“Which way do you vote?” The sales manager at work asked me that question in the middle of a crowded office today. Britain’s next general election is only weeks away, I suppose he was curious. I told him it depends because I don’t have a brand loyalty. I approach voting the same way as I […]


Car Bomb

17Oct16

I heard a thud, coming from where the engine is. I was driving to work this morning in the dark, way before 5am. The engine has never made that noise before. It sounded like something pretty serious. I slowed down, opened the window and listened, but I didn’t hear the noise again. I continued on […]


What is a catalytic converter? It sounds like a part on the Starship Enterprise. Well my car needs two of them. For the past couple of months, I’ve spent over a thousand pounds on the Mackmobile to make a ‘check engine’ light go out on the dashboard. It’s been to three different garages, who’ve gradually replaced […]


The Mackmobile is sending me broke! A couple of months ago a light on my dash board came on. It was a little picture of an engine and underneath it said, “Check engine, visit workshop!” I took it back to the place I bought the car from just over a year ago. They charged me […]

Why are BMW drivers so angry? A recent study of 2,837 drivers showed that they’d seen more aggression from drivers of BMWs than any other make of car. Land Rover, Audi, Subaru and Vauxhall made up the top five. Looking at that list, the one thing those cars have in common is that they’re all […]

I never liked Porsche, I always preferred Jaguars. Then about three years ago, something changed. Maybe it’s an age thing, Porsches started to talk to me. Just before Christmas, driving home from work in my Mazda, I noticed a basalt black 2005 Porsche Cayman S on a car lot in Hitchin. The car seduced me, […]


I nearly managed to cheer myself up this weekend. I’ve been miserable lately, not because of anything specific, just various things which include an insect bite that’s been bothering me all week. I don’t know what bit me on the tummy, all I know is I’ve reacted to it in a bad way and it’s […]


Fobbed Off!

16Dec14

I broke the law this week and I’m glad I did. My car key got damaged. The key blade and electronic guts of it were fine, I just needed a new key shell for the fob bit of it. I called around and the cheapest genuine key shell for my car from the dealer was […]
