Hi all,


So I noticed a couple of marks today. One on the drivers door (looks like it was there when i got it) and two on the other side that appeared after the Supagard was applied at the a dealer




Both are down to the primer.



Does anyone have advice on how to touch up and finish off marks on a Solid red colour?



Should I go to a professional if the dealer denies to fix it?



All advice welcome!!




Thanks in advance!

Awww, mate! Feel for you bud.


This is exactly why I was determined to whisk my car away from the dealer ASAP, however, you should nail them for it!

Be sure to deal with the a general manager, - if they didn't do it, why would they carry on with the work without bringing it to your attention?

Not acceptable, they MUST sort it for you.Edited by: Senna

The red isn't metallic right? Pretty easy to touch up if that's the case, but you'll always notice it as you know it's there. Better than a respray though.

Yep it solid red paint.

The sales manager has said they will sort them out at their cost......

Dealers dont usually have paint specialist do they?

Quality of paintwork at dealers can vary wildly. I would perhaps ask them if you could get a local detailer that specialises in such repairs to have a look.

If they are small they might use 'Chips Away' or some other local specialist.

Really hope you get that sorted buddy.

Delaer has a paint specialist that comes in on thursdays. They are gongi to get him to do it then.

They are also going to fix my creeky dash faux carbon trim, the rattle under glove box and fit the proper red door handles!!

They have alos ordered me a chip stick for my colour and hopefully some oil of the correct grade....

Subaru UK confirmed to me this morning that you only want to use 0w-20 unless not available, so sounds like pushing Toyota was a good idea.

Mobil 1 do a 0W20 I believe and it meet the standards toyota spec in their manual...

It is, and apparently the proper Toyota oil is made by ExxonMobil anyway. At least in North America.
