    Side Sills

    Hi all,

    I am getting ready to take delivery of my baby tomorrow morning. I went to the dealer this evening after hours to take a look, as I getting very excited. Everything looked perfect except for one thing, the black plastic side sills seemed to be "popped out" a little bit. I actually saw the car last night too and don't recall seeing this. The pre-delivery stuff was done today. I have a few thoughts as to what may have happened.

    1. It really was like this and I didn't notice it the 1st time I saw the car.
    2. The plastic side sills "popped out" when the car was put on a lift today to do the pre-delivery stuff. (this is what I am thinking happened)
    3. The plastic side sills have to be taken off to put the car on the lift and weren't put back on 100% correctly.

    Any thoughts? Has this happened to others? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    - Chris

    hey cwacker,

    i would be surprised if the car would have to be lifted or jacked up for pdi.

    pdi usually just means removing all the plastic protection covers in and out as well as checking fluid levels and setting up pcm to local settings.

    so i believe this did not happen there.
    could easily happen when driving off the trailer though.
    check if the there are any scratches.

    anyhow, the dealer should rectify everything before you take delivery.
