    Hi all
    Need an opinion/advice,got a scratch about 1.5 inches long and 2mm wide
    just to the left of the kidney grill on me E90.
    Took it to spray tech sunderland looked at it and said £140 because its black
    and the whole front needs to be sprayed
    now its not the £140 but the thought of having the whole(i take it he means the bit between the bumpers)front done, frightens me even if its a proper job,
    is/does he need to go to that length taking it to some others tomorrow
    but put it on here to see what opinion's you have.
    Cheers
    Ian

    This is pretty standard practice im afraid, its so they can blend the colour in to the rest of the panel. If they didnt do this youd more than likely see the repair theyve done as the there would be a spot of brand new paint on the original paint work.

    Its nothing to worry about as long they are a proffesional bodyshop..
