Dent and backlight leak bottom left corner of screen

I accidentally dropped my new mac a few days ago and it created a small dent that soon left to a back light leak on the bottom left corner of the screen. I brought it to apple to ask how much repairs would cost and it was half the price of the laptop. How much would buying new display cost? Any recommendations for repair shops?

At the moment, you can only get the LCD panels, not the whole lid (and the panel alone costs 300$!)

Lids are usually available at a decent price a couple of months after the LCDs have dropped in price, so you are looking at May/June earliest when 3rd party companies are offering this repair.
