Default A5 Scratch removal help needed!

Hey,

I tried to park my brand new 2 day old A5 convertible in my tiny garage - ironically to stop it getting damaged - and ended up scuffing the front left wheel arch lip on the garage door frame.

Now there are a series of hair width scratches on the lip, that have exposed the metal beneath. It actually sounds worse than it is but I really want to rectify this as the car is brand new.

I don't want to risk trying to do it myself and making it worse, so can anyone recommend a good scratch removal shop?

Is this likely to cost me a s**tload? And what is the price of a new panel (front left)?

Does anyone think the dealership will throw me a bone and rectify this? The car is only 48 hours old!

Gutted.

Nappster.

Touch Up Paint from PaintScratch.com

get the paint code from inside your trunk its on a little metal square.

and order the paint marker.

DONE! it should only be like $50-$60 at most.

i would suggest taking it to a body shop and ask them. you can get quotes.

those touch up pens are ok, i takes alot of work if you want to "hide" the pen mark too.

Dud don't even waste your money. Body shops are thieves. If your that worried get the spray kit its 56.00 even for the base and the clear coat and the spray trigger all the cleaning stuff you need. A shop is going to tell you to repaint the whole pannel. When that rarel
