    Default 2018 F3 Limited White pearl paintjob

    I have noticed that the "White Pearl" paintjob on my Spyder looks mottled. First I thought it was dirt that I was seeing, but after cleaning and polishing it it looks the same. It is mostly visible on the frunk lid.
    I don't know if I should make a case of it with the dealer/BRP, or just ignore it. It's frustrating, though.

    You should not accept anything that is not perfect on the paint. you paid good $ for the Spyder, so I would go back to the dealer and tell them that they need to correct this. BRP can send new panels to fix this.

    BRP can either fix the paint or replace the lid.

    Another card on the pile for fix or replace the offending part. Way to expensive to tolerate a bad paint job.

    Default Me too!!

    I have a Pearl White 2017 F3T purchased new from dealer this July and the edge of the frunk has like a off color tint. I kept thinking it was just me but know I think it's the paint job. I'm going in to the dealer soon to have lights added, I am definitely going to bring it to their attention.

    Spyders carry a premium price and the quality should be there when new.

    Things may have changed, but the warranty on my 2013 RTL expressly excluded paint flaws.
