Fixable or new panel?

Came out this morning and found out that some fvcker hit my car and didn't leave a note or anything.. So do you think this is something that can be fixed or would I need a whole new quarter panel?

Planning to take it somewhere next week when I have time so as of now just looking for some insight on it.

that's a fender, not a 1/4 panel.

And it's easily fixable.

bad luck, this fix could be more then a fender from a donor. Look into one with same colour, might be cheaper then fixing and painting.

just speaking from experience. Its an easy fix if you want to get it fixed, but will require paint. paint is expensive. $100+ for labour and paint on that.
A fender might cost $50-70 and if original paint on the fender, it should be a perfect match.

you might be able to get away with dent removal by a pro.

If you choose to get it repaired, the damage is very minor and should not cost an awful lot. Chances of you finding a second hand fender the exact shade as your door and bonnet is slim to none.

I was hoping someone could just pop it out somehow, if not i'm kind of assuming it's going to require new paint
