Lol. Good one.

I'll bow out.... since you've resorted to name calling.
We've all seen numerous times here who the real "Tool" is.

Again, congrats on your new car.

Dealer principle commented on how classy I handled the situation. Im keeping the car and happy to have it, mis-stitch and all.. Amusing to see the people commenting on how they would/should handle things. Typical of a cross section of life. Diff strokes for diff folks. Dealership has been very accommodating, admitting their screw up, and ordering new pieces from CXX that will be here ASAP. If this doesn't happen in 8 weeks I will be given the pieces of an incoming car. Also was given compensation/future purchase options and yellow door straps to help out for free.
Perfect...it will all be worked out...not the end of the world....

Correct... and there are about six or seven threads on this, starting from several months ago.

If this incident which is easily fixable supposedly “ruins” your car and causes an emotional breakdown, then there’s a strong argument that you’re buying the car for the wrong reasons. This is the first time I’ve ever heard that a wrong piece of stitching “ruined” a RS. Are you buying it to drive it, or to show off your threading at the local Cars and Coffee/Show and Tell?

RS owners certainly have evolved over the last decade....
Lol, that's for sure!

How good are you at detecting sarcasm?

I have to agree. Why would the GM comment on how classy you are? That's bizarre. Was he a former news anchor for San Diego? Do you have a library in your house with rich mahogany wood?

It's no different than telling the 5-year old how *brave* he was when he got his shots. Which leads me to this.... anytime you think you're going to have a mental breakdown because (1) some stitching is wrong, or (2) your car is delayed at the port, or (3) the price of paint to sample went up, or (4) the PTS option delayed your car, or (5) someone at your local Saturday morning Show and Tell has cooler deviated stitching than you, please refer to the following calming techniques. Just substitute "getting a shot" for one of the 5 aforementioned issues.

This thread is kind of entertaining and I’ll admit probably embarrassing for the OP. I know he posted in a public forum so he should be prepared for all the sh*t he’s getting, but I’m sure he was just emotionally reacting to the stitching mistake. Enjoy your car, man, and the stitching will be fixed. It’s all good.

Well, feel free to stitch it back together.

I think the common thread running through most these posts is that the gentleman lost every strand of credibility when he let his emotions unravel.

For sure; rather than dig deeper and snipe at those poking fun at him ... he should just own it and admit he overreacted. We all do it at times.

What's the difference - really - between ravel and unravel?

It has caused you to be really pissed - again over a stitch. Extrapolate this to other areas in life - food, watches, people etc. You will never be truly happy unless things are 100% perfect. Is that a great way to go through life? And then are you only truly happy when stuff is perfect or just satisfied? Maybe others cant live up to your excellence that you provide in your line of work.
Good advice OP - it is a temporary problem. Enjoy car and wait for fix. Hopefully you can move on - many thing you expect or look perfect still can fail in the future. Just an idea - start speccing out your next car.

Hahaha, CW you are quickly becoming one of my favorites around here. Please keep it up.

OP, I hope your minor situation is resolved as quickly as possible. In the meanwhile, please enjoy your incredible new toy. Keep in mind how lucky you are to own such a car and to be in such a position in life where a few mismatched threads leads to this level of disorder. Cheers!
