It was... okay... terrible gear shift sucked the fun out of playing in manual.
What idiot stuck a front spoiler-lippy-frufru on a car in such a way that people can’t see it and will have no idea it’s there unless you’re familiar with the design?
I’m far too lazy a person to go through making my worthy photos look good, and even those I do bother with I’m rarely pleased with end result.

When out for lunch, saw this swanky Messerschmitt KR201 parked just off of Portobello Road. Pink (light peach?)with snake skin.
A Ford Mustang Sutton CS800
A matt black wrap, really?
...But pretty rare. That’s not a Beetle, it’s a Type 14a Hebmuller.
