FWD is sick and wrong and should be done away with!
People like Alec Issigonis, Timo Mäkinen, Rauno Aaltonen(I used to work for his legend!) and half the ppl in grF would disagree with you. But you know better, huh. ;)

It's perfect for constructing spaceous cars like the Fiesta while saving a bit of money in the process to do so
Sure, doesn't make it right ;)

Appeal to authority doesn't work with me for one. A pro driver being able to drive a drivetrain layout well is in no way an endorsement of that layout for two.

"I have to say a lot of people have been asking about FWD. No, really. A lot of people come up to me and they ask me. They say, "Why does FWD suck"? And I tell them look, we know why FWD sucks. We've had eighty years of the worst kind of layout you can imagine. Oh my god, I can't believe it. The wheels and the steering and the power. Its terrible. Its just terrible. Look, if you want to know what FWD is, do you want to know what FWD is? I'll tell you. First of all the front wheels, by the way I love the front wheels. they´re probably my favorite wheels, no they are my favorite wheels. You know what, they're probably more like the front wheels but placed at the back. If I'm being honest, I mean, if I'm being honest. I like a lot of wheels. Except for front-driven wheels, now those are wheels that I don't like. Though, I probably shouldn't say that. they're nice wheels but they are ,like, understeering. going straight on and on, like that. They're weak! You know what I mean? They're very weak. I don't know. I mean, you know. So, we have all these wheels and we can power the front ones or the rears. ALL OF them even. Did you know that? We can power all of them, they don't tell you that, and I'll tell you, no one is better at powering all the wheels than me. You wouldn't believe it. That I can tell you. So, we're gonna be the best on FWD, believe me. OK? Alright. Thank you."

Went on a tour of some of the nice driving roads upstate, stupidly forgot that I have to press "record" twice on my dash/action cam and didn't record the best parts :(
 
I was looking for a Galaxy/Sharan/Alhambra arm rest to go in the smart with this bracket, and stumbled across this:

Seriously? There's no way you could drive with that shit on the wheel, it has to be a fake. :lol:
