New car - scratch
« on: November 07, 2021, 04:48:28 PM »
Hello

Had my car barely a month (new) and discovered a scratch today on one of the back doors.

Apart from being angry (I donít see how this could be accidental unless a bike/car was moving; itís not a door opening dent), Iím wondering what the most effective way is of dealing with this. I canít afford an expensive fix, nor an insurance claim, at this time.

Itís a about 3 centimetres long in sort of flat W with a line above. Itís down at least to the next layer as I can feel the depth.

Bl**dy annoying.

Any recommendations, at least something to  protect it from worsening till I can get it fixed professionally?

Thanks

A photo would really help if you get a chance. Sympathise with you though - it's a horrible feeling when it happens (with my last car I came back to the car park and found someone had carelessly reversed into it - causing 1500 GBP of damage).

I had car park damage a few years ago and got it sorted by Chips Away.
Spot on and you couldn't tell it had been repaired afterwards.  :)

Ditto another vote for Chips Away.
