    Traffic cops - BBC1

    But why is it terrible? On the schedule of insurance, the guy said it was parked in the garage. The risk would have been rated on the car being out of view at night, and the premium reduced accordingly. You cant get away leaving the car on the drive when it should be locked up. If the...

    S3 V S4 power graph

    When I bought the S4, I was looking to try and compare the power against my remapped S3. I couldn't find any power charts at the time, but soon as I drove an S4, I knew it just felt stronger across the whole rev range. I thought it would be a good idea to get the S4 on the rollers, and see...
