    General Alfa Discussion Few interesting points: Never knew they were trying to copy the TT (if that's true). The GT has always been my least favourite shape on the 156 platform - that might be why! Their opinion on JTS vs JTDm...

  15. Back in my Mum's Up! for the week

    General Motoring Discussion
    If HotWheels needs a new Whizz-kid car, then it's got to be an Up-Ski. :) I still don't like its robotised manual. When pottering about at 30/40mph, the engine is so very quiet. As you travel in near engine silence, the engine seems to 'lose' power, then - after a pause - the power comes back...

  20. Air Freshener - Loser of the week

    Car Detailing
    Hi, My car came with this air freshener in it when I brought it and I cannot find it online or in store anywhere. Has anyone seen these in a shop or online before as it is by far the best air freshener I have come across? Feel like such a loser but every one comments on it when they get in my car!
