    Paintproblem, lower part of the bumper looks ugly!!!

    my father has a black cayenne s and brought his car to a garage, an official porsche dealer to paint the lower part of the bumper.

    the only thing they did, was to brush the lower part and now it looks not like the rest of the car, ugly!!

    Does anyone have pictures in high quality, that I can compare with my fathers car???

    and if someone has got some ideas how to do better, let me know!!


    Re: Paintproblem, lower part of the bumper looks ugly!!!

    Re: Paintproblem, lower part of the bumper looks ugly!!!

    The 05 models are having the lower part already painted, so one solution would be wait and order all the lower parts already painted

    Re: Paintproblem, lower part of the bumper looks ugly!!!

    BAdy.

    In the 05 the lower part is not "painted", is in the same body colour but is not LIKE the body paint..

    In fact you see again the difference between the upper and lower parts of the bumper..

    in silver can works..but in blue,black etc..is not really good..IMHO

    Re: Paintproblem, lower part of the bumper looks ugly!!!

    so you mean its still in that grain (ruvido) plastic?

    Re: Paintproblem, lower part of the bumper looks ugly!!!

    yes..

    Re: Paintproblem, lower part of the bumper looks ugly!!!

    What do you mean by "they brushed the lower part..."?
    The lower part always looks grainy, even if painted, it isn't the same "smooth" look like the exterior metal body.
    Of course you can ask the paint shop to make it look "smooth" but this wouldn't be the original look.
    Do you have a picture?

    Re: Paintproblem, lower part of the bumper looks ugly!!!

    Some people have had it sanded smooth first before painting.

    Re: Paintproblem, lower part of the bumper looks ugly!!!

    thanks for the information.

    It looks like the plastic before. I don't know if the painted lower part of the bumper from factory looks the same. I mean it looks like before, the difference is only that there is black paint on it. I thought that it should look like the rest of the painted car???

    Is it a difference between the plastic on the side and the plastic from the front and rear bumper??

    Do you have a close picture from your cayenne?

    thanks for the help!!

    I will do a picture next time I have the possibility to do that.

    Yes, right. This is how it is supposed to look if you get the lower part painted by the factory (Turbo for example).

    Re: Paintproblem, lower part of the bumper looks ugly!!!

    Ok I made a picture. sorry guys I know next time I should clean the car first

    Does it look like factory paint?

    Re: Paintproblem, lower part of the bumper looks ugly!!!

    It looks better than having it black

    last

    Re: Paintproblem, lower part of the bumper looks ugly!!!

    Not every body&paint shops can paint it right, there is a way of painting these plastics, so you can get the original look. I recommend to use bumper shops for best result.
