They did not provide alignment report , they did said verbally yes it's done. Anyway gave up on them. I went to Stamford tyres to do. Found that indeed wheel alignment was done but not the steering wheel position alignment. It was at 11:30 position on straight road.

 

I have lifetime free alignment with them cos bought a set of VR rims from them.

Do wheel alignment doesn't mean done properly. C&C didn't set your steering wheel to 12 o clock position before they adjust.

How can you operate the steering wheel buttons if steering wheel alignment is incorrect.

 

C&C should have sorted it out correctly otherwise might be considered dangerous.

Can operate la bro. It's the alignment between steering wheel and the steering column. There is a joint that can be loosened and swivel.

Hi guys, I just collected my K3 SX! Just wondering if anyone did PPS to their new car soon after collecting? I'm quite new to driving, only drove a 2nd hand Fit for 1yrs+ previously so never done any detailing.

Hi bro, i will be collecting my SX soon next week. How was the experience with the collection? Can share?

Woah, did the shop fix it by realigning your steering wheel? Or did they go underneath to adjust? Big difference...

Reach showroom, settle paper work with SE. Walk around and check exterior of car, make sure all good. Then SE will conduct "mini training" on the features inside the car etc. After that you are good to go.

 

Enjoy your car and welcome to the club.

Haha, my car is original zirtona pps by C&C n still shiny snow white till date..

 

Car exterior maintenance is 24/7 task, n even if additional 1000+ PPS done but never cover up n exposed to the outside hot sun, acid rain n dust all the time, the exterior will dull.. need constant PPS re-polishing to maintain look..

 

End of day is always cover up the car, park in shade or shelter n wash frequently to maintain the shiny look.. PPS is also not a solid surface protection against scratches..Only is a multi layer protection against the elements, that wears out n need consistent top up..

Is it just me, or does pumping 98 make the car smoother? I decided to try $25 last night and it does feel smoother to me

C&C did not polish it well. With marks and not shiny. I'm not talking about west and tear. You should see a car with proper pps done.

Hv seen. Without proper and regular care of the polished surface, it'll degrade nevertheless.. my brother's car use csII when it first came out n religiously went back for reapplication.. over time the application wear out due to environmental elements n got dull..Reapply again costs $$$, n he gave up.. Best is to protect the surface with a physical car cover, to keep out the dust n acid rain from touching the car surface..Esp true if u work in Tuas..

It's not about proper and regular care. From day one collected car the paintwork is already not good. With fine scratches , sticker adhesive stains, dull clear coat. We have to admit that car dealers are not expert in grooming. So they just do a slip short job for handing over.
