Just picked up Das Fast and I am so emotional...


So Happy Yet Sad that I can't take it back home to Canada.

The spot on the hood came out no problem with a good buff.

First Happy ;D

But also sad because the car is full of Swirl Marks and scuffs...I don't know what they did to it... :'(

And also angry cause I want someone to pay!! >:D

[help]

What should I do here? Take it back to the dealer and demand that they fix it or set out to buff and polish it to get rid of the swirlies. I don't want them to mess it up more... :'(

thoughts?

Pics will be up in 30 mins or so.. :-\
take it back to the dealer. :-\ ask them to fix it, pay for a proffesional detailing (not their house apes with a buffing machine) or new paint.

Can't tell anything from the pictures. But I would say the longer you wait to take it in, the harder it will be to make your case. The swirl patterns are pretty typical as the preps all seem to use buffers, but like I said, I can't see the other with any detail.

Take it in.

Literally it's like a blob that's fading....

I took it in today and even the sales guy was like "What the..."

he's gonna call me back with a better time to come to get their "paint guy" to have look and see what he can do.

There was also a scruff mark that he attributed to the white cover/stickers that are on int he new car, he said that comes out with a buff.

As for the swirl mark, I can get that out with a good wax and polish, right? No power buffer based on what I have read on this forum, simply bicep power.
