some advice please.. my 6 months old SILVER Hyundai Accent 2011 got scratched yesterday. I was properly parked when a car trying to park beside me sideswiped my rear bumper. (good thing i was still inside the car and havent left). The driver was an elderly lady kaya di ko na sinabihan kahit inis na inis na ako... e paano naman kabago bagong kotse binangga na. If it was my other older car, i wouldnt have mind (marami ng scratches yun hehe).
The old lady was apologetic and on the spot called her agent and he assured me i can bring it to WHEELS in E Rod to have it repainted.
after medyo nawala na inis ko, after close observations, damage isnt as bad as i thought..rear bumper has scratches. Tamang tama i had an appointment the same day for car detailing, na buff nila and nawala yung most of the scratches.. ibang material kasi ang bumper di ba.. What is left is about a 2 or 3 inch na manipis scratch na itim na (tanggal talaga paint)
Now im thinking, pa pa hassle pa ba ako na ipa insurance sa kanila? Iiwan ko pa car ko mga 2 days yan, and then repaint whole bumper yan, inisip ko di ba mas ok yung orig paint kesa patungan pa nila ng new coating? baka di pa sakto shade?
I remember reading before services nagoofer spot repaint sa mga scratches. Can someone pls give me sugegstions on what shops do these?
Sabi pa nga nung dealing shop, kung ayaw ko daw talaga buong bumper, option ko is pumunta sa paint center, patimpla sa expert ng correct shade and pa-sprayan sa kanila yung area.. mga 200-300 pesos lang daw pwede na. At least sa malayo di na halata yung scratch na kulay itim... pero close inspection halata siguro konti...
any suggestions? aside from hassle of the insurance option, inisip ko baka sabihin OA ko naman scratch lang na maliit e pa repaint ko pa buong bumper...
well at least di naman grabe. could have been worse...
