    Losing both legs would be a serious gutter...but personally I'd rather have that than lose both arms, now that would be an extreme nuisance

    Going blind's my biggest fear!

    You need to cut back on the pron and diy then, I heard it could lead to blindness.

    I wouldn't miss looking at it Nige - it's not 'conventionally attractive', we all know this...but if I couldn't drive it then I'd be in serious difficulty

    You heard wrong, all it does is blur your vision a bit if you DIY a lot - that's why my contact lenses are half-an-inch thick

    I'll be completely honest & step up to the plate & admit I actually quite like the 1 series coupe, but that horrible shoe looking thing just makes me cringe everytime I see it

    It took me a while to get used to

    When they released it I thought about a year later they put the 3.0 in and I started down the path to forgiveness. I much prefer the coupe, lookswise, but the hatch fits my circumstances better - occasionally I have to cart stuff that just won't fit in the 2 door

    Still a happy customer...merry driftmas!

    Theyve redesigned the barriers in the uk to try and stop this.

    I can handle that, sensible thought process tbh with need for space & 5 drs, prob would do the same & thinking about anyway with my new addition next year (99.99999% sure)

    Driftmas, lmfao genius, lol

    Anyone reckon that an engine in the front would have helped the driver not get quite so chopped-into-three-bits?

    I read somewhere its happens when the car realises a collision and keeps the dials on the same position as when the crash happened so investigators can see how fast the car was going at impact (this happens when the ecu is damaged as well)
