    if possible don't put any sticker on the body. Individual tastes do matter, of course. The problem is after you put stickers on the body, if you peel it off after sometime, you would see color difference. The stickered area will have the original color, while the rest will be slightly faded.

    that i am afraid again is a wrong practice. as fiatlover mentioned, always engage 1st gear while parking on climb and reverse while on slope :) don't rely solely on handbrake. you will find this also in the manual on reading further

    get the stickers done when you feel you want it.
    Even if your car is 10 years old and you go in for a sticker job and leave the stickers for 2 years and then peel it off you will still find difference . Dont bother too much if you like getting stickers

    Guys, a dissapointing experience in the morning. Some f***ng a** truck guy tried to over took me from left side at the junction of entering Nice road from Kanakpura road. I was slowly taking left and came to left, did not see this sick bastard came left of me. A slight scratch happened. Its not glaringly visible from when looked closer it is evident.

    Since then i am fully disturbed. Do not know what to do or change my mind :( I hate that a*****....

    Attaching the pic.

    it looks like a very small issue what you could do is to pick up some rubbing compound and try wiping it chances are it will be completely masked.
    otherwise you can get it painted obviously but that's just too inconspicuous to do anything if you ask me

    @Zen,dont worry buddy..it's just a small which is not visible clearly..and as old men's say it's like a nazar tod to your car..if you want to get rid of this then as @the black said get it erased by rubbing compound or get it painted..

    Guess this is what your talking about?

    @Nadeem
    The pic was taken in a basement which is not well lit place. If its in open air, then its much visible :( It was no mistake of mine and being very careful and slow, people are sick :(

    Zen - It happens. Someone put a foot long scratch on my rear RHS door, when the car was parked in the basement of a shopping mall. Looking at the location of the scratch, appears to be from a shopping trolley.

    Post a picture in brighter light, so we can see the actual damage and give you appropriate suggestions. From the picture you have posted now, I would say ignore it :D

    @Rajan,
    That is too bad. Why people are not careful. Really bugs me up :A
    Yea ill post the pic in evening, now its parked @office. But as sham said, it should be gone by a rubbing compound. Confused to go for Formula 1 or 3M.
