    Had my cactus green s3 got keyed, my brother went to halfords and they mixed up a paint pen for him and he managed to touch up the scratch. its still shows up in some light but overall it was good fix. The halfords pens have a really fine tip and the colour match was very good, with a machine polish you'd probably be able to get it back to perfect and not have to spend 500

    About 5 years ago, my wifes Astra mk3 was parked in a lock-up garage, garage broken into, car door jemmied open, righthand side dashboard damaged along with steering wheel shrouding, this was actually smashed away. Steering wheel was actually hanging down only held by wireing. Police thought that people who did it where after the wheel and its airbag. The car was written off.

    Not even a lock up garage is safe these days, these guys must have been pretty desperate!

    A little update - phoned the insurance up and they told me it will be 400 excess charge and it won't affect my no claims discount as its an act of vandalism. Iv got a crime number etc so at least I can save a bit of money. I have to consider their choice of repair specialist first, though I am told I can use my own choice after an "engineer" has been to see the scratch.

    Whats worse is when acts like this happen and people stand by and do nothing.

    as much as this would piss me off - i would absolutely no way in hell go through my insurance for something like this.

    affecting no claims or not, they still count it as a claim. i found this out the hard way this year after my mrs had 2 people crash into her (not her fault) and then she crashed into someone which was her fault. insurance companies count this as 3 claims no matter whether she was at fault or not and the insurance price increased, albeit only slightly

    Yup, I agree, it counts as a claim on your insurance premium for the next 3-5 years depending on insurance company, so thats +30% on your premium.
