    No idea, probably depends on colour and wether metalic or pearl effect too.

    No harm shopping around getting quotes.

    I managed to get a split in front bumper, too busy trying not to get cut up to notice car in front had stopped :(

    5 inch split over nearside close to washers.

    £140 for repair and respray.

    can't tell its been done. :)

    will let the miserable gits in next time though :keule:

    I would price any bodywork job with your local dentsaway/chipsaway operatives first.
    They can usually do a perfectly good job at a fraction of the cost of a bodyshop.
    For example,my wife's Honda HRV was covered in tiny little shopping trolley/other people's doors dings and dents.
    I got the whole car done by dentsaway for £40.
    I would have been treble that in a bodyshop,I'm convinced.
    They will also do it at your work/home,saving you the bother of doing without the car overnight etc.
    Seriously,I cannot recommend these people enough.
    I can't remember the last time one of our company cars went to a bodyshop for run of the mill dings/scrapes,and we have over 20 cars.
    Simply no need.
    They can usually do plastic welding of plastics too.

    damage is too severe for the dent companies i have been quoted £500

    to paint front wing chipped paint and scratch, both rear quarters dented both sides and some twat has reveresed in to it , drivers door door ding and water bubble that got under paint from stone chips,

    it`s a lot of cash but the car is looking a bit worse for wear , and not even two years old.
