If you had my car and wanted a personalized plate, would you do something less subtle like M3EATER?

Probably, but I met my first genuinely rude person on this entire trip, some Italian clerk at the train station who refuses to me a reservation unless I pay extra.

I think the term "clean" is painfully abused in describing cars, but that car was as clean as it gets, imo. The wing works great with the lines, and the flares/splitter are aggressive without being obvious at all.

That's a very well executed look to me.

In Rome? Yeah, they're not the friendliest, generally speaking. That sucks about the train thing....they probably have some embezzlement scheme running.

Italy just doesn't like me. It didn't want me here, now it doesn't want me to leave.

Is there any difference between the German spoken in Austria and the German in Germany? There's probably regional differences but, can I get away with kindergarten German there?
