Re: advice on painting on new trafic

Personally I would think that you could repair and paint that panel alone as there is a line/gap around it to hide any slight colour differences.Theres no reason why it should go to a Renault bodyshop either,any insurance approved repairer can repair it and it won't effect the anti-corrosion warranty.Many dealers farm out there repairs to independant repairers anyway.

Having said that,as you're not paying for it I'd go for the full works on it!.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
