    oops sorry, maybe let her finish it off, at least Lois looks better than just L

    has it gone through to the metal?

    touch-up from the dealer may do it, otherwise get onto yellow pages there are a few dent/scratch guys that should be able to sort it

    Try T-Cut bro, it can take the edge of light scratch marks and blend the paintwork abit.

    Worth a try bro imo

    Cheers, Rich

    T-cut.

    if your daring, you could find some matching 'touch up' then T-Cut it off. A friend had good result with that, but i dont like the "Micro scratchs" TCut leaves, specially when seen in direct sun light.

    Glad you didnt say she was 17

    Now whilst you T-Cut your car, you can scan in that July mag

    'Colour magic' polish does a good job too at covering slight scratches.

    If its a white car it works well, not bad on red or black either, but unsure about metalics etc

    similar thing happened to me a few month back
    some little f*kka went down the side of my car with his handle bars

    if you can get your fingernail into the scratch it will need respraying - had to get that done to mine - the whole side!!!
    £450+ at the dealer, but i know a good bodyshop and he did a cracking job for £220

    is it a silver car?

    cheers for all your comments

    @ Trident, yeh will be trying that tommorow for definate cheers mate ! and it is metallic silver
    @ Richins, don't really want to try that as it isn't a cheap car, it's a £6k Bmw M3 so don't want to make it look ****ty. Email me and I will reply with a copy of the mag mate
    @ Monkeez, yeh it is a silver car, I can't get a fingernail in it but is is quite prominent
    @ skinnygav lmao !
    @ _gm_ a learner in a BMW M3 ? good idea though ha ha !
