omg wtf, i honestly believe that some half english speaking person on the line was told to put weights on the wheels and misinterpreted...

I hope im wrong on this but damn thats weird, I just can't image why the hell else they would be there.

Edit: OR! maybe that's part of the assembly process and the weights are attached to the brembos and then sent down to the next station where they are removed and placed on the wheel for balancing but some how this car got missed............dude you got me this **** is wierd as ****...

Uhhhhh, yeah...... I guess that one slipped past the QA inspection.

I believe I would be making a phone call or two on that one and ask if they are supposed to be there or why they might have put them there. If nobody can come up with an answer, I would just remove them.

Maybe Number 3, Fbodfather, Davis, and Richard can check their front Brembo's.

I'm on the way to the dealer to let them use it for the week and I'll be sure to ask, not that they'll know but I'll ask anyway. Raining here all week so no big deal.

Done to add extra weight in order to give the Stang and Challenger a fighting chance

Never seen this before, I wouldn't worry too much though, they just peel right off.
Only thing I can guess is that maybe they do a 4 corner balance? Weird regardless.
