    My £400 V8 :-)

    Ok, so it was a little more than £400 but i'll explain. After writing off my clio, i bought a Mk3 Golf GTI for £300, gave it a wash and sold it for £900..... added an extra £100 to that and bought this for a just over a grand. Therefore only spending £400. Thats how i like to look at it anyway...

    Think I under-estimated my tyres

    After returning home from a 1 month stay in Bahrain, I had forgoten that the rear tyres on my 182 where low. This, plus a bit of rain means my 182 is now in the scrappys. Ive always paid top dollar for my tyres even on my first shed of a car. Now ive bought a £300 golf GTI off ebay and it...

    Just wondering your thoughts on my payout after writing off my 182. Its a 2004 (54) Silver, Non cup 182 with 68,000 miles. They have sent me a cheque for £5300. I was over the moon with that price tbh so was wondering your views.

    Think ive written off my 182 (Pic)

    Got caught out in a heavy down-pour and lost the back end on a fast A-road corner. I wasnt even going fast, especially due to conditions.... hit flood water from the fields, full of leaves and mud. Basically kept opposite lock on from the start but still headed off the road. Had to...

    Goodyear review against Michelin

    I recently changed my tyres on the front from PEs to Goodyear eagle F1s mainly because they were cheaper yet still got good reviews. In my opinion they are far better than the PE2s. Ive only had then on a couple weeks and they grip amazingly in the dry but even more suprisingly in the wet...

    Strange power loss yesterday

    Was heading up the A1 back to Edinburgh and the car was still reletively cold as i had only been driving 10 mins. Went to pass a slower car at about 60 mph and when i accelerated in 5th it just lost so much power. The more i tried to get past the slower it would go. I shamefully dropped back...

    Great built-in anti speeding measure...

    .... the faster i go, the colder my feet get. Its doing my head in up here in these lovely warm tempretures. Basically, i get freezing cold air blowing in through the footwell, and the faster i go the more forcefull it is. So at 70mph its like hair dryer set on 'bloody cold'. But if i turn...
