Smart repair in Essex/East London

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

 

not strictly a G30 but hopefully someone will have a recommendation. Recently got hit by a rock (the size of a effing asteroid) flung up from under a lorry’s tire. Massive chip on passenger door. “Touched up” with BMW oem touch up paint in mineral white (always intended to be short term) but the colour match is nowhere near. 
 

many recommendations for smart repair specialists in Essex/East London area?

 

pics attached for pity

Maybe try chipaway? It's like halfords that are everywhere. You just need to find where is your local branch. 


yup had a quote from them, sent them pictures, coin next to damage for reference, distance away from edge of door, A96 paint code etc. Quoted me £125 plus Vat - was happy with that, asked for reg number to book in, they phoned me back and said that because it’s an X5 they recommend blending in with wing and re quoted at £300 plus VAT saying that original quote was based on a 1 series.

 

hard pass

Standard practice though isn’t it, even in the BMW workshops. Servicing/Maintenance/Repair charge = vehicle purchase price times x where x is the base price for the work.
