Opel is one of the most common brands in sweden with volvo, saab, vw and audi.

In countries like UK,USA and Australia Opel is sold as Vauxhall, Cadillac Catera and Holden. Do these brands sell in the phillipines ?
nope, it's not considered an executive car here. BMW, AUDI, Volvo & MBenz are the country's exec.cars.. I had only seen a Cadillac here twice in my entire life, maybe Cadillac is being sold in grey market..

Back to Opel, quite a competitive design, and nice interiors. But it's a cheap car here if you'll buy as second hand. Just like Chevrolet Optra.. Because parts and services are available BUT limited.

A 1999-2003 Opel Astra shares the same price with the 1993-1995 Honda Civic which means Opel is way cheaper.. While the 2004-2007 Chevy Optra shares the same price with 1999-2001 Honda Civic...

@KiwiGuy: seems You got intresting combination of japanese, australian and european cars on strets over there. Nice Like the views in the cars background too

And wow! Brooklands (not a Mulsanne) That's an extremely rare spot even here in Europe. Except for Monaco I don't recall seeing any even during few days trips to London, Paris, Rome. Since we're at Bentleys, Continental GT is defietely the most common (or, I should say: "the least uncommon") here in Poland. Some shots from my city (*again - marked taken from exoticcars.pl):

Yeah Bentleys are rare almost everywhere. I can only remember seeing one or two in my entire life, and that was actually in Växjö, Sweden where I live

Only one Bentley dealer in all sweden, 1-2 cars sold per year. I don't think I ever saw a Bentley here.

Older Rolls-Royce are more common, usually owned by limousine-service companies.

Fiat Campagnola, didn't know this car even existed. Looks like they had Range-Rover in mind, when designing this car. The popemobile is based on a Fiat Campagnola.
Also how are you supposed to see the licenseplate ? Those letter are hardly visible even close up.

In France I saw a Peugeot 504 cabriolet, never saw one at home.

Cabriolets in general are very uncommon in sweden due to the climat.

Front license plate in italy isn't/wasn't so much important and during the years we discussed a lot to remove it

Seen today in Växjö

Volvo Amazon in someone's garden. I love these cars and can't resist to take a picture of them. It doesn't matter where they are. Even if they're in someone's garden I will picture them

Those cars are very rarely seen during the winter, but in the summer a lot of people drive around with cars like this

Not this time This is as close as I can get:





Virtually no old Ferraris here, mostly late models. There are some hardtop Mondials in Poland (I'd love to own a T-model), but very likely not a single convertible.
