  1. DSG 10 speeds

    Interestingly Audi have ditched DSG on the single turbo six cylinder diesel A7 and adopted the 8 speed ZF which they brought in last year with the twin turbo car.
  2. 0% Finance on BMW M cars

    Over three years with these people it is £9200 pa incl VAT so there are lots of deals out there: BMW M5 SALOON M5 4dr DCT Lease | Car leasing made simple™ 6+35 at £561+VAT
  3. New Audi S3 Sportback w/ 300PS 2.0 Turbo

    I agree. Not sure it will tempt us out of the current S3SB. Personally I was expecting the A3/S3 Sportback to be bigger given how much larger the B8 A4 is over the B7.
  4. Would you buy a Lotus Elan?

    Have to agree. Better off with an MX5/TT Roadster.
  5. Tyre Pressure Questions

    I tend to run about 2psi over the stated figures, allows for some pressure loss and the need for more air in the winter. Always amazed when I come out of the tyre fitters how all over the place the pressures are FWIW.
  6. Goodbye & hello

    Love the Monza. There was one at the side of a photo in Evo this month testing a special Lancia. Got me thinking.
  7. Lotus

    Their cars are now overpriced. Surely a five year old used Elise is 90% as good as a new one and leaves plenty of cash for a hatchback as a daily driver?
  8. New Mercedes-Benz CLA

    Mercedes styling is very fussy these days.
  9. Our S3 SB came with two. Great car BTW.
  10. Less sexism, better insurance premium?

    Insurers are very inconsistent as to what a modification is but surely something fitted at the factory off the options list cannot be seen as a modification?
  11. 2013 Corvette Stingray

    It will be interesting to see how they price the RHD version when it comes. Like it.
  12. Cadillac ELR Hybrid Coupe

    Struggling to comment on this one.
  13. Audi A7's night vision

    Doubt it works in the real world. Tried an E350 diesel with headlamps that auto dipped when someone came towards you. If you were lucky they had dipped by the time the other car had passed you flashing their lights in anger.
  14. BMW Concept 4 Series Coupe

    Like it.
  15. New BMW M6 Gran Coupe

    PS Wasn't on TSN much last year. It's bloody quiet these days.
