Hi,just wondered if anyone new of any good suppliers/fitters of vinyl graphics in the Telford area.I'm after some viper stripes,the dealer will do them for £240(apparently they've just gone up by £25)but just wondering if i could get non official ones alot cheaper.I know the dealer doesn't do them themselves so there must be someone quite local.Hope you can help.Paul

have a look under signwriters in your local yellow pages give them a call and see which ones already do vehicles, vans etc. I expect you will find loads of people in your area. Ask to see some work they have done.
If there own van looks well done with nice graphics its a good sign.
Came up in some other threads, It will invalidate your paint warranty if you use non official stripes but check that with your dealer. Its minimal risk but £240 could seem cheap if there was a paint problem in couple of years.

I really liked the idea that if i had the official ones i can take it back to the dealer if there is a problem.I was a bit miffed cos i had decided to go for the official ones and wanted them done for when i pick up the car on Monday but they can't fit them until at least Thursday,and i had convinced myself to spend the £215 only to be told"they've gone up in price by £25".I always thought that there would be an issue concerning the warranty and non official graphics but so many people seem to have done it that you assume it must be okay.The only thing i think is what if someone damages the car while fitting the stripes?If its the dealer then they will sort it,but non official companies..hmmmmmmm.By the sounds of it i've talked myself out of going the cheap route with a little help.

Has BMW stopped doing this?
Any sign company should do it if not shouldent cost that much.
I had mine done by the dealer a bit overpriced but he did a top notch job on it.
