That's what I thought. I think the old name RTA stills gets used, old habits. I heard from the officer this morning. BMW driver, not his car. Belongs to his Dad. Admitted to the damage. Claimed he had been up all night waiting for the Police to knock on his door. Said he could hear stones being kicked up and hitting my car. I was driving too slowly, according to him. 40mph in a 40mph zone. His excuse? Golden. He was behind me, claiming my front headlights were illegal, blue and on high beam. This was blinding him, which made him overtake and carry on speeding. He then used the same excuse for speeding off from the traffic lights. Officer didn't buy any of it due to the footage. Told him your heavy right foot, all to get to a set of traffic lights quicker, will probably now cost you your NCB. Bodyshop owner knows customers who have had M2's and sold them, too much of a wild weapon and back end is very twitchy.
Respray turned out really well. The front bumper is the oldest paint now but in excellent condition, so not a perfect match to that but very close. Why I did passenger side, rear end and drivers side. Colour is spot on in the right light. Had a machine polish as well, so paint is like glass. Fresh wheels and calipers also. While I was in there, they had an Ultimate Green RS in for a front end respray. Had been to two other bodyshops and the paint match was awful, really bad. Went back to check on mine, they had done the RS and it looked spot on. One of the worst colours to paint and match the UG, as it has a certain amount of gold in the paint, to give it that pop. Has to be exact, or it throws the whole colour off. The gold also seems to throw off the five camera paint spectrophotometers, which can mean Technical Support.
