One of the new things that's been added in CMS 2021 is the ability to add a car wash to your garage complex. In CMS 2018, cars couldn't be dirty, but you could buy a piece of equipment that enabled you to spend a nominal amount of money (I think it was $100) to detail the car, which restored the interior textures that weren't replaceable parts to 100% condition (the converse of using the Welder to restore the car's frame condition to 100%).
In the new game, the detailing kit is part of the car wash, along with a pressure washer, and washing a car and detailing the interior are free. Which is nice. A little bonus service for the (theoretical, never-seen) customers. Presumably it'll be a bit handier when the time arrives that I'm buying and restoring my own cars.
Also, the new game has electric cars in it. These belong to made-up brands and are Legally Distinct from real-world models, in the same way that, say, the Salem GW 500 is totally not a late-model Ford Fiesta. I think, in order to capture the proper experience of being a small, independent shop being asked to repair an electric car, the devs should have made it so you couldn't buy parts for them from the store, but had to use some kind of sketchy-ass grey market where everything costs a damn fortune and may or may not arrive in 100% condition.
