There are some great standard fit exhausts, such as on the Abarth 595 & R56 Mini cooper S.

I can't really hear any exhaust sound from my up GTI; a nice Milltek will eventually rectify that though

I had a private reg that came with an old Fiesta Mk3 (N2 MCP). Interestingly, it had been on the car from being brand new. I had only paid £300 for the car so anything was a bonus. It was valued at...

Well, some up GTI owners believe that the suspension is the weakest point of the car. It isn't bad and I'm sure that most owners will have absolutely no complaints, but there's always room for...

This doesn't really apply as much to people who regularly replace their cars for newer models, but I hate how dated these screens/interfaces can look after say 5 years. At least with a headhunt of...

I would say that they've got a bit of character about them. The OH's is a 60ps Move up! and even in the lower power and trim level I still find it pretty good fun and nimble. The OH had a Corsa...

We have two Ups in our household so it’s fair to say that we are a big fan of them. The little thrumming 3 pot engines don’t mind revving and still seem to get high mpg if you’re less than careful....

Just beyond 800 miles on the clock. Averaged 48mpg over the last two tank fills without making any real effort to drive economically. A good chunk of that driving has been on hilly back B roads.

The Polo GTIs are certainly a smart looking car and go against the grain with the step up to the 2.0 TSI under the bonnet. There will be plenty that get remapped to a much higher figure.

Jobs like this make a lot of difference to the overall appearance. I did a similar thing on our old Corsa E, the callipers were looking tired after only 6k miles, but they weren't painted from the...

I have the P150 and haven't had any issues. You can easily tell that it's a powerful machine, it isn't loud either as it thrums away. Having said that I have owned the machine for around 10 months...

By and large there are a lot of tiny new build houses built on poorly laid out estates. Some 3 beds can be as little as 700 sq ft. I'd imagine that many buyers don't even interpret the dimensions of...

Well I ended up with a stupidly good deal on the P150 in the end. It was on on prime a year back at £250 and it arrived with a very slight crack (hardly noticeable) in the front panel. I negotiated...

A colleague has a late model Panda 4x4 and it really is a great little car for wintery conditions. They have a small footprint, only problem is that I don’t think you can get an auto.

To my knowledge, the fallout remover dissolves it. Either way it's washed away as far as I'm concerned, once it's rinsed the iron fallout is gone. If someone knows the more scientific explanation,...

They are good fun to drive, and strike a good balance between fun and low running costs. My insurance was only £157, and is roughly half what I paid on my old ST. Mpg is easily in the 50s, and...
