    Yes I have used them and no they were rubbish,they are franchises so it depends on how good the people running them are.
    I had a brush mark on my bumper and they sorted it but it was overspray all over the passenger door,I am the only occupant so never noticed until 6 months later

    If you plan to sell the car, then they are ok, but for a longer term solution, I'd pay a bit extra and go with a spray booth, especially if you value the car!

    It's much easier for them to repair a solid colour than a 2/3 coat metallic/pearl finish.

    I used the Cardiff branch a few years ago on my last S3 and they did a good job!

    They repaired a bumper scuff and I'm fussy, you couldn't tell where it was repaired!

    But as others have said, it all depends on the guy doing it!

    My car got key'd along the passenger door and quite deep earlier this year. Used chips away in Preston, it looks good as knew. Washed and polished numerous times since then and no problems at all
    Would recommend them but definitely depends on the guy doing it.
