    Sorry to put this in this section bu the classifieds wont work for some reason.

    Some arsehole decided he didn't want to look in his mirrors and so pulled out on me, drove off before i got his plate.

    Please let me know if you got a spare one, its for a 8P A3 03-08, only in akoya silver though, cant be assed for body shop re-spray yet.

    Thanks in advance.

    That looks like it could be pulled out as the 'ridge line' seems to be fairly intact.

    there people out there who do paintless dent removals they are usually very good and quite cheap too try having a look in the yellow pages i bet they'll be able to get most of that out or get it looking a dam sight better than what it looks like now mate give it a try if it saves you getting a new wing etc.. its got to be worth a try

    TBH thats a minor knock even though twat should of stopped & owned up.

    Thats on the crease line, you'll never get that out perfect without a minor fill & sand/paint imho, you could get a dent magician to advise of the best bump/scuff guy in your area, they know them all usually, they'll fix it up properly without a wing/bonnet blend needed for a small amount & tbh I'd do the fill/sand myself with some P38 from halfords & a multi pack of wet/dry & ask a local BS to give it a blow over with some paint/lacquer.

    I actually use Abranet blocks & pads, absolutely fecking amazing gear, last forever & do such a good job much better than the paper version.
