Every time I read about another issue I cringe because I know that will happen soon. Running lights, radio, valve pulls and loose storage door behind drivers door. Can't wait. Disappointed in FR.
After having issues with several new model/versions of cars, I found it is best to wait a year on a new model so the bugs are sorted.
You happen to be an early adopter doing a beta test, so hang in there.
We ordered a first year (2011) MINI Countryman S that should not have left the factory, but MINI let it anyways, so it does happen in the car industry, too.
The MBS is a great chassis and once you get those items worked out, you will enjoy it. My only major issues on the R were suspension/stability related and just needed to upgrade a few items in that regard. SumoSprings are my #1 mod and have really made this top heavy MBS a tight, road worthy machine. In addition, they even keep it very stable when parked at a site and my bigfoots no longer scrape on driveways, etc.. I am thinking they would be a major help for any "W" out there.
Best of luck,
