    So first upon close inspection there were many flaws and damages on the car? I was like..ummm..wtf..why...this car was sitting at factory long enough that everyone there should have inspected it inside and out...one of the rear panel paint was bubbling bad, and it continually got worse over that week, there was a chip on the inner carbon part of the roof. I was like..c'mon, for a 1.5MM car, what kind of mickey mouse Hyundai inspection is that..but I mean I guess it all makes sense now since they do have a turnover rate around 30% on employees. The interior was very deceiving from pictures, in real life it was so garbage, everything looked great/much better on pictures and rendering and I am saying this for all Ksegg cars...the interior material was soo cheap that I feel like fkn Audi uses better stuff...and guess what Christian's response to correct these damages was? Oh..well we'll have everything done at Platinum after Pebble.............and thats including a brand new interior....

    ARE YOU FUCKIN SHITTIN ME WITH THAT??

    From the get go I said to him, I understand Koenigsegg is a small company, and I am not trying to compare you to Buggati, but wtfo..would u be happy with that response. I tell you what Bugatti do in those instances even if it does happen, they fly in the EXACT people that spray the entire car, and do it at the dealership where the car is at.


    So after Quail was the first time I get to drive the car....but just right before..Christian informed us that the car is not 100%...? I mean...u got how many months to work that out? How can it not be? I am the owner been waiting for ages and driving it for the first time? WTF are you smoking. There was not a black box update via the ODB port done yet was his answer, the ECU wasn't 100%, car had no ABS, Navi, Traction..I was like..uhhh okay... and the AC was soo shit/weak I felt like I was in Dubai in the car in Pebble Beach with AC on full blast? No wonder no one there in Dubai wants any more of this junk..

    My first impression of the car was banging outside, the inside..suck balls. Such a big drop off from seeing it pics, and you don't really relalize how out dated the interior actually looks, and I know I had specced it the way that would avoid that issue the best way I know how, but it still give me that feeling. And theres the instrument cluster that everyone talks about and look so banging on pictures, the entire thing is soo damn small, u cant see jack shit in most of the stuff in there....I was like uhhhh this seriously looks like a mini video game stuff..it was at that point I finally come to grip with the notion that I haven't been able to accept in my mind before, the Agear is basically a facelift CCXs....which is not what any Agear owner would want I would assume right?

    The car steering feels alright, precise enough, but didn't feel exotic one bit, the gearing was the worst I feel, it was soo off and way too long in every gear, but end of the day it still just feels like a heavily modified V8 engine.....which..isn't the feeling u want from a supposedly hyper car...the triplex suspension was good actually. The transmission was complete dogshit, in low gear and low speed it feels just like an 04 Gallardo those of you driven it or owned one will know what I mean...i couldn't believe that. The car feels like a 400K car...


    These are just some of the things I have kept completely quiet and been covering for Christian for the past 2 years...normally I wouldn't never allow this to happen, but I was willing to give him another chance to make it right and make it up to me starting from the end of Pebble...

    Wow! Just read the thread from start to finish. At first I thought BC was being a bit too harsh, and I would give Ksegg the benefit of the doubt. But after reading BC's post above.....I can only say BC did the absolute right thing. Good for you BC Just take it as experience (albeit bad) and move on. Don't let this whole thing drag you down, you have a beautiful stable and I see you have some awesome cars on order from larger more well known manufacturers.

    Cheers

    While taking pictures of the car at Quail I noticed something that stuck out immediately to me...
