    Hi guys

    Not been on here for ages so good to look though threads for a catch up!
    Just wondering if anyone up here has had paint damage in the door shuts, caused by the hard plastic part of the door seals. We've had damage which I've touched up with chipex a few times but it keeps rubbing off and is now through the primer. A check online shows this to be a common problem which Mini are aware of.

    Not what you'd expect on a 2020 Mini. I understand dealers are rectifying the paint then fitting a protective film. I'll be contacting my local dealer (JC Tayside) tomorrow so would be good to know if anyone has had the fix done by them?

    Cheers

    As you've mentioned it's a pretty common issue and fix. I wouldn't think there should be any issues.

    It’s a fairly common issue. Most dealers are sorting it without much issue. I’ve fitted PPF To the door shuts on our cars to prevent the rubbing and so far seems to be doing the job.

    Thanks both. I'm not anticipating any problems but these days dealers seem to want to do the bare minimum. Its more the hassle tbh, as we're an hour away from dealer so I'm hoping to get it booked in on showing photos only - none of this "we need to see the car first" nonsense, then book it in. It due its first service in Feb/March so might be easier leaving it until then. Cheers

    I literally just got mine done by the dealer a couple of months ago (1 month left on the warranty too). They did just take pictures and send to Mini. Had it booked in with them for a week to sand it down and repaint. They even put some ppf on as standard which was surprising. Hopefully should be pain free for you.
