I finaly got a check from my dealer and a full refund. Small step in continuous fight for better dealer service.

Then i went down to Repco, i got entire Megure range, Sheepwool mit, Aplication pads, Microfiber towel, NXT wax and Shampo, and budy of mine who works in Paint/Body shop gave me a bottle of Flashwax, its compaund that is applied on top of wax and enhances glos, removes svirls etc. So to shorten the story after two hours of hard work, Z is sparkling, with that deep deep black coat. I am very happy with results.

:soapbox:

Good for you...
Now what to do with the other $1450.00????
Maybe some springs,shocks,swaybars or coil overs???
Maybe run a poll to see what everyone thinks on how to spend???
Have fun anyways!

I say you should get windows tinted 20%, get a popcharger, lamin-x taillight overlays, eibach springs.... wait, then it would look like mine. On second thought, just go on vacation :)

Glad you got your money back and your Z is sparkling more than ever :)

Window tint, that was on my list. Forgot about it. Yes i have black interior on black car ill be baking in direct sunlight. Do you know what is the legal maximum for side and back, and i assume 3M film is the best to use.

Depends on where you are. Here it's 30%, but you can get away with 20% without anyone noticing. You just need to ask an officer of the law. They should know.

Find a friendly tinter and get the screen tinted with a very light tint. No-one will notice and it makes a huge difference in the sun.

Yes i know what you mean Mick. There is tint shop just few streets across my house, i might have a "chat" with them today.

PS: When it somes to "tint" i am as clueless as any1, i have no idea how its applied, i know they put layers of film over glass but thats it... do they actaly have to take "glass" out of doors, or do they tint only the bit that is there with windows rolled up??

yeh Dj, they just apply it on the inside of the window with distilled water, the tint just sticks to it somehow..

what colour is your Z? should get a nice colour tint to match the car - i have platinum with a semi-mirror tint on it

35% is the darkest legal in NSW. FWIW I had 20% on mine and found it just a little too dark at night. 28% would be perfect IMO but isn't easy to find.

So does anyone know of an outlet that gives a lifetime replacement on its tint? I need to get the tint replaced on my other car.

I think the Solace F1 tint has a lifetime warranty. Its also at a legal tint level.
