I have just had the bonnet and front re-sprayed as I had one or two stone chips which annoy me as I like my cars to be perfect.
Just been to see the car at the bodyshop and its immaculate, however I have not yet had the bill. The paint shop said that the original (dupont I believe) ultimate silver is £1400 a bloody litre! Luckiiy they have sourced it elsewhere and should be a lot cheaper. I nearly fell over backwards. No cost option on the first 500 is not quite what it seems I think. I am losing the will to live with this car!
We should all be given a £5000 voucher from Nissan to ease the pain!
Now I definately need the paintshield

Did you not ask for the price of the repair before you gave them the work?! All body repairs should be negotiated and then negotiated again!

Cheers buddy. I am only going off what they said the initial price was from du pont. Once I have the bill I will indeed pm you if its more expensive than £500 and likewise if its cheaper than that.
cheers

I seen ultimate silvers with chips and they look impossible to touch up so the only way with them must be a clear wrap as soon as you get it.

Good news, front end done, bonnet done, one mirror done, A pillar done and small chip on rear quarter done £900.00 all in , paint was allegedly £197.00 litre and a top job. It now stays put until the ventureshield is fitted, but looks better than when I took delivery from the dealer. Also having it fully detailed and sealed.
Will post pictures once collected.:thumbsup:
