Is anyone else thinking that this rising anti-German sentiment may be a concern when leaving a German plated M5 parked on the street in Italy. It seems most Italians are still pro-German, but it just takes a few resentful hooligans. I remember a time when thugs used to go around smashing up German cars in the UK after football matches.

Just to be safe, put a sign in the windshield: "I am not German. I am an American and I support Silvio's austerity plan." Then you should be safe.

Also, note to self, always park in garage overnight! Yikes!

I'm planning on going to Italy too! Maybe I should drive my Fiat over there instead!

Maybe they won't sabotage your car, but just kidnap you instead
