    Hi Guys

    Recently moved over to Mercedes from a Lexus and so far my journey hasn’t been great to be honest , quite a few issues on a 2015 e220d SE obsidan Black 4 door

    Anyway the other day I noticed some cretin has scraped the left side of my vehicle in thier car / van across 2 doors and lower body trim

    Some of the damage is not bad once cleaned with T-cut but there are 2 scratches that are very deep and have ridges

    Today to compound the misery another lovely person dinged the paint off my driver door whilst getting out of thier vehicle , paint has flaked back to undercoat from what I can see :)

    Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced bodyshop in and around London or Kent where I work to get these issues plus a back bumper respray

    I’m really depressed about the car so could do with a little soothing

    How much do you guys think I would pay for 2 doors , lower trim and back bumper respray roughly ?

    Thanks for any input in advance

    Sorry to hear about your bad luck.

    My paint guy works on £200 per panel plus £100 per panel it needs blending to.
    A rear door would be £400 therefore. Bumpers don't normally need blending.

    I had repairs in Kent (Maidstone area) to keyed car Wing, door and rear panel to the metal - metallic paint £450 cash - full panel spray, not blended. Wouldn’t have known it wasn’t factory after. I’ll dig out the details if the location works for you?

    They’re by Rochester airport, I shopped around before I trusted anyone and they were spot on.
    I’m working away at the mo but will put up their details before the weekend. Recommend you drop in and speak to them about cash and don’t rush them! They will of course need to see the damage.
