It’s 3:40am here and it’s been snowing for the last three hours, fairly light but consistent. I just drove a friend home and was therefore pretty much the first to drive in this fresh 5-6 inches of snow... It’s already fun in most cars, but it’s definitely a blast in a 275hp FWD manual hot hatch with a proper (read:…
Yeah, ancient, I know. But it was appropriate. Yesterday I flew into Bologna airport in the northern part of Italy. In some airports you get guided to your parking spot by a so-called “follow-me” car. The last time I went to Bologna we got an old Fiat to guide us in. This time though... I saw something low to the…
Because I believe one of them has gotten a Golf R. And was checking out my i30 N with seeming appreciation when I drove off a day or two back. #hothatchlife
OK, not quite on the same level, but good company none the less.
Took this snapshot from the cockpit this evening. Noctilucent clouds, a form of clouds that’s relatively unknown/uncommon. You only see them in higher latitudes during certain times of year and mostly during twilight. They’re basically ice particles at extremely high altitudes (250.000 - 280.000 feet, or for metric…
Picked up my “premium” rental car today. The lottery was between an Audi A4, BMW 3-series or Jaguar XE. I got the Jaaaaaaag.
I’ll be in my home country for a few days starting tomorrow, and decided to rent a car so I can easily visit my friends and family in between work. I’ve had a financially good month in July and decided to “splurge” on a “premium” rental.
Still planning to do a write up, just no time as I’m working my ass off these summer months. And the time I do have I spend on things like BBQs and driving the car instead of writing about it. Suffice it to say, it puts a smile on my face every single time. I drove the Mazdaspeed 6 a few days back again after a few…
Have a look at the Volvo test track near Gothenburg from above.
Anyone here have any experience with ceramic coating to protect your paint job and make keeping the outside of your car in decent shape a bit easier?
Today I picked up my new car from the dealer, an Engine Red Hyundai i30 N. For those of you not familiar with the car, it’s basically Hyundai’s first attempt at a properly hot hatch for more performance focused buyers. So it tends to go up against things like the Golf GTI and Peugeot 308 GTI.
I have to spent my entire day off just sitting and waiting and knowing that I get to pick up my brand new Hyundai i30 N tomorrow morning. So I figured I would bore some of you with pictures from the ‘office’. Fair warning, bunch of pictures, possibly heavy on data should you have a limited plan.
Going to the dealer coming Monday to do the paperwork. My Mazda 6 MPS/Mazdaspeed 6 needs work that will cost more than I am willing to put into the 12 year old car, so decided to go new. It has been a blast for the last year though.
On my test drive tomorrow of a Hyundai i30 N?
I basically found out this car existed a few weeks ago and after reading reviews, watching as many videos as I can about it, I am starting to seriously consider getting one of these.
Some of you may have read my previous posts about my Mazda 6 MPS, or as it’s known in the US, my Mazdaspeed 6. It’s my first car, bought mostly for fun as I don’t really need a car. Buying it was also a gamble. There was no service history, a rolled back odometer, leaky exhaust, airbag light on and a few other little…
I’m not a frequent poster, but some of you may remember a few posts about a Mazda 6 MPS or Mazdaspeed 6 for U.S. folks that I bought last summer. Long story to follow, scroll down for summary, haha.
I’m thinking about stuff to do with my Mazda 6 MPS over the next year if it passes the yearly check next month... Up until today the shortlist looked a bit like this;
Most economical Nissan ever.
So in June I bought a used, 110k+ mile Mazda 6 MPS/Mazdaspeed 6. No user or service history. No user manual. It was a gamble buy because of all these reasons but the power and fun factor won me over. For more details you can check out this post:
