Before contacting a body shop, try Dent Devils. They may not be able to help with the scratches, but they work wonders with dents. I had a motorcycle delivery ride push his bike into my car causing a large dent. Bodyshops all told me it would need filler/ respray etc. Dent Devils removed the dent to the extent that you can’t see a thing - £165!

Had 4 x MPS4Ss fitted to R plus 2x Conti 6s to the other one. By Kwik Fit mobile.
Can you believe I can’t. VG price and great fitter.
Won’t get chance to use them for 3 months? Ironically did it as MOT’s are due.
Since cancelled bas we all have 6 months grace.
Btw the 310 R is near 3 years old and still special. Am looking fwd to lavishing it with upgrades in years to come.
If I make it through this horror show. Isolate my friends and feel for the younger with commitments and insecurity.
Arrived 15/5/17 Mk 7.5 R Lapiz 5dr DSG, Prets, Pan Roof, DCC, Rear View Cam.
Our other car is a Mk7 GTI DSG 5dr Tungsten, Vienna, Rear View Cam, Park assist.

I’ve spent two days cleaning and polishing the car, I’m bloody knackered but pleased with the results, Couldn’t believe the amount of tar on the car. Car still wearing its winter wheels & tyres - they are being swapped next week

@ Highland28 feel for you  :sad: hopefully it doesn’t end up costing a fortune.

@ CHB Great timing!  :grin: 
My youngest son arrived home to stay the end of last week as uni halls were clearing people out. First time I’d seen my other car for weeks and immediately noticed the two rear tyres were on around 2mm or slightly less on the outer edges (3.5mm in middle despite pressures being kept in tolerance).
I quickly phoned the local tyre depot to get a couple tyres booked in for Tuesday. They stayed open for my son but were waiting to shut up shop, they did the whole safe distance thing and he brought the car home again with new rubber boots.
Damned if they didn’t replace the fronts instead!! The ones on there still had 4mm plus  :rolleyes: :grin:
So I still have semi-slicks on the rear  :angry:
Not much I can do as they closed up to hibernate due to business drying up overnight.
They’re normally very good so I’ll forgive them.
I’d hoped to rest up the newly cleaned GTI for a few weeks but looks like I’ll still have to commute in it. More chance of being pulled over than ever right now so tyres need to be in good condition.

@Eccie lovely to see a white GTI with that much shine. :afro:

I’d hoped that would raise a few smiles.
Normally I’d have been pretty hacked off but under the circumstances I did find it quite funny!

Having done lots of long mucky journeys over the winter months, it was looking a bit sorry for itself so I gave it a wash. Before and after...
