Default Paintless Dent Repair?

Had some hail damage on a 2002 C240. Picked it up, looked good from what I could tell
Today I buffed it out, and under the lights, I could see dimples where there were repairs, including a couple that actually chipped the paint. They just dabbed a little touch up paint in them, which looks like crap
Do I return it, or am I being too picky. At a glance you don't see them (except the paint touch up) but in certain light they stand out?

I also have some fob problems, which I dismissed, but one is now dead and the other back-up isn't working right. I found out the Infra-Red signal is part of the rear glass antenae, (which was broke and replaced and tinted) which ties them together...could be the problem? What's the chance of both fob's going bad

Take it back. We had hail damage repaired using paint-less method, look great when done. Didn't need any touch up paint. Why would they touch up with paint? Whole point of paint-less is no paint. If paint work needed to be done, they should have sent you to a repair shop.

This was a body shop. Most of the dents were repaired by paintless method, two or so had actually chipped the paint. I figured those areas would of gotten painted ot touched up properly/ professionally.

I had it done on my wifes Grand Prix GXP. They did every dent perfectly. Can't even see where any dents were. The hail did bend an edge and crack the paint on the hood. They sent it to a body shop to have the hood replaced because they would not repair any dent with cracked paint because it may rust down the road.
