    I was just quoted £60 for colour coding side strips, door handles and boot catch lip. The company is http://www.revive-uk.com/repairs/

    The guy who runs the part if the franchise near me made the massive scuff that my Mum put in her Audi (car park/bollard incident) look like it was never there. They come to you and would paint it while you are at work etc. Its all quick drying paint that is ready mixed on the vans. Clever stuff. And reasonably priced!

    And NO. Im not part of the franchise. I just think that they are very good!

    thanks, sounds like a chips away sort of company. i did go to bmw for the paint in the end and was a perfect match. i think it was £18 in the end with a bottle of clear coat in a twin pack.
