Some cars are truly endearing in look, touch and feel. And they convince you even more once you are behind the wheel. One of such cars is the latest Renault Mégane. Under the experienced hand of Laurens van den Acker this Renault has gained in stylishness and character. Competition and painstaking research have further transformed the Renaults over the years into perfect driving machines. Smooth, responsive, powerful, agile, frugal.  A joy to drive and own. This Mégane is no exception. Just read further.

We drove the Jaguar F-Pace 3.0 D AWD: a thoroughbred for all seasons…

fpac1sm

When a maker of thoroughbred, feline performance automobiles builds an AWD fully fledged SUV, you can expect the result to turn heads.

Indeed, it did. The F-Pace is not only stunning on the displays of motor shows and at international presentations, but also on the road. We put the F-Pace through its paces (literally) in the 3 liter V6 Turbodiesel version, coupled to the 8 speed automatic transmission. It lived up to anything we expected from it, just read further…

Our Jag goes into winter retreat..

It is always an exquisite pleasure to drive our classic Jag, but with the first wintery and stormy days coming up it is time to give our faithful Type S a well deserved rest.

As the Jag is lately beset with (slowly) leaking fuel tanks, we decided to get the car checked out and repaired, while it is standing protected in winter.

So we acquired the expert services of Didier Spiessens, who will solve the tank problems and keep the car well cared for in his premises.

We will soon tell you more about all this and treat you also on a full report about the activities of his firm Personal Car Services. We show you here some photos when he collected our car. More about the further developments soon…
