That looks like fun, like a grown-up motorized Slip-N-Slide! We've got something similar in the States called Skidz School which consists of a giant parking lot filled with water where you do donuts on, and unfortunately . Apparently it's supposed to teach you car control in wet conditions, but high schoolers love it because it's just fun. I was a 1995 Dodge Neon with 153,000 miles and a missing front bumper that stalled after every run, with a Civil War veteran riding shotgun. Good times.Security training (car was stock @ that time, you drive over some wet plastic that simulates ice and your rear axel gets pulled to the side by a skidplate)
Oh god. Just leave. You wouldn't even know how to exist in the real world if your mommy wasn't there to throw cash at you.eh...
all these small euro hatchbacks are funky...
i guess its hard to afford a proper car like an a4 or 3er in europe and its hard to maintain it b/c gasoline is very expensive

SpanishVW cars. SRSLY!
My car is 108.000km old now and 5 years.
Here is a list of stuff that happened during one year.
Suspension shot (ok, I allow that)
Valve for opening cooling circuits shot (and SEAT needed 3 attempts to find the right part)
Rear brakes (drumbrakes!) ran down
Rear right wheel bearing shot (took out ABS Sensor too, ~400?)
Front left wheel bearing shot 5.000km later (front right was dead in the first year and 15.000km)
AC run dry (too little coolant left)
Ignition coils dead (twice, as the replacement ones blew after 400km)
Switched to emergency ECU mode for no reason (hooray 25? to make dealer delete error)
Butterfly valve completely covered in oil fumes (cleaned that myself)
Rear wiper tubing for spray broken (repaired myself with a repair kit from VW as it is a common problem)
Timing belt change (ok, 90.000km service), but the NEW waterpump seized after 3000km, so another timing belt and water pump on SEATs expense
Lever from glovebox fell off (happens every 10.000km )
Water leak (~3cm water behind drivers seat), misaligned door seal
Stuff with my LPG system
Injector coil shot
Injector broken in half (fatigue)
LPG partly frozen (gel-ish)
All in all, I stopped adding sums at 2500? in one year :/
