MrDemon
what 4 things were your bug bears on other cars PPF etc ?




Rear wing ppf stopped short where as mine has been tucked right into rear light cluster so no unsightly edge
Door Mirrors had a good few mm of space around the entire base mine are tight up to the actual base
Rear PU unsightly join in the middle below number plate and due to the way it had been done there was now a black hairline showing the join nicely Mine has been wrapped with one piece zero joins
3rd Brake light hadn't been removed I guess and joins showing Mine was done off the car giving a seamless look to it 
 
5th bug bear was inside front lid PPF had lifted away from the panel edges only noticeable when open but I was told mine will stay attached as the example I saw is just bad craftsmanship by the fitter

Cool, looks a really nice job. Which company was this ?
I might be getting into a  718 Spyder :-)

Radio ? NONE.
Cup Holder? NONE
Air Condidioning? DITTO
A pure roadster. Reduced to the essentials
Still the fastest...

Mr D what's happening to you Buying another Spyder  Considering the dreaded PPF! Hope you are feeling OK  Look forward to seeing it as and when you pull the trigger and good luck with the hunt for one
 
Car was done, after much research, by Azuri Car Care The company is owned by a very dedicated to ultimate perfection petrol head and his team all think just like him so the entire journey from start to finish was an absolute pleasure as everyone was on the same page as to what needed to be done and it couldn't have turned out better

HI
 
I fancy a 718 Spyder been on the list for 2 years, don't think it's going to happen. Asked for a 718 GT4 RS and again seems a no.
Asked for a GTS PDK Boxster, again seems a never ending list of mmmm and maybe's and long waits. Hence the M40i Z4.
As my GT3 has gone up the last 6 months, don't mind buying one at 10k overs as it's swings and round abouts and have found a car I like.
 
PPF , yes I hate it, but I would use this car as my daily and in winter, so would do front PU, bonnet and sills. BUT WANT wrap around finishes like you have had done as PPF gets black edges after 12 months.

Keeping my 987.2 Spyder for ever :-), had the 981 and would really like the 718 Car. Had the GT3 for 3.5 years, don't use it enough and values are the highest they will be so can sell the GT3 and the Z4 m40i which has been a great car and I already put 5k miles on it, and get down to 2 cars, both Spyders :-) and come away with £100k cash in my pocket and a 718 Spyder, I gave the oh the Golf CS so we have a cool 4 seater now to use when needed. Would do some choice mods to the car say £25k ish (run 2 sets of wheels/tyres combo) and then run it for 50k miles. New cars are not doing for me and I have too many cars. Feels like a nice car to run for 3 years and do some Longer trips in and more Euro trips going forward. And allows me to do  2 or 3 track days in the 718 as I would swap brakes, etc so would do the track duty better than the 981 I ran.

I want to run a car and say sod the miles and the fall in value. The GT3 is Not that car , it's too hard core to run 100% of the time.
 
will a 50k mile Spyder ever be worth nothing, I doubt it, could work out cheap motoring over 50k miles.
Also OPC service costs have tripled and BMW not far behind, TAX is up and insurance is up, so having only 2 cars would be nice for my pocket also.
