? If the car runs great with the light on, you should just see if it goes away after awhile. Could've...
