My Christmas Present......


Recommended Posts

Sub date.

I only put my name down for one 2 weeks ago and cause I knew someone got moved up the list, was originally told I was 8th so would probably be looking at next september. Then went back and said to him that I used to work with someone he knows very well and who he owes a favour and he said he would see what he could do. Got a call to say it there was one there for me.

Having said all that I had started to really like the Sea Dweller, got the date but without the bubble which I prefer, and also the Explorer II.

I actually really like the non date sub, but, everyone says that you have to have the date to sell it on again, but I can get the non date for £2150 brand new and would get 90% of that back, where as the date one is £2800 and I would only probably get 85% of that back, and I am buying it because I like it anyway, not to sell on.

I will have a think over xmas, I know you can get them used and mint tomorrow, but would be nice to get my first Rolex with my name on the paperwork.

Straight from the box, I was amazed when I saw them, there are about 2ft long by 3" and no more than 4mm thick.

I did my shop with it when we did a refit in teh summer and the amount of people that say "Oooh, isn't it nice that you kept the original floor." I have given up explaining to them what it it now and just agree. smile.gif

looking good Guy. so what will you do with the old one? is it repairable?

When the old one is on the car you wouldn't even know it was a damaged, looks fine, couple of small scrathes to the right of the flipper but that is it. It is just I know it isn't right and I would not be able to sell the car on knowing that it wasn't mint all over.

I have 4 weeks to send it get it back to my dealer and I will get a refund of £615, so I may stick it on ebay before then and see what it goes for, I am sure there are plenty of people who would lke a proper CSL bumper rather than one of the copies?

It would have to have gone off to a carbon specialist, they would have layed it back up underneath till it was right, then it would have needed respraying etc.

It would have taken 4-6 weeks, and it would have cost me around £600. I would have also had to have bought another flipper at a cost of £150+vat, bringing it to £750.

At that point I thought I might as well just buy it new, couldn't be without the car for over a month for a start, would have had to hire something, even something cheap would have been another £120 a week. In the end I paid £1841 for it.

I didn't even have to get it repaired, but I wanted the car to be 100% right, not just for when I sell it but for me too.

I cut out a strip from abs plastic to replace the bit that was missing so I could put the flipper back on, and it worked a treat, I will take a pic or two to show what happened.
