    Ownership Verified: Good news, everyone: teeb's new Dacia Duster!

    New Dacia Duster in blue. Handy for where I live. Sorry it's not an MX-5! Some commonly-asked questions: Does it handle OK, or is it wallowy? Yes. Dacia? Why? Romanians are known for high-quality workmanship. And it annoys the UKIP peoples. Have you planned any mods? I am going to install a...

    Spykers now being made in UK; soon to realise why everyone else left

    Sauce. The UK : We make black cabs, Spykers, Nissan Micras and Lotuses (Lotii?)! From a more serious point of view, this looks like a gamble. They're banking on the UK pound's value staying low in order to keep costs low. If the pound suddenly becomes strong, they're in more trouble than...

    [is crap] May, Hammond in pay standoff?

    Link Why do I think this is crap? It's in the Guardian, who have been a bit anti-Top Gear in the past, and there's no actual source. We'll wait and see.

    Is discrimination ever acceptable?

    I've been thinking a lot, partly due to this thread and partly due to a proposed bill in the UK. At the moment, positive discrimination (or affirmative action) is unlawful in the UK and quotas/selective systems are not permitted. The bill seeks to change that by allowing firms to discriminate...

    The new Euro Ka has sneaked out, thanks to Auto Express. Same platform as the Fiat 500, so should drive OK. Three powertrains from the get-go, with a 68 hp 1.2L, a 100 hp 1.4L, and a 1.3L, 50 mpg diesel. Rumor has it that a hotter Ka ST is on its way as well, with 150 hp coming from a...
