Thanks for the heads up. I agree it's probably a respray - it won't t-cut out as that part of the car is just plastic. Not sure how much a respray is in the UK. If it's around £300 it's less than I was expecting.Probably need a bumper respray unless you find a touch up specialist. Here in the US I would expect about $300 to respray the whole bumper
I agree completely. I went into the supermarket, spoke with security who advised there's no CCTV coverage at the back of the carpark which is where I was parked. Infuriating!why should u pay for it, find out who that was, cctv will capture the plates and then claim on their insurance, this is a hit n run, inform police, they will investigate and access the footage. I hate who do that and drive off, ***
I imagine closer to £400 at an Audi approved body shop. I would try to give it a polish first.As a guide somewhere between 250-400 pounds but don't always go with the cheapest as if they don't use the correct paint it'll be peeling off in a year or two.
It looks like you might get away with a machine polish though from that pic?
I did try t-cut, was there for nearly an hour buffing away. I was gutted as it fixed a rather large scratch on my gf's fiesta.As said, you can't tell from the pic, but, it may polish out. How come you say that it can't be T-Cutted? T-Cut is a paint polish, doesn't matter what material is painted?
But as the lower valance has popped out a bit, suggests there could be further damage behind!?
A good repaint would be around £200-400 depending on the bodyshop.
Dave. In my brief experience here at the body shop, you get away with it cos the bumber is plastic and the car is (mainly) metal, so as long as the shop mixes the colour correctly it will look great, cos in anycase plastic and steel absorb the colour in a slightly different way so they will never be 100%..........With metallic paint, it's best to have the body part fitted so you can blend into the next panel, unless you are perfect at mixing the paint to get the colour and flake spot on!?
May get away with it on a bumper though.
Hence why bumpers always look a different colour to the car panel next to them. Even when new!Dave.
