It does look very nice - when you go to collect, take your time going over the whole car in detail inside and out - when Listers delivered my Touareg, brand new, it had been badly cleaned.

That's nothing!

When Cass went to collect one of his, VW had fitted bent doors!

Check the condition of the wheels very carefully. They cost an absolute fortune to refurb if there's any damage and the clear coat tends to chip and get water underneath leaving a horrible milky look.

I’d noticed that a couple of the wheels had some corrosion ie scrape and scratches , which I pointed out, and they had all 4 wheels refurbished so couldn’t complain and they look great.

I had the paint protection done , and to be honest I could have done a better job myself, they’re not the best at cleaning

That's good.

Mine had three badly chipped wheels, looked like some toe rags had tried to remove the VW centre caps with a screwdriver. Stealer refurb'd those 3 but the quality of the refurb is bad with two of them needing another going over already (12months later) due to chips in the clear coat. As they're diamond cut the best price I can get at the moment is around £200 per wheel with a 4 day turnaround. As the number of refurbs on a diamond cut is limited because of the material they have to remove I'll probably just get them powder coated at some point.

Oh dear, that sounds like they haven't improved - if I'd known earlier I'd have suggested getting Shaun at Definitive Shine to carry out ceramic coating, he did that with mine when it was new and it still looks like new after nearly 5 years - he did have to finish the cleaning that Listers should have done as part of the PDI - I'd recommend him for valeting if you need that.

Will bear that in mind

That looks like a superb motor @Been, lets hope you got a good-un.

I'm pretty sure that one of my previous cars was transformed from so-so to outstanding by Shaun (Definitive Shine) and it looked great for a long time afterwards.

My latest one came from Listers in Leamington Spa in mid March and I was pretty impressed with them given that we were in the early stages of a COVID-19 pandemic.

To be fair it’s just doing the daily commute at the moment and hasn’t missed a beat, hope to try and get out over this coming weekend and take her for a good run.
I got this one from Listers Worcester,

Listers Worcester did a great job of sorting out some problems on my Tiguan.

They even fixed some stuff under warranty that the dealer I bought it from (not Listers) really should have picked up and done before they sold it.

+1 for Listers Worcester
-5 for Selling Dealer
