VW Golf vs BMW M235i – Chris Harris on Cars

Published by on Aug 15th, 2014, No Comments

Golf R

Chris Harris is back and we for one are really excited to see him testing and pitting cars against each other again.

This time around Chris takes on more of a ‘normal’ car. And when we say normal, we mean non-supercar. While we love watching Lamborghinis and Ferraris in action (although we get insanely jealous) it’s also great to see Chris review everyday cars.

With his unique reviewing style, Chris pits the Volkswagen Golf R against the BMW M235i.

Which car do you think will come out on top? Check out the video below:

The Drive channel on YouTube always brings us the very best in automotive entertainment. They are responsible for great shows such as after Drive, Chris Harris (our favorite car guy) On Cars and Big Muscle – a show about, well, you know, big muscle cars.

Thanks to it’s immense popularity, Big Muscle has been running for four seasons, and you can just imagine how many great, big cars have been featured on the show.

We’re talking Corvettes, twin engine cars and fire creating monsters. Very exciting, even if you prefer more polished vehicles like sports cars. (more…)

WCOTY

A few weeks ago we reported on the finalists for the World Car of the Year Awards. The awards were to be handed out at a ceremony at the New York Auto Show. And so the votes are in and some car companies are feeling especially proud.

The jury for the wards included motoring journalists from almost all corners of the world including North America, Europe and Asia. They tested all the nominated cars and voted for their favorites – and we must say, we are not too surprised by the results.

Either way, it’s always good to know which cars are standing out above the rest.

The winners are:  (more…)

Heads up Display @ Autostyle Motorsport

Published by on Jan 14th, 2008, No Comments

autogauge heads up Autostyle Motorsport had similar units in the past, albeit at a sky high price. Luckily our eccentric supplier from the far east, Autogauge has released their own version of the Heads Up Display Kit.

For the uninformed, a Heads Up Display kit gives you your speed readings by lighting it up onto your windscreen. Fighter pilot/TopGun style. The kits are very intuitive and easy to install.
Included is the regular fittings, wiring harnesses & sticker film for your windscreen.

These are available at a R895/set, click here to buy online

Unfortunately at the time of this post, I have no photographs of the actual unit in use
Arrange with Autostyle to photograph your car in action with this or email Naeem @ Autostyle with a good clear picture of these, and he’ll rebate you R100 back on your purchase

888-hp Audi R8 (or R888) from MTM

Audi R8 by MTM

Audi R8 is not only appealing to drivers, but also to tuners and since the Germans like to modify cars – and they are pretty good at it, you should know this one is coming from MTM, those crazy guys that built the Audi TT Bimoto twin-engine with 780hp. They built it for a European customer and presented their tuned Audi R8 at the Dubai Motor Show. Here is what we found out on it:

  • a 4.2 liter engine with a turbocharger system that sports 888-hp
  • 610lb-ft-torque
  • R-tronic transmission
  • does 0 – 60mph in 3 seconds
  • is electronically limited at 223mph (360 km/h)

If you can afford it, I don’t think MTM will decline your offer to change your R8 into an R888 for €280,000. By the way, great wheels, don’t you think?

The new Nissan 350Z Roadster starts into the new convertible season with some modifications. Cobra Technology & Lifestyle already offers a broad range of sporty COBRA N+ tuning components for the 2006 model. Of course most COBRA N+ options are also available for the modified 350Z coupe.

The facelift on the 350Z bodywork required the development of new COBRA N+ bodystyling components made from flexible PU-Rim in original equipment quality. The COBRA N+ front spoiler, which also fits on the coupe, not only lends the 350Z more passing prestige but also minimizes aerodynamic lift on the front axle. The front is further refined with a special COBRA N+ grate made from high-gloss stainless steel. (more…)
