After buying it 6 weeks ago, I finally got my hands on it on the weekend... and been loving it so much that I forgot to put some pics up..what a car !

All I have done is wrap, tints, black wheels, gtr center caps, spacers & not forgetting the y-pipe !

Thanks Andy (as5606) for the y-pipe, car sounds like a F1 car now... and also for being so helpful and welcoming. I still have nightmares of sitting in your GTR though, its a monster ! If you are ever near Glasgow, you are more then welcome to give me call and I can show you around..

My only disappointment.......the wrap.
why did I not go to Robbie at Valet Magic !
The garage that wrapped the car happened to be near where I was getting the car from, so decided to go with them and pick up the car when it was all complete. I defo regret the wrap, even though the car looks amazing from a distance only I notice the areas where corners have been cut the areas that have been rushed. I might just have to make the trip to Robbie and get it de-wrapped and get him to make it all shiney with his special treatment...If he'll have me that is.
The colour is spot on, exactley what I was after... looks great in the sun (purple/blue/gold). My main concern is my trim, I feel it will never be in the same condition as it was when it came out of nissan. I feel like everything is loose ! He asked me to come back and he will correct all the faults, but its a 600 mile round trip..
There are loads of bubbles, wrap slightly pealing at places, bonnet scoops are just very poorley done, hes left my passenger mirror disconnected, parking sensors are not working now, also got it back with flat tyre lights on, bonnet impact light on, extra carbon bits that he put on under the registration, and below the fog light where I had not asked him to (I think he was covering up). Really really gutted, Robbie rescue me !

Anyway, pics below... I have it booked in to my local NHPC for a service and they said they will set a few thing right that they can without the wrap falling off. Thats 2k down the drain for the wrap....

Pics were taken on my phone, so dont really show the colour of the wrap..

















Sorry dont have any pics in the sun, but will get some up soon....
Litchfields as soon as the warranty runs out in oct ! unless NHPC get there act together in terms of this warranty...

Nice looking car mate.
Is that the actual size of the number plate or have you photoshopped it?

Unfortunately there are a lot of cowboy wrappers around.
It's an easy business to start and you are not quality checked in any way, shape or form. Then people with expensive cars pay you good money to get close and personal with thier pride and joy...

I used to do the same, you only have to have (I think it's now) 11mm round the digits. So for shorter private reg plates you can chop the plate down.

hi ameen.
cant understand why you dont take car back to the wrapper and ask him to remove it and a full refund if its that poor a job and your not happy with it. dont matter how far it is. 2 grand will get you almost a stage 2 at lichfields(+£700).
think i would have left the car there till he put it right or removed it.
it would just play on my mind that they had done a shite job and must have put a downer on you on what should have been a extra special day.
get ya money back mate then go see robbie.

Hi Ameen,

Good to meet you and glad you got home safely. I'm really sorry about your wrap. At least, as you say, it looks good from a little way away but it must bug you. Like I said, I wouldn't be binning £2k just like that. Write them a letter giving them 14 days to either sort it properly or remove and refund. Failing that, i'm sure robbie will help you with an experts report that shows the problems and you can use that to file a claim in the small claims court. That can include your expenses and getting down to robbie etc. You've got nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Glad you like your Y-Pipe. Sorry to have tempted you into a 650r conversion. You know it makes sense :chuckle:

If i'm in your area, i'll be sure to take up your offer of a meet up.

Enjoy it. She is looking fantastic :wavey:

Sorry to here about the bad wrap, Robbie did mine and it bears close inspection. Who is the company you used just so people can avoid them.

oh and tell us who is the company who wrapped it so no one else gets a bum deal mate.
AUTOTECNIXTINTING Window tinting specialists

He has asked me to bring it in on Sat to fix it, but I feel like: If you had a meal at a resturant and found maggots in it, would you tell the chef I dont like what you did cook it again for me?? He could do anything to your food behind your back?? lol. He has been responding to my calls and emails and said he would set it right, but I think my whole body trim is loose now, and also no parking sensors? no electrics on passenger mirror? There is also places where he has used like paint at corners? Im worried now that the trim underneath will need respraying?

I dont know if I should ask him to fix it or ask to put the car back to its original condition.. I want to take the car to Robbie, and just get a refund from this place.
Anyway, some pics of the wrap..... Robbie would have a heart attack if he saw this.....

Also my window seal on both sides are messed up, sounds like the passenger window is open ! when im on the motorway..they are cut !
