Wasn't this a recall that was taken care of by McLaren? I remember having the same issue, but I'm not sure if it was taken care of under my warranty or because it was an issued recall.

Current: 2012 McLaren MP4-12C - 3M Gloss Storm Gray / Carbon Black
Past: '14 Audi R8 V10 / '12 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante / '11 Rolls-Royce Ghost Mansory / '10 Audi R8 V10 / '10 Porsche 911 Turbo Vorsteiner / '09 Audi R8 V8 / '09 Nissan GTR / '09 Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG / '08 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera

what happens when the passenger occupancy sensor goes bad? my passenger seat thinks someone is sitting in it when it is empty and consequently i have to plug the seat belt in when nobody is in the passenger seat.

From @ima2nr link above "Passenger Seat Airbag Occupancy Sensor repair kit from the dealer for around 200.00"
It is the labor cost/profit that determines the $5K

KarKid,

I looked up my invoice where I purchased the Pass Seat Occupancy Sensor update kit back in July 2017.

McLaren Part# 11N3568CP
"IEE Upgrade Kit Electric Seat"

my Dealer Price was well below 200.00 (I expect retail would have been around 200.00 at the time)



As you all know I did a DIY write up on how to install the kit, and I stated then the price was around 200.00


WELL!!!! Fast forward 2 years and McLaren has added a "X 10" to the price! McLaren did this (not the dealer, McLaren sets the price) is charging 2,681.00 Retail for this part!!!


THAT'S BLATANTLY PRICE GOUGING the LOYAL OWNERS !!!!



It gets worse, unfortunately... I price checked a few other items I bought around the same time in 2017 and most were at least 3x the original price from 2 yrs ago...

This is not a good trend, and I fear it indicates McLaren does not care if their legacy cars are abandoned in the used car market place.

- 2012 McLaren MP4-12C Graphite Gray (his)
- 2012 McLaren MP4-12C Brilliant White (hers)
- 2017 Alfa Romero Giulia Quadrifoglio

It appears McLaren is following the lead of big pharma companies!

wow price gouging on parts for the older cars to try to get customers to throw their arms up to move into new ones due to cost effectiveness of parts.
