T6 Cali On Order
Great news! Look forward to seeing some pics - did you go for the Style or Sports Pack in the end?

I have a feeling I may be picking mine up in a month...but itd be great if the dealer could confirm it.
No I dithered, so no sport or style pack......fingers crossed for yours.

We went for the lowering, side tubes, and bike rack. They have the private ref to sort out too. I’ve asked the to send me a pic to show the kids as we are all on the edge of our seats in anticipation now.

Mine is still stuck at the port of Emden. Its been there for 10 days now so another 5 left in theory although reading these posts the maximum doesn't always match up to reality. So close but so far away.

Ok, so I have some pics from the dealer pre cleaning and lowering and accessories etc, but it’s the first I have seen of my new pride and joy and very, very, very excited now!!

I’m thinking about PPF protection to the front. My current car has full PPF and is a year old and looks like new. Easy to clean and not a mark on it. It just costs quite a bit on top of quite a pricey Cali. It’s best to get it done from new though as the stone chips appear quickly.

Looks like it could use that clean! Tremendous Palmerstons...
The dealer said they all look like this after shipping and sitting at docks. Black doesn’t help either. I almost don’t want the dealer to clean it in case they scratch that lovely new paintwork. OCD issues!! I’ll take some new photos to post when I pick it up nice and clean next week. Only five more sleeps!!

You think you’ll get it detailed and ceramic to perfect and protect the paint, make the black paint and wheels easy to keep clean?

I was going to ask the same question. I used Reep (https://www.reepautomotivegroup.com) last time but that was about £4K but haven’t had them quote for the Cali yet. I’m thinking maybe about £1k for just the front?
I’ve been round a few and there’s clearly a super premium level like Topaz and NVN milking the ferrari market and wanting to charge £2.5k+ for PPFing the front and ceramic the lot. Then there are realists like Azuri and FAW who are closer to £1500. Azuri have been recommended elsewhere on here, and use Gtechniq crystal serum ultra (9 year guarantee) and XPEL PPF (I keep hearing recommendations that it’s the best). They will also do the wheels and glass, bellows and interior for £1825+VAT so I think I’ve plumped for them. I got a good feeling about Graham Frawley when we spoke.

Who will do it?
https://www.revolutionwraps.co.uk/ they are a company in Louth..Lincs

2021 VW California PPF kit

Bonnet, Wings & Mirrors
Bumper & Headlights £1231.00

A Pillar & Roof Front £180.00

Luggage Strip £98.00 or Free if ordered with above.

Full Xpel Fusion PPF & Paint 5 year Ceramic Coating £385.00

they do a 6 year ceramic coating which is effectively another layer but it’s twice the price and the guy said it’s not worth the extra

I am told by a guy how used to do this sort of thing but has closed his business due to COVID that Xperia Fusion is one of the best products so we shall see

Thanks Jim, I left the wood floor option as I’m going for full carpet but have a feeling I should have kept that option on my list. Although the club shop has sold out of Brandrup carpet!! I’ll post some more pics next week. When do u collect yours?
