    Hi all,

    Quick question. I (very stupidly) decided to do battle with a bollard as I was driving out of Tesco's car park today. Not sure how I did it, but I completely failed to spot it.

    Result: need minor repairs to both nearside doors and nearside rear wing. Some scratches and a very minor dent in the nearside pax door.

    I thought I would use the opportunity to deal with the rust, as well (usual spots, rear wheel arches and front wings).

    Can anybody suggest a shop in Kent which would charge me less than the car is worth?

    Thanks,

    Artyom

    Well, it's definitely less than the car was worth! Any suggestions for garages though? And thanks a lot!

    As long as there are no bollards on the M25, I suppose Essex would also work... And thanks again!

    If still required... Scuffbusters in Tunbridge Wells are excellent.

    'The body shop' in Sevenoaks did a very good price for me on a front spoiler I bought. Looked very good as well but not tried them with smart repairs.

    Nice guy too. I paid £60 when all others were asking £90
