Bmw M2 Competition

If it snows, the M3 and I are going nowhere. The official BMW 'Winter Tyre Program' for the 414bhp V8 coupe is popular elsewhere in Europe and the upshot is that there's no stock of the approved Michelin winter tyre, and no word when there will be. I investigated going 'off-piste1 and finding rims and tyres from other sources, but the BMW GB press office said no, only approved and tested equipment can be fitted to their car. Seems to me a greater risk to have a 50K car on summer tyres than...

New Arrival

THE CR-Z IS BASICALLY AN INSIGHT MADE A BIT MORE SPORTY AND BROUGHT BANG UP TO DATE' I can't remember another time when there was so much salt on the roads for such a long period. My poor Griff hasn't turned a wheel since it returned from having its new engine fitted nearly six weeks ago. The Clio Trophy hasn't moved, either, even though I purposely taxed it for the full 12 months this year so I could use it as a bit of light relief when my oh-so-sensible Honda Insight gets a bit too much. Ah,...

What The Trade Says

0 'Cracking to drive, b.it you already knew that,' says Chris Klinkert of Parva Prestige Cars. 'The difficulty for dealers is finding a nice one to retail because so many are modified or thrashed They're expensive to prep and margins are quite tight. Look for worn drfs, shockers, gearbox synchros, and ureven tyre wear. The motor is strong.' 0 The Clio 182 is by far the most fun I have ever had on four wheels,' says Greg Wyllie. Adding a high-reaving 2-litre engine to such a small ca- equals...

For your chance to be our guinea pig go to...

Pacani Huayra

To happen, but in initial tests the car has proved so fast in a gt traight line 235mph that there's talk of having to limit the top speed to avoid the need for the kind of incredibly expensive, bespoke lyies thai Veyton owners have to put up with. Speaking of the Veyron, acceleration is expected to be a match for the lOOObhp hypercar thanks to the I luayra tipping the scales at around 1390kg with fluids - that's over 550kg lighter than the mighty Bugatti. I Ioracio explains that to get the kerb...
