Hi! Welcome to yet another Milano Red CTR owner. Without doubt red is the most popular colour for the R.
Hope you are enjoying the car
As someone who works in a bodyshop what do you think about the paintwork on your car?

paint

Its a bit flimsy on the door edge's. Parked mine next to a caravan. door just touched the caravan paint chipped off. There are also a couple of dirt inclusions on the car as well. I would not let a customer have a car back from us with these dirt inclusions in the paint.

I think black seems to have its problems too. Stone chips really show up due to the white undercoat underneath. But hey i don't have too many after 8000 totally enjoyable miles.
As for the colour well it has to be black. Its the only colour for me and suits my rebellious side

What I will do when I get back to work on monday I will check the thickness of the paint round the car and post my results. color should not make any differance its all about the clear coat over the top of the paint..thats what stops the damage

I just ordered this Supaguard for mine when I pick it up in december... what do people think to it? Does it stop chips a little better or is it just a permanent rainex type thingy?

i would cancel that if i was you mate

supagard kit, Cars, Parts Vehicles, Cleaning, Waxing Valeting, All Manufacturers items at low prices on eBay.co.uk

apply it yourself IMO

anything over 60 quid applied is daylight robbery from them

Bugger. I think its too late to cancel cos I ordered it a few weeks ago and the car's in stock now. The only reason I havent picked it up is cos I am overseas at the minute Well, ill know for next time. ****** was trying to get 300 out of me too!

They probably will not apply it until they prepare the car for collection. Give them a ring, they can only say no.

make sure you get mats, keyrings and anything else you can thrown in on the day of collection lol

They said they will throw it in for me for free - trying to say i am getting a 300 extra for free - when i just asked for 300 off the price of the car instead, they would not budge - basically admitting how much of a scam this stuff is.

Yeah, was kinda hesitant when they mentioned about it. Ill see what they say, although I agreed the price through a broker though. Having said that, im not paying until colletion so if they havent, I dont suppose they can argue it. Tried the mats and fuel one with the dealer who im picking it up from but they said cos I did the deal with the broker they cant change any of it. Might be tempted to ring up the broker and say come on - where's all my free stuff

They probably get their supagard kits off ebay lol!

see how much the supagard is really worth by asking for free mats etc in place of the 150 saving.

I think the Supagard is ok especially on the interior but its definitely not worth 150 and certainly not 300

I'm not sure how it works through a broker but is the car brand new, as a full tank of fuel should be provided by the dealer mate - it is included in the OTR price.
