I have nothing but praise for the tuition I received from Kelly - without a doubt the most informative tuition I've received and best money I've spent in a long time!

That Enzo is something else...

The orange peel is sooooo bad. I was next to a 3 series yesterday and it looked even worse than that. I know modern paints are to blame but should BMW really be turning out cars that llok this way?? Could you reject a brand new car if it turned up looking like that??

Now the thing is for one reason and another , i do get a lot of enquires / advice about this problem on BxW's ,

I actually wet sand many new BxW's per year , and have also got involved with what you have just posted , IE reject / whos paying for re-work .

I know its gone extremely high within the group too with this problem.

But i cant post much..... meaning many cars being wet sanded or advertise the fact (the reason for lack of wet sanding info / packages on my own website or posts on here) or publish it , as a certain car maker will come down hard on me.

Its got politics involved that i cant post info.

Reject maybe maybe not
dealer pay maybe maybe not

once a car is a few years old then its fine , its having a gallery full of brand new cars with double figure mileage only a few days old then showing them completely wet sanded i think is not to their liking or the finished results

Some read this , excellent Kelly , almost 3 years since original post !

I can imagine said manufacturer ain't too happy with the difference you are making , but when you pay that sort of money for them sort of cars the buyer shouldn't be unhappy with brand new paint !

Surely they should be getting there act together if they don't like it !
