One of the things I love about this forum is the fact that, most times, when someone's comment is misunderstood, it is quickly corrected and all is right again!! :D

One of the reasons my house has CCTV and the car has covert cameras inside!
You can buy a version of the dashcams for Taxi use that has front/rear and an internal.
Touch a button and it takes a snapshot too.
Also you can put it in 'parking mode" where it will cover your vehicle for exactly this sort of thing.
Quite a few vids around where they have driven off but their plate is in full view and they've been prosecuted.

You may find it was an old person that had no idea they had done it though as well, seen that quite often with the oldies!!

If it's any consolation, when a woman reversed into my old 120d, BMW did an amazing job taking the bumper off, fixing it and spraying it all up to perfectly match the car and it was about £480, which is annoying as its not your fault, but is managable.


A good independent body shop (who BMW probably farmed the work out to) would do this for £200 max...

A good job is a good job, but no need to pay that much for one panel!!!!


It was all done through her insurance so didn't cost me anything, but even if I could have got it cheaper I would prefer BMW to do it that price to me was fine.

Ironically, and not sure if it was just coincidence, but just after they did it I got the rear PDC/water Christmas tree light thing and found the PDC unit flooded. BMW agreed that it might have been the bumper fix that caused it so they paid for a new PDC unit fitted. Imagine if the same had happened at a none BMW paint shop, I doubt they would do it FOC.

But yes, I'm sure if you want the extra work finding a bodyshop you might be able to get it done cheaper, surely shopping around is a given and I don't need to teach people to suck eggs!! :lol:

I'd also recommend autoscratch.co.uk

They once did something similar on one of my cars and it was as new.
