But it's not the car; it's the rather uncool accessories it came with - a pair of fluffy dice that are a little bit different.

Of course, she could do without the pair of fluffy dice hanging from the rear view mirror, and she's not pleased that her mum borrowed money to buy it, not to mention the fact that Izzy's wages barely cover the insurance payments.
