Somebody, accidently or otherwise has put a lovely deep 20cm scratch on the rear passenger door!!! Its going to cost £135 to put right!!! People are so careless or just plain jealous. It gets me really mad!!

If I thought it was done on purpose I would have the person who done it have their hands removed with an axe emoticon

It doesn´t help you in anyway, but is looks like an accidental scratch. Still very careless, so emoticon .

I know scratches which are done on purpose, we had a fool in our neighborhood who did not like people parking slightly on the pavement. That type of scratch starts with a deep indent and ends in a straigh line, caused by pulling away the tool.

Regards,

Sherlock Holmes.

If done on purpose it is realy time to get the axe and chop of some bodyparts.

If accidently, than you can leave a note with a name and/or telephone number. When no note is left after doing this kind of things it is done on purpose in my book!

So again, time for the axe!

It looks like an accidental scratch, but that's no reason to be happy about it. The car really stood out on the photographs as looking so like-new and well taken care of. Guess I shouldn't have made the compliments, it's like tempting the devil... emoticon Good luck, hope you can polish it away with Meguiar's Scratch-X or something, although I think you can only mask it to some degree but not really make it gone.

Re: Somebody scratched my 166!!!!Arrrrgh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Tjeerd, I agree. If someone makes a mistake, have at least the guts to take the consequenses (leaving a note etc.). It could also have been a child who didn´t notice. Anyway you look at it, still a nasty scratch, which makes you very mad.

I have one like this on the middle of one of the doors. Do you need a color matched polisher to mask it? Any suggesttions? My car is Blu Odissea.

The scratch is quite deep and will not polish out. I took it to a bodyshop and the guy there told me they will paint the sratch with a very fine paintbrush with a few layers until the paint sits slightly proud then cut it back with a polish then apply lacquer. I would rather have a professional job done rather than buy one of those kits and try do it it myself. The bodyshop assure me the repair will be totally invisible.

That's enough to get a man steaming mad. I know the feeling, my 166 is covered in scratches of someone elses carelessness. If I only could get one in the act...
But that doesn't help you of coarse.
I hope the bodyshop deliveres a good job, so you beautyful 166 is immaculate once again.

Good luck,
Yuri
