You do realize HE did not write the article right? Those were not his words, but in fact that of a marketing person from Ridetech whose job it is to fluff up the car as all magazines do. Those people take liberties, that shouldn't make it open season on the car owner as was done here.
You make a bit of a point, it was Ridetech and not the owner. Criticism goes to Ridetech.
Lots of reasons cars end up as they do. Mine will have warts, I doubt if I'll supply photos of them for any magazine articles or advertisements though.
