That's what I thought.

At that scale it looks like a spare tire embedded in the roof. I guess it's a sun roof.

Thread: Lower rolling resistance: space saver spare tire donuts @70 psi, or RE92's @ 51 psi

All depends on the tire, of course. These were awful.

YKYAnotEM when you decide the gating factor between the Superbeetle and the XFi is not 30MPG vs 45, but the Beetle's door is 37" long while the Metro is 42".

Ingress/egress, but I still like the paint color better.
