Car got keyed
 
So the car got keyed sometime last night. Sad discovery this morning.

The last thread I found was from 2 years ago, is there any changes to the recommended body shops to have it quoted and assessed. Melbourne South East side. Any idea on cost?

I'll just leave a pic here.

Oh those ****ing haters will die!

Rest assure their arses will rot in hell in time to come because I cannot stand this type of behaviour done to someones property. I don't think you can get away without respraying the panels, the scratch looks very deep, once you can see the primer colour underneath there's no option but to repaint the whole panel. It always baffles me that someone can be that full of hate generally :mad:

Best to head off to some e46fanatic recommended repair shop rather than to self diagnose on here. Let them have a close inspection and advise you accordingly.

Have a feel with your finger nail to assess how deep the key scratch is :mad:

Ouch

Sorry to see this. Nothing good can come to someone who does this. Wish they someday feel your pain. If you're going through insurance then take it to Charlie Battistie in Nunawading. They are one of 4 BMW recommended shops and have had excellent service from them.

JoeyLovesM3 03-03-2013 03:54 AM

Karma will come back around to them. I don't see why or how people do these things to beautiful cars...

Chum 03-03-2013 03:57 AM

Had the same thing happen to me.

Requires a respray for sure unfortunately.

Whereabouts were you parked?

dan_1337 03-03-2013 06:40 AM

Sorry to hear. Have a look at these threads for some ideas too:

Many other similar ones around if you do a search on scratch repairs.

I was waiting for somebody to say that! :clap:

Nah thats not buffing out. Its down to primer on the whole scratch, with areas down to the bare panel underneath. :eek: The start of the scratch on the rear quarter looks like it might buff out, otherwise ouch, 3 panels ...

Only times it was parked after dark last night, At a picnic park at Venus Bay, A servo at Caldermeade, Kew for 20min, then home on the drive way. I have a suspicion it was at the park in Venus Bay, was there till just after nighfall, and there is a parallel line of dust next to the key mark. Ie oil deposited, then gathered dust on the course of the way home.

Ah well .. Thanks Jarryd, I will bring it to a few shops and have them assess it and see how much it will cost.

Rob32R 03-03-2013 09:51 AM

Good luck with the repairs dude I know it sucks. Please let us all know how you go with the insurance assesors.

N4NOOK 03-04-2013 11:25 PM

There are 2 BMW accredited body shops in Moorabbin.

Had mine resprayed my car last year after some oxygen thief took a key to every panel.

Mr Gloss (LOL) and Superfinish.

:censored:

Car was egged late one night driving home... little bastard ran off into the bushes. I called the cops and they basically said that they can't do anything about it. Went straight to carlovers and washed it off - almost no damage at all luckily.

Good luck with getting it fixed.
