My guess is a rock or something kicked up by a truck.How did that happen!
It was strange. I did hear something but couldn't really tell if something had hit the car until I saw the aftermath.That's one MF stone chip! You must have heard that?
Wow, they look like just what I'd need. Unfortunately a quick search shows nothing quite like that nearby. Guess its off to the body shop to see what they say. I'd prefer not to have to replace the entire bonnet.In the UK we have a company called 'Chipsaway', they are brilliant at fixing stuff like that and they are mobile so will come to you. Do you have similar in the US?
OUCH! I had a similar issue when my '10 Clubman was bruised in a parking lot. It cost $1500 to repair a silly little dent cause it went through the paint, the protective invisible bra and the chrome ring around the headlight. Because the bra had to be replaced I also had to have the stripes redone (although there was no damage to them).Anyone have any thoughts on clear protective film for the bonnet?
That seems steep for such a relatively small chip and damage, I had similar and got it done by the company donna mentioned, and was only about £300 and was an invisible repair and once done I couldn't see anything and I knew where it had been repaired. I would get a few more estimates before going ahead, good luck and I feel for you and your new car.Got my first repair estimate this morning. About $900. They would need to remove stripes, emblem, and scoop then sand and build out the dent, repaint and put new stripes on. A lot of work for a small chip that's probably only the first of more to come.
Another option was possibly paintless dent repair and then touch up. Much cheaper but would be more noticeable.
