The doors are worked on in a separate line & it's only fitted back on the car after the interior is totally done. Wht happened is they mixed up with a car with same colour but different spec (i.e. no HK) so the wrong door is fitted.
I guess this may be caused by a door being out of sequence due to some problems (i.e. need for rework due to problems during door assembly or simple mistake such as swapped labelling).
Surprising that nobody from factory final qc to pdi managed to pick that up.
