Chip in paintwork

Post by Russ74 » Fri May 24, 2019 9:37 am

I've just descovered a big chip in the paintwork on the passenger door of my new xe, 19 plate less than 900 miles.
It's about a centimeters and down to the primer. I have no idea how it's happened, if someone ad opens their door on it hard enough to do that I would expect a dint. And doubt a stone chip would be that bad. Had a c class for 6 years and never had anything like that happen, probably just dumb luck but Is there anything I can do?

had exactly the same one mine on same door, from a Landrover owner not taking care, I have paintwork insurance, so had the chip repair people fix, I presume the door is strong enough in this area to not dent, I have a tiny ding on rear passenger door, which hasn't damaged paint but you can see ding in certain lights, and from certain angles.

Looks like it could be 'scrape' damage from a door edge. I don't think it would be warranty covered, so your local 'Chips Away' or similar is required.
