    Default re-sale inquiry, need your opinion

    well, guys, my Cultus (07 VXRi) got hit last week and got a dent on the bonnet (which is a 2 x 2 inches dent, i.e. a small one) just above the Suzuki monogram on the front grill, though i got the dent repaired, but it needs to be re-painted again...

    now my question is, if i get it re-painted will that decrease the re-sale value of the car? (as i am expecting to sell it by the mid of next year) . as my Dad says leave it as is or put some sticker on it, but every time i see that dent my heart goes , but then again, since i am a middle class man, i have to worry about the thing called re-sale...

    so please suggest that how much re-painting the dent on bonnet will decrease the re-sale value of cultus, or i should leave it as is or put a sticker on it ????????

    Well that depends on how severe was the dent. Did the repair cause any bonnet seals to pop? If not, then leave it as it is as by repainting, you'll give the buyer doubts on how severe the damage was before repairing.

    For your own satisfaction, you can get an aftermarket bonnet and paint it as you may please (matte black looks good, carbon fiber sheet maybe?) and keep the original bonnet as it is and mount it when you plan to sell it.

    the repaint area of the car create doubts to the people while inspect. also there will be the different views of the customers about car...so if the dent is in small size & colour looks ok then leave it...dont repaint...
