Soon there should be test results available for safety systems.
The German TÃœV tested these and as soon as I have the results I will post them for you.

I guess there will be some surprises....

Just for the ones, who aren´t from Germany.

The TÜV is an organisation that is making security checks for almost erverything you could imagine. They check whether babyphones send out radarwaves that make your little bastard go insane, whether you could jumo a hundred thousand times on your sofa or whether you risk your live by using a scooter bought at a discount outlet. Your car has to pass a security check of the TÜV every second year, otherwise you aren´t allowed to drive it anymore.

They should know what they are doing. Not just some guys towing their safety to a tree and letting themselves fall on their butt to find out whether it releases under load.
