Returned from holiday to find that my Mito has been keyed. The car is parked on the street but for some reason only mine has been targeted....maybe because it's red:rolleyes: They have done a right good job too - bumper to bumper with some double scores on the doors. How much do you reckon I would be looking at to get it fixed?

To add insult to injury, because my car has been sitting dormant for a while it now won't start. The only breakdown cover I have is the AA roadside assistance which came with the car, and I'm sure that doesn't cover within a 1/4 mile of your home.

Shocking, some people are just unreal. Re won't start, try bumping it or charging battery if you can.

If they are deep scratches then insurance might be cheaper, or chips away/local independent paint specialist.

Sorry to hear. My car has been keyed twice now. The car probably needs almost all the panels resprayed.

But I have used touch up paint to paint over the long scratches. It looks much better and you can never tell from a distance its been keyed. And for $10 its a good alternative to respraying the whole car

Just stumbled across this by chance. But funnily enough i saw a red Mito up by Inch/Moredun that had been keyed. It was a metallic red one I'm pretty sure. This doesn't happen to be you by any chance is it? (noticed you were from Edinburgh)
