Hi

Washing the car today and noticed a small chip!!! :-(

What's best to do? The $tealets or an independent??

Devastated any recommendations round the Newcastle area?

Newcastle on Tyne or Newcaste Under-Lyme, because if its its Newcaste Under-Lyme, the Stoke-on-Trent chips away franchise is fantastic!

I have used Chips Away and they do a good job,infact a lot of their work is from dealers ,so its likely if you took it to a dealer they would sub it out to them.

Not all Chips away are the same as it's a franchise. I used them and they oversprayed my bonnet when painting the bumper. But this was in the east yorkshire area. Cant you do the chip yourself. MER do a chip kit and I've used it with great results ,it just takes a bit of time.

Newcastle upon Tyne

Used chips away for a small scratch a few years back

It's quite bad as you can see the white underneath, it's about 1/4 size of a 5p

Might give them a call and get a price

Buy a touch up pen from Audi and dab some on in several layers then wait till you have a few chips and then do Chocks-Away (other smart repair companies are available). If I did a smart repair everytime I had a big stone chip I'd be there every week having work done. You could invest in paint protection film ( Venture shield) and this will help in the fight against the dreaded chip it's not cheap however.
