      surprised at how badly the seats are attached to the floor, the seatbelt doesnt do shit to help save the driver if the whole fucking seat moves forward

      My aunt was rear ended on the highway in one of these and walked away with some pain and bruising. The driver of the Chevy that hit her was airlifted.

      to be fair look at the crash tests of other cars from the 1980s. This car actually seems much better than average for its time.

      The thing that gets me is these dummies have no muscles... Humans would have more resistance due to muscle..also what style of seatbelts were these... My coupe's slide on a rail while my sedan's are bolted to the seat from factory... Either way this makes me want a 5 point though...

      @ Rob
      a sprinter (human runner, not the Merc van) reaches half the speed of this - imagine hitting a wall then. Muscles do not help there, and may be even these engineers have thought about the topic

      The front of the car is supposed to crumple like that so the middle of it stays straight and that way the driver doesn't get crushed

      I had a car accident while i was driving this model (e30 coupe 1988 year) and I was a driver. The speed was approximately 45-50 km\h. I crashed into a road bump (safety equipment on the curb)... Eventually, the seatbelts saved me, and I am Ok. Moreover, I repeated this car a then I had been driving it for 2 years. Now, I am starving about it, BMW e30 drives like sex. e30 wanted, but year to year rust does its job

      I crashed my first BMW 325es, slammed the car right into the back of an Infiniti G20 back in 1999. I just happened to look away for a few moments and ran near full force at 40 mph far too late to brake. The car suffered far less destruction compared to this test since the rear of the Infiniti was smashed beyond recognition. The E30 held up excellent, the bumper took all the impact along with creases in the front fenders illustrating the impact points. Hood was bent but not much. Sadly the car was totalled as the front grill was pushed into the radiator along with the transmission and driveline being destroyed from impact. Engine actually ran ok after impact. I had no injury just shaken up. The idiot infiniti driver was fine until he reported severe back and shoulder pain to insurance weeks later.

      James Kido The car probably absorbed the impact and somehow all the shock went to the Infiniti or some shit like that.
