Who cares if it takes 4 pages, had we known what the actual scratch/nick looked like, we probably could of helped faster.

I doubt it since several pages were devoted to ignoring my request and telling me to whine to the dealer. As I said before, it doesn't matter now.

I "whined" to the dealer NINE times in two and a half years to fix s*!* that was busted on my focus from the day I got it. I've had to switch dealers because they don't do the work right. It's part of buying a car. Hell, 2 and a half years later, my car STILL has issues it's had since new!

You paid good money for your car, why shouldn't it be perfect? (Unless you're like me and plan to probably race the crap out of it).

Why is it so hard to understand that whether or not the car dealer should fix it has no bearing on the actual question I asked? There is absolutely no reason to spend multiple pages restating the same thing and still not providing the answer to a simple question. I didn't ask whether I should fix it myself or go to the dealer again; I asked how to fix it myself. Had I simply stated that I had caused the scuff myself I'm sure the answer I sought would have been provided much, much earlier. In other words, there is literally no reason for this to even be a discussion!

The advice could have easily been provided while still telling me to go to the dealer. The same thing would have been accomplished in less than a page (and in less than a day), that instead took 4 pages and a couple of weeks, and your opinions would still have been made clear. Repeatedly I tried to get back to the root of the question only to have the thread derailed with a useless, unhelpful comment (I'm not pointing fingers at anyone in particular in this sentence). That is why I mentioned the difficult "welcome" I received here. There is no reason to make asking a simple question like pulling teeth.

As we said from the get-go, we needed pictures to give you an accurate way to fix it. We didn't mean to give you a "difficult welcome"..but i guess this is where our opinions differ. We think you should have the dealer do it (they do have the proper equipment), but if you want to then so be it.
