    Some A**^£%$ scratched my car

    Yes mad Someones gone and put 2 nice fat scratches down the side of my passenger door.



    Whats the best way round this, can I just get a touch up pen from Halfords or am I looking at a respray If so, how much is this going to set me back.

    I seriously am on the verge of tears, Ive had this car not even 2 months and this shit happens.

    Anyways yeah just wanted to /rant.

    i think you are looking at a respray and possibly a blend, otherwise the colours will look slightly off.

    Any idea how much this would set me back? A rough estimate would be great.

    Look at the likes of Chips-Away as an option... they can sometimes repair stuff like that without nessecarily spraying the whole door

    That looks quite bad there mate. Don't ever buy paint from halfords as the colour match can be off.

    Best bet would a respray on the lower half of the panel, probably cost abot £50 from a decent bodyshop. Go round getting quotes.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
