Just talk to them, explain you think they might have made a mistake. I'm sure you will not fall out with them.

Besides if you think you don't want to upset them because you use them alot, don't you think they will be thinking that they don't want to upset you and lose a good customer?

its le mans green or what ever its called. no i asked if i need to leave the car or did he just want the splitter he said just leave the splitter. they have done a bit of work on my car before and its been spot on thats why i always use them and tell every one i no to go there the only thing i can think of is that some one else has done it and not the normal person.
i will have to go down tomrrow and try and get this sorted out.

nahhhh, i had new skirts, front bumper, bonnet, rear bumper and tailgate sprayed seperately for the anthracite zed without getting them blended in and they were all a perfect colour match!

for skirts and bumper they didnt even have the car i just picked them up when they were sprayed and fitted them myself and were a perfect match.

my mate who runs his own paint place has just seen that and said its prob one of them days when it just didnt go right! some times 1 in 20 dont match properly!

he said if it was him and any of his mates they would just have it back and re do it whilst apologising!
