      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.

      This car design is nearly 40 years old now! The first BMW E30 came out in 1982. I consider it was pretty good in the 1980's. Of course, most of the modern cars are better.

      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
