Rich, those yellow stripes look great - they work much better than the red stripes. Like Jared mentions, it's all the little details.
Because when you spend a silly amount of money on a silly, trivial thing that will help you not one jot, you are demonstrating that you have a soul and a heart and that you are the sort of person who has no time for Which? magazine. – Jeremy Clarkson

You know Richard, I love how clean and simple the car looks with all the goodies tucked away and hidden! Beautiful work as always!

Well, a long day of driving the Coupe today, net up with Shinji (member here) and followed him up to a place in the mountains called Okutama, I think it was, had a blast driving up there, it was far, but lots of fun!! It was my first meeting with Shinji, very nice guy and has just as nice a 510, very clean 4 door. Got to see a few other makes and models too, there were about 4 or 5 510's there, and a host of others, I will post a few pics here and the rest on Facebook or Photobucket, anyway, enjoy the pics!!

That grey 4 door with the black wheels is beautiful.
With a black Golf spoiler it'd be near perfect.

NICE! I like the mountains and the roads! the reflectors on the road look a bit tall, :shock: almost like an air dam can get damaged, on a lowered car... That silver car has a nice stance to it.
