RE:NON FUNCTION ABS

THE MISSUS TOOK THE CAR INTO THE LOCAL DEALER TO BE ASSESSED ON SATURDAY AND WE GOT THEIR FAX ESTIMATE THIS MORNING 1700:00+VAT.
GENERALLY,A PRETTY FAIR ESTIMATE FOR A FRONT ENDER.ONLY LOOKING AT THE FRONT OF OUR BABY YOU WOULD THINK THAT BY REPLACING THE SPOILER,(ONE)HEADLAMP+FOG LAMP,THE GRILLE AND REPAIRING THE CREASE ON THE LIP OF THE BONNET(WHICH IS BARELY VISIBLE)THAT SHE WOULD BE GOOD AS NEW!!. NOT.
IT SEEMS THAT THE DEALER WILL NOT REPAIR THE DAMAGED BONNET BUT REPLACE IT ALONG WITH SPOILER,HEADLAMP,FOGLAMP+GRILLE.BONNET+GRILLE+SPOI LER OBVIOUSLY NEED TO BE REPAINTED,BUT OUR ESTIMATE INFORMS US THAT THE FRONT WINGS NEED TO BE PAINTED ALSO (THERE WAS NO DAMAGE TO EITHER OF THE FRONT WINGS!).
CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF IT IS NOW GARAGE POLICY TO REPLACE RATHER THAN REPAIR DAMAGED PANELS AND TO RE-PAINT COMPLETELY UNDAMAGED PANELS?.

P.S THE PAINT FINISH IS METALLIC IF THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

P.P.S YES WE ARE ABSOLUTELY GUTTED AS THE CAR IS A MY98 JUST AT ITS FIRST SERVICE DATE.

dear tc,
in order to match up the bonnet paint with the rest of the car your dealer will "flash" paint over the wings so as to give a better match with the rest of the car. hope this clears the question up!
