Do the cars seem overly bright to you? I'm talking external paint and chrome. Seems a little nuclear with my settings. A lot of detail in the cockpit is crushed with use of pure black textures too. Might try some replacements and tweaks as I love this little thing. I've always had a soft spot for fat, squat little compacts. I'll do more paints too.
The Pandem is a little 'spinny' under braking - just brake balance or something more sinister?
Can anyone suggest a good shifting animation?
I'm no expert but I've made some paints (and added rear/front plates) for this little devil :
(there's a coupla more)
Also separated and painted the front / rear bumper / grille as well, they shouldn't share the same colour as the body. My 'expertise' ends there ahah.
