The LED look really cool. I didn't drive much in the night, only a little on motorway and city. Will have to see how they work on normal 1x2 roads. The car makes light height adjustments automatically depending on daylight intensity, driving speed. On daylight it only switches the daylight LEDs on, but I saw, if entering a tunnel, it automatically switches low-beam on too.

I think on motorways it sets them higher (if driving over 110 km/h), also letting them lower if it senses cars in front, to not blind them. I only have to switch high-beam on/off if needed.

Of course I can also set manually daylight, low-beam, fog lights front and rear manually if I want them, or leave it at Auto.

Today, I think I saw for the first time another Leon 3, it looked liked mine, with LEDs and stuff, but was red.

Given the side of signals, I'd say it's a one-way road

I personally hate who parks on the wrong side

Why? I park where I can. Usually I can't pick where I'd like to park, there are too many parked cars already.

Main reason is that getting in and out is a terrible manoeuvre, against oncoming traffic and with bad visibity for merging back on the right side. Basically it is driving on the wrong side of the road and should be punished the same way.

Plus, the car's rear reflectors are meant for making it visible at night; on the front there are no reflectors.

Just swap the car and park it on the damn right side

You presumably have been driving in your car, unless you've been on the roof. Also, overtaking only applies when both vehicles are moving. In this case, you have passed a Lamborghini.

You should not take everything so seriously.

What do you think about Fiat 500? My gf absolutely loves it.
There is a car dealer on our way home from work, and every time she shows them to me and tells me she wants one. There is even a pinkish/violet one now, even better


http://home.mobile.de/home/dealerHom...#des_179615604

Anyway, there are many 500s on the streets here...

If she wants the car for the aesthetics, then okay. If she wants for easy of maneuverability, then it is not a good option. Toyota Aygo/Citroen C1 are much better on the "small-easy-to-park-and-cheap" car range.
