    Nice pics - but never had you as a post-whore /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    looks almost A4 size in the first pic. Don't really like the rear shot of same car - the rear lights look strange.

    Those indicators look very odd stuck on the sides of the front bumper. Is that a legal requirement in America? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/noidea.gif

    It's strange, but they adopted the European way (that we had eons ago) to have orange indicators. They normally have the brake light flashing as their indicators (red flashing light). Still see a few of them over here from the Air Force bases. European models seem to have become more subtle and hiding the indicator when not in use.

    OK, they looked good in isolation, but against the real mcCoy ( with seven split spokes ) then they look..., well rather average /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/noidea.gif

    Add an orange indicator and roof rack and ship her to America and you guys beat up on the beloved Sportback /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/angel.gif

    BTW - those wheels and the rack are only available as an accessory. And yes, the use of the surfboard is such a cliche. More of us would want a roof rack for bikes or skis. I guess we have to be happy with that rack since we don't get roof rails /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif
