Quick someone call Tavarish, I’ve found his next rebuild!
Oh wow is that the 2.0 OHC Family II engine that we got in the J body cars in Europe? It had 130hp here!
Just a shame the engine choices in the Corolla are a bit meh, Toyota still keep advertising their shitty old tech hybrids as "Self charging" like that is somehow better than ones you can plug in and actually charge and get 30 or so miles of range (I still think plugin hybrids need to really have at least 50 miles of…
Well that IS one the reasons Honda gave tbf.
But no one in all of Europe is buying them, it makes no sense at all to be building them anywhere other than the US.
Yes Brexit is to blame for sure, we would all be driving Infiniti’s otherwise! lol
Yeah it looks nice in pictures, and most importantly it’s not bloody black!!
If I'd have waited for the Scala I would have wanted the 1.5 DSG, I have no desire to go back to a manual now. The Polo GTi only comes with DSG in the UK, is also a 2.0tsi so should be fun, I've gone for met blue and the plus model that has nice stuff like led headlights, keyless entry, adaptive cruise and digital…
Yes full VW, the new Polo GTi, managed to jump the (ridiculous) 40-50 week wait for them by grabbing a dealer ordered demo in the colour and with the options I want which is being built next week, so only a 9 week wait now (they are built in South Africa).
It is literally a Fiat 500 with a section cut out of the middle!!
I was seriously considering a Scala to replace the Leon but got tired of waiting for UK specs and prices so have been lured to the dark side (VW proper) by a great deal on a new car.
Well it’s been photographed inside THEIR showroom, so must be in good enough shape for that, hence it is in showroom condition.
I was in my local VW dealer on Saturday (looking at the new Polo GTi) and sat in a T-Roc, a pretty high spec one and OMG the hard plastics, even the top dash pas is solid hard plastic, not soft and squishy like even a poverty spec Polo has, as the one I was sat in had an OTR price of over £30k (2.0tsi DSG 4 motion…
Is that not just a dressed up i3? As an i3 owner there is a lot about it that seems familiar l, like a lot!
Didn't Hoovie pay like 1200 bucks for his (admittedly leggier and rougher) one? CP either way.
Not bothered reading past 15k for a 16 year old bug eyed Impreza, could be made of pure unobtanium for all I care, massive CP.
No the i3 DOES blend regen with the brake pedal, as I stated above, you can see it happening on the display.
I periodically jump on our i3's brakes to clear any crap and rust off them.
As an i3 owner I must point out that you are in correct. It can be ‘one pedal ‘ driven but it also engages the regen under light to mid pressure braking with the brake pedal, clearly seen by the display in the instrument display when doing so.
