I'm not sure I follow the damaged goods thing. It's a car still on factory test, still from an accouting point of view " work in progress". They are checking it to ensure it meets the specifications. Suppose a wheel is out of balance, or there is a scratch on the paintwork. They have to declare that? I don't think so. This car has a big scratch on the left rear wing and the left rear wheel is out of balance. poor workmanship perhaps, but not damaged goods.
