Bloody Golfers....



will it be easy to get out ? Luckily I can claim on the golf course's insurance so might ask Chips Away to add the stone chips onto the quote

No expert but I'd say thats probably an easy spot, most of the bonnet is single skinned I seem to remember from imagining what it looks like - if so they can probably push it from behind fairly simply.

just a quick update for those of you who are interested

took it into ChipsAway and they said that the whole bonnet would have to be resprayed after the repair, at least it would get the stone chips sorted at the same time, BUT i have a dilemma.
I 'm a bit worried that the respray will not match the rest of the car exactly although they did a good job on a small part of my Mrs' motor last week but this is a much larger area.
Im wondering if BMW would be a better option, i havent had a chance though to get an insurance quote from them and have had to submit the ChipsAway one.

The dent is noticeable if you look for it and im wondering if a respray would stand out more than the dent itself ?

any advice would be most welcome..
