Met the owner of a GT tonight - remembering SD's woes I said I know a guy in Melbourne with one and mentioned some of the quality issues he'd had.

The only thing wrong with it at that point was the sill panels.

At 4000 km's the list is:

-indicator doesn't self cancel when turning left
-emergency boot release cable doesn't work. Problem when battery is in boot and battery is flat!
- brake lights stay on for 5-10 mins after car turned off and permanently on when driving.
- random ASR and active suspension failure warning lights on dash. One minute it's fine, the next the warning lights go off
- randomly holds a gear to redline/engine cutout when gearbox is in "drive" mode- i.e. fill automatic mode
- Saved music on hard drive randomly seizes momentarily
- rear number plate falling off
- wavy sill panels

I love the car when it's all working fine; but at the moment it's like having a beautiful Italian girlfriend that is mentally unstable and drives you nuts as a result.

Then the guy told me his was in a crash repair shop for two weeks because his car had so many problems - including wavy paint and poor finish, mirrors falling off, sat nav dying, electrical gremlins etc etc.  Amazing!

He was interested in talking about the issues with SD, he didn't have his card on him but I told him about this place - I know which company he runs so I'll track him down.

I was impressed with the amount of room in the rear - I always thought it was just a 2+2 but you could probably fit a me-sized adult in there comfy like. :)

If you want quality buy Japanese.

If it's style and charisma you're after however... shop italian!

and the qp was the same, too much to go wrong and not worth the pain, a benz of the same ilk has many more less issues
