Damn, put my first dent in my new car

Well, it is official, my car is not even 6 months old yet, and I put a dent in it

I was moving some stuff around in my garage and forgot I had moved it, and opened my door into my miter saw It dented and scratched the black pillar cover on the drivers door. Here is a pic:



That pic doesn't show the dent well, but it is in the circled area. It appears like the black pillar cover is replaceable. Anyone confirm that I can just replace that cover and it is back to new? Also any idea of cost, and how hard it is to replace?

atleast you did it yourself and it is relatively easy to fix. Since i bought my car 10 months ago ive had 4 dents which I can only attribute to people getting in/out of their cars next to mine and deciding that its a good idea to use my body panels as a door stopper.

Thanks guys, I still feel like an idiot, but at least it was probably the best place to hit. I may spring for the carbon fiber ones, if they are too much green.

When I got my car, one of the pillars was cracked and I had it replaced by the dealer. If I remember correctly, it was like $65 or so.
