If a golf actually turned heads, then they would not need to mindlessly rev their vacuum cleaners for attention. Vrrr paaa.

We must forgive them. They are enjoying the computer sounds their cars pipe into the cabin to cover up the vacuum sounds. They are just worried people think they have a vivo - or they are not sure themselves..

I'll take a GTI as a daily (well an Arteon cos I like sedans, even though it might technically not be one) - fanfookingtastic car; heck I'd take a Golf 5 or 6 GTI

Would rather save the money and buy a I20 or somethhing as a daily and use the money to buy a proper weekend car.GTI drivers have such a bad reputation that i cant be associated with them.

The June 2019 issue of Car magazine refers.
A Suzuki Ignis has joined its long term fleet and the 1.2 motor is reported to have three cylinders.
FFS if a friggin journalist can't even get that right what credibility does whatever follows have?
Has that mojo ever bothered looking at the engine?
Does the stupid prick even know how to open the bonnet?
Is the **** tone deaf that he is unable to discern the difference between the sound of a three cylinder motor and a four cylinder engine?
If it is just slapgat standard of proof editing then Car magazine is much of a muchness as Wheels 24.

I prefer not to mention the name/channel but there is this local car YouTuber (male) who reviews a number of cars & I legit never hear him say anything bad about any of the cars he gets for testing.

Been watching said reviews for a few years.

The Mr Bean clone or Amateur Trilby hour? Both dire.

Clearly Zuma has joined the staff of Car magazine!
Check page 87.
The price of a Isuzu D-Max 3,0 TD 4x4 LX is listed as:
R6006 700.

WHAT A FCUKKING JOKE.

In my book a magazine that specialises in cars should have all technical specs and any figures pertaining thereto correct. - 100% correct!

Why do I continue to subscribe?
Because it is still cheaper than toilet roll.
