    It was lush . . . . . .. . . . . .
    Its not even registerd yet and has had full brake upgrade and a turbo back non res miltek
    It also had adaptive lights red/black leather sat nav bose .
    I also really like the white Lights on the rev counter display .
    Also noticed some minor diffrences with the switches below the sat nav

    Looks like it'll be nice once all unwrapped, i wonder if the new rear diffuser will fit the pre facelift? im still hating the new headlights and mirrors tho, i thought they might grow on me but there actually getting worse.

    I see the wiper stalk is different to mine, did this happen with the 1st facelift or the new one?

    Looks like new diffuser will fit from what i could see . Hmmm lights looked really nice when on , only becuase it dazzles u from seeing all the swirly chrome lol . mirrors were actually nice to look out of but not to look at from the exterior

    Looks good! How is it modded already? Did the dealer fit the Milltek and brakes?

    I was wondering just the same thing - seems a very odd thing to do to an unregistered car: who has paid for these mods ??
    Do you think the dealer also included that bird **** just above the exhaust ?

    I doubt the warranty is fully voided?.. Brakes issues yes, exhaust , probably but would a dealer really turn the car away?.
    I suspect that the car would also be chipped if it has been to QST then, probably REVO?

    All cars get driven before they're handed over to the customer. They're driven on and off ships, trains, trucks and in and out of the car park/dealers yard (which often isn't that near to the dealership) and then they do a full road test to make sure it's all ok before you get it! Plus this one has been to an aftermarket tuners to be remapped, so most likely will have done a few miles on the RR and a few more on the road there.
