By any chance, do you know how testing in EU differs from testing in the US?

Was thinking the same thing....and counting how many wasted cars. Ouch!

Oh, and Frozen Silver paint as well? Why that extra expense?

All of the test cars had bad paint jobs? So, what is the point of painting them anyway? Is there some magic structural integrity in the paint that we don't know about?

Your comment was about just the Frozen Grey, which I made a semi-tongue-in-cheek comment. Hope you have a better day.
