Is it time to return your leased vehicle? As the lease return inspection approaches, many of us start noticing those dents, door dings, scratches, scuffs and paint, wheel and bumper damages we ignored before. It’s called wear and tear. That’s ok, you don’t have to stress, though your last lease return experience may have been unpleasant.
Lease return inspector use selective rules which determine if you will be charged for dings, dents, scratches and other vehicle damage. Those rules depend on the make of your car. Usually German automakers and higher-end cars such as Lexus, Mercedes Benz, BMW, Audi, Land Rover, Bentley, Porsche, Maserati, Acura, Infinity are harder to deal with because they charge for anything bigger than a minor ding and even charge for some door dings. On the other hand, auto companies such as Saab, Ford, Chevy may let you go with scratch longer then four inches and dent bigger then three inches.
So what are you to do? It could be painful situation because you know you could get charged hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars in inflated dealer repair costs on a car that you will not even own. We know the feeling. We see it in the eyes of many of our customers.

Today many bumpers have moldings, back up sensors and other plastic components. For quality results, bumpers and their components need to be removed from vehicles, disassembled and painted separately.

Key - Scratch repair is very common and unpleasant damage. In most cases the scratch will need to be repainted. Based on location of the scratch on the panel and the color we can offer complete panel repaint or partial repaint, known as “spot painting”. In most cases when the body panel is damaged (for example the front fender, door or quarter panel) we will have to repaint the complete panel.
Without sacrificing quality, we provide fast, convenient and professional service. Our experienced technicians repair scratch by sanding the existing paint down, then applying new primer to the damaged area. Then we paint and blend as necessary blend to color match the panels existing finish. The last stage of painting is to apply a new clear coat covering the whole panel so the job is completed perfectly. Everything from minor scratch repair to large key scratches from side to side our skilled techs will restore your paint to like-new condition. Skill is only one component to the perfect repair. The other is the use of quality paint and materials. We use high quality German paint products top-rated in the automotive industry.

Our headlight restoration safely renew your light to fix illumination photometry and optical qualities to ugly, hazy, cloudy, plastic headlights no matter the extent of the damage to the headlight from outside.
Most plastic headlights are manufactured with polycarbonate plastic for its tensile strength but it is a very porous plastic, so the manufacturers apply a protective film to the headlight lens. It is very common that intense sunlight, heat and humidity combined with the heat of the halogen bulb delaminates the protective film leaving the lens exposed to the elements and badly in need of headlight restoration. Polycarbonate has its advantages but also has its disadvantages—namely oxidation / discoloration. To the naked eye one cannot tell that these plastic lenses are actually a porous material that expands ever so slightly when it gets hot. Over time the lens will develop a cloudy, hazy, discolored appearance and this will diminish the headlights ability to project its beam of light at night and during adverse weather conditions. Who would want their family in a vehicle with this dangerous problem?
The surface of the damaged plastic needs to be removed to restore clarity, illumination, photometry and optical qualities to the headlight lens then resurfaced for long-lasting protection and a like new appearance. Let our technician restore your headlight and have it clear and shiny light again.
You will admire new look and appreciate it’s visibility at night.
Did you know that an annoying little rock chip on your windshield could easily turn into a long crack that may require replacement of the entire windshield? It's true! If the windshield chip damage is not fixed right away temperature variations, road vibration and even normal driving conditions can go to work on that damage and eventually, it will create a crack that spreads across the full windshield.
Most rock chips and nicks can be filled in and repaired thus stopping the spreading process and saving your windshield! Windshield repair is safe, effective, convenient, and takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Our specialists can repair chips, surface nicks, combinations, bull’s-eyes, beeswings, flower breaks, pressure ring, and half moons. A quality windshield repair will restore the structural integrity of the windshield, help prevent the damage from spreading, and make the blemish much less noticeable, without the extremely costly expense of removing and replacing the glass.
Car Cosmetics windshield repair believes that this process is convenient, because it does not affect the integrity of the original factory seal since the glass is never removed. With the rising price of modern automotive glass and the high rate of faulty installations, it's a great alternative!
In addition to the dollar savings, another fantastic benefit of repairing and not replacing all those windshields is the green effect. Windshield repair is good for the environment.
Why? Because windshields are not recyclable.
Every repaired windshield means less in our landfills, and fewer resources used. Now don't you think that’s good for all of us? We sure do.
