  1. Works fine on Chrome. I’d love a little further comment, Richard, as to why you think these aspects on the saloon work less well …? I’ve never seen the problem with them, although the coupe was obviously a much slinkier prospect than the 4 door. Thanks

  2. It works on Safari on an iPhone. The problem with hosting on WordPress is that we’re at their mercy rather.

    I could see that the saloon would look more elegant with those features but then, by comparison, the Coupe would be less so.

  3. On It’s that the coupe does without the plastic strip right under the front lamp and the panel gap is more harmonious. On the saloon it’s a bit crude, a vertical line. On the back the lamps are slimmer and the vertical panel gap is eliminated. The coupe’s rear quarter panel is, admittedly a deeper pressing.

    1. Got it, and you’re absolutely right – details I had not appreciated before, but I do now.
