The only time I have ever been happy with a repair is when I bought a 3 month old TTRS in one of the metallic or pearl blacks, they had done a smart repair on passenger door, said it was bird poo but the car had been on display at a Golf tournament and looked a mess.Depends on the bodyshop really.
This guy I used is very meticulous, but as even he explained, he’s up against a factory robot applied finish where the margins are finer.
He repaired my recently departed 8V after some ‘spots’ appeared on the rear Qtr panel, contaminate in the base coat from factory, never seen anything like it before he said, especially something taking 3 years to come through the colour layer.
I agree repairs aren’t something I like either, but things happen and there’s no other Avenue but to have a paint job.

I told them to repair it correctly and if I could tell it had been repaired I wouldn’t accept the car, after being repaired it looked v good to me, I asked my lad (Panel Beater and painter) to tell me which door had been done, the only way he found it was by running his finger across the v bottom edge of the door skin
