Very cool, that VW one!

I have two reports...

Report the first: spotted a lovely blue Fisker Karma in town today. In my small city! Parked at the house where the only Bentley in town lives. No photo, but man are those cars sexy.

Report the second: the first Mitsubishi Mirage has arrived in town. (Closest Mitsu dealership is ~100 km away, so that takes some commitment.) It's owned by the girlfriend of a friend of a friend. I hope to get a chance to talk to her about it.
