Only if you painted a motorbike on the concrete.

My Volvo has just made no impact on a Mazda 626.

Mazda - scuffed bumper
Volvo - new rear door, new rear wing, nearside respray and blend

I'm getting a lot of stick...

Well Tim, they certainly don't make them like the used to. put my '73 164
volvo against my S3 head to head, i dont reckon there would be a great deal
of difference. both built like brick shithouses and both way almost exactly
the same.

Aye, and to be honest I wouldn't want to crash in either. Weight
counts for a lot, but the way a car absorbs energy is the important
thing, not how it looks after the crash.

If I was going to have an accident with my 2 year old in the back?
I'd take my Volvo over FiL's Mazda every time, not to mention over
most Land Rovers ever made.

I'm still getting a lot of stick. To add insult to injury my
father-in-law is, as the third party, getting a courtesy car whilst
they touch up his bumper. I'm off the road for 9 days with only the
offer of a special price on a hire car. Hurrrumph...

Landies are more fun though, I hit a rock with the side step, bent up the
side step something rotten, but did not impede my progress in any way :)
