I'm glad they kept the rear tails in the classic L shape. and I'm all for the new ti's all red tails.

as for the front, I dont like it, but I dont hate it..

Its an 330 cD, meaning its a diesel, and for some reason, they all have mufflers like that.

The reason they have the tip of the muffler like that is for the smoke to hit the ground and not cause discomfort to the other drivers when they have their windows down.
