Audi

With Audi recently announcing that it is to add 11 all-new models to its line-up barely a motor show will pass without some sort of concept. The first is the allroad shooting brake, thought to preview a forthcoming Audi Q1 model. It's also expected to hint at how the all-new Audi TT will look, and it features that automobile's interior - with a few concept automobile touches. With the quattro laserlight starring at CES in Las Vegas it may well make the trip to Detroit to bolster the Audi stand too, laser headlights and all.

2013 road trip part four: how did the automobiles do?

changagoidem Features | 2013 road trip part four: how did the automobiles do?

At the bottom of this piece you'll find links to the first three parts of this series explaining where we went and what we saw and all that, but one of the primary reasons for doing this road trip was to test largely equivalent petrol and diesel versions of the same automobile against each other. The BMW 3 Series is ideal for the job. It's comfortable, handsome, desirable even in its lowliest guise and genuinely great to drive. BMW Ireland kindly loaned us a 316d and a 316i, both in SE specification.

Now we'll admit that our road trip…

2013 road trip part two: winter driving

changagoidem Features | 2013 road trip part two: winter driving

You may think me mad (lord knows, everyone else does), but I love driving in winter, so I was rubbing my hands together with anticipation as we got ready to set off on our epic drive. Of course, when I say I love driving in winter, what I actually mean is I love driving on cold, crisp days, cold enough for frost, but not cold enough for ice and with plenty of low winter sun to exercise my Serengetis.

What I don't mean is driving in the sort of conditions that we suffered for the start of our trip…

2013 road trip part one: best laid plans

changagoidem Features | 2013 road trip part one: best laid plans

It would be fair to say that the plans for our first big trip as the now-bigger changagoidem.ie team adopted somewhat of a fluid-state on the run up to the day itself. Thankfully after years of being automobile journalists we're all fairly well used to having plans change right up to the last minute without it causing us any real stress. The two things we did have lined up in good time were the most important - the automobiles. For this trip we would be using two almost identical BMW 3 Series saloons in the form of a 316d…

2013 road trip part three: Ireland's roads

changagoidem Features | 2013 road trip part three: Ireland's roads

A few years back I had reason to undertake a drive to Cork. At that time this involved travelling on poorly lit roads that twisted and turned and meandered through every village and hamlet along the way resulting in a projected four-hour travel time taking closer to five in reality.

While the journey was a rarity for me it was one that was undertaken by many all the time. Travelling salesmen, couriers and HGV drivers would make the same trip everyday (along with both Shane and Neil as they came up to visit the real capital). Nowadays of course it…

Automobile servicing: the hidden shock and awe

changagoidem Features | Automobile servicing: the hidden shock and awe

It's a bitter wind that's blowing out there. Up and down the country, motor dealers are having the toughest time selling luxury and performance automobiles. So much so, that those previously unattainable and enormously desirable models are now within our grasp. You want performance?  Check. Desire a plutocratic luxury limo? Step this way. How about something with sub-superautomobile credentials and immense glamour? Of course you do, start her up. There's rarely been a better time to live the motoring dream.

However, be warned. There's one thing you may have missed. One that's dead easy to forget about when buying the…
