The tint ticket is the customer's fault because the car was already tinted, the wrap place didn't do it. But the joyride is totally wrong. No reason to drive the car for a clear bra install.

Joyride is borderline theft since Impressive didn't have the customer's permission.

Never heard of these guys, Impressive Wrap, sounds like they belong in a college food court...

Crazy... I had the Thrifty Valet at Boston Airport drive my Rover around town a month or so ago. Changed all the settings (even the EQ) and ran about a quarter tank of gas. Truck was ok so I didn't complain.... Probably should have. Just won't go there again.

... Disappointing.

The joy ride is about as ridiculous as the price they charged for that install. $2300 for that??? Thats way overpriced for the material and the shitty labor.
