I bought this car 4 years ago Saturday, it got me through college as it was a big, reliable car, exactly what I needed. More and more things are needing attention, becoming issues, wearing out, etc.. and Thursday I'm taking delivery on my '06 DSG GTI,
And thanks to my father, I will be missing the Bonne even less!
My Car...The 1 year old front fender, still doesn't have spider webs yet, and plenty of orange peel, but the metal mounts are definetly bowed in.
The Sol'* fender is metal, the bumper is plastic. Good thing it'* not a unibody car..
After some compounds, and the guy @ Crystal Lake Automotive spending 5-10 minutes with a few body spoons and forks (for free I might add) the door doesn't rub on the lower fender trim panel anymore.
Car is being traded in thursday for $1k, big question now, is do I tell them? The trade in value based on KBB is for a car in excellent condition, which I didn't consider it to be in before this mishap. This age and/or mileage, It'* going straight to a wholesaler/auction anyways.
My dad is going to get a bottle of touch-up paint for the fender tomorrow since the only one his dealer could locate is near his office.
