    Been watching on Quest recently and being a bit sad I check the MOT history. Given that they discount the many man hours put into these projects and still don’t make a massive amount on them, you’d think they would be a good buy. Nearly all last for less than three years before they fail their...

    Anyone bought one? Did it turn out to be a good or bad decision? I'm looking at a low mileage car that's had 3 registered owners in two and a half years. The last owner had it for 2 years before trading it, and had a main dealer service done during his time with the car. So it had 2 owners in...

    Walking past a nearby house today, and their garage was open. Deep in the shadows at the back was the 1st model coupe based on the Vauxhall Corsa. After racking my brains for a few minutes I was forced to admit defeat in remembering what it was called, and recruit Google to refresh my memory -...

    Guys - Quite a lot of new cars don’t have water temp gauges. How would you know then if your thermostat was popped? Cold ish heater?

    They reckon diesels will go on for another 20 years and Petrol 30 years: “A best assumption of 30 percent of electrified sales (battery-electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids) by 2025 means that at least 80 percent of our vehicles will have an internal combustion engine,” Klaus Froelich, BMW...

    The new A4; a front and a back grafted onto a smudged version of today’s middle.

    .... for really irrational and illogical reasons. Firstly, the Peugeot RCZ. I really like the shape, it's quirky and interesting and the double bubble roof reminds me of old land speed cars and mentalist Zagato stuff. However, the short nose and long rear deck scream mid-engined. I was so...

    The Germans have found “Electric vehicles in Germany account for more CO2 emissions than diesel ones, according to a study by German scientists. When CO2 emissions linked to the production of batteries and the German energy mix - in which coal still plays an important role - are taken into...

    Hello all So I as doing so general browsing yesterday and stumbled upon what appeared to be press release photos for the Brera. Some of these photos stood out to me as the number plate for one of the cars was more than familiar to me. Is there a list anywhere of all the brera press vehicles...

    I just saw on the news a proposal for new cars to be fitted with systems which will automatically limit the vehicle speed to obey with speed limits. The AA have advised that the limiter would need to be able to be overridden in case of emergency scenarios or overtaking. Okay... Angry rant...

    At Geneva yesterday I noted the absence of ,among others, Jaguar LandRover, Volvo( but not Polestar), Ford , Mini , Opel but some signs of electric cars. Seat has created a premium brand using the Cupra name , not unlike Polestar but Citroen did not show DS. Fiat seemed to returning to their 80s...

    I'm sure you have seen this. On new era cars like Mercs, the auto shift lever has moved from the centre console (so as to make room for more cupholders... is this a car, or a kitchen? But anyway...) to the steering column. The shift pattern goes: R N/P< push for the latter D No matter which...

    I'm not talking about the classics that you have, I'm talking about one's you had and sold cheaply as you progressed through your driving career. I've only got 1. It is my XR3. I can only find mint versions of the XR3i, which sell upwards of £6k. My 1980/81, 4 speed, twin Weber version is...
