Stupidly scraped and dented rear door on a lampost. It's 8 years old but only 50,000km on the clock. What's the downside in only going the repair route? I bought the car from family earlier this year. I always had a company car but since 2008 I've had no car. Despite never having an accident in my 25 years of driving around the country as a rep, the insurance company said that the insurance cost would come down once I had a track record with them for a while. So I don't want to put the fixing of the current problem through a claim. To me that means the best option is to have the door repaired and repainted. Any thoughts?
