I have scracthed my car when I drove it back into the drive-way after a stressful shopping trip to IKEA. No offense to IKEA but the whole experience at IKEA drove me to a moment of madness and on returning home, I clipped the edge of the gate
. No need to blag on but my left rear door & left rear panel got scratched and slightly dented :mad:.
As I had an immaculate driving history (up till now
), I haven't been to a car repair shop since passing my driving license, so car bodyshops are unknown territory.
I would be so grateful if you guys (i.e. e90 forum members) could give me a rough indication how much the repair cost will be. Also, I live in London so the cost could be even higher!
I estimate the job to be between 350 - 600 from an official BMW dealershop.
Speak to you soon
Probably not want you want to hear, but I had a door dent in my e90 recently - when I to clip the wall next to my drive.
It was maybe a 1inch dent in the door and also some damage to the plastic cill bodykit and also the metal cill beneath.
All in it cost £1800 to sort.
That covered a new door, cill, paintwork and blending the panels either side.
The doors on these cars are like paper.
