    Engine compartment

    Hey guys,
    Owner of a 17 plus model. Just got the car a few weeks ago, love it so far.

    How high does your engine hatch open up? Is there much resistance?
    Mine seems to not open fully, or seamlessly.

    Cheers,

    Congrats on the new car. Post up some pictures.

    The engine bay hatch should fully release without any effort.

    It’s a hydraulic open. Smooth like butter. I like it more than my huracan.

    I found out the culprit. My lack plastic trim piece that mounts flush against the glass came loose. I had to re-snap it back into place. Now, works as advertised.

    Thanks,
