So my new R-Sport 180 has finally arrived guys. I picked it up last night and this morning the brake callipers have been painted and the (skoda) exhaust tail pipes have been fitted. I've only done just over 50 miles so far but it feels good. Off to Milton Keynes tomorrow and am looking forward to my first ride out !!

Calliper safe now red, fitted the exhaust tips ourselves and it took less than 5 minutes. Exhaust tips came from eBay and are easy to fit. It looks good !

I think there seems to have been a mistake here. They appear to have delivered my car to you instead. :)

Nice car. I'm getting more excited as my delivery date approaches. Did you paint the calipers yourself?

Yep ! small brush with some good calliper paint and it took about 2 hours to do all four. I was a little disappointed that i couldn't get jaguar decals on the callipers (just a little to small), other than that , all good !!

Hopefully it wont be to long mate, do what i did, complain to jaguar customer service and have a little rant on the jaguar facebook page. That got things moving for me !

Was that just one coat per calliper? I've seen recommendations to do four coats.
