Hi guys!

I'd ordered the red Jaguar XKRS which arrived with paintrash on the areas around front part of the engine bay department, but also around the rear fenders on both sides. I ordered another one, which has got the same issues, although a bit less bad. So the question remains, is this bad-luck or is this a systematic issue with the XKRS? I don't want to exchange for another one anymore...

If I remove the rash, will it grow back? I mean it's a recent release from AUTOart, I thought the issue was long gone...

Here are pics anyways.. Jaguar's design language is sexy for sure.

Sometimes it's colour dependent. Get the blue instead

Last time I looked at my red XKRS it had no rash but I will check again. It would be a shock if it were there.  :bawling: :bawling:

The 2 blue ones that I have aren't affected. Though one is dismantled now.
