When you go to that price level, does the 86 become questionable against the likes of a GTI, Audi, BMW?

Too many white popping up on the road. I would have thought red and silver would have been most popular...

Maybe he was watching the 86 behind him and not concentrating on the indicating.

LOL! He changed lanes a couple of times without indicating.

I agree though - too many white ones but then being a pearl colour I think it was always going to be popular. I've read an article somewhere, white is one of the most popular colours right now and they're blaming Apple for it.

Ja. Someone contacted me from a different branch that I also tried, but wanted to sell me a silver, auto. I could have lived with the colour but not the gearbox. This car must be manual.

Indicators are an optional extra on most cars nowadays... Even the 86...

Highly annoying. We don't want to be seen in the same light as BMW drivers.

And Audi drivers... I'm paranoid about indicating - heck if they aren't working I will handsignal!

Same here. I'm really missing the single tap lane change feature. I got used to it with my previous car.
