As the boss of our solobugas car repair shop, it’s of course my duty to take care of this car and the cars of the co-director and the manager (still, they newer showed up at my shop, but they will for sure). This summer for example, the front brakes, the exhaust system and the rear suspension have been completely changed. My buga is ready for the next WINTER SEASON, muhahahaaaaaaaaa
