We've got all the winter weather you could possibly want over here at the moment, and for the next few days.

Our old car:
(was a 1995 model, this is the closest)

Our current car (is a 1999 model, is practically the same)


Definitely an improvement

That is normal, higher car class and larger car.

I was involved in an accident twice: first with a 1990 Honda Accord without airbags and about 40 km/h collision
Second time with 1999 Daewoo Lanos with airbags and with much lower speed (but exactly the same angle of hit).
In first case nothing happened inside passenger cabin, in second case it was quite damaged and I had to go to hospital for a medical check.

Those two accidents are also a reason that I buy just higher class cars.

And yes, I'm driving Honda Accord from y. 2000.

I dig that. My only accident was with a Ford Ka with no ABS. Had it such a device, the accident itself wouldn't probably happen.

That's good to know. In reality they still hate each other.

"le stink," it said on the home page:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/ear...-gas-leak.html

"another pungent Gallic release" (in the subheading)



Okay, now I'm being good again.

No they don't. Only the ones who don't know a thing about France.

First Dacia commercial for the UK:



The new model has standard ABS+ESP + 4 airbags. And it costs just £ 5995.

@josham, it's quite incorrect to compare safety of a car without airbags to the one of a car with airbags.

And cars sold in Latin America often obtain sensibly different results in crash tests, even those who appear as identical models, due to different body elements applied under the skin.

I have noticed a huge increase in the amount of Romanian cars about here lately (last month or so).

I would even dare say that most of the foreign cars I see now are Romanian, which is a bit odd considering that Romanians don't have full EU rights here untill December I think

Yes, but did the pungent Gallic release reach you?
