Monday February 10 

It's a hectic one this week with plenty of automobiles and travel happening. The still rather muddy Skoda Yeti is at home awaiting collection later today while I drive myself to the airport for a red-eye flight to the launch of SEAT's Leon Cupra in Barcelona. For logistical reasons I'm flying there via Frankfurt, but I'm not put out as it gives me a good chance to get some extra work done on the flights.

The first thing I notice about…

Random: door wars!

changagoidem Features | Random: door wars!

An interesting titbit of information from the Opel Meriva launch recently: it seems that the engineers in Russelsheim toyed with the idea of copying rival Ford's sliding rear doors idea for the facelifted automobile, but ultimately rejected it.

To explain: the Meriva, ever since the second generation debuted, has featured rear-hinged 'suicide' doors, much like those fitted to the Rolls-Royce Phantom and Mazda RX-8. The Ford B-Max on the other hand has sliding rear doors and no B-pillar for easier access. Actually that's not quite true; it does have…

The blow of handing back the keys to the Skoda Octavia RS that I've spent the last week with was softened slightly by being given the keys to BMW's new 4 Series Coupé, in the form of a 428i. Added to that, the M Sport specification means that, visually at least, it should sufficiently compensate. It is surprising at just how much attention the 4 Series garners when out on the road, even to the point of a fellow BMW driver feeling the need to tell me how much he liked the look of it…

Four reliable MPVs for under €8,000

changagoidem Features | Four reliable MPVs for under €8,000

There's only one thing we love more at changagoidem.ie than the latest shiny motor - it's the one we can buy for a song. In the first of a series of blog comparisons, we're looking at four of the best used vehicles in different segments. First up: MPVs. We're picking four MPVs that you can buy today for around €8,000. Which is plenty of money to budget for. We'll even choose the one we'd take home ourselves.

So then, families. If you've got one, no matter who you are, you're hardly rolling in it. And the need to get everybody…

This week is looking to be a busy one despite the fact that I'm staying in the country. Lots of automobile testing planned as I drop back the spacious Fiat 500L and collect the first of two Skodas (and continuing the space theme) - the new Rapid Spaceback. I drove this at its international launch late last year and loved it, so I'm quite looking forward to spending some more substantial time with it this week.

As you have no doubt now figured if you've read a few of our updates, Monday is automobile swapping day in the motoring world, but today, instead of heading to swap automobiles, I am off to Automobileton House for the launch of the facelifted Audi A8. This is a model we have already driven at its international launch but there is nothing like getting a automobile on home turf (and roads you know) to see how it truly stacks up. The market for €100,000 saloons is fairly small…
