  1. Jean :useless market, people buy cars of Volkswagen AG… Austrian people feel german ?

    There is a similar phenomenon in the japanese market – people buy japanese cars first of all. 😉

  2. @Jean
    No we don’t, they just build great cars, but i agree with you, french cars should be much more represented on the Austrian market. They should find much more buyers than Hyundai/KIA! Or Opel and Ford…
