Focus Areas

Focus Area 1
Area Exterior
Customer Request Car had part or full repaint. Which? Is it 100% professional? Overspray, bad taping, orange peel, etc. VIN lookup said color is "Pepper Green Metallic" not "Carbon Gray". Was color changed? Dings? Scratches? Are wheels perfect? Road rash? Warping?
Issue? Yes
Tech Comments Carbon Grey exterior paint color, not Pepper Green Metallic. The car is a full repaint. The paint is clean with very little trash under the clear coat or orange peel look. There are some tape lines and rough panels edges which were covered in the report.
Focus Area 2
Area Interior
Customer Request How is driver's seat? Is outer side seat bolster crushed at all? It was re-dyed, how does it look? Any damage or wear to leather or carpets? Speakers? Windows? Glass Roof? Dash bulbs? Dash buttons peeling? Error messages? Shift boot? All keys work?
Issue? No
Tech Comments The driver seat repair was covered in an earlier section of the report. The repair is substandard in my opinion. The seat bolster (bracket cover?) looks fine and hasn't been damaged.
Focus Area 3
Area General
Customer Request These cars have weak points that need special care - eLSD differential check leaks & function, - rear self-leveling shocks, - ignition coils. - self-leveling headlights - and please check condition & function of brakes (how new are they?)
Issue? No
Tech Comments The rear differential showed no leaks on either axle. The seller mentioned that he has replaced the coils recently and the shocks felt tight during an initial pressure test and on the test drive. There appeared to be no issues with the headlamps as well.
