Buying and Selling Question from Dimitry

Just two extra pics for 1768 Not sure if they uploaded properly for the first time Model: Toyota Corolla


it is difficult to advise you without the main facts. The main one is, what is the car worth in rough condition against clean condition.  Have a look at this guide and see if that will help you.  My suggestion is that if the car is otherwise immaculate and it has been serviced and well looked after.  Then probably better to get it done.  But if it has done a few extra miles and it has a few other scratches.  Then maybe price it bit lower.  I don't think it's likely a be a reason why somebody would and by the car.  So you may just want to touch it up and show the customer (touchup can be removed with a solvent later if necessary
.  If you're not happy with it). 
Just to give you an idea on cost, if you were to just deal with that scuff it would cost about £85 plus VAT and this would take just a morning or an afternoon.  If you were to take it for a Midi Repair and have the whole bumper a re-sprayed (this would take a few days).  Then somewhere between £175 and £200 plus VAT.  As a rough guide.
