I understand your headlight comment but feel it's a little out of date. The headlight design has aged well, I agree they were a 'bit much' when the car was first released.

As for the white interior, do I look like I have issues keeping cars clean??

;)

Haha yes well. White interior is just personal preference due to my laziness. Those V10s sound ridiculous with a decent exhaust.
