    I've really badly damaged my car going around a corner and scratching my car with another dudes bumper. How much do you guys think it would cost? I haven't got a quote yet but want to check with others first before they start overpricing me.

    Is it a 3 or 5 door? If it's a 5 door, two doors = £200 each second hand.

    You know posting the same thread twice is spamming, right?

    If you know a decent body shop this is around £200

    £200 - £500

    If you've not got a lot of cash buy yourself a bottle of Original T Cut (red bottle) and two packs of yellow dusters.You'll buff most of that out.

    Depends on the age of the car and the rarity of the colour. I've bought doors in scrap yards and on eBay ranging from £20 (common door) to £50 (rarer shape door). If you can find doors easily in the correct colour then it's by far the easiest option. Even if the options are wrong you can pretty easily swap things like central locking and electric windows over between doors.
