    Good god don't claim for that, your excess will be higher than the repair costs!! I've got a similar mark on my S3 bumper and wing, I'm having it repaired by my local lookers branch for £210 inc VAT on thursday. Its a smart type of repair but he's not mobile. Matching paint? C'mon anyone can match up paint if they have the paint code!

    Don't worry about it, go to a few places and get a range of quotes and decide whats best for you! As a general rule to paint one panel most body shops charge between £120-£160 per panel inc VAT.. unless you go to audi and its going to be a lot, lot more!

    They won't take the job on if they can't match it, if your going to go for a smart repair, go to one that works for a big company like I'm doing, the works much better, plus don't be put off by them, the laquers they use now aren't what they used to be, they use the same 2 pack that a body shop does! It won't be £300 to spray the bumper, even a body shop will blow in the affected area!

    Honestly mate, a smart repair from a reputable company. It will be fine, they do the job day in day out, i was sceptical but the cost outweighs it for me!

    Have you had it done yet? I have heard good things as well to be fair.

    image.jpgThe pics come out upside down but you see the damage, the lookers fella quoted £210 to do the bumper and the chip on the wing, the wing he's blowing in all the way across and not around it (because that will look s**t) The set price for the bumper was £80 + VAT and 95 + VAT for the wing Its going in on thursday so ill report back.

    As a guide the audi approved body shop quoted £445 with a smart repair on the bumper £600 ish without a smart repair and a even more with the courtesy car etc!!

    Indy bodyshop was £300 to blow the bumper in and repaint the wing..
