Everyone has different style, therefore everyone has different taste, don't like my car, don't look simple as that

A good paintless dent guy should be able to fix that. I paid about $200 for something similar.

it happens to all of us, only human, be glad u weren't at highway speeds and that happened! but yes around 200 dollars to do at a body shop unless you look at a junkyard and try to find a cobalt thats the same colour cobalt thats been rear ended and has a good hood, and just replace it cheaper then getting the one fixed u have possibly

I would just get it repaired and repainted, as long as your car has not sit in the sun all day for several years, you should get a color match pretty easily, any body shop can make that look new again, plus, any other scratches on there will be wiped out also.

Costly brain fart. Anyway a good shop will pull that out like new for sure don't know if 200$ will cover it though.
