That's annoying.

Not Bavarian, it's from Stuttgart. So, Baden Wurttemberg if you want to get technical.

Yup. I should just put my halogens in. Although I don't mind the LED brake lights. They're a bit brighter and light up faster so that's a plus safety wise. I've been nearly rear ended enough times so anything to give the moron behind me an advantage is a good thing.

Meh, if kalim could do the coding on the front, I'd pay him dinner to do it.

I'm gonna have him code the double impulse lights at some point so I'll have him do it then, that way I have the option. What I wish I had were the amber versions of what I have now. Especially for the rear turn signals. The chrome coated bulbs are too dim IMO.

Also, both of your guesses suck. The Panamera looks like a clubbed seal. And we've already established that I want a Carrera S coupe. Probably some dark colour with that peanut butter-coloured leather.

Brown lights for brown people. How fitting.
