  • crack mirrors, done under warranty..

    had my cracked mirrors done under warranty today, not replaced though, painted, they look good but the whole front end of the car is covered in overspray

    like all over! going back in the morning.

    how is overspray removed? does in need cutting back with rotary?

        That sounds really bad fella, especially when they clip off - I assume you mean the coloured panels >???

                Would ask that once paint is repaired that you get some good will gesture (such as free service) that is if you intend taking the car back after the paint is sorted. Eitherways it is poor customer service and poor care of your pride and joy. Ought there be a thread to name and shame the poor dealers along with one to show the good ones (that way we will all know who to go to and who to avoid)?

                        demand a professional detail to remove overspray, and they can pick uip the bill! But iv heard clay can remove overspray if they try to dodge out of it. Give vxrmarc a pm or visit detailing world theres loads of advice on it!

                            i do a bit myself too, but i have had it detailed before, its with the dealer now, if i'm not happy i've already planned to do what you said

                              OMG!!! how crap are some Vauxhall dealers, that sounds unbeleivable!!! I had some warranty work done on mine last week and they've scratched just above the wheel arch, quite badly and chipped one of my diamond cut alloys!!
