dent,chip,tear and scuff - help !!

Had my Alfa 147 for 3 weeks so far its aquired a parking dent and chip to off side rear door, a half inch very fine tear in the leather in the passenger side seat and tonight the edge of the 17" supersport alloy has been scuffed - about half inch round right on the edge near the tire.........

and before you ask -

Parking dent - jealous/careless car park damage by third party
Leather tear - Ikea and Alfa's don't mix !
Alloy scuff - the Mrs parking whilst being harrased by white van man

I've heard about places that do repair work to cosmetic damage for reasnoble prices ?? Anyone got a recommendation - my excess is 300 so would like to keep it under that

thanks for any help

good news - getting CSC exhaust fitted on Wednesday

I have a similar problem. My dent is from a small stone...I am going to fix it these couple of days so I will inform you.

If the dent is not too deep you can use the...what do you call scrach remover or something...

I just have my rim repaired after having a close encounter with a rock on the thrid lane of the highway. The result was a very deep dent in het rim. I got it out for repair. They filled the dent, made it smooth again and respraied the complete rim. It's like new again. You can't see a thing on it.

Price= 60Euro

Look up car bodywork repair in your local yellow pages,and you will probably find a load of entries for Smart cosmetic repairers such as chipsaway or dentmaster.The RAC also has a number for a company it reccomends on its website.
Normally 30-50 per dent.
