Yeah I have been looking at other cars and I'd say 50% have some kind of scrape or scratch on them.

I'll lower that to 20%. If I remember correctly you recently paid a body shop to do some work on your car is that right?

How did you not see a great big lorry in your tiny car!?

You could try and use compound to polish it out but it probably needs a body shop repair

Mates just scraped his used 2009 Suzuki Swift on the left hand side around the wheel arches. He's only had it for a month or two and cost him £3500. We all make mistakes and he's not bothered about cosmetic damage as long as it's mechanically sound.
