  3. Overblown automotive marketing

    General Motoring Discussion
    :cheese: A fashion website has photos of Jude Law doing a promo for Lexus. But it's the description of the event that has practically brought me to tears. It's just too, too much, and much too much precious! Even Law looks like he can barely contain his contempt. You can see the brain...

I'm not talking pie in the sky here, I mean things that you really want, and could stretch to buying and running, but for whatever reason just hasn't happened for you yet. My list goes: 1. MKII Golf GTi (I've been in the market several...

  18. The automotive industry in 2012/2013

    General Motoring Discussion
    Guys, What do you think the automotive landscape will look like this time next year? It's an interesting crossroads at the moment. I doubt Saab will make it, Opel - and hence Vauxhall - is looking rocky, Renault has dropped five models from the UK, Alfa only offers two models, and VW's...
