Bumper damage

I managed to scuff my front bumper while parking in our small enclosed driveway thusrday night.

It wasn't hugely deep or anything, but it was very noticeable, just in front of the off side front wheel...

I called our local 'Chips away' guy, who had a look and quoted me £115 to sort it, after some haggling, he has just finished and relieved me of just £90.

Have to say he did a fantasic job though, it looks as new, perfect colour match, can't even see where the scuffs were.

Highly reccommended

Of course, I still blame the missus for not leaving me enough room to get on the drive

Re: Bumper damage

Unlucky on the scrape: I did the same thing to my old Astra last year swinging into my (very narrow) garage and caught the front area of my driver's side wheel arch on the concrete.

Sounds like you got a good quote though: I ended up paying near the £120 mark when I got mine fixed, they did do a very very good job though...!
