Two parts need respraying due to imperfections at bodyshop (Grrrr!) The finish is very good on other parts (currently residing in the lounge!) The colour match is spot on.

I want to fit this myself and have now found out how to remove bumpers (I don't want to use the brute-force method to remove current valances) and am looking into glues to fix the skirts and spoiler.

Warmer weather preferable!

Mine's all sprayed now, front & rear valances are in my lounge - Should fit them myself tomorrow.

Side skirts & spoiler are still in the bodyshop, leaving the car with them this Weds/Thurs to get fitted - Can't wait!

Nice one Steve, its gonna look awesome.

I'm very jealous, would have loved the anni kit, but missed out on the GB [B)]

Got mine delivered on the friday, dropped it off at the bodyshop the following Monday and picked her up that friday (a week ago now).

Lookes beautiful, im not regretting the hole it my pocket one bit.

My only grumble is that the kit came in one box which was really old and shoddy. It was too small for the skirts which were bent to make them fit. All of it was completely out of the original packaging and covered in dust and crap. The bodyshop later told me that it was a nightmare to fit as most of it was out of shape due to the handling/storage so getting a flush fit was a pain, and their time is my money [B)][!]

Also, they told me the bits had rubbed together or against something so some of it needed re-priming before it could be painted and fitted.

Overall this cost me i reckon an extra hundred quid which i wasnt too happy about.

I wouldnt normally mind as it was a really good price for the kit but when the GB specifically said 'These are all factory items and come complete primed ready for sparying and still in original VAG packaging.' - you can see why i am a little annoyed [V]

I hear you mate!!

Mine was similar. Bits COVERED in crap, one looked BLACK not primed it was that dirty! Mine was all chucked into an old Audi bumper box right size for the bits so no bending etc BUT the spoiler was damaged the end was snapped off, spoke to OEM who are or should that be were going to send a replacement but I haven't had it yet [B)]

I was VERY unimpressed with the packagin also for the same reason as you said?!?! To be fair it was NOT what we were sold and as you said probably ended up cost forum memebers more ?? on preparing it.

I know that a couple fo pieces of mine are chipped and I'l going to have to re-prime it etc before I take it to the shop...

Cheers

I thought OEMparts were a good outfit?

I'm still waiting for my R32 spoiler which I paid for on the 3rd. Going by another post about their R32 spoilers it will probably be an Anni one I get instead aswell. Not a happy bunny.

Cheers, Jim

When i got my anni kit from the dealers it only came in boxes with no padding or pieces to stop the parts moving inside the box. It is pretty poor considering the price of them.

Sorry to hear some of you are not happy with the kits... OEM mentioned to me that packaging might be a problem but I wasn't aware that some of the kits arrived in the condition they did.

OEM are looking to run another GB for the anni kits soon. If the problems we have seen are going to be an issue then they must be resolved before it can be run again.

Sorry to hear that you guys had problems with the kit, i think quite a few people will be abit wary about the next groupbuy!

sdesailly: all in good time - im waiting for the suspension to arrive from R1GTI, so it all depends on that really - It should look good when it all comes together, just a waiting game!
