Hi all I went to view a Lapiz 7R today and in the sunlight the paint seemed to be really swirly , is it a lot softer than DBP on the 4&5? My paintwork seems to be in much better condition tbh! I know it can be corrected , but didnt expect to see so many swirls on a 2 year old car! The dealer had a White and a Limestone car in that both looked perfect , but it's Lapiz that "floats my boat" so to speak.

Probably just had a life of car washes , which is highly likely with 2nd hand cars, and lease cars ?

Thats what I thought. Its a bobby basic , with only met paint over base spec. Got a set of Prets to go on and I guess I could get a correction detail.

My neighbour just bought a 15 plate one {he said it's still got 17months warranty ?)

3door,moonstone, manaul, leather, sunroof, big nav, 12k miles ,

He got it for £20k, private sale

Seemed like a decent price , not a brilliant spec , but it seemed like a bargain ? He certainly loves it. I'm gonna get a drive next week.

How much is the one you are looking at ?

Lapiz blue is quite soft when considering VW paint is generally a hard paint, correction should fix it however
