European cars sold here as well as discussion relating to the European automotive market.
Welcome to the imported auto discussion rooms. Whilst we’re a Ford forum, many of us are car enthusiast and share a passion for many different cars irrespective of the badge. This is where these rooms come in.
We encourage everyone to discuss anything with four wheels but remember that...
It's been rumoured for a while, and here it is.
Looks like everyone else's car industries are on the up, whilst ours plummets!
I'm a HUGE FORD person when comes 2 U.S. & International Ford cars (i.e. FORD FOCUS RS500,I'd like to request print brochure on the formentioned car,But I'm told to PDF the brochure rather than receiving a print brochure,My question is how I can request print brochures on International Ford Cars
Doing my normal search landrover and BMW search on ebay and came across the future.
battery leased at GBP 30 a month and its covered for run out of battery towing.
I want self driving Taxis, it's been ages since I've had a taxi driver that had a clue!
One wonders if any of the players in our automotive manufacturing sector were subsidiaries of Chinese firms, would they be so keen to close down? I don't think they would
Now the Bentley buyer can have that warm fuzzy feeling of being selectively environmentally responsible in the knowledge that a bit less water was used to make their car so long as they don't undo all the good work by actually driving it, thereby causing it to use fuel! :D
Maybe they could give the suits at Ford Australia & Holden lessons on standing up the head office overseas!
A public relations disaster! The bean counters are probably the root cause of this mess spiraling out of control.
Essentially, it's a little brother to the 8C and looks great. It's powered by a 1.7 DIT 4cyl producing around 160kWs being sent to the rear wheels.
Here's Volvo's Universe concept which gives as a glimpse of where Volvo is heading now that it's under Chinese control. It all looks good with the exception of the front (what's with the Ssanygong bonnet?)
We've recently seen Porsche reveal the all-new 911 and here's the all new Boxter. Looks great!
This one I'm sort of keen on, I had one of the last one's in Japan with the V10, which was great, but the new one is 'only' with a 4.0 V8. 0-100 is in 4.2 seconds, much faster than the V10 which was 5.2 seconds. How to compare it who knows, the larger BMW, Benz and Jaguars aren't nearly as quick....
In the US now Jaguar have released the Supercharged 3.0 V6 and the 2.0 4 turbo, from Ford as in the Falcon in the XF, which finally puts the car, which I think looks great since the facelift, right head to head with the Germans.
Now all of them have pretty much the same specs:
Audi A6: 2.0t...
Looks fantastic! Great photos too.
He was responsible for some magnificent cars and will be missed.
Basically the 301 is Peugeots entry into the next big segment to hot up the entry a-segment.
The VW Group will release its platform soon with the Skoda MissionL / SEAT Toledo / SVW Santana / FVW Jetta.
For Peugeot this could sell well here as it looks abit like the Pug 405 in some views.
Jaguar have announced recently the following two engines, no specifics on what cars but the details are as follows:
2.0 litre 4 cylinder turbo, 240 hp/ 174 Kw (as in EB4)
3.0 litre V6 supercharged...
Fiat had their version of the Dodge Dart, The Viaggio. Press photo's made it look quite upmarket, it's quite plain in the flesh - and a white show car??? come on.
Most interesting thing Volvo had was the Flexible TFT Dashboard on the V40 that can be configured any way you like - cool
A little bit of a beat up in the authors claim of it being a $100 Million recall! That figure is the combined retail value of the cars affected not the actual cost of the recall. Still it'd hardly impress you if you paid out $1 Million of hard earned (well hard stolen probably) for a car billed by...

Audi's new A3 has been leaked a few weeks early.
It looks fantastic IMO although I fear Audi will face the same problem (if it is one?) BMW did back in the 90s. Their whole range looks like different versions of the same thing. The front looks very A4 and the side profile looks very A1.

Well sort of. An official photo has been leaked, and IMO, it looks fantastic!
Apparently it's based on the new Cherokee. It has a 335kW 4.7L V8 mated to an 8 speed automatic transmission.

I've been to a lot of Car Factories before: principally BMW, VW, Audi, even worked at a couple of them in the adjacent offices, even do now, so I am sort of over the initial fascination of seeing the things put together (although I still find it great to wander in and watch every now and again). ...
Looks great. I'm a little unsure about the headlights, but otherwise, they've done well.
BMW and Toyota in long-term research collaboration

Under the MOU, the two...
Well the merger between the two has been in motion for nealy two years now and still nothing has come to fruition here in Australia. Looking at the Y.T.D sale figures of the Group here in Australia, all brands except Chrysler have seen an improvement to their sales, from low bases, but I would've...
