What do you think of my car blog? Drag racing the Tdi!
 
Hey folks,

been away for a long time- since moving Jobs in Feb, I've been doing considerably less mileage.

Even though that is the case, I've still been getting my automotive thrills and spills.

Earlier in the year I though it'd be worth writing about my experiences, hopefully to provide some entertainment for folks with similar interests.

Main site is here: fu'guttycars | More Petrol, Less Polish!:cool:

This review of the Hyundai i10 may be of interest: Real Road Test- Hyundai i10 | fu'guttycars :D

Hopefully I'll be doing some ecomodding/hypermiling type shenanigans that i'll blog about:turtle:

P.s. it does contain the odd reference to the 14mpg (uk) bmw735i I have:eek:


Would be good to hear your thoughts and opinions:)

thanks

Rate guid that car. :p

High load capacity needs a disclaimer: you'll need a full rack to load anything of import onto it.

Nice you got a pre-electronic transfer case one. Still aiming to get one of those, one of these days.

To be honest with me and the brother in it, it saw plenty load luggery..

Yeah there is something satisfying snicking a secondary lever into place.

The 316i was an enjoyable read. Minds me of a trip a fellow forumer from Norway did... all the way to the top of Europe in an old Corolla (the last of the rear-drive ones). It broke down halfway there, so they found another one for sale, bought it on the spot, and continued the trip the next day.

XJ40 would be the first with the V8? Nice motor those. Not terribly economical, though... :p

Thanks for that! Glad you enjoyed the e30 write up- a fun day indeed!

The xj40 was only ever available with the straight 6 pr the v12-the v8 (and its myriad issues with timing chains) first came in the x308 in the late 90s.

Its a lovely big thing and was averaging
26 uk mpg (21.6us) on the drive home. I think thats fairly good for a 4.0 auto 1800kg
(3970lb) car..
