It's shiny red and came with a Thule roof rack....Our new car is less than a month old. Still can smell that new car smell.. What do you do about sweat laiden cyclists and new upholestry. Maybe a quick method to rid the car of 'new car smell.' Or don't you care. I hate floppy towels strewn about the car seat and they are probably not effective anyway. Plastic covers over upholestry . Never.
