This really shows off the beauty of DV. Other than RHD, that's literally my spec. It looks good in the video, but it's going to be really interesting to see how it looks after ppf.

Is it common to leave the factory PPF and carve the new PPF to fit around it? How obvious would the edges be? Looking forward to the next video.

Im DV also, and saw DV in person for the first time yesterday at Lotus Prestbury, you will not be disappointed, easily the best colour!

Great video but in shock that Lotus delivered it without the black pack and it still has black tail pipes, they even called the customer to say do you want us to send you the silver tail pipes 🤷🏻‍♂️😂😂😂

The Hethal circus continues 🤡

Interesting about the orange 🍊 peel comment as one of the things I picked up from viewing a demo car on Friday. Surprising considering the investment in the paint process

He actually said he would remove the factory PPF and fit new PPF to the whole panel, and then put a second layer of PPF in the high risk area where the original factory PPF was.

I hve requested a quotefrom these guys for Full front, bonnet top roofline, mirrors, sills and rear arches. Impressed by the video and located in Telford Shropshire so good for Cheshire. They offer a 10 year guarentee which may be standard but inspires confidence.
The side sills in black gloss do look very vulnerable and I think it will be worth it.
Oakmere in Cheshire say they do have someone locally they can recommend, but probably in Manchester, not so good for me in South Cheshire.
Nimbus on order. I daren't show my wife the Verdant- she was keen on that rather than "old man silver".

Removing PPF is a real test of the quality of the paint job. I’ve seen horror stories of it taking factory paint off where it didn’t adhere properly. However, if the PPF is new maybe it can be removed with no issues?
