Thanks for this post. I have one. I read what you said about the cornering lamps and dismissed it. I got mine last year so I thought maybe this was an upgrade. I was already so impressed with the car and Jakob's work. No way I said then forgot about it. Later on for the heck of it I took up the car, turned the headlights on and turned the wheel. I almost crapped my pants. The lights are so bright and focused into the corner just like the real thing. Reading more of the post I decided to try the brake lights. I almost fell over.
The only instructions that came with the car relates to putting tape on the battery and how to insert and remove battery from the engine bay.
I support the group buy idea. Jakob is a cool and HONEST guy.
Big Windy, what other surprises does the car have?
BTW: I have the AW with CF roof. AWESOME model and WORKMANSHIP.
