Awaiting delivery!

Got the call last week to tell me my car is sitting at the dock, ready to be loaded onto the next available ship (not a bad position to be in considering the original build date was week 15 next year!).  It has been touch and go as to whether we'd get it before the VAT increase in January but it looks like we'll not have anything to worry about.

So what is this BeasTTie?
TT-RS roadster, s-tronic, sepang blue, silver leather, no rear spoiler (I think the roadster looks like a pram with it!), 19" arm rotor alloys, parking sensors, music interface, bluetooth, Bose, cruise, electric lumber support, satnav (wonder if it is better than HevNav??), interior light pack, tyre pressure monitor.....      







Time is draaaaaaggggggging by sooooooooo slooooooooowwwwwwly!

Looking good Hev - why didn't you opt to drive it back from the factory?
Hev

To be honest, it has arrived quicker than we expected and we are both working so getting time off work to go and collect it....it would have been good to do it tho.  On the other hand, we want to get it 'wrapped' pretty much straight away so I think I would have cried quietly in the corner if I picked up stone-chips on the way back

A clear wrap? For protection?

I'd suggest getting the leading edges of the wheel arches done too.

Ali - I had stone protection film on my RS4 and it never yellowed - I think it's a case of you get what you pay for.

Tinthaus in Perth would be who we would use

Gave an indication of 485 partial bonnet, full bumper and leading edges of wings and mirrors

I reckon around 600 or so for as above plus full bonnet

They also have a template for the RS bumper so they only need the car overnight rather than starting from scratch :-

Welcome Hev

Once the 6 was resprayed Ventureshield paint protection film on applied to the front of the car including the headlights, wheel arches,side skirts and the top of the rear bumper to stop scratching the while loading/unloading dogs and stuff . One year later no stone chips or any sign of yellowing.

Can't recommend enough
