Joanna : You are what you drive. An old beat down car with a missing hubb cap and a rusted hood is not a good way to make an impression. However if this was your second car, then that's a different story. Take care of your car, keep it freshly washed, make it smell nice and trust me we won't miss a beat (we'll notice!). Every little detail matters from the color of the car (please stick to one color,no rainbow jobs) to the interior (cloth seats are a bad idea if you own a pet). Keep it simple, classic, elegant and please be kind to the environment!
