Yep, and the pedestrian safety regs there are also the reason for some of the ugly front ends.

Agreed. Because of course when you are hit by a speeding new Ferrari or Bentley it's going to feel like jumping into goose down!

Politicians..

Actually, a lot of new cars, like the new E-class have sensors so that when you hit a pedestrian. The hood comes up, enlarging the distance between the hood and the engine. So that the pedestrian has some sort of crash zone before hitting the engine.

Do pedestrians get hit THAT often in Europe? I thought they had much better drivers than the US?

I don't think they get hit that more often. But I bet the people on this forum who have been to Amsterdam, Paris and Rome will agree with me that crossing the street doesn't necessarily involve watching the traffic lights.

+1

but once you get into Italy this game gets taken to a whole new level.. One time in Rome I felt like I was playing a really fast game of frogger (and felt the need to put other people between me and upcoming cars as a buffer


Anyways, the car is starting to grow on me.. A bit too much car for me though, i like them more nimble and smaller...

The car is growing on me, too. In fact, among the Rolls, Maybach, and the Mulsanne, I think I like the Mulsanne best.
