it is actually quite interesting that you have took time out of your day to post about a badge, that is stuck onto a McLaren?

[quote=RBT0]Yes was wrapped in black, confirmed, but I am told badge clips from behind, not glued....cmon guys, have you got a McLaren or dreaming of owning an aircraft?

Or are you seriously thinking an OEM would put some tape to stick a badge on a car? Maybe only a stupid and bad dealer would do that. Not even, it would have been too stupid.

RBTO, is this the same car with the flat battery? So a brand new car that isn't a brand new car and has been wrapped in the past, has been left with the windows down and the battery flat meaning you had to pull the door-release strap to open the door, being sold by a dealer who doesn't know the badges are stuck-on, yet who couldn't be bothered to take the badge off to remove the wrap properly.

I really hope this car is mega cheap and being sold from some dodgy 'under the arches' type outfit and not from a McLaren dealer!

Find another dealer. Simple as that.

Very intrigued by this...

Please keep up posted and disclose when you are able (which begs the question... what is actually stopping you?)

Yes I'll do in due course.
I don't want the dealer to find out I am writing here about something that is still under discussion with him, not fair to him.
And because it's something borderline for an official dealer, it's not a nice thing to write.

Moreover, if they behave in a good way, the story may have an happy end. I want to give them a chance.

Except most dealers read this forum! At least Ascot certainly do - the sales person I spoke to there last week was very familiar with recent threads on depreciation, servicing delays, bodywork corrosion, etc. That might act in your favour of course, if they know you’re nervous.

I am happy if they read.

I am ok with what I've written so far, no more than what I've told them.

Hmmm - I wonder if this is directed at me? I told a McLaren dealer the depreciation on a 570 was too risky for me and I am looking at aeroplanes instead.

Hmmmm ...
