  1. It wouldn't be a CarWow review without the centre console wobble test as well as the stick up the fake vents and exhausts 😉
  2. Pricing is interesting. I wonder if that will also happen here.
  3. The good news is that GM's are back on, we had the first one in April. The not so good news is that numbers attending are limited to 40 people in total in the Willis room with fixed seating positions, social distancing, no tea break, masks, etc. The situation is constantly being reviewed by Whitehorse City Council so these rules could change at any time so hopefully we can get back to normal in the near future.

  4. Steamrail are back on track. Passing through Parkdale yesterday.
  5. Cheap flimsy plastic interior in an Audi ! Quote from CarWow "If there’s a finer Audi interior out there, we haven’t seen it, because the e-tron GT’s is superb."
  6. Not doubting that dynos vary as they certainly do, as is the ability of the person using them to interpret the data. What gives some credence to these claims though is that the stated factory numbers for the latest generation of this engine are only slightly higher than the last gen and yet the Mk8 R weight has sadly gained nearly a 100kg. If it's all down to launch control tuning VW must be using the same clever programmers who were responsible for dieselgate 😉
  7. "The process involves electrolysis that splits water into its two components – oxygen and hydrogen – and then combining the hydrogen with air (after filtering out CO2) to form synthetic methanol. The methanol can be converted into climate-friendly fuel using an MTG (methanol to gasoline) technology to be licensed and supported by ExxonMobil."
  8. Yep, wheel dyno and as it's a Pommy wheel dyno the Mk8 R has clocked 172mph and does 0-60mph in 4 seconds so the numbers are probably near the mark. What I don't understand is that you think their dyno is wrong but the one you use is right. Explain that to me.
