It will be soon - I hear the French (EDF) are coming to your neck of the woods to plant their nuke factory! I'll be keeping an eye out for a Red X7 Tourer with the 'Ready Brek' glow around it! :rofl2:

Ah, but think which way the prevailing winds blow - there's an awful lot of us in the UK with nothing to worry about :-D Pity the same can't be said for thos living in Denmark who'll be on the receiving end of it :shock:

The UK new car buyers have believed the German propaganda and bought VW, BMW and Audi instead. :(

Meaning the French didn't manage to "sell" the new X7 as being "unmistakeably german" ... :D ...

They can stick their German cars (and I was born there) don't like any of them, least of all VW. That ridiculous marketing campaign had no effect on me whatsoever. Bring back the Grace Jones ads from the 70s and 80s with the CX and XM, and let's not forget the exploding of the GS tyre in between 2 juggernauts on the motorway. Much more creative and original!

The Spitting Image Parody follows at the end of the first video with a fitting tribute to British cars at the time!
