  13. Mini rental car review

    General Motoring Discussion
    That's mini as in short, not detailed, not Mini the brand. I needed to rent a car on a work trip. I booked a VW Golf or equivalent. When I went to pick it up, there was no Golf or equivalent available, so I ended up "upgraded" with a Nissan Rogue. Everybody who knows me around these parts...

  18. TCT: Should car roll when in P (park)

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello. When my Launch Edition TCT is sat with the engine running in Park mode, on a slight down incline or hill, should the vehicle still roll or should it act as a parking brake (using the diff I think) and not move at all? When sat at traffic lights on a slight downhill for example, when in...

    it is now mine! It needs a bit of 'fettling', but all in all it is a fine car! Alfaholics suspension, exhaust and wheels, Emerald ECU with throttle bodies. Handles an absolute dream and sounds flipping amazing! Hope to see some you at London and surrounding area meets.
