    Angry Had my car scratched to buggery, GRRR!!

    Right, so you guys know, I'm not going to go on with a rant about how some git scratched the hell out of my car. I just need advice on how to restore my paint.

    Basically, someone has scratched my car...severely...and I'm not happy. It's deeper than what a polish can get out seeing as I can feel how deep it goes, grrr!! I just want to know if there are any companys or individuals that anyone knows around my area (Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire) that could see what they could do about fixing up my scratches. They are on BOTH sides of my car and there are 2 scratches down each side going from all the way from front to back.

    If anyone can help that would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    I think youll need both sides respraying mate to get it back to like new.

    There may be some companies that can just take the scratch out but im sure itll still be slightly visible.

    Bugger...that could be expensive...I really don't want to spend too much on respraying it seeing as sometime soon I'll be getting a GSi.

    I'll have to see...I'm not sure how much I would get for my car anyway, not much I wouldn't have thought.

    If anyone else knows any actual people that could do it cheap then I'm all ears!!

    have a look for a Chips Away franchisee - they will be able to get the scratch out easy.

    They usually charge per panel, but for a long scratch covering several panels is often cheaper than paying for all the panels.
