    It was just a matter of time, but I finally did it - I turned too closely into a parking space and whacked the curb with the front drivers' side lower bumper.

    After I kicked my own ass, I took it to the closest dent shop near me, AZ Dent Shop on Raintree in Scottsdale. I was quoted $746.86. I pretty much thought I could get away with just having the dent pulled out and worry about the paint later but the service writer seemed to think that wouldn't work. I'm not sure why as I felt the other side of the dent and there's nothing there.

    I definitely don't want to go through insurance so I would like to at least get the dent out as inexpensively as possible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    just get a bumper off of eBay...plenty of used ones there
    there's also plenty of how-tos on the bumper removal/replacement

    If you want to try to pop it out yourself, apply heat (nothing too crazy) and then press out from the inside. It doesn't look like you could make it any worse.

    Boil water and put it on the bumper and then push it out from the inside
