Re: Scenic new bumper, am i being too picky?

Hi there and welcome.

I'd be willing to bet the fitment wasn't that dissimilar - it's just now that you're focusing on it, and it's drawing your attention.

I would try to look at it with fresh eyes, and ask myself if any prospective buyer (who didn't know about the collision) would be able to spot it? I doubt if they would.

If you feel the bumper/wheelarch edge is 'out', then I'd fit this; and concentrate on enjoying life, rather than having a fight with a garage. The paint match & finish is great, so in that regard - it's a 100% job.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
