Re: renaults better build quality than ford? :)

I thought all modern cars were made to disintegrate on impact to improve safety/survival of the occupants by dissipating the energy of a collision. Could you suffer a severe headache if an intact Renault door mirror came flying through the side window (1lb lump of plastic/glass??) as opposed to a few shards of plastic/glass flying about the air? (high speed incident)
I know we are only talking about a 1mph car park situation here but the parameters have got to be set somewhere.

Don't take without giving in return
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
