I was parked downtown tonight and when I came back to my car, I noticed two rice sized black dots on my rear bumper. I thought it was dirty so I went to wipe it off, but my heart just dropped when I realized they weren’t coming off no matter how hard I wiped. Its raining and its dark, so I’ll take pictures tomorrow when’s there light out. So now I got to decide if I should either do my own body work ( Sand…touch up paint..Sand) or should I take it to a body shop and pay 100-200 to get the bumper painted or should I just claim it? What do you guys think I should do?

Sorry about your dings.

I'm starting to notice tiny chips and scratches from god knows what. My car is about 1 week old and I have detailed my car about 4 times so far!!! ahhaha talk about being paranoid.

But I think you should just leave it if its 2 rice size dings. You're going to get more, i already accepted that fact, especially living in NYC. Just cross your fingers, hope for the best, find good secluded parking and enjoy the whole of the car.

ow.... that sux neo. Yeah, most of the time I will let my "defense" loose too when I see the person parking beside me is TSX as well... but I guess a lot of TSX is driven by old people here...

hey, may be they love TSX too, but they can't recognize ur car b/c u are "honda". lol. Don't be surprise man. I went dinner with that SSM little girl one night. When we leave and went to parking lot, her mom point at my car and asked "_____ (name of her daughter), are u able to drive a car that is this big?" Of course her daughter says "mom, what are u talking about, it is the same car as I am driving". :rofl: :rofl:

Damn, that sucks.

That's where I got my first dent too.

If there's no paint scratching, you can try PDR - I did that for mine and it worked out great.

Thanks for the support guys, even though there not that big, you can still see the marks. It was really easy for me to spot because I washed my car yesterday and it was spotless and it was just weird to come back to black spots on the rear bumper after seeing it so clean.

Here are the pictures









There pretty deep marks..you can see under the paint. I donno if I should touch it up or should I pay to get it repainted..

you should atlease cover it up or somthing, so that way water dosen't get underneith or else if water dose get in, the expansionand contraction will make the paint buble and start chipping from that spot, so i'd cover it for now with some touch up paint, and put a protective coating on top

hmmm, honestly don't look like someone one "dinged" you or hit you (no scratches) - odd spots those dings - look more like rock chips, but in the back ????
You sure you didn't back into something ?
Those look very minor I'd just get the touch-up paint from dealer and do it myself and save the $ for "rainy days" I mean you can't guarrantee shit don't happen like you back into something or someone hit you in the back...
