Body & Paintwork

Choosing Volkswagen's safe wrapping and original paintwork not only gives your car a brilliant appearance, it also keeps you safe.

 

Don't overlook minor dents

Minor damages happen to everyone and it's important to fix the damages promptly.

The body of the car protects you in the unfortunate event of an accident and damages left unfixed can compromise the safety aspect of the car.

Volkswagen Genuine Body Parts

A perfect fit for safety.

Volkswagen Genuine Body Parts fit perfectly, like a glove, so you save time and cost in any repair.

Combined with the high level of stiffness and panel strength, the accurate fit also gives you an optimum absorption of impact energy. And of course, your Volkswagen remains an original through and through.

Why Keep Your Safe Wrapping In Its Best Condition

Designed to absorb the impact in the unfortunate event of an accident, safe wrapping refers to parts of your Volkswagen that are more than just bits of metal - they make a huge difference in protecting your passengers and yourself.

If they are damaged and left unfixed, they will not be able to fulfill their functions and protect you adequately.

Functions of various safe wrapping:

Cross members and bumpers

These absorb most of the impact energy in an accident and distribute it to the body work, hence, making your passenger compartment more robust.

Engine bonnet

In a crash, this deforms and absorbs part of the impact energy. This could prevent and reduce injuries and lower repair costs.

Mudguard

Protect pedestrians and other road users from splash water, swirled-up dirt and small stones.

Volkswagen Paintwork Service

A new coat of paint is not just of cosmetic value. It protects your Volkswagen against corrosion, ensuring a durable and reliable drive.

There is no fixed price for each paint job, as many factors come into play, like the condition of the car, the size of the car, and the type of paint used.
