Aftermarket for Volkswagens took a different path here, with some accessories which used to be more popular elsewhere becoming easier to spot in Brazil now due to newer generations being more influenced by foreign trends.

I can't wait for the masks to quit being enforced on some places in Brazil too. Maybe I'm gonna keep some camo ones I got, just to use whenever it seems convenient to me.
