Was that literally a "new car prep"? IOW, customer had just taken delivery (or pre-delivery?)

Is that aftermarket window tint, or just the pictures making the windows look darker in the after shots?

I do like these cars...

Nice job, but like you said, pretty beat up for a new car.

The front of the car is overdone: For a minute, thought it had front end damage...
