    Some thoughtful soul decided to add a custom logo to my car whilst it was parked in a car park last night

    [​IMG]

    whilst i'm aware there are differing opinions on mods on ASN this one isn't to my taste, so i thought i'd have it removed.

    approx. price for a bonnet respray please.

    cheers in advance,

    S.

    Yeah I think your right as would say £500 or so.
    A few years back some person or thing sat on the bonnet of my E46 BMW. New bonnet from BMW and respray was £870 to give you an idea.

    I'm normally very short tempered but it's parked in a secure multi storey with with cameras. What's being mad gonna help? Just annoys me that I became a doctor to help ppl and that's what the world gives me in return.

    Oh well, there was a camera overlooking the car and the police are involved. I doubt anything will come of it but fingers crossed. Gonna have to hold off on getting the coilovers I just bought fitted and pay for this instead...

    Sad to see this, but I also had my car key'd 2 weeks ago. Didn't even want to drive it. It was done along the passenger side door, a long line at the top and a second line underneath which was deep and the metal started to show :puke:

    I didn't take a pic of the before as I couldn't bare looking at it. But it's fixed now and now i'm back to driving my baby :happy: still it's money being spent for no reason.

    I used chips away ChipsAway Charged me £150, so I also got a few other scratches around the car done to. total job £250. Have a look on the website and get a quote. Some pics of the job they've done.

    Hope you get it sorted soon.

    I've contacted an Audi Approved bodyshop that have quoted me £200 to spray and fit an '09 bumper without the insert but replace my aftermarket sensors which I didn't think was too bad. Gonna wait to hear what they have to say about this

    Glad you got it sorted mate. I hate scum doing things like that. When I was a youngster (and by no means a perfect example) i'd still appreciate a nice motor, certainly wouldn't find the requirement to etch something into it's paint!

    Chipsaway isn't a bad shout. I've got the tiniest little dent on the offside rear wing about the size of a 20p piece that's been winding me up. They could have a look at that too. Do you know if they do panel beating?

    P*ss take mate. Sorry to see what's happend, gutted for you. Just don't understand why people do this....Scum I'm guessing. Hope you get it sorted asap. Cost me £150 to get my bonnet sprayed.
    As other said for a full front respray about £400 maybe £450 depending on where you go.
    Good luck and hope they get caught but as you said doubt much will come off it

    One of the problems with resprays is the quality of paint used, a local mobile repairer used cheap filling for my rims and cheap paint on the body panel of the car. What he told me was it was long lasting, after 2 years the laquer started peeling off the rims and a year later after that the paint started to wear off.

    Sorry for your unfortunate event mate:slapped:

    ok being charged around £500 for the repair if the wing needs blending from Audi Approved paintshops. i've never had any experience with independents, so if anyone could recommend a good sprayer in W. Yorkshire or W. Midlands I'd be most appreciative.

    cheers again,

    S.

    you should never need to blend a bonnet in black tbh mate tipping into the wings is pretty rare but getting the blend on a black should be easy for most bodyshops

    pretty big money, but you do get what you pay for mate.....if it was me i'd be getting several quotes, picking the most suitable based on price/previous work

    buy cheap - buy twice

    might not be the best comment coming from a doctor, but i lost my faith in humanity a long time ago lol. nothing surprises me anymore.

    what annoys me more is that the car park claims that only 3 ppl went past my car in the 17hrs it was parked with them, and neither approached the car.

    except my car was parked next to the stairs to the exit on a full floor on a saturday night on the main night club street in the UK's 2nd city, and was empty when i returned. seems a lot of ppl in brum have learned how to teleport.

    possibly, but i've been referred to a sprayer in Cannock near my mechanic Midland VW (top blokes btw).

    he's put me in touch with a guy who's been spraying his racing bikes for years. and he's only charging £140. i might pop down and see what kind of outfit he's running, but i can't fault the recommendation.
