Thank- you Mr Sainsbury delivery man who last week bashed the rear curve line on my baby with his blue boxes and then scuttled off without telling me, I've been depressed all week.
I got recommended a dent repairman from a good friend of mine who is a car restorer and he did wave his magic hammer this afternoon and it disappeared. Baby is out of hospital and looking good

The back door didnt fully latch so gave it a poke with my thumb. I think i had my phone in my hand. Theres a thumb shaped indent now but only really visible from the side. If I didnt know it was me id assume someone gave it a little jab after an arguement or something.

Yes the panels are super soft and squidgy. I am terrified of someone hitting it when Im parked up somewhere. My works car park is horrible for getting your car pranged :(

I guess as they spent all that money on high tensile chassis material the bodywork doesnt need to be as stiff. Its very mild steel like lol.

In the cars defence I saw a french fool with music blaring reverse his ten year old Megan into my rear bumper. He was really shifting but hit the brakes as he hit it. It hit the rear grey plastic and hasnt left a mark or moved at all. It feels like theres metal directly behind it. So thats one worry off your mind.

Also the bulging plastic at the base of the doors is usually the default interface when you get an inconsiderate park next to you. Not sure if that was the idea but it looks better than those bath mat sized things halfway up the door from renault.

Id rather have dings

LOL BATH MATS :) Epic. Just lost my coffee with that one. hahahaha.

I have had several people "hit" my door with theirs and the plastic has done it's job well.
Some Autoglym protector on it and it doesn't even leave a mark.

Glad I added the smart repair
What does that include? I was never offered anything like that?
Got it with the car £450 for 3 years any dents or damage that can be smart repaired just call them out pay £10 and its repaired
Hmmm. That is tempting seeing as in three years I have to give the car back and any damage to it I have to pay to sort out anyway.
It is one of those warranty situations isn't it? Will it blow up and I wish I had it or do I take it and nothing happens and I lost £450 :)
