    The best advice I can give, is do the same as the dealers do. call a SMART repairer from yellow pages or google for your area. Cost is generally about £80 a panel/ or bumper.

    A relative had her brand new car damaged in a car park, with the bumper paint down to plastic. Called out a local specialist who repaired it same day outside the house for £80 inc a guarantee for the lifetime of her owning the car. you seriously cant see the area that was damaged, its perfect again. result, as no insurance excess or loss of no claims etc
