Undocumented Changes

I checked it after the 1.16 update and It was still broken. Just to be sure, I did a quick search on YT and found this video uploaded 18 hours ago:

At 1:09, you can see the driver still moving its arm unnaturally.

Wasn't 1.16 the update that introduced the E30?
I have noticed that there is some changes in the handling of the bmw e30.
Since 1.15 i was only driving the e30 and tryed to build a setup that makes the car enjoyable to me.
I was on sport medium front and sport soft rear. With 1.17 this setup dont work anymore, too much grip! :D
Now i drive the same setup with comfort soft front & rear and it feels good!
Maybe someone can confirm that, or maybe they have changed something in the tyres? I cant say because only was driving the e30 all the time.
Has the interior camera been moved down? Noticed yesterday few cars had quite low interior view angle and went to adjust them just to notice they were set to default "0" and both highest and lowest positions seem to be a lot lower now. :confused:

Or have they adjusted the size of the driver (due to e30 arm issue) as my driver looked tiny next to gr. B gt-r this morning.. :lol:
Usually when the GT-R GT500 was put into livery editor, the chrome decals above the headlights would disappear as seen on this livery here


Looks like 1.17 fixed that issue
