@whoistheleader it’s nice, doesn’t block the forward view, which is half the fun of a fold down windshield, but should keep you head where it belongs if you do roll.
When my father in-law had an fj40 driving with the windshield down, nothing in front of you, was awesome. It’s the closest you can get to a motorcycle experience on 4 wheels.
This car wasn't bad at all. It has cheap 'carpet mats' not velour, so they are flimsy and don't give up dirt, etc... all that easy. The boot also doesn't have a liner and had been treated poorly.
But I'm always extra cautious when kids are involved so a full interior anti bacterial wipe is a must.
With child seats I'm always extra cautious and ask permission to remove them. With this being a ISOFIX attached Maxi-Cosi Mica. It's simple to remove, clean and put back.
With being able to remove the seat I can get access to the seat base for cleaning and lift the rear seat base to clean underneath it. I'm always amazed just how much crap can get under the rear seats.

You need a National Identifier as was the case some years ago.
A Belgian vehicle that didn't have a National Identifier was caught on camera (turns out several times) speeding in England.
The camera used the licence plate number to send a speeding ticket to the, what they thought was the offender, U.K. registered owner of the vehicle with the same plate.
The owner contested it and it went back and forth.
Because the camera only took a picture of the rear licence plate, there was no context of vehicle. When the DVLA was approached with that number plate. The DVLA simply gave that county authority the information.
The owner in the end showed proof it was his vehicle, because the U.K. vehicle it shared the same number, was an electric film float that was in a vehicle museum and on a good day not capable of 20mph. The proof shown was of security camera footage from inside the museum looking at the vehicle parked up behind other vehicles.
Some vehicles that travel to America for whatever reason may be given a diplomatic plate.
But that depends what state and how and where it arrived.
@pip-bip My dad had one of those from 93-96. They were not good cars when they were new. Interesting, but a pretty terrible car. Clumsy handling, a wet noodle for a chassis, all the cowl shake over the smallest imperfections in the road, a Fischer-price like interior (but less durable), a comically bad top mechanism and so very slow. An NA Miata is a vastly superior car in every possible way.
