Soooo, i got my first scratches

Post by raven » Fri Jun 26, 2020 8:40 pm

I wanted to go for a drive today and found my care with a huge scratch on the front bumper. Someone hit my parked car and drove away :(
I have some paint damage on the gold trim, and the bumper has to be rewrapped. Luckily the rims dont have any scratches on them.
And hopefully the wrap protected the paint below.

Im not looking forward to the amount of work and money its going to take to get this fixed :(

Looks like 90% of it will buff out.

Thanks, arseholes can be found anywhere sadly enough.

So far i have on the list:
Contactin insurance company
Filing complaint at the police station for the hit and run so i get the coverage by the insurance
Contacting the body shop
Contacting the wrapper
Most likely putting the engine tune back to the stock tune in case they want to attach it to the computer at the bmw body shop
getting stuff fixed
and then putting the tune back

Not really looking forward to it

Yeah i managed to remove most of it from far away you dont really notice unless you know where to look, but it still hurts a lot :)

after detailing it, you still see a clear line on the wrap, and some of the paint is missing on the trim

:( Had similar a few times. Hopefully not too pricey to sort out. The sooner it's sorted sooner you can get on with enjoying your Zed. :driving:

I think a sheet of 2000 wet n dry on a block will flat that out followed by a machine polish but you must be careful not to go through the lacquer

Sorry to hear this raven. Always a shame when your pride and joy is damaged. Especially when they leave and don’t leave a note.
Hopefully it can be sorted without too much hassle. Just a shame it happened in the first place.
