Picked up my Alpine

I picked up my Alpine this Friday but as i was washing her today i found some small issues i didn't notice when i left the dealer. I found 2 spots on the passenger front fascia where it meets fender where they must have chipped the paint right on the corner where it meets at.. I also found a spot on the rear fascia same issue... I'm sure touchup paint can fix this but it does bother me.... Also under the hood the computer appears to be loose.. Has anyone else had these issues???

Welcome.

Haven't heard of a loose PCM before. Seen others report small paint issues before, just a couple though. Neither seems like a large on going problem, rather just a fluke in manufacturing.

The Alpines look awesome. It would of been my choice if they had them in 2012.

yea i just hate the idea of touchup paint on a brand new 69k vehicle... as far as the PCM is concerned it looks like a screw is missing on the right hand side... Its in a difficult spot..

The spots are about the size of the tip of a ball point pen and i know if i make them paint the bumper it will never match... I guess ill have to live with the touch up but im just bummed out about that....

You paid $69k OTD!?!?

Not a fan of groupthink and limitless congratulatory high-fives.

Loving my new Alpine as well. I traded a '12 Black GC SRT-8 in black with only 6k miles on it because I HAD to have the Alpine.

Dd u end up taking a relatively large hit on it? Or was the dealer willing to work with you? I'm actually considering doing the same thing with my silver one, but don't want to come too much out of pocket to do it...
