    Default vauxhall 10 year warranty on paintwork???

    I sent my car to get a valet today and when i returned the guy who was doing it told me that vauxhall give a 10 year warranty on paintwork.

    My car is flame red and staring to fade on the roof and bonnet.

    Is this true?

    And it has to have had an inspection every year. It's normal for flame red to fade, its just a case of cutting it and keeping the wax topped up

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!! Don't use t-cut, its a swear word for us car detailers lol

    Go and get yourself some meguiars ultimate compound and follow it with the meguiars three stage system (paint cleaner, polish, wax)

    It takes a bit of time but lasts for 3 or 4 months
