Euro Delivery and minor body damage repair

After dropping off my car, I did the mandatory co-inspection with the drop off personnel. I noticed a few very small chips on the front which I am not at all surprised to see when running 100+ mph on the highways.

I know the VDC's have facilities to fix minor bodywork issues for cars that may have been "bruised" during shipment. I am curious to know if the VDC does any repairs on ED cars. It doesn't make a difference to me as I will correct as needed prior to plastic film application that I have on all my cars...

I have heard that they do fix these things at the VPC. However not certain.

Let a know what happens since I would need to make arrangements or chip repair otherwise.

Yes, I had a couple of wheels scratched during my trip and VPC fixed them. But, you have to let ur CM know so that VPC can be alerted...
