changagoidem Features | Embracing the slowness

It can hardly come as a surprise to you that we, the changagoidem team, are often compared to the Top Gear team. It's inevitable. Top Gear has done the remarkable job of, in just under a decade, taking motoring and general petrol-headedness off the specialist (nerdy, anorak-y, lonely...) shelf and placing it front and screaming centre in people's minds. People who know nothing about automobiles watch Top Gear. People who have no interest in driving, who couldn't tell understeer from oversteer from any-steer. They love it, in their millions, worldwide. And we, the rest of the hard working motoring writing…

changagoidem Features | 8 Top Tips to Save on Automobile Insurance Costs

According to the latest data, automobile insurance has overtaken fuel prices as the biggest concern for motorists. And with good reason: as Completeautomobile.ie discovered late last year insurance premiums are on the rise while the drop in crude oil prices mean automobile owners are paying less at the pumps.

So how do you save on automobile insurance costs?

Irish consumers are typically averse to switching service providers and while we are more likely to switch automobile insurance provider than we are our banks the uptake is still relatively…

changagoidem Features | Friday Find 6th February 2015

The Volkswagen Golf is amongst the most popular automobiles in Ireland, finishing 2014 atop the sales charts having sold more, in one model, than the entire Audi range combined. So far, 2015 looks to be no different with the Golf finishing comfortably ahead of the second placed Ford Focus in the busy January period.

Demand for the Golf is strong but there are savings to be made. For this week's #FridayFind we present a used Golf in popular Comfortline specification with the all-important 1.6-litre TDI diesel engine. This particular model is an ex-demo automobile from Michael Moore Volkswagen in…

Eight top tips on how to prepare your automobile for its NCT

changagoidem Features | Eight top tips on how to prepare your automobile for its NCT

There was a time when being caught without a valid NCT involved a nod and a wink and a promise to get the automobile tested, but that has all changed. Since December 2014, driving without a valid certificate means a fixed charge penalty notice and three penalty points.

Figures show that over 50 per cent of automobiles - or more than 650,000 - failed their NCT in 2013, including 4,500 that had to be towed away from test centres, deemed unroadworthy. Sautomobiley, but the NCT itself is not sautomobiley and even the least mechanically minded can follow our…

Revisited: SEAT Toledo

changagoidem Features | Revisited: SEAT Toledo

It's been a while since I drove the SEAT Toledo. Indeed, I ran a long-term one for a few months a while back so I knew it well enough to not feel the need to drive another. But this week I ended up at the wheel of the latest version equipped with the iTech pack for a few days and it was a good reminder that we motoring journalists really should revisit automobiles later in their lives rather than just writing about them when they're brand new.

The Toledo has a few clear-cut advantages and disadvantages. First up, despite…

First Impressions: Volkswagen Golf Estate

changagoidem Features | First Impressions: Volkswagen Golf Estate

After a long hiatus from Irish shores, the Volkswagen Golf Estate is officially back. The first thing you notice about this Golf Estate is just how smart it looks. In fact it is possibly the best example, leaving the new Passat aside, of just how upmarket Volkswagen is getting with its new automobiles. There is more than enough space than you'll most likely need on a day-to-day basis and that rear tailgate extends high enough to give excellent access. 

As for the drive, the 1.6-litre TDI packs 110hp and comes with a five-speed manual transmission.…
