Only if they are a small resolution and colour depth. Or downloaded from Facebook as Facebook does a half decent job of making the file sizes small enough without making the image look small or blurred.

I've still only done 400 miles in the car and have found there's a lot of cabin noise (I think the seal on the passenger windscreen/door may need some adjustment), the exhaust is a bit boomy, the auto gearbox isn't the best (I know, it's 20 years old) and LHD in the UK is going to take more getting used to than I expected But just look at it! I love the power and the fact it keeps pulling at high speeds, and despite the previous comment I love the LHD experience - if you're going to do it, do it properly!


I know all those feelings (kinda...) as I just traded in my comparatively normal 1998 Mustang for a 2002 Camaro Z28 (because I can't yet afford the C5 I want) which at least has the same engine and transmission (and currently wheels too!), and is also a soft-top. So it's fast, but rattly, windy, noisy, and SPECIAL! Smile

The Mustang was my first LHD car for daily use, and you soon get used to it. Toll boths, 'drive-thrus', and the like become interesting, but I find the ability to accurately hug the kerb in narrow areas makes up for the oddities elsewhere.
