    body shop quoted me 150 euros without parts... seems fair right?

    Have you guys experienced something similar with your cars?

    Did you manage to sort this, guessing it’s new sills with the amount of rot.

    Yes i had to order a new sill made by a polish company (about 25 euros with delivery) and labor was 150 euros, they did a pretty good job, and filled the inside of the the sill with some anti rust protection + painted it

    looks like that now:
