Is less really more?

changagoidem Features | Is less really more?

Volkswagen Group Ireland recently held a refresher day at Mondello Park, bringing 40 vehicles from Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda, SEAT and Volkswagen Commercials along for journalists to sample and reacquaint themselves with. Sitting in the paddock were the likes of the Audi A3 Cabriolet, Skoda Superb L&K, Volkswagen Amarok Canyon and SEAT Leon ST FR, all with tanks full of juice and keys in the ignitions for the assembled journalists to sample on the roads around north Kildare.

Of course, as the event was taking place at a racing circuit, the various brands had also brought along some fast toys…

Monday June 30

As if I hadn't already had my fill of classic automobiles at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, my first day back in Dublin for a while would see the arrival of Mk1 Volkswagen Golf on the driveway. Getting to be amongst the first to drive a multitude of new automobiles on a regular basis is indeed both a privilege and a pleasure, but I'm particularly looking forward to driving this Golf. Volkswagen Ireland sourced it recently enough and it would seem that the previous owners have been most kind to it too. I just need…

Monday June 23

It's getting well and truly into silly season in terms of both national and international launches, so having a relatively quiet Monday is a welcome treat. After dropping back the Opel Insignia Country Tourer I nip across to Baldonnel to collect the latest version of Range Rover's Evoque. The styling is aging well and despite the popularity of the baby Rangie, it still looks fresh. My particular test automobile is equipped with the new and more efficient nine-speed automatic transmission, which will be put to the test later in the week.

Monday May 26

Despite flying back into Dublin late last night before from an excellent Concorso d'Eleganza event in Italy, it was an early start to not only turn copy around from that event, but also from a Lexus NX preview the previous Friday. An interesting automobile that, and although it won't do huge numbers in its segment, will prove to be a hugely important automobile for Lexus I think. Naturally, being a Monday, today also involved a degree of automobile swapping, but thankfully I have just the one to collect this week -…

Automobilejacking: steps to take to protect yourself

changagoidem Features | Automobilejacking: steps to take to protect yourself

Automobilejacking: it used to be something on the news in far flung places like South Africa or the United States, but it has recently travelled across oceans and begun to take place in Ireland. At the time of writing there have been five reported automobilejackings in the country within the past month. While hardly reaching epidemic proportions it is a worrying trend and one that is worth protecting against. But what do you do when someone goes Grand Theft Auto on you and tries to pull you out of your automobile?

In fairness, if someone has you by the scruff…

Skoda celebrates 40th year of RS

changagoidem Features | Skoda celebrates 40th year of RS

It has been 40 years, believe it or not, since the letters RS were first seen on a Skoda. The Czech company is now celebrating that fact by, er, looking back on RS Skodas and giving us a wonderful pic of the current Octavia RS alongside the glorious 200 RS racer of 1974.

Based on the rear-engined 110R coupé launched in 1970, the first RS Skodas were the 180 and 200 racing automobiles. Designed to compete in prestigious, higher-volume racing classes, they used either 1.8- or 2.0-litre engines (hence the 180 and 200 monikers), had a new…
