Here's a couple of photos...

Tar spots on the left hand side...

Minor scratch inside the drivers side door...
Image

Minor scrapes on the passenger side wing mirror...
Image

Minor scrape on the passengers side around the wheel arches....
Image


Can't take a photo of the dent as its to minor. I'd say the worst are the tar spots, followed by the scratch inside the drivers door, followed by the wing mirror, then the scrape around the wheel arches and finally the little dent which I can't even photograph.

Yep undoubtedly on it's way to being a write off. And that's only after 2 years, get ready for Winter my friend.
I would not blame yourself for the mark on the inside, l think that it's just very thin spraying coats.
my girlfriend has that on her C3 window buttons.

I know it was me because I saw myself do it with my ignition key, either when getting into or out of the vehicle.

Never mind, you could always put some grey tape around the handle. To prevent it happening again.

It’s not too bad, after nearly two years all I’ve caused is a scratch on the door and some minor scrapes on the wing mirror and passenger side wheel arch.

I’d call it wear and tear and I’d much rather have the car then not.

To reverse the trend, don't keep up the bad trend. Happy Christmas and 2021

I’ve got this thing called cosmetic repair insurance it was £ 600 from the dealer when I bought my new car, do you reckon it’s worth claiming on it for the tar spots and wheel arch scuff?

Worth asking if there's no additional cost to you I reckon.

Yeah no additional cost, I’m covered for the first three years of ownership and my car is two years old towards the end of February 2021.

Might be worth waiting a bit until Winter is over just in case anything else comes along.
Hopefully not of course.
