say all you want, but I'm a firm believer in stability control after my accident, my car would've easily spun out of control and hit something else if not for VSC, which kept the car going straight after being wack by the lady.

It must have been an older 6...no airbags, nothing! In a new 6 i dont think you would die even at 60mph....

Ya... its an old 6, and it didn't have airbags or any of the new safety features. But keep in mind also that the gentleman was in his early 50's... i'm sure that might have been a factor in the lack of recovery!

If only all cars came with stability control!

... but I dont think the new 6 would survive a crash!

It all depends on how he hit a pole... even the brand new E65 won't protect someone in a (possible?) side impact on a hydro pole (hypothetically). It'll just cut the car in half!

Kinda off topic but cars today IMO are useless and have no real design appeal, personally I hate the way the new 6ers look it takes away from what the original design was all about. If you take an old school car and compare it to today a lot of them spec wise are very similar and the older cars use to be heavier. I simply will never dive a new car cause it looks like every other car out there but that is my opinion.

Unless he was driving that new SUV from China made of rice paper.
But your correct, must have been going more then a few clicks over the limit. Humm might have been the guy I've seen in Miss. Like how many 635's are there right?
