I saw that too and it was a very enjoyable review! But disappointing that when he mentioned the Tipo 4 cars he omits the 164!

There is a huge price range in these (you mean car cover, right?). I have seen them made to order and size and they can be standard size and fitting many general mid-sized sedans.

Re: QV24 Plastic Side Panel for Front Seats

It is complicated. I have asked around in Thailand but a reliable, customer-friendly 3D printing service does not exist yet to my knowledge. Maybe I was a bit too early with my search. I would expect such businesses to spring up sooner rather than later. To do it myself, I don't see how I could affo...

Great that you did that. Are you thinking of making a small series (or is the workshop capable of making more duplicates)? If others have a need.

Re: QV24 Plastic Side Panel for Front Seats

Are you the only one with this option/seats in HK? If not, you could ask your fellow Recaro owner if you could digitally scan the cover in his car and then print it. I know easier said than done but I think we will more and more have to get used to this idea in the future if we want rare parts for o...

Re: 'Open garage'

I don't have experience with the original 500 but certainly with the original Mini and that was the same thing; a 1.90m tall guy could comfortable get into a mini, not hit his head on the ceiling and drive the car. Sometimes they changed the position of the sliding rails and he would almost look out...

Re: 'Open garage'

Indeed, that looks awesome. Great photos; thanks for sharing! Amazing to see the original and new Fiat 500 side by side! Although I kind of know the answer but have we all become giants that that 2018 Fiat is what we now consider a small car?
