Took delivery of my 2015 S85D two weeks ago and it has sat in my garage while I waited for my appointment for paint protection to be installed.
The installer went over the car and pointed out numerous flaws in the paint that are really disappointing for a car that is 112K.
The edge of my hood is peeling or it was touched while wet, granted its not visible unless the hood is up or if you are sitting on the ground.
But the paint is very thin in this area based on paint the paint meter readings. The PPS installer is concerned in the event of film failure, removing it could pull the paint off since the edge is so thin. He also found a teeny tiny hair and marring on the doors. The marring on the doors I am paying to have fixed and am just going to go ahead with the film install on the hood since I dont want to deal with repair which usually turns out to be a mess if done.
I just cant believe such obvious flaws are missed, I get that no paint is perfect you can always find something wrong. But when the flaws are so obvious it makes you question who is handling quality control.
