Recommended scratch repair

Post by Calham04 » Sat Feb 03, 2018 4:30 pm

So first post on forum and unfortunately not a great one some low life has decided to key my pride and joy. This is a reoccurring problem with having my golf keyed 4 times and now the macan. Police have cctv footage of the scumbag do it on the golf but have failed to act in anyway and now the macan has been keyed :( so i am in need of some help for recommendations to get this sorted im based in norfolk.

Thanks in advanceImageImageImage

(Oh, and welcome to the forum!)

The only real way to resolve is to spray through both doors and blend ....£2-300 per panel☹️

Touch-up and even local dings and dents / sprayers will not be very effective at disguising that degree of damage (it looks through to the primer)

Vandalism is such a pointless thing. Can’t see what satisfaction others can get from mindless acts of destruction. It’s gutting when things like that happen. Hope you get it sorted without too much expense. I’d agree with Paul about a proper respray.

Personally I wouldn't trust this to a smart repair and would take it to a proper body shop to be sprayed and blended in. I would guess around £750 to sort this out so marginal as to whether its worth claiming but probably not. Absolute wankers the jealous twats that do this. Really sorry for you.

So sorry to see such mindless vandalism,shear jealousy,takes the enjoyment out of owning the Macan ,I believe some people think you’ve had them given to you and not got through hard work ,always careful where I leave ours and it’s locked up at night,if I had to leave it parked on the road at night I wouldn’t Have bought it.
IMO needs a professional repair probably best part of £800/£1000.

I used a franchise repair company called Revive for a scratch I picked up on my SD, what a mistake that was, the car looked worse after the so called repair. I ended up paying the guy just to get rid of him and then took the car to my OPC recommended contractor and paid a second time - be warned

Guys thanks for all the comments much appreciated. I've had my estimate for repair through porsche and they came back with £2792 would like to see what you guys think about this price, i personally thought that was bit steep for just a scratch.
