Paintless dent removal will sort out the dent no bother for less than £100 (as long as the paint is not damaged)

Did a few on mine and it's not a Fiesta.

Yeah emergency key is in glovebox. Only works if the key is in its holder thing so best to keep the key out of the car. Bad thing is there's loads of windows being smashed on them to check the glovebox whether the key is in there or not.

Make sure you remove the emergency key cos loads of later Audis are getting pinched and broken into everywhere at the mo.

Already done it, but thanks.

Put my MX5 back on the road recently. Bought a cheap Volvo estate when the little one was born but loving this for when it's just me, had the alignment done and new tyres and it's made a huge difference, was miles out before.
Really can't beat a convertible when the sun is out.
