    My crap luck too !!!!!

    Well, went into work almost an hour early today to get a decent parking spot and was just getting to grips with my MMI when a colleague pulled in next to me, opened his car door and whacked the passenger side door of my car.

    Golf ball size ding, small crease and 2 small dings.

    Damage has been assessed by Audi and it needs to go in the bodyshop. The damage is in an awkward spot - can't get behind it. Not best chuffed and paranoid about letting anyone lose on my pride and joy.

    Anyone had experience of Audi repairs. The vehicle was bought at Teeside Audi and will be going to their bodyshop in Newcastle for repair.

    Is there a "13" jinx after all ?.

    All these stories of damaged A3's - it's making me nervous! Hope you get it sorted to a good standard without costing you a fortune.

    Yep, he's paying for the damage. Not the point though.

    A friend of mine owns a smart repair company and he had a go with a glue plug. Got quite a bit of it out but it still stands out a mile when you look down the flank. I'm a bit nervous of the bodyshop going at it but I have no choice really.
