Tell me more about the new Audi Q5.

Hi, do you know if the new Audi Q5 will be sold in 190hp diesel, automatic with front-wheel drive or will they be quattro only with this engine/gearbox combination? Is the quattro permanent or part time or how does it work?

Many thanks...

How to sort out ownership of NI automobile?

I swapped my old van and SUV for an 09 Hyundai Coupe on NI plates and I filled out the log book when I bought it and sent it away to Swansea like it said on it. They have sent it back saying that I need to sort out the log book over in Ireland. Where do I go to do something like that?

Which €25,000 crossover to go for?


I am looking at buying a second-hand (161 or 162) SUV, value approx €25,000. I drive 80 miles a day on fairly good roads for work, and mainly rural roads. Have had test drives on both the Nissan Qashqai and Renault Kadjar and they are both a bit big, although the Renault Captur is too small.

Any suggestions on "inbetween" sizes? Don't have kids so big boots and roomy cabins are not important. More interested in sturdy and reliable.

Automatic Hyundai ix35: higher tax?

Hello, in your review of the Hyundai ix35 CRDi 2.0-litre on November 24, 2010 you state that the CO2 emissions are 147g/km. I have bought that model registered in 2011 and the emissions are 187g/km on the reg. cert resulting in much higher road tax.

Can you explain the difference please?

Thank you
