    Default 4 Days to go!

    Hi Everyone,

    firstly - thank you for being such an open and informative community. After doing tons of reading elsewhere it was these forums that got me over the line to put my money down!

    I pick up my spanking new MPS3 in VR on tuesday - can't wait to get the keys!

    Look forward to adding my own OMG moments to the forums.

    Cheers,
    Lex

    Nice! apologies now though if I don't respond coz I'm too busy concentrating on keeping my right foot from misbehaving

    @Luke - never modded before coz the wife and kids got every new car I bought... this one is MINE so we'll see. Have a mate in the Lotus club and he's trying to get me into track days etc so will start looking into it. Lot's to understand.

    Love the sig Fiend! I know a few people who could get life memberships!

    4 more days to go! For those of you with better maths skills than me - oops my bad.

    If I had a dollar for every time that happened I could by another MPS!

    So much fun - still can't wipe the smile off my face

    I'm in protective mode now and would like to ask a question of the detailing gurus. I'm going to order the paint protection pack from ZAS (the one with Epic and Hydro etc) - did you guys apply this straight after you bought your car? The smart part of my brain (small that it is!) is telling me to do it straight away but after reading how particular the whole process is I guess I'd like to know if there are any gotchas a noob should be aware of before I stuff something up.

    Thanks, Lex

    As one who's just done this on my car Lex, it's definitely worth it.

    Yes it's an investment in time (especially when the car's new and you just want to be driving it rather than watching stuff dry on the paint), however the end result is just stunning and the process itself is not complex at all.

    As has been mentioned, have a look through the detailing section (Postman Dan's put up a brilliant how-to on the DIY paint protection) and also have a chat to Joel at ZAS.

    Cannot recommend the process enough though

    Congrats on getting your car Lex! Good idea of doing the Prima paint protection, Postman Dan's looks bloody awesome up close and Dan's (Caffeine Fiend) came up just as good. You should check their pics out if you haven't already.
    I have just started using the ZAS proiducts and put simply, they rock! Enjoy the car and great colour you picked, Team VR will be so happy!!

    Thanks Duglet, I'll post questions in the appropriate forums in future, wasn't really thinking straight with all the excitement.

    Thanks Fiend and steinez for the encouragement and pointers to info, I have no problem investing the time with this car, I love it. Have contacted Joel and will place my order today.

    Thanks all, I'll see you in the regular forums.

    Hi Lex,

    Mine has her birthday on the 14th of this month. I didn't invest in paint protection when I bought it as I wasn't sure it was worth doing at the time. I've since purchased the paint protection kit from ZAS and am going to have a go at the process over the Christmas break. Luckily I have PostmanDan just down the road in case I stuff something up . Dan's write up is very helpful though so I'm sure I'll be fine!

    I've been using Prima Hydro every fourth or so wash and Slick after every wash for the last 9 months or so. The products are amazing, I can't rave enough about them!!!!

    Hi Leelu

    Happy B'day !!! She looks fantastic! Great colour choice too...

    I didn't get the paint protection either, luckily I had already browsed around here and read about the experiences others had so didn't bother. Thanks to all the rave reviews I went and bought the ZAS paint protection kit as well. Looks like we are doing the same thing over the Xmas break Lucky you having 'the man' so close by to help out, I'll make sure I study his guide properly before starting.

    Cheers
