Today when I was at school. I drove my car up to my pals in the courtyard and drove close to one of my classmates and then braked a metre or 3 from him. He then threw himself on top of my car resulting in two dents in my bonnets. I went to my dealer and got a quote for the damage repairs... £414. Pictures will come tomorrow of the damage.

So, have you guys gotten any damage to your dearest cars?

I don't want any friends like that !

Is he going to pay towards the repair ?

He's gonna have to, and he didn't sound reluctant either.
He was kinda surprised that I got pissed off.
Luckily he got an insurance, so that'll take care of it.

Also, this week, I discovered that I had also gotten a parking dent on my right rear quarterpanel (I think it's called..?)
Heck, not a good week for my poor little Up :(

How big are these dents? You can get an entire replacement bonnet on ebay for less than £100 (obviously fitting and spraying on top of that).

Hope it gets sorted, and that you recharge your 'mate' in full.

Lol, sorry, just saw you're Danish and so I'm guessing its krone. My bad!Edited by: Fidel_Castronaut

I, too, have observed that the metalwork of the bonnet appears to be rather thin when buffing the paintwork, after washing.

The roof feels even thinner than the bonnet when cleaning so was nervous when we had a hail storm a few weeks ago. No damage though!!
