Three Reasons You Should Celebrate Your MOT

OK, so knowing your MOT is due is never normally a reason for being happy. It can often be an event that leads to expenditure and no car owner enjoys that with the exception of people who modify and use their car as a hobby. However, rather than being something you dread the MOT should be something you value and although you might not actually look forward to it, having a fresh MOT should be something to celebrate and be pleased with.

Photocopying Your Bum & Other Mistakes.

I have found that I cannot take my booze so well these days. The other morning, I woke up with a mouth that had all the qualities of an ancient automotive barn find; dry, dusty, a hint of rust and full of lingering memories, few of them good. I only had what I thought was a few whiskies and I have no recollection of the kebab at all. Continue reading

Mazda CX-3 – Winning At The Crossover Party

I count myself fortunate to be allowed to drive all manner of cars. This week I had the experience of stepping out of a £72k luxury car and into a mainstream crossover costing just £20,000. Fortunately, this was less of a hardship than it first appears because the crossover was the really rather good Mazda CX-3 here presented in two-wheel drive guise. Continue reading

Jaguar XJ R-Sport – An Effortless Way To Lose Your Licence

Previously I said goodbye to the current iteration of the Land Rover Discovery and felt sad at its passing. Demonstrating a shallower side to my nature however I bucked up enormously when I key-swapped the old Discovery for the nice new Ammonite Grey Jaguar XJ R-Sport SWB you see in the snaps. Well, you have to move on, don’t you? Continue reading

Fannying About On A Roundabout

Stop me if you’ve heard this. This one’s about driving standards. You’re driving up to a roundabout, right, and.. No. Wait. Come back. Let me tell it to you my way. Okay, you’re driving up to a roundabout, right? Let’s say the roundabout is, entirely hypothetically, a three-point mini-roundabout in Marlborough. There are cars stopped at all three junctions.

Land Rover Discovery – A Fond Farewell To A Legend

Or should that be au revoir? The Land Rover Discovery as we know, love and applaud it, is on the way to the home for old SUVs to be replaced by – a Land Rover Discovery. The outgoing version has all the renowned aerodynamics of a brick-and-a-half whereas the new model is sleek and modern and right on trend. Regardless, it somehow seems a shame to change it.

Why Classic Car Nuts Are Allowed To Exist

History is just a bunch of old stuff thats already happened. That appears to be how people think these days and thats a shame because although we cant change it, we can certainly learn from it – although social evidence seems to show the opposite, to be frank. We keep on making the same mistakes over and over again. Continue reading

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV – Premium Comfort

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) is the UK’s best-selling vehicle of its type. Mitsubishi reckon that the official fuel consumption figure is up to 156mpg but, to be frank, it would take a very special set of circumstances to achieve this. I certainly didn’t manage it but to be fair I was putting the test car through its paces. Continue reading
