Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun
 
1 Attachment(s)
Anyone have this happen yet? The Carbonfiber Strip just above the glove box is completely twisted and pulling away from the dash. Hard to see in the picture. Not sure if it is just glued or what but I assume it was caused by the warm teps we've had in Chicago. I guess I will be heading to the dealer.

WOW really it's laminated plastic they did not prep the plastic properly or used a lesser quality resins meant for lamination.
I have noticed on Mine that it's a bit cloudy I just did some wrap work and I'll try to show the cloudiness.
Either way this should be covered by the Warrantee.

Exact same thing happened to me. They replaced the carbon fiber piece under warranty.

Took it to the dealer and they ordered a new one. They will call me when it's in. It is covered by warranty which is good because it is a $400 item.

That sucks! This looks like something that will eventually happen to everyone due to a poor design...... Unless they just used crappy glue that day

Hate seeing that. I'm sure they will begin to see more and more complaints, so hopefully it will all be fixed.
