Yep, water cooled VW's

I wouldn't actually compare them to old water cooled VW Bugs, those engines needed constant valve adjustments every 6,000 miles. I had one, a real pain and not a lot of power..

Japan got the ideas from Germany in exchange for some optics technology. The only Foreign auto makers I like is Honda Toyota and Mazda.

Hmm, what optics technology are you referring to? Yes, other than Subaru, Porsche uses the boxer engines.

Lenses, mirrors, a lot of photography stuff.

I see, OK, you must mean the "Eye Sight" automatic braking system and camera technology... That's pretty recent stuff. Boxer engine technology has been on Subaru for over 40 years... you couldn't have meant that?

This started back in the 70's and continued right up until just a few years ago when German optics started rivaling the Japanese optics.
