  1. Riz - Have Tissues Handy...

    Saw this already but it doesn't come across as a test-mule like the R400 did, is it a proven Volkswagen owned mule or is it just a modified Golf R that is privately owned/tested? If it does see a production version count me in not sure where I would get the funding for it though!
  2. Golf GTI Edition 40 - 261bhp

    Excellent, if it wasn't for the fact I need 5 doors and more of a all-year round car I would have got a Golf GTI Clubsport S. My Golf R is coming up to 10k miles :D
  3. RS3 - Saloon!

    To be fair most if not all Audi S/RS and Volkswagen R's have been criticised for having a under-steering setup, its just the way they are..... having now covered nearly 6000 miles in my Golf R I am yet to feel the under-steering on the Golf R, its pretty sorted!
  4. RS3 - Saloon!

    I know but still a Golf facelift is due soon, wonder if the R will also get refreshed with the newer 310bhp block.
  5. RS3 - Saloon!

    I want to like the new RS3 saloon but just not sure about Audi RS's direction of design.... I most of the current RS hate alloy wheel designs and the way Audi has made the front and rear bumpers too "busy", much prefer the diffuser on the Golf R Golf R
  6. Top Gear s.23

    The show doesn't need more presenters. They should drop TogGear Extra and just extend the main show by 30 mins or make the series longer.
  7. Which Apple laptop?

    Regarding the whole life-span argument, I'm running a mid-2010 MacBook Pro with a couple of SSD drives which will be 6 years old this October, doubt any Windows based laptop would have lasted as long as my Mac has and there is nothing really wrong with it. I've got my use/monies worth out of it I'm waiting for the 2016 models to arrive as just want something a bit quicker. MacBook Pro's may cost a lot vs Windows laptops initially but they are way longer lasting in my opinion.

    I went for Gtechniq Crystal Serum Black with EXO, full surfaces package but had to make a revisit following Volkswagens c0ck up. Plus side is that its now got 4 coats of EXO on the body and 2 coats on the alloy wheels!

    A quick snap during its Gtechniq treatment.
  10. Top Gear s.23

    I'm glad Evan's has gone, he wasn't really a good match for the show, I believe Chris Harris and Rory and Matt should take the helm going forwards.
  11. Recommend me a dashcam

    Well I was thinking it'll carry on recording though the night or when the car is parked up without draining the battery.
  12. Recommend me a dashcam

    I'm considering this too. Let me know what you think. I was also thinking about using a large external Anker USB charger for its power supply and then just charge it at home/off the cigarette socket as apposed to keeping it running off the car battery. What do you think?
  13. Top Gear s.23

    I think its because of the understeer nature of the Audi RS3 which keeps it from being more of a drivers car.

    Golf R and my old GTI do some fakery too Mmm but I liked it
  15. Top Gear s.23

    Just watched last nights episode...... really enjoyed it. Agree with he comments, Chris Evan's is the weakest link.... always shouting too!
