Californian police stops Google autonomous car for... driving too slowly
This "thing" is a total JOKE! Where are all the safety features like air bags, etc.How does it cede control to the driver, Oh there is not one.How does it change lane in heavy traffic with 'normal' cars, how does it know when to change lanes, or just slow down and stop at any point in the road and not care about 'normal' cars behind it?.All a crock Google, go away and not present yourself as some sort of fixer until you can show a real car that works as a normal car should, even Volvo has a way better system.

VW sets deadline for whistleblowers to come clean about illegal maneuvers
Again, ONLY VAG used the Bosch developed defeat Software Device, NO OTHER CAR MAKER USING BOSCH Diesel Tech software or hardware used this defeat software, ONLY VW knew it existed. Bosch allegedly warned VW not to use it in production, however, as I said before WHY did Bosch supply the code in the first place, Bosch needs to answer to this criminal behaviour too. We all know now why VW Diesels performance was so much better than other brands using basically the same Bosch hardware.

VW sets deadline for whistleblowers to come clean about illegal maneuvers
Umm, clearly you have not been following this issue. The majority of 2.0L VW diesel engines require more than a 'simple' software fix, something like 85% of the car park (2008-2014 production date) will need a hardware fix of more than one all new part, the other 15% 2015-MY will only require a 'simple' solution.

Audi begins production in Brazil, will build the company's first flex-fuel model
The world boom has gone, only one country I know of which has had 25 years of growth (small) without any recession and that is Australia which is slowly coming to a grinding halt now China has lost 3% of it's 10% growth, now to Only 7%, any nation in the world would give an arm and a leg Only 7% annual growth...apart from China the world is fecked...Debt is finally coming home to roost. No jobs, disaffected youth with up to 35% not employed in Europe/UK. World leaders who have not got a clue what to do.

Report indicates VW sent engineers to US to “fix” cars that failed to pass emissions tests
Wrong, the fix is for Worldwide, the German government has given VAG a few weeks to comply to a plan of action. I can not see how they can fix this without expensive add on hardware which will result in lower power and performance.

Amazon reportedly paid Clarkson, May, Hammond $250 million for 3-year, 36-episode deal
I would suggest this amount is for the TOTAL production budget including salaries, expenses, and everything else for ALL staff who are hired to do this series.No one in their right mind would give this out for ONLY 3 years and ONLY for 3 presenters, but then again this is the US, just borrow the money from someone and never pay it back...how much do they owe the world now, $17 trillion, never goes down only up, and they go on about Greece?

New MX-5 owner crashes his car right after delivery, Mazda replaces it
Very good, and very true, Mazda are going much better now after Ford got what they wanted in the 1980's~, how to build cars and make them reliable, how to treat their line workers and suppliers.

New MX-5 owner crashes his car right after delivery, Mazda replaces it
This is EXACTLY why I like MAZDA...A real CAR COMPANY who looks after their customers.This is why Mazda is so close to the #1 privately purchased new car brand in Australia, Mazda has slowly been nurturing their Mazda Dealer Network which looks after their customer base, and the net result is the highest Customer Retention Rate (CRR) ever seen down under...Owners keep coming back for a reason...If only MNAO would learn, but this gesture is a good start.

2016 Mazda CX-3 pricing starts at $19,960
Yep, this all new DK Mazda CX-3 is off the all new DJ Mazda 2 not sold in USA, NOT the BM Mazda 3. Only similarities with the Mazda 3 is the 2.0 detuned engine and transmissions (instead of the 1.5l), plus Mazda 3 brakes and tires, that is it.

Renewed Alfa Romeo museum opens its doors
Nice looking cars, but for those who actually lived through many of these cars when brand new from the late 60's, their on road reliability was atrocious...A reputation where I live has still never gone away, they sell in very small numbers even today.

Mazda rules out a high-performance MX-5
Well mine is 10 years younger than yours, so what, YOU keep going on about the same thing in every MX-5 post... There will NOT be a more powerful version, what YOU think Mazda needs does not resinate, as they are not going to do it... So I guess you will stay with your tired NB ;)

Mazda rules out a high-performance MX-5
Happy to see some of you get it...most never do until they own an MX-5. ...the FUN is not in the horsepower or perceived lack of (juvenile how big is your man rooster stuff), but in how it makes you feel and how connected you are and your senses to the car.

Mazda rules out a high-performance MX-5
I am not so sure about a higher powered or larger car off the ND platform/chassis. I can tell you now having looked at (in a lot of detail) the ND is a very lightweight set up, and there is zero room for 'official' HP and weight gains...it is just not engineered to take anymore.....Apart from the very first RX-7 (small) every MX-5 (apart from this ND one) has been re-engineered down from the RX-7 and RX-8....For Mazda to changed this up for a larger car with more HP it will cost a lot of cash, and I just do not see another volume seller for them (and that includes any RX-) which sadly just don't sell in the numbers needed.

Next generation Toyota GT86 could use Mazda MX-5 platform
While I will agree on the RX-8 was designed made before the NC. The new ND MX-5 has been engineered much lighter and has Zero capacity to increase power to weight and size without major upgrades of all suspension (hang on) parts. Somehow I don't think Mazda wants to go down this path, unless they are thinking a all new Mazda made sports car too, upgraded platform which will share with Toyota, Mazda definitely needs more annual units made to make money off the ND, as I don't see this Fiat thing being that successful, wait and see IF this Toyota arrangement includes Mazda making the new 86 for them. Although all the ND parts (Suspension) are different, the design and layout is the same as RX-8 and NC, front and rear, a brilliant set up, that is why Mazda kept it, as there is nothing better.

Chris Evans to host the new Top Gear, filming will start in a few weeks
Is this the same Chris Evans who does/did copy for EVO mag?, the one who said an MX-5 does not handle very well, I think it is?

Top Gear last extended episode trailer released [video]
May and Hammond were still contracted to host all of series 22, so they have to do it or face liabilities. Dope head Clarkson was sacked (dismissed) by his employer (BBC), they quite rightly want what they payed May and Hammond for, the BBC is a tax payer funded network.

Mazda highlights the MX-5's weight distribution [video]
Good to see MNAO using the same car rack for the 50:50 test they did on the old (2005-2015 NC MX-5) model, same results.Although the suspension is the same design as the NC, Mazda have finally made a easy to separated 3 bolt Rear Wheel Bearing Hub (no more pressing out or rear wheel bearings). All new M66M-6 speed manual trans and gone back to a 3 piece trans case, this ND also has a decent Oil Pan cover. Paint colors are boring.

Lexus brings facelifted ES with 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine to Shanghai
The Infotainment screen insert again looks bloody ugly, that sweeping top part over to the passenger side, I cant see the 'love'. Rest of dash and interior looks great, pity about the outside front of car.
