Hail Damage on new truck? Discount?

I made a deal on an 11' F250 over the phone. I was told they had two of teh same trucks, one had a dent from hail and one didn't. When I showed up there was one dent on the hood and three on the roof. They said they would fix it. After I signed the paperwork a friend at the dealership looked at the truck and noticed the front light and bumper had a very small impact from another vehicle. The dealer said no problem, they would prep the other truck and have it ready in the morning. I drove off in the first truck. The next day I noticed the other truck has two large hail dents on the hood and one large one and one small one on the roof. They're willing to fix those as well but my friend is telling me that truck is not new and even fixed, it should be discounted more. The dealer has offered to make it right and mentioned a spray in bedliner. Does the hail damage go on a carfax or diminish the value? Should I be getting a bigger discount? Opinions?

Well what is the current discount for it. Don't really know if you should get a bigger one without knowing the one they are giving you.

Truck was 60,825. discount 9,300. That's what we agreed to on the phone with the no dent truck. Now we're dealing on a truck with dents that they have agreed to fix but it's not the same as a new truck, no dents.

ya get atleast a line-x bed for the damage. Or just tell them to fix it. Not sure what the going rate is, but our dent guy at the BMW dealership I work at, charges $100 a dent. Sometimes less if he likes you haha. Its not cheap, soo maybe a line-x and they fix the dents? That would be a nice gesture since youve gone through some crap even after writing a 60k check.
