I ended up just cutting two lines into the plastic so the little “flap” could flex down just enough to let the parking sensor clip in. Seems to have worked fine since then although the spray paint has begun to chip off the brackets.
Out of curiosity what dealer is it that’s trying to pass that off as standard?
If they’re lying about something so painfully obvious I wouldn’t trust a single thing they’ve said. Especially on a car now out of its standard warranty.
I paid £480 for the Front bumper, door handles, window trim, rear bumper and diffuser. They said they could have a go at doing the grille for £70 but it would probably peel off as it’s quite intricate. In the end I just bought a genuine black edition S5 grille.
Another place quoted £440+Vat...
Yeah I was amazed too, got the notification at 4:30pm is had been sent and at 8:40am the next day the postman arrived.
I managed to fit it last night and I’m honestly blown away by the difference. I didn’t think the change would be as noticeable as it is
I created one just to message him initially but then he replied by email.
I can drop him a message if you like and ask if he’s happy with me private messaging people his email?
(I’m planning on creating another thread once I’ve done it as a bit of a guide/review as I don’t want to take over...
What kind of driving are you doing? My average MPG is 24, my tyres lasted about 8k miles and when I went for a service a few months ago at 21k they told me my disks needed replacing soon.
Other than that I completely agree with everything you’ve said about the car
Personally I take that as if you got it done, then had a crash they wouldn’t cover the replacement cost.
I’m no expert, but if it was something that would invalidate your policy I don’t think they would be so vague about it.
By them saying they wouldn’t cover it does that mean they won’t cover the replacing the dechrome in the event of an accident or they wouldn’t cover you at all?
Dechroming the window surrounds is essentially putting a sticker over them so I don’t get the logic of hiking the price up. People...
