Hi all

I am sad to report that my 1999 Boxster (which I have owned since 2015) has been pretty comprehensively keyed down the offside.

Someone has run something sharp from the rear offside quarter, the offside door, door handle, offside front quarter and fuel filler door. Presumably they have covered so many parts/ panels in order to make it as difficult and expensive as possible to repair. (I have attached 3 photos).

I am insured with Churchill on a market value basis (unfortunately), I have a £600 excess and protected no claims.

Can anyone recommend a bodyshop that could repair this nicely please? Could you suggest a likely price (ballpark figure)? I live in Brighton.

(I am somewhat worried that a 'proper job' may make the car an insurance write-off and Churchill would only give me a low value for the car. Which would be a shame because it's otherwise in good condition and only has 59k mileage.)

Any other wisdom would be gratefully received! (Other than 'Don't park your car on the street in Brighton!')!

Many thanks

Simon

Hi Simon .
That is truly heartbreaking, I wonder if a Smart Repair type of outfit may be able to repair the damage , they could at least give you a quote ? Someone like ChipsAway or similar .
Good luck , I hope you get her sorted ASAP .

You just can’t use the words in a public space for these type of folks, I would contact Chips Away or Revive, the later did a good job for a couple of scratches on the Mrs A5 cab
