    Don't you just hate people that scratch others cars for no good reason!
    Came to the car park at college and found this, not happy !

    I got to try find a way to fix this as it the only scratch on the car, the little annoying thing is that yesterday I got my windscreen replaced and two guys asked me what I use to wax the car as it looked shiny,

    Tossers, will never understand this, but then again I am a human who has worked for what we have, unlike these morons who will never own such things without stealing them!

    Makes my blood boil, this does !!! Jealous barstewards who can't stand seeing other people having cool things go and commit blatant acts of vandalism on decent folks' pride and joy, just because they will never have the brains or the motivation to go out and get themselves a job and be able to buy themselves the things that honest hard work brings. Hope you get it sorted soon, Dude. :( xx

    That is pure sh*te. Hate seeing that. Think your only long term option is a spray job but in the mean time try Colour Magic. It comes with a scratch stick. Use the stick then layer on the Colour Magic. Best done with a buffer if you can lay your hands on one. It will lessen the scratch but you need to do it regularly. I had to do it to a Lexus I used to lease before I handed it back and I got past the lease car inspector. Good luck

    By the looks of that even without a close up I'd say it's going to need a respray unfortunately

    Not a permanent fix by any means but....

    There's a thread on (I think) the 8L forum where a guy had his car keyed and he used a magic marker! He showed before and after pics and you couldn't see it after.

    Could be a temp solution until you have the funds for a proper spray job.

    could touch the scratch in till you get it painted , the marker pen is a good idea can't see it lasting a long time tho but could work as said as a temp fix

    Try doing a search for "Chip X" and then when a link appears for Cupra.net forum and there is a discount code on there....you can specify your car and colour. It will cost about £45 ish but it's well worth it for a temporary cover until you can get it resprayed. You do everything by hand as all you need is supplied in the kit.

    Sorry to hear that, mate. Touch pen is a temp fix.

    I also hate those losers who have no idea how to buy a decent car by getting themselves a job.

    Feeling a bit better now, spent time to make it as good as possible and I think I can live with it now (even though I know it's there!)

    It's not invisible, but I doubt any casual passer by (or even anyone taking a quick look at your car) would notice it. Decent work.

    The older I get, the more I'm in favour of capital punishment... I hope whoever did this to your car dies a slow, painful death as their favourite pets watch.

    First cleaned the area then used T-Cut Original and Autoglym Polishing cloth to buff it, then applied Autoglym polish.
    Did this process a few time for the end result

    It look quite deep at first but I scratched it with my nail and a little bit went away so I decided to give this a go before I got it professionally repaired

    I think it was worth it not gonna respray it anytime soon now, just gonna have to get my spoiler fitted now
