  • swirl marked new car

    bought the opel burg saturday the 19th of september detailed it on saturday the 26th and found quite a few swirls marks on it phoned around and the cheapest i can find to do remove them is £220 but thought why should i be paying this when it is a brand new car a workmate said he would ring the garage straight away so i did and the manager was out but is going to phone me tommorow do you think they should pay to get these corrected

    depends on dealers as they could say it was perfect when you bought it .
    this sounds a bit sad but try and take a video of them cleaning cars and make notes of there cleaning method ( 1 bucket , 1 yellow sponge and mucky water ) thats your proof as this cleaning method that most garages use is 100% guaranteed to cause swirls ,

    good luck and give em hell

      Yes i think they should and possibly will get them taken out for you.

      Its a bodyshop job really as the valetters at autovision are **** and the managers in there will tell you that!

          Stay on the case with them, there a good bunch but the boss is always very busy and sometime hard to get in...

          Im going in there about paint work on my astra tomorrow as well. I was in a year ago and never got a chance to go back and see them to have it booked in for inspection.

              TBH your car has probibly spent the best part of a year in a compound in ireland so its going to pick up these marks, ive seen it on cars before and your right to want it fixed man.
