Chip repair advice needed!!!

Hi all,

Anyone any experience with using any of the mobile chip repairers.

I have only had my new black 335d for 2 weeks now and I already have a 2mm bonnet chip. I was gonna try doing it myself but then decided not to, what with the car being so new and the chip being in the most noticeable part of the car.

I would appreciate if anyone could tell of their experience of using these mobile chip companies. How well do they repair the chip and was it worth doing etc.?

Yep - chipsaway seem to be visit my office an awful lot and they have done several of my colleagues BMW's.

I'm going to try them myself shortly as I have a small scratch on my rear wing.

I've used Chips Away and their service was very good.

Get a reference from someone who has used your local Chips away operative first. The one in my area was a waste of money, I can do just as good a job with a touch up paint brush.
The one in my Mum's area was brilliant and I would use him again.
