Default My fit and finish issues...

So guys, here are some photos of the main issues I have with my Karma's fit and finish. Curious on your thoughts (especially those of you who have Karmas now).

The passenger seat. Looked a little more crumpled than the one in the demo. What do you guys think? Should I ask Fisker to fix/replace?




Rear bumper panel gap



Trunk




Paint - the infamous "orange peel"





What do you guys think?

Looks like the same QA guy who was on duty for my car was on duty for yours too.

Brian, my VIN is only a few spots behind yours.... So probably made within days of each other. Do you have same leather issue?

They save a lot of leather (cowhide) by using also the not quite perfect parts. But this piece looks a bit too rough though. The problem with the alignment of the trunk is a copy of my car. This is something that needs to get fixed and which hopefully can be done fairly easy by adjusting the hinges (I will ask for it when I go back for a software-upgrade in the coming weeks).

The bumper cover on the right against the fender is similar to mine. Doesn't look pretty, but I have no idea how they can fix it. Your paint looks great. That is less "orange peel" look than on either of my Mercedes and about the same as on the Lambo. Your right side trunk lid can use some adjusting. As for the seat, try some Botox. Seems to work great in California. But, on second thought, ask them to replace/repair/restrech the seat.
Cheers,

A monotone leather interior looks so different than the Tri-Tone. But as for the leather, I am sure they will tell you that it is the Bridge of Weir use of the whole hide that is attributable to that. I can't remember where, but I saw a piece that had noticable stretch marks on just below the Fisker imprint on the seat.

Luckily my car doesn't have any fit and finish issues on the interior. But my exterior looks a lot like yours except with even more. I had seen similar leather issues in preproduction photos, and I was worried about it, but they did a good job with the leather in mine.
