All new cars have some paint defects, whether it's rotary or sanding marks, small scratches, etc. "Wobbles" is an interesting term that could mean any number of things.

I've seen videos of brand new Ferrari's, Rolls Royce and Bentley's that needed attention.

I'm baffled by the insistence of some in chucking PS4S' on the car, but ok (maybe they're cheaper than the LTS Goodyears? or more readily available... 🤷‍♂️ ). I suppose keeping the tyre-related handling properties "as designed" hardly matters if you are tearing out the whole suspension anyway.

I assumed it is on Cup 2s and the PS4s are their choice of winter tyres.
Car looks lovely might go and lick their windows and stare at it.

paint wobbles???
That doesnt sound great does it..... when litchfield have to correct the paint finish on a brand new lotus
Take any new car to a detailer for PPF and they will all complain about defects from factory. My F80 was no different

Oh, I get why they swapped out the track-biased tyres (Cup2s in UK winter == nope), but just wonder why you would't use the road tyre made specifically for the car. The PS4 is hardly a winter tyre :)

Interesting that rather than the touring or sports, they've gone for the track suspension option.

Would slicks not be better for track use?
Yes, in the appropriate weather conditions. The Emira FE is not a track car. You might be thinking about the Emira GT4 which is the race-only (not road registered) version?

Will people please stop winding up us April and May 2021 depositors such as myself and @TomE announcing they put an 'early' deposit in at Goodwood and have already gotten their Emira!

:D :) :rolleyes: :LOL:

Ha. No worries. It now suits me but I do chuckle each time.

The Emira FE is NOT a track car , correct, BUT it will be bloody good round short, curvy circuits with the sports suspension set-up particularly. Very good.

Both of the suspension options would be overwhelmed by slicks.
I'm not saying your right or wrong, I have no idea tbh, I'm just wondering how you do having not driven both suspension options on track at all let alone with various tyre options?
