Louis XV – During the early 18th century Louis XV or more likely, his talented and cultured mistress, Madame de Pompadour, sculpted this heavier style into something considerably more delicate and feminine, introducing the most French of attributes – the curve. From 1723 – 1760 these curves took on a rather frivolous manner of their own resulting in the style called Rococo, where symmetry was lost and nature took over as branches, leaves, icicles and waterfalls were the favoured decorative motifs.
The final upgrade would be the inclusion of heavy-duty car mats. The workhorse in any vehicle, car mats feature tall outer ridges that contain the nastier, runnier messes that would otherwise soak into the carpeting of your floorboards. They’re available in 1-piece or 2-piece designs and computer-designed for a precision fit, providing maximum coverage without covering up those essential floor controls.

Louis XVI – By the time the new king Louis came along, direction changed again and the wild, silly curves of the Rococo were replaced with the elegant and formal lines of neo-Classicism. Pompeii and Hurculaneum had been excavated earlier in the century and the appreciation for classic Roman and Greek artefacts was reflected in the interior and exterior styles.
The new Astra also can come with a special bike rack attached to the bumper. It is almost hidden when not in use, but can be slid out from its compartment like a drawer and hold two bikes. This means you don’t have to worry about lifting the bike up onto a roof rack that you have to install yourself, or attaching any other type of bike rack.
Seats come in all shapes and sizes. Beware of light colours as these can be very difficult to keep clean (although they do look fantastic. It is beneficial to choose similar colours and materials to the other surfaces in your car so bear this in mind when planning the car interior. Retro looks tend to last much longer than modern quirky looks but will not be as revolutionary.
