    Try a French polisher rather than a Polish polisher

    I like that one, Callie. Want! Even better would be a car coloured like Rubik cube or in rainbow colours. Or in black and white squares like a chessboard with pics of some of the Lewis chess pieces on it. Or a car with pics of lolcats or dragons.

    Isn't it fortunate for the aesthetic sensibilities of everyone that I can't drive? :D. (Watch out if I win the lottery, though).

    Now you've pointed that out, I've put a brick through the windscreen for good measure. Cheers, Sherlock

    (Pa Smiles has suggested T-Cut and a smaller car/bigger driveway for Mrs Smiles)

    I used to actually want one like that! What was I thinking, etc.

    I've got a similar-ish scrape on my car from a car park bollard incident in Gravesend shopping centre. I meant to try and cover it up with something from Halfords but about four years later, I still haven't got round to it. :D

    VW Polo. This model had problems with the oil pump. It would suddenly fail causing a major engine fail if you were unlucky.

    That was very politically incorrect of her.

    On the bright side, it's not a car that's going to be made significantly uglier, no matter what you do.

    twentythreedom never learns - you should always reverse into them so it looks like their fault. Which it always is of course, but it's best if you can just brush the Old Bill off rather than having to wait for the outcome of their 'investigation'.

    Parked on the next street, some RUBBISH DRIVER must've scraped it when parking :mad: Only noticed after I'd driven to London and parked in my mum's drive. No point claiming on the insurance. There must be people who aren't yet aware that I own the fucking roads here. Amateur cunts :mad:

    The missing trim from that hole will probably cost about 30 grand to replace. Cunts :mad:

    One of the joys of owning an old, non-classic or valuable car is that such incidents are sooo much less upsetting.

    Having said that this one’s fairly large. But I myself would prefer it to a much smaller hit by ones that goes deep into the metal showing the black underneath, or worse leaves a bodywork, deforming dent that will both require the help of a professional and lead to rust if ignored.

    Unless you really love your car and find any imperfection deeply annoying, I reckon you yourself could disguise it with off the shelf scratch treating products and a tin/ pen of the exact paint used by the manufacturer to such degree that it will be out of your mind and be a massive improvement on its current look. And cost you about £30.

    That isn't worth repairing on a Qashqai. Get a replacement door from a breakers and swap the interior trim and window regulator.
