    Having a to-do with a local bodyshop. Had some rust on the sills with a section that needed filling.

    Issues outstanding are:

    Front of sill edges not well sanded, prepped and finished along with paint missing.

    Back of sill there's a ridge which needs flattening and painting.

    Back of sill clear coat not well finished and black mark on clear coat. Needs flattening.

    Front sill, filler wet so paint has raised. Needs taking back and redoing.

    Clear coat bubbles on the front of one sill.

    I've been back in twice, first time told the paint compressor has packed in and the second going to leave it with them for five days. Hopefully when I get back it's all sorted time told that they didn't have the right paint.

    I go on holiday next week so going

    Not sure what happened with the last post, it's gone a bit buggy. Anyway as I was saying, leaving it with them for 5 days whilst I'm away, going to be pretty pissed if it's still not sorted after that.

    Second time I went in they said that they didn't have the right paint. Arrived to find him colour testing different red paints on my car from different cars!

    lol indeed, at least it was some shade of red. I'm sure it will get there. The Mrs is telling me that I'm too much of a perfectionist

    I get that... then I get conned into painting the bedroom wall 4 times to get the right shade and have to get new bed clothes and lamp shades cause they now don't match the paint. But there's something wrong with us right?

    Haha, we're posh... we have the 5m remote cable. Although it has been tripped over about 30 times and the end is bent to 45 degrees.

    Hi guys, looking to get a MK2 cupra and wondered what sort of money the insurance for a stage 1/2 car is. Been quoted about £250 for a standard car as live in Devon and 40+. Any reccomended company's?

    Pretty much same boat, living in Somerset, 2011 Cupra R with stage 1 and wrapped black roof £430 if I remember correctly, was around £230 before the remap but I hadn’t told them about the wrapped roof.
