I just got a Pagani Huayra and I noticed there are some quality control issues.  I'm wondering if anyone has the same issues on their models and if any of them can be fixed...

- front right active spoiler does not open (or at least I haven't been able to get it to open.  I didn't want to apply much more force than I did for the other three spoilers, for fear it might break.)

- rear active spoilers' maximum angle when opened is not the same (not a big issue.  I can lower one slightly so they are even; it's just a small inconvenience).

- odd snap/creaking sound when opening the passenger door

- engine cover has the same snap/creaking sound when I open and close it.  It's also a bit wobbly and does not stay open (is it supposed to be like this?).


This is my second GT Autos Huayra, as the first one I received had a major defect - the left front wheel did not touch the ground.  I returned that one and got this in exchange, so I'd really rather not go through the hassle again of returning my Huayra.

Sorry to hear that, my red one had other issues (the model had been packed while the paint was still soft and it affected the paint) but I was able to polish it out and now it looks great.
I guess you get what you pay for. The earlier models were finished better IMO,  I had a gold one that was perfect.

Oh that sounds really bad.  At least the paint on mine was not affected, so it looks great on display!
