Accidentally bumped someone's parked car... it's a few years old... put a light scratch or two on the back of it. I'd rather not go through insurance and just pay myself and I'm going to be getting the estimation soon. How much is a normal price to fix something like that? I want to know so the car owner doesn't try to screw me over with a crazy price.

Depends a lot on the location of the scratch and the type of paint on the car. I have this tri-colour paint on my car, with little specks of different colours to give it a bit of a metallic sheen, and it cost me $900 to get a scratch repainted because they had to do two full panels. Such a pain in the ass. Someone door dinged me a few months after getting it repainted and the scratch from that is still there because I'm not paying to repaint it again and it'll screw up my insurance premiums if I make a claim.
So yeah, it can get pricey. It will depend more on the paint than the model of car.0
