Recently bought a new car, and after getting it home I realised the dealer had taken a gouge out of the paint while taking off the protective plastic on the bumper bar trim see pictures. Its in an area that is hidden when the boot is shut.
It definitely wasn't there when I saw the car on the lot before I bought it, and I missed it in the pre-inspection. The dealer has offered to replace the whole bar but from what I've been reading online, it sounds like bars aren't sold in factory colours and would need to be resprayed.
TBH, I'm not confident in the dealer replacing the bar carefully enough given the electrics and reverse sensors would all need to be removed from the old bar and put on the new one. Everything else on the car is perfect, and I'm worried that I'd be replacing one minor defect for missing clips, bad alignment and dealer fitting vs factory.
Should I just get the chip repaired and argue they pay the bill instead of a replacement bar?
