    Welcome from the English Riviera,
    Your paintwork is lovely and reflective. I have a silver bug and can't get those sort of reflections on mine! I can see you in most of the photos taking the photo. Your the surface is like a mirror. My car is only 2 months old, and the salesman at the dealership when we bought it challenged me to get a nice sunset shot along the door reflection, but I just can't get anywhere near it. Maybe the paint colour makes a difference, or have you specially treated it? I have got nice shots of it on the beach though...

    My car is resprayed black magic pearl (LC9Z) which is not an option here in the states. Its a factory vw color that comes on 20th gti's and mk4 R32'sMaybe that's the reflection your talking about as the car has totally different black color.
