    Look at what she call's a scracth. FFS
    Any idea if it could be sorted by a decent paint job or will the bumper need replaceing. Looks like the bumper is not dented or split.

    is the bumper actually scratched or is it just paint transfer from the other car....presuming that the other car was a white one.

    if it is just paint transfer then you should be able to polish it off with some aggressive polish, not by hand though

    It was a stone wall that she slid it accross. So it's down to the undercoat. It fell's as rough as hell.

    Oh man, not good to see. That's more than just a scratch for sure!!

    I think you're looking around £150ish (good price) for a full bumper respray, more at a main dealer.

    Oh Noooooooooooooooooo.

    Shan, the missus Coupe cost £160 at a local independent body shop. The damage was I'd say slight worse because there was a dent as well.
