    Hi guys, just after some advice really. I accidentally drove slowly into a pillar in a carpark, dont ask lol. Anyway now i have a medium sized scuff on the passenger side corner of the front bumper just under the headlight. Its fairly deep scuffs so I'm guessing will need to be resprayed. Ive heard its cheaper to get a mobile restorer to do the work than take it to a bodyshop.

    So my question is has anyone got any recommendations in the south east Kent area. I'm based in Dartford if that helps. Also what sort of price will i be looking at. Ill try get a pic up tomorrow.

    Thanks

    It's cheaper for a reason!!!
    Take it to a bodyshop IMO and get it repaired properly!!!

    Second that... you drive an Audi, not a shed, so get it fixed properly! I'd bet money you'd later regret getting a cheap fix being done...

    tbh im not planning on keeping car for much longer. The cheaper i can get it done the better really, but of course i still want it done properly.

    Hmmm, from the photos I am willing to bet good money you could make that look a lot better pre-sale with a machine polishing. Might be worth trying to find a detailer on Detailing World that could have a look for you.

    Hi Jonesy
    Looks like a bread and butter job for a smart repair technician, a job like that would take less than two hours to prepare and paint at a rough cost of £70.

    But you would be able to tell. Not come across a spot repair that you can't . . . Well, spot!
