As a photographer, I can say it was not completely ethical for the body
shop to use your car in the ad without your permission, but it's not like
they sold the image of your car to someone else for a profit.  They are
just trying to display an appealing sample of their work.  This is your
chance to go back down to them and make friends.  Don't forget, your next
car will need paint also.  Maybe they'll cut you a deal next time.
