    smart repairs are listed on most search engines - google /yell etc....

    they would be companies like chips away or nwsr they charge about £65 quid for a bumper repair and about £80 for textured finishes

    they do interior and exterior repairs and are generally very good - go to your local garage and sit up for an hour or two - i'm sure one will turn up to do repairs to thier stock and sale cars - if not ask your local dealer which company they use and then call them direct - and remember weekend/out of hours work can be cheaper still
