    I mean there were cars like Lancia Thema and some MPVs from Chrysler rebranded as Lancia or FIAT.

    Can we make it a forum rule to shut up about paint scratches ?

    there is more threads about paint scratches and dirty cars than there are mods for the bolide

    I know. It's just that the Thema didn't have the V8s the 300/Charger duo is known for. It only had the 3.6 Pentastar V6 (with the same ZF 8HP) and a VM Motori 3.0 V6 (with an old-fashioned 5-Speed Auto). It was very toned down compared to the 300/Charger, that's what I say.
    The other models (the Voyager, the Flavia and the Freemont) are just too hard to see without swearing! :p

    I agree with your idea. However, it wouldn't work. Look how many new people still bump threads or whine about outdated mods not working
    --- Post updated ---
    Ok. So now I have a question. let's say there is a content drop now would it be 0.24.1.2 or 0.24.1?

    The Pigeon didn't get 3D taillights. Do keep in mind that we haven't seen the headlamps yet.

    My only concern with the Bolide remaster is the air intake. From a functionality standpoint, the Bolide looks (at least so far) like it would have overheating issues, since the only air intakes are either the front, where air has to travel the length of the car to get to the engine, or the intake on the b pillar. Having the air intake on the front of a mid engine car is just... inefficient. Then there's the one on the side. The intake on the B pillar I just don't get. yes there's real world cars that have vents in the same place, but for the bolide, the air vent would have to be really small as to not take away too much structural support for the roof, plus it would end up reducing visibility. That stuffs minor, and can change when we learn more about the car.

    The only other thing (now this is entirely my own opinion and you don't have to agree) is the design of the intake. Out of all the 80s sports cars, out of all the elegant and stylish ways car manufacturers would integrate an air intake on the side of the body for the engine, why would you possibly choose something that looks like the tiny hood scoop taken from a wrx and slapped on the b pillar as an afterthought? The likelihood of there being another mid engine 80s sports car added to the game is very low since the devs don't want to oversaturate one car niche while leaving another neglected. So why was that the choice for what could very well be the only 80s mid engine car? The argument of not wanting to look like a real world car doesn't really work when you look at the similarities of some of the BeamNG cars to real world cars, and besides statistically speaking you are more likely to end up unintentionally copying the intake of a front engine car, since there's a significantly larger amount of them in the real world. I just feel a little disappointed seeing it, since its the lesser choice both functionally and aesthetically, and that the devs aren't going to change it unless they have two separate bodies since it's already the established design for the car. Once again, this is just my opinion of one certain part of the car, and in the grand scheme of things it is very minor, but since the Bolide's remaster is coming up this is the only time to say this. Other than that, everything that the devs have changed for the remaster has only made the car look better and made it feel like it's going to be more fun to drive.

    I agree, but I just feel like having the 80s sports car of the game having an intake like that instead of an integrated one on the side that would make the car look more elegant and pleasant to look at seems odd. It's not what I would have done personally, which I know is just a minor stylistic choice that is just my own opinion. I know there was a reason, and a vote by a group of people within the company to approve the design, but it's just my opinion.
    It's not something that important in the end. I'm not loosing sleep, tossing and turning struggling to wrap my head around the decisions of people I've never met. Everyone has an opinion of what would look good, and this is just mine.

    95% of the engine cooling came from its radiators (water-cooled engine) witch are located in the front of the car, the lateral air ducts are meant give some fresh air to the engine bay itself

    Well my argument doesn't really have ground to stand on anymore. Funny how I thought I know enough about cars to have an opinion that's better than the people who study cars as their job to make a realistic simulation game about cars.
