    A mysterious dent has appeared on my bonnet just right of the grill, it's about 25mm in diameter and been pushed in about 8mm.. I have no fookin idea where it came from?!? It hasn't marked the paint either which is odd but lucky I suppose.

    Anybody got any tips for removal?

    halfords, cost you under a ton i expect, at least they dont break the paint and obviously no hassle with bad match

    Or if you are going to be at GTi International later this month they usually have Dent Masters or similar on site for the weekend, and they will do dents for £30 (from memory?). I've had them done on my S3 and my Ibiza at Inters in previous years.

    Most Audi dealers and any biggish car garage will contract in a dent man for a day each week.

    Had one removed at Audi Stoke 3 years ago and it cost me £40ish and you could not tell it had ever been dented. but it all depends how easy the dent can be accessed from the backside. Panels, ribs etc.

    Do any kids play ball games where you live :ohmy::ohmy::ohmy::ohmy: sounds like it may possibly be the cause.

    Should be there.. as it's only down the road it'd be rude not to!
    Brilliant I'll hang on until then as it could save me some ca$h.

    Nice one.

    £40.00 sounds good but as you said the back of the dent is impossible to get to as a rib runs right behind it.

    Could be a ball or something.. going to have to start putting it in the garage over night or maybe terminate some kids!? lol

    Excellent.. I didn't know there was an ASN stand. Too much work to do before that date to get mine on the stand I think! Engines good but got to get on with some aesthetics now.

    Keep us posted on your turbo progress then.
