Scratches - Dealer or Chips away ?


My wife has just dragged an aluminium garden chair across the boot of my Ti and left a deep scratch about 2inches long....yes i've already filed for divorce but in the meantime where would people get it repaired ?

Is the dealer the best bet or just use chips away ?

It'll need paint as is too deep to buff out.

Has your dealer got a good paint shop or do the send it out?

Try a smart repair technician or a good body shop.

OMG, what a nightmare! I feel for you Mikey...
Check with your dealer, but they'll probably rip you off knowing that you love your car

The paint is new so matching won't be a problem. Ask your dealer to use the smart repairer they use. That way you're covered
