    I've seen it or very similar before somewhere and it struck me, just how many people have cameras in their windows.

    Second class ride is better than a first class walk, I had a Lada, fantastic in the winter months heater gets so hot and had a basically Fiat engine and never let us down.

    Many years ago against my wishes my mother bought one new. She drove it home and said she thought there was a problem with the steering. She never drove that car again when I told her that's how they all were. She rang the dealer who sold it to her and got them to come and collect it.

    There can be only one conclusion...people who have cameras on their dashboards have accidents.

    It's quite common in Russia and China, plus other countries that the insurance company insists on a camera being installed. One reason is the large amount of people that throw themselves in front of cars for insurance claims and another is because of fraudulent claims.

    I remember those things. The van was £550, the saloon £650 and the estate £750 new, if I remember right. There was a dealer close by us and then they went over to the Polonez dealership. That was another disaster :Eeek:

    Well if you do go over, remember not to drive above 55mph on any roads, and like india and china a lot of roads away from towns are no more than a hard dirt surface with a bit of stone, concrete or tarmac thrown over them and are very pot-holey
