Arrgh! I scratched it -South Coast Repair


Jan 21, 2020
Sussex UK
I just scraped the front bumper pulling close to the verge on a country road to avoid another car!! So annoyed. 30 years of driving 20k miles a year and never put scratch on my car. Buy my first new car (Tesla) and 5 months in -Arrgh!


Any advice on what type of repair it will need, how to choose a good repairer, what it should cost.... Any suggested repairers on south coast between Brighton and Portsmouth?

I had some very similar damage repaired on my last Prius by Chipsaway. They are a franchise, and they will come out to you to do the repair, under a tent, but their system seemed very good. Took around 2 hours to fix and the resulting repair was invisible afterwards. IIRC the cost was around £350.
