Summary:

A sublime, outstanding car with a few niggles

Faults:

Leakage from right front wing caused wet carpets. Dealer used two weeks to fix. Car's been dry since.

Some occasional rattles from dashboard and passenger door.

Driver's seat (leather) is very noisy when shifting weight. Appearantly easy to sort out.

Keep getting "Rear fog light failure" message, even if it is faultless.

A stunning, head-turning car with a general good quality. It's a sublime drive - even if quality niggles are annoying.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm interested to know if they traced where the water was leaking in. Mine is doing the same thing and I am about to take it to the dealer for them to have a look.
