Quality control woes continue. I received my brand new AUTOart Diablo SE30 Jota today. It is missing a headlight lens and has paint damage around the engine compartment. It sounds as if the missing lens might be rattling around somewhere inside the model.

Bummer. I was really looking forward to that one. :cry: It wasn't cheap either.
