for all those, who know all that boring financing and insurance stuff and are much more interested in the hardware
here some more pics
especially on dark colours those sun-glasses-taillights look pretty smart (they look ten times better in reality than on these pics)
the look pretty integrated, making the rear of the car appear even wider
this is what they look like at night (i.e. lights switched on)
this last pic is the result of many attempts to get just the right moment, when then indicator lights (they have to be in yellow in europe!) were on, to give you the impression what it looks like)
and finally a close up of one
what i cannot depict here is the change of the driving behaviour of the car
the alteration of the underpinnings for the european market seems to be what is available as an option called FE04 in the states
recalibreted springs and shocks and altered anti sway bars
the car feels like on giant go-card or formular one car
which mean that its manners (while being driven hard) are amazingly good in terms of grip and stability
the downside seems to be the nvh chapter
a lot of carmags praised the car for its reformulated setup.
in terms of driving it at the limit, i would agree
for every day use i guess i would prefer the softer us-setup
but look like i am the only one
my husband instantly fell in love with it.
he considered it perfect in any aspect...
and the grin was there still this morning, more than 12 hours after our testdrive yesterday!!!
