    I've told my dad now, I was reeeally upset cz I thought he was gonna screw but he saw how sad I was and he patted me on the back and said don't worry lol
    But thanx for all the advice, I'll probably take it to Halfords cz it's cheaper.

    And btw, what does "OP" mean??

    I know i'm probably late, but most of that can come off with polish/scratch remover and a lot of rubbing.

    If its not dented then cheaper....i reversed into a wall and have a scrape along my Ka's bumper. My stepdad sanded it down etc ( its fibreglass), primed it, painted it etc and glossed it looks better than before!..paint cost £15 from Ford garage. Lots of effort though. Just tell them. Be annoyed for a while but you're not dead!

    It's always dead cheap if you do it yourself... A friend of mine resprayed his car (he works at a garage and they let him use the spray booth after-hours for free) and it cost him about £200 in materials and that was it...
