Long Term Report 2019 – Volvo V60 d4 Inscription

Long Term Report 2019 – Mazda6 Tourer GT Sport Nav+

Long Term Report 2019 – Audi Q5 S line 2.0 TDI quattro

Final Report You’d swear I’d driven to Siberia and back, but no, just from Birmingham down to Silverstone. I guess this is the reality of driving in the depths of winter; clean cars are a myth. It seems somewhat fitting

Peugeot 5008 GT BlueHDi 180

Long Term Report 2018 – Citroen C4 Cactus Flair BlueHDi 100
