It's also one of the things that differentiates the new R32 from the GTI.This looks fantastic ........one of the main reasons I picked black was that in some colours the skirts and rear valance don't look good for a ?20k car. Why on earth VW don't do this as standard I don't know, as per usual cost I expect.
Not really sure about the process they used as my car was originally ordered as the dealership manager's demo until I talked them into letting me have it (long story) - on close inspection it looks as though the coding was done with the bits off the car as all the surfaces have been smoothed in places which would be difficult to reach, they did attempt to charge me an extra ?300 for the paint job but this was renegotiated  They used their own bodyshop so the ?300 quoted may relate to an inter-departmental cross charge rather than what they would actually charge the customer?!Hi Spin,
That is looking good. Did the bodyshop that did the spraying for you just paint the parts that where already on the car? How much did it cost? As I am looking to have something similar done to my Silver Gti when it arrives in November, except I am going to leave the recess around the exhaust unpainted.
