    Its a been a long wait (3 months?) but I am finally picking up my MS 75 tomorrow. Pretty damn excited. Was wondering if anyone has any tips/info on what I should look for when picking up. Saw a checklist floating around somewhere but seeing if any other info is out there. Cheers!

    If you care about the details..

    Bring small flashlight. The interior is dark and the flashlight will also help find any paint imperfections.

    Check exterior for scratches, trim fitment and check the rubber seals. Check the hood for alignment where it meets the front 2 fenders.

    Interior: check seats for cuts/scratches in leather. Make sure you have a rear license plate holder installed or in the hatch. Mine was missing and i didnt notice until my plates came in and i sidnt have screws to install it.

    Check operation if everything. Seats, glove box, mobile power chord, etc.

    My DS seemed to want me out the door quick. I took my time and found a few imperfectons, the greatesr being a missaligned hood that caused paint chipping during open/close.

    Grats!
    For me, there was no problem with the car except the sunroof grease was overflowing through the rail. I will have the center fix like next week.

    Other than the car is sleek and impeccable.
