I watched a whole documentary on the sewers and the stuff that clogs them there once. Not a North American problem generally.


Oh and yes my taste in TV is odd but there are obviously enough of us interested they made the show in the first place.

Hey , I had this same issue the water is getting collected by the trunk trim and is flowing down into the lower trunk area. Take out the rear panels in the trunk and stick your hand down by the inner wheel wells. The water seems to not flow over the tail light cover and go out from the trunk trim as intended. I'm surprised not a lot of people have this issue. Mine's began when i swapped out my OEM tails for Valenti's. My back seats would get wet and i would be so confused until i started to look for the source. I hope this helps.

The insurance adjuster is calling it a total loss. He was adding up the repairs, then stopped when he got to $14K with no end in sight.

In Europe, poop and pee goes into the same sewer system as storm water. And it all goes out to the lakes, rivers and oceans.

Not for several decades it hasn't. They have much less fresh water than we do so are treating all sewage far more efficiently.

Urban waste water treatment
"The treatment of urban wastewater is fundamental to ensuring public health and environmental protection. Urban waste water treatment in all parts of Europe has improved over recent decades. The proportion of the population connected to waste water treatment plants in northern countries has been above 80 % since 1995, with more than 70 % of urban waste water receiving tertiary treatment. In central European countries, connection rates have increased since 1995 and are now at 97 %, with about 75 % receiving tertiary treatment. The proportion of the population connected to urban waste water treatment in southern, south-eastern and eastern Europe is generally lower than in other parts of Europe, but has increased over the last 10 years with levels now at about 70 %"

This is the same numbers as North America.

Ya that few miles on a 15 makes it more like an unusual koi than a goldfish.
