Found out this morning that someone keyed my car in the last couple of days. Two panels on the right side are nicely dug into <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> I could have been random maliciousness, but you never know what can happen when you're in the middle of a nasty divorce <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/sly.gif" BORDER="0"> Anyway, I'll do a little compounding when I have a chance to see how much I can hide it. My understanding is that electric silver is very hard to match. Anyone have experience with repainting that color? What's the cost at lease end if I don't do anything with it?

That sucks. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Perhaps one of those fill in pens from the TV infomercials will do the trick. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">

I've not seen those. Would they really work on ClearCoat?

That sucks man. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>If you do fix it,you will have to repaint the entire side of the car to get it to match properly. Figure $1500-2000.<br>

Dunno what the lease co will charge.<br>If its a VFNA lease Wearcare should cover all or most of it.

Aw man - that $UCKS!!!<br>So sorry to hear it.<p>a good body shop should be able to match the color but panel panel will need to be painted & clear coated in order to match the finish so it will likely be a bit expensive.<p>If you leased through VCNA, they cover $1500 in damages through WearGuard.

Very sorry to here this.<p>Could you not put this thru insurance? If you have not had any claims recently they might give you a pass on the rate hike.

It is likely NOT to increase the rates.

I believe VFNA covers up to $1000 through the Wear Care as long as no one source of damage exceeds $500 (per panel?).<br>Being that his car is an '08 it probably was not leased through VFNA.

I don't know what VFNA would charge per panel. which is why there is a qualifier there.

I hate to file any claim at all if the cost is minor.
