I've ordered my factory JCW with factory-fit black bonnet stripes, not realising that dealer-fit stripes were available. I've seen threads referring to 'Viper' stripes but the latest CD configurator shows 'sports' stripes. Are sports stripes the same thing as Viper stripes?
The reason I ask is that i'm thinking of getting the dealer to remove the factory bonnet stripes and stick on black sports stripes for bonnet and rear and white sports stripes for the roof (on my PW with black roof). Obviously i'll still be charged for the factory bonnet stripes but that's not much of an issue.
Do you guys think there will be any issues with the paintwork if I ask the dealer to remove the factory bonnet stripes and stick sports stripes on? I don't want to risk the paintwork being damaged in any way but the car will be brand new and i'll be asking the dealer to do the work before I go to collect it.
^ In my case, I wasn't told by my dealer that any other options for stripes were available! I'm a bit annoyed about it TBH as I still have to pay for the factory stripes and then have to pay to get them removed!
I think i'm being well and truly shafted by my dealer after spending nearly £28K on a factory JCW with him. He's quoted me just short of £300 to remove the two bonnet stripes and stick on black bonnet and rear sports stripes and white roof sports stripes!
I'm just going to leave the factory bonnet stripes on for now. To be honest, i'm very disappointed that the dealer is quoting these sorts of prices after spec of the JCW that i've ordered through him.
