    Saw this ages back. Can't help but think it's a little opstimistic that a change in heat like that will have the force to pop a dent. added to that the fact the metal actually stretches when it gets a dent in it (which is why you'll never get a fairly serious dent completely flat again)...

    Fill the car with it and put the heaters on until the dent pops put from the pressure on the inside?

    Something like that, this guy literally threw it into the wing through holes where the door hinges are and turned the engine on. Not sure if its a joke or not lol.

    O the joy of the forum :)

    Guys the heat up, cool down rapidly DOES NOT WORK. Tried it, it failed, cursed the £5 I spent on CO2.

    It does work but just depends on what kind of dent it is.

    Tried it on my Clio, father's S4 and RS4, mums cars, few colleague and friends cars and no luck. Really did try it to death!

    Personally I would use your services or similar in the area. Doing something like this without prior experience or knowledge would be too risky for me.
    pro type service (like yours) without question
    Nice pictures and work on the repairs by the way
