Beautiful car. Love the wheels and redline tires. Nice choice. What part of the world are you from?

Re: my Winter upgrades, wheels, tires and more.

Thank you!
I would say 90 percent of the people - mostly the older generation - find these vehicles great with thumbs up, the remaining 10 percent - mostly Greta Thunberg or other green planet friends, scold them with their thumbs down.
But still, the community of American Vehicle Friends is growing here...

Slick ride. Love the stance. Super clean.
The spacing/distance between the top of the rims and the fender molding is just right!

Great looking car. Nice.

Tighten it till it strips and back it off a quarter turn.

Ausgezeichnet! Ich liebe die Farbe.

That’s about the extent of my high school German.
