Without seeing the roof blemish he has spoken of, I’m not going to pass any comment, one way or the other, but one recurring theme running throughout though is how this blemish is completely unacceptable on an £80k car and how Lotus need to up their game if they intend playing with the big boys. Now whilst I agree that any new car should be blemish free I’ve spent an interesting hour or so this afternoon reading several owners stories about panel corrosion on almost new McLarens. Some owners have been complaining of oxidisation under the paint causing bubbling in several aluminium panels on cars only a few months old. All manufacturers should continually strive to improve quality but given these are cars costing in excess of £150k, it does kind of put some of the reported QC issues with Lotus into perspective. Seems as though I’ve maybe dodged a bullet by choosing the Lotus over the McLaren. 😂 Paint bubbling was also an issue for Astons. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
