the part nearest the Clear Corners does look deep (got past the clearcoat & scratched the actual paint). looks like you'll need to go to a paint shop & get it blended in thumbsdown

you can always hope, though, that it didnt get past the clear coat (which i still think it did) and get someone to try & buff it to see how deep it really is.

best of luck bro...i hate ignorant people.

true that. we're #1 in baseball right now. and don't forget we won the national championship (haha well we split with usc..but i don't see them with a crystal football trophy) wer were also ranked in bball until our star got hurt so now all we really have are freshmen playing.

Difficult to see where on the car the scratch actually is. The pictures so damn big. Whats that mess in the top left of the picture???

No chance of polishing out that scratch. Looks really nasty. I'd take it to the dealer and get them sort it, It'll cost more but you know the job will be done properly with the correct type of paint. Should cost more than 150 though.

As for the bike they've painted on there, I don't know what to suggest. Its a pretty good effort! rofl rofl

Ouch... that sucks. thumbsdown The best thing to do is to have it repainted. But, that can be expensive because it needs to be blended, so part of the Hood may need to be painted as well. Depends on your deductable, you can claim vandalism with your insurance company. If that's too much hassle, then use touch up paint.
