Audi A4: Pound For Pound Is This The Best Car Around?

That’s a fair question and I know what my answer would be. There are of course many Audi A4 variants. Audi do not miss a trick when it comes to offering something for everyone on every model. In this case the car on test is an A4 saloon with a 2.0L TFSI 248bhp (252PS) quattro S-tronic in S-Line trim. It has got the lot. If you check out the options list below I cannot frankly see anything I would like to add, except maybe Audi’s Virtual Cockpit which is the best thing since sliced bread. I would also like to specify a lower price. Continue reading

Holiday Abroad While You Still Can?

Across the short stretch of water that will soon be officially called La Manche lies a mysterious continent called Europe. I mention this because a new study reveals that Brexit could bring a boost to the tourism industries of a number of European nations over the next two years as more Brits holiday on the continent before we exit the EU, with Italy and Spain profiting the most presumably because they have the best weather.

An Ongoing Struggle With The Pothole

A problem that just won’t seem to go away for drivers across the whole of the UK are potholes – especially if the results of a new report by the RAC is anything to go on. According to their figures, between January and March 2017, the RAC dealt with over 6,500 breakdowns, which were likely attributable to poor road surfaces. The last time that so many pothole-related breakdowns were recorded in a three-month period was in the first quarter of 2015 (almost 6,900 breakdowns were recorded then). However, in the early months of 2015, the country was subjected to more days of frost and rainfall when compared to the first three months of 2017, when the nation experienced mild and moderately dry conditions.

Jaguar XE R-Sport 2.0L Diesel – Business As Usual

There are Jaguars for work and there are Jaguars for play. In this case, here’s a car that is the business. The Jaguar XE featured here in R-Sport trim certainly looks the part; the looks are understated yet racy but that’s as far as the performance goes. You see, this model is a diesel and is not designed for high speed travel; it is designed for comfort with matching economy and on that score it certainly delivers. Continue reading

Do You Really Want Your Teen On The Road?

The stereotypical teen driver is a 17-year-old male who has just passed his test. His parents have enough money to get him his own car. He piles it full of his mates on a Saturday night, drink or drugs may be added to the mix and a tragedy occurs which shatters many young lives and may affect other road users. It is every parent’s nightmare but happens on UK roads every day. This is a stereotypical view and we all know that stereotypes can be both unfair and damaging. However, in this case, there are some statistics to back it up. Continue reading

Car Services: Necessary Or Not?

It’s never a happy time when it comes to servicing your car. A lot of people avoid them altogether, preferring to spend their money on something that they deem to be more important. Others have payment plans put in specifically for the services so they know that they’re covered at the end of the year, whilst a small majority choose to pay it all upfront. It depends on the person and the dealership in question. But the main question is this: are they really necessary? Continue reading
