You can go to autobacs, they have touch up paint. Better to know ur color code then enquire before going. I had two stone chips .. got some decal from wrapstyle.. or you can go to the paintshop

Thank you all for any suggestion.

I also got similar dent with some white paint at front left wheel fender. Judging from the height, should be either van or lorry. May I know where you got the quotation of $100?

From my experience, best solution is to use some "sports performance decal" to cover it up. Cheap n easily replaceable if you don't like it. Touch up paint may end up looking worse or more obvious if you don't apply it like an artist. Respray is a total waste of money - ask yourself how many times are you prepared to respray again if some other tiny dents appear in future?

You may not believe it but 3-6 months later, your brain will not even care to notice the dent any longer. Unless of course you're a hardcore OCD person.

Ouch.. sorry to see that. I just had a very similar experience on a 4 months old car. Had to respray my whole rear bumper. Hit and run in carpark.

 

Anyway, looks to be rear quarter panel and down to bare metal. 2nd pic seems to show a slight dent. Bare metal will rust if left exposed, it's only a matter of time..

 

Depending on age of car, either cover with decal, live with it and move on, or PDR (for the dent, I prefer this to body filler) respray and move on. Make a decision and put the whole incident behind you [nod]

I used a lot of bullet-holes stickers. My car looks like kena sprayed by mafia tommy guns. One guy at car wash got a shock before he wash then he looked at me and started laughing.

TS,if i am nt wrong you are driving a pacific blue VW.

 

You can go to VCS to buy the OEM touch up pencil (base coat + clear coat) for 33 SGD. i have tried it myself, the quality is not bad

 

I wont recommend touch up paint by autobacs or NTUC end up u also paying close to 30 sgd. 

 

if you are a perfectionist, go and repaint the whole panel  with those body works garage.

Bro, use marker and touch up and let it go ! let it go !!!

 

Cos in future sure may have such dents appearing, even you dont park next to lorry, after you park, the car next to your lot leaves and along comes a lorry / van.

 

If you free, after you park, you look at other cars front left fender on top, sure got many such dents... zzzzz

knn why cant some drivers (regardless of lorry, van or passenger car) be more careful when opening their doors. just kena one paint circular paint chip off from one stupid driver. if capture the car plate, anything we can do to get compensation from the driver? but somehow the video might not be convincing enough because it did not show the “impact” of the door opening.
