    If you were going to have the usual front end stone-chip damage repaired on your Ferrari, who would you take it to, why them in particular and what would you expect to pay?

    I'd take it to Martin at MotoMarque in Chertsey, for front end up to Windscreen and rear bumper £1,500, front bumper only circa £350

    I took off my front bumper and took it round the corner in my village and a bloke did it for £400, it's a perfect match and excellent result, which just goes to prove you don't HAVE to take it to very expensive garages..

    the best way to prevent stonechips is to be at the front all the time only slow drivers get stone chips look at closeshaves if you want an example there is none on mine or andy h nitrous machine as we are front runners eh joe

    Ray would love to know how you managed to get that bird silhouette on your bonnet? That must have taken an age to work into the paintwork. . . .

    Rob icould tell that my mate let his pigeons out at a set time so i could get the bird superimposed in the picture on the bonnet ,but that would be bo---x

    The fact is i had not noticed it until you pointed it out good spot mate I bet if i tried for a month i could not do it again .looks good though

    Saw 2 different solutions to the stone-chip problem today in a pub car park in Kent. 1 Ferrari had a thin film of clear plastic across the bonnet, another Ferrari had a lot of red gaffer tape across its' front bumper. I wonder which is most effective?
