VW Passat Tuning

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

The VW Passat was based on the very successful floorplan from the A4. Originally intended to be an executive saloon it makes a great family car to people who are interested in driving. The chassis and handling are superb and a car of this size handles like a much smaller car would. Because it comes […]

VW Polo Tuning

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

VW’s small family car was the Polo. It has had a long production run and shares many features with its bigger brother the Golf. As it is much smaller and lighter than the Golf the Polo makes a good tuning project and becomes a credible track day fun car with the right modifications. Probably because […]

Honda S2000 Tuning

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

The S2000 was the fun sports car produced by Honda and really shows what can be done when a car company puts their minds to it. Production of the S2000 sadly stopped in 2009 but we are eagerly awaiting the release of the Mk2 or S3000. The S2000 2.0 NASP engine has literally be tuned […]

Toyota Celica Tuning

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

The Toyota Celica was a sporty car and the best that Toyota could offer after the stunning supra. The Best model to have from a tuning point of view is without a doubt the 2.0 Turbo Carlos Saints version with a 4 wheel drive system. This has lots of power and great handling. All Celicas […]

Toyota Corolla Tuning

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

The corolla holds the caveat as the most popular car ever made. I owned one for a while and I have to confess it was a bit boring to drive. (It was actually a pre facelift 1997  model with the 1.3 engine.) Having driven most of the range the 1.6 is the best proposition for tuning […]

Audi A3 Tuning

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

It took Audi a while to see the need for a Golf rival and it half heartedly produced the A3. The early models were only available as 3 door versions and rear leg room is cramped. In 2000 a 5 door model was added and the Mk2 A3 addressed the problem of cramped rear leg […]

Honda Civic Tuning

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

The Honda Civic is probably one of the best supported cars from the aftermarket car parts tuning scene. Having been around for so long it is very well developed and due to this it has legendary reliability and the Civic engines are strong and have a lot to give the potential Civic tuner. There are also […]

Toyota Yaris Tuning

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

The Yaris is Toyotas attempt to catch the youth market. It makes a great car and had a nice high roof line. The Yaris was not intended to be a sports car but it can be turned into one with some imaginative tuning. Now they are selling on the used market for reasonable prices a […]

VW Golf tuning

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

The VW Golf was the original hot hatch. It has now had a number of revisions and the latest puts it fairly and squarely into the realms of a fun hot hatch again. It is one of the most popular models of car around and there is a thriving aftermarket parts supply with a full […]
