Well I too had a small accident with my swift few days back. A jerk tried to overtake on his bike from left when I was trying to park the car. Could not see him because of huge C pillar in swift.

He rammed into the rear door and left a small S shaped dent on the door. Maruti service center is quoting 3.5 k for the repain of rear door. They say that they can match the paint. My car is Silver.

I dont know whether they will be able to match the paint. If not it will look very bad.

Any idea on repainting of one door. does it match the car pain?

All MASS should be able to match the paint.
If in case u find a huge difference in color then u should not accept the car from them.

Silky Silver computerised matching is not difficult for Swift. So dont worry. The repaint shuld be O.K.
