Hopefully it can be sorted without too much hassle. Just a shame it happened in the first place.

Thanks guys.

On the happier side, just got my car back from the tuner 430hp and 666NM torque instead of 340 and 500 :)
And the new exhaust sound is amazing <3
Can't wait to try it out in Germany on the autobahn and in the Belgian Ardennes :driving:

Finally almost done with the repairs.

Took 4 front bumper Resprays, 3times going back for the corner pieces and grill not being mounted properly, 1 check engine light, a full unwrap , a new front bumper and a respray on the back bumper and about 6 months time, and a shitload of money in lost workhours to get it fixed, but its finaly done!

The insurance payment is still not entirelys sorted but im sure well get there eventually :)

Some good news too, the new wrap design is ready and has been locked in... and its something else :D
I like it on paper, i hope the end result will be as good or even better, if all goes well new wrap beginning 2021.

I think it will be something again that people either really like or really dislike, but it was more or less like that with the colorflow also :)

The final version will be slightly different since in the flat design its difficult to take the shape of the car into account so the end result will be a surprise until delivery day :)

The idea is to have both halfs in a satin white pearl and satin black with then gloss black lines over the top and the yellow lines will be a bright orange-gold color

Thanks man, im sure it will all get worked out eventually. Its not so much the scratches, although it hurts when you see them, its always nothing compared to the pain you get from dealing with insurance companies, and the time lost trying to get stuff fixed. But we're almost there.

I saw your pictures, that looked way worse!
I hope you'll get yours back quickly and with less problems than i had getting mine fixed :-)

The size of the hood makes it a bit difficult for most wrapping materials to wrap it without having a seam line running across the hood, so I decided to make it 2 half wraps instead :)

Yeah it will be one of a kind for sure, hopefully the end result will turn out like I had in mind :)

No disrespect, but no matter how it turns out I don’t think it’ll beat the stunning looks of the one that was on it :thumbsup:

As long as it turns out how you want it, that’s the main thing.

The color on the previous wrap was amazing and I will miss it a lot, but I didn't like the racing stripe on the previous wrap (it that was needed to make the color flow) match on all sides. Since the insurance company is paying for a big part of the re-wrap I figured it was time to try something new :)

...And if it turns out like s**t I can always park it in the street again and wait for the hit and run number three :rofl:
