50 years. It's written off after 20 years anyway. How much do you worry
whether your new car will last 20 years or 50 years?

This is interesting. Whereabouts in central Europe are you located Tom.
How much sun relative to say the south UK?

To be fair latitude isn't the only factor here. Cloudiness is also
important. I lived in Germany and summers were much longer and warmer and
even winters were brighter (tho colder) in general.
