BMW M3 WITH THE COMPETITION PACK FOR SALE. Car news.

By | November 21st, 2019|car news, reviews|0 Comments

If you have a used car budget of £40,000 and you want a vehicle that can fit 5 adults with luggage, is extremely fast, handles with poise, has a motorsport pedigree and isn’t a huge luxury saloon, estate or SUV....then I think you should have a look at this - the BMW M3 with the Competition Pack. [...]

UPDATED VAUXHALL ASTRA. Short new car review.

By | October 15th, 2019|reviews|0 Comments

This was the first time that I have driven the updated new Vauxhall Astra.  Many of you must be wondering ...where has most of the updating taken place?  To be fair Vauxhall have subtly updated its looks and have made further improvements to its airflow around the car....but it’s under the skin where the major [...]

JEEP WRANGLER OVERLAND. New car review

By | October 8th, 2019|car news, reviews|0 Comments

It has been over 20 years since I last drove a Jeep Wrangler and I was glad to see (and feel) that the new Wrangler hasn’t lost any of its charm. I drove the new version - the Wrangler Overland 4 door.  The starting price is £48,365 which puts it squarely with all the other [...]

THE INTERESTING NEW HONDA e. New car review.

By | October 1st, 2019|car news, reviews|0 Comments

Here is a car that not only looks good...it is also green for the planet.  This is the cute little Honda e.  For me it was definitely “my car” of the Frankfurt Motor Show.  I am somewhat torn in how to best describe this car.  Is it retro? is it ultra futuristic?  I really don’t know and I struggle [...]

THE ALL NEW VAUXHALL CORSA AT THE FRANKFURT MOTOR SHOW 2019.

By | September 19th, 2019|motorshow blogs, reviews|0 Comments

This is Vauxhall’s rather grown-up and rather sophisticated looking new Corsa. The new Corsa is bigger than the previous model and has more room inside for the driver and passenger but despite it growing in size it actually weighs less!  It uses the same underpinnings as its Peugeot Citroen brothers. The interior is rather welcoming [...]

MY FIRST ENCOUNTER WITH THE NEW VW ID.3. Review

By | September 17th, 2019|car news, motorshow blogs, reviews|0 Comments

The time had come and the VW ID.3 was the first car I raced to find at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2019.  Why? Because VW has been saying that this car is their 3rd major milestone in history (the 1st being the Beetle and 2nd the Golf). First impressions, on viewing it from the outside, [...]

MERCEDES-AMG GT 63 S 4 DOOR COUPE. Short blog review.

By | August 27th, 2019|reviews|0 Comments

If you want a GT car with a sense of theatre that accompanies you everywhere you go and you have over £130,000 - then I recommend that you consider a Mercedes AMG GT63 S.  I would never get tired of hearing its V8 engine soundtrack - which sounds as if it’s from a World War [...]

RENAULT MEGANE RS 300 TROPHY. Short blog review.

By | August 22nd, 2019|reviews|0 Comments

When I first saw the Renault Mégane RS at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show it excited me.  From time to time I come away from an International Motor Show (after viewing and sitting inside a car) thinking I really hope it drives as well as it looks.  So, when offered the chance to drive one [...]

ABARTH 595 ESSEESSE Short blog review.

By | July 2nd, 2019|car news, reviews|0 Comments

Abarth have launched the 595 Esseessee as part of the brand’s 70th birthday celebrations.   What makes this car rather special for me (apart from its 70th Anniversary badges) are the awesome 17inch Supersport Racing white alloys wheels and the extremely comfy Sabelt carbon fibre shell front seats.  Visually, the Italians know how to set my heart [...]
