The title of this video says 2002, but, well, no way. I think it's an E30, but with the mono-paint, it's kinda hard to tell.

Check it out and see how well the E30 holds up in a huge rollover test.

The first video of the "2002" doesn't look like either a 2002 OR an E30, and the comments below the video range from E21 to E30, but honestly, I really can't see either in that specific car... the holes under the bumper on the front dam don't look right for an E30...and I don't remember what the underside front of my 2002 looked like at all.

The E30 318 crash test is interesting. The driver was restrained, but sustained head injuries from hitting the steering wheel. The passenger was restrained enough to not hit the dash with it's head, but his knees, especially the left knee, were hit pretty badly.

It's amazing how well the passenger compartment held up. What's amazing is that we can identify each flying piece during the crash!

But I wish my car had air bags! That would be the icing on the cake because I think everything else held up very well.

Gold gas tank package. I also like the mint looking catalytic converter.
