That sucks dude, why do people do these things?!
yeh me tooI got to my car last night which is parked in our office car park and found someone has keyed the rear panel ! The dirty ****ing ****ards have pressed pretty dam hard and left a two foot key mark in my pristine white paint... I am totaly gutted...
If some of the damage can be polished out can you get any type of infill that could help??
Sorry to hear about that, I would be devastated if someone did that to my car. £800 sounds a lot though, have you tried getting quotes direct from paint shops? My housemate had her astra keyed, all the way across both doors - she got it repainted and some stone chips and a bumper graze covered for £300 and it was a top job. I managed to scrape the wheel arch of my old car (mondeo) on the gatepost into my boyfriend's and got it repainted for £130, you wouldn't have known it had happened at all. both cars had metallic paint. I think £800 sounds far too high.£8 0 0 . . . . . . . . .
That is what my friendly dealer has quoted me to repair the panel !
