I live in Spain - there was an enormous amount of press coverage over this manipulation. And so it would seem that if the security agencies are that slack and lackadaisical about what they do and produce the circumstantial evidence would point to other "manipulations"?
One has to bear in mind the following: if I take my vehicle to get it serviced I have to trust what the mechanic says - I am no mechanic.
