Hi all

I've an old 1999 BMW E46 318i. There are a few scrapes on the near side rear wheel arch (please see pic attached)..

I've had a few quotes who want to paint the whole rear panel and door after sorting out the scrapes to match the exact colour but I am not that fussed (or rich for that mattter and the car is old anyway).

I've had a similar repair on an Astra where only the affected area was painted and the result was not bad at all.

* Is such a 'patch' repair possible on this one? How much would it cost?
* Is there any skirting/ cover for wheel arches on E46 and do you think I can put them on, so this bit gets covered?

Thanks for your replies in advance..

Have you tried ringing a local Smart Repair Agent in your area?
They will quote you cheaper than a bodyshop, and will do it at your house or place of work.
I am sure someone in Essex will have either used/know someone within your area.
As for prices they will vary, so shop around and decide once you have all the information to hand :)
