That's s**t...horrible to see that type of damage. The one last option you have is to wrap the car, which for the £800 cost would look amazing and quickly cover up the marks. It's not permanent, but it saves you spending a lot of money at this point. It would be something I'd consider.

Thanks for the advice. I have decided that I will repair partially the damage and will repaint all the car in 2-3 months when I have all the money for that. Unfortunately the BBK has to be postponed...

It may not be down to the metal, When clear coat is damaged like that it can look to be metal or a white colour, It may be worth a good detailer your way flatting and polishing...(Nothing to lose) or as another thought maybe a wrap..I personally am not a fan of wraps but could be a cheaper solution for you especially if you fancy a colour change.
1st option could be a winner, you never know......Good luck with it whichever way you go....
No need for any person to be so vindictive...

......... and change your insurance company!

Alternatively ... if it happens again take it out on a public road somewhere and then phone your insurance company! ... :thumbsup:
