    Default 458 Wing Mirror glass wobble

    Driving the car home yesterday I noticed the image in the wing mirrors was shaky.

    So washing the car today i noticed the glass doesn't appear to be fixed in either mirror very firmly and tapping it will make it move.

    Is this a problem with my mirrors or is it a common trait?

    I asked them to loctite the screws after the second time it happened.

    Ferrari needs to make it a 151 point check for approved.

    Hit em hard with the ‘approved car’ and disappointed bit.

    I have bought private / indie and approved - no difference except warranties.

    In my experience most of the trade does the bare minimum to sell a car as it is endemic in the way they view their margin and their business model.

    Absolutely. It's a lot of money for things to need a bit of attention. Supposedly an approved car should be better, you all pay the premium for it. Don't let it place any negatives on the car for you though. A few niggles can be sorted out
