    Hey everyone, I just picked up my X a couple of days ago and found some fit and finish issues with the car. I had already scheduled to get my car wrapped with XPEL Stealth, but now the car will go in for service. I'm trying to see if anyone else have had these following problems so I can guesstimate how long the car will need to be in for service and reschedule to get my car wrapped.

    1. Right FWD keeps sensing there's something close by, so it doesn't open all the way. This occurs about 80% of the time.

    2. Left FWD squeaks at the top of the swing during opening operations. Is fine when closing.

    3. Some obvious fit and finish issues. Left side of car looks great. Right side of car has a small misalignment between FWD and front door. Larger gaps around quarter window. If I look at the roof from the side, I can see the right FWD is slightly higher than the left.


    Anyone have had similar problems? How well did the SC fix everything? How long did they take? Thanks!

    I picked up my X in Feb. They finally set up an appt at the SC about 5 weeks ago for similar issues (FWD sensor issue, FWD fit and various others). Car has been in service since then. This is in Austin, TX.
    When I checked back on the FWD fit, it is better but still not great. They did provide a loaner X in the meantime
