BBC starts dismantling Top Gear studio; Oisin Tymon won’t press charges against Clarkson
I wonder does that mean that they'll soon be a spare studio next to an unused race track/airstrip up for rent in Dunsfold, by, lets say, Sky, Discovery or Netflix?

2016 Opel Astra spied with slightly less camouflage
I wonder if they axe the 3-door GTC, will they still make a 3dr of the regular version? Like with the Golf and especially not the Focus? ;) I hope this means that Opels next gen of coupe will be an Insignia-based derivative! Calibra!!!

Mercedes announces a pickup truck is coming before the end of the decade
Wow, imagine a CLA 45AMG pick-up. What a mouthwatering prospect! I'd imagine that the pick-up their most likely going to develop will be based on the ML, or GLE, or whatever they're calling that model these days!

Opel will exit Russia in December; Chevrolet range reduced
The only thing is that Opel's aren't built in Russia, so any hit Opel take will primarily be at it's German and other european-based factories. There may be some unemployment in Opel dealerships in Russia however...

BMW 1-Series FWD sedan rendered
With the success of the A3 saloon and CLA, I see great things for this little beemer!

Opel will exit Russia in December; Chevrolet range reduced
I know the Russian economy is on its knees, but this is a worrying sign for Opel. After first branching out to Oz, and then cutting that after only one year and now Opel are further shrinking their market base by receding out of Russia. Not great signs at all.

Irish police seizes 18 BMWs after these were registered as having smaller engines
In Ireland, it was per CC up until 2008, after which they based it on CO2. Pre 2008, the max tax was on anything over 2999cc, and is approx €1500. Now everything post-2008 is based on CO2 emissions. Highest "G" band is €2350 each year, and the lowest for EV's is €120 per year.

Irish police seizes 18 BMWs after these were registered as having smaller engines
The road tax alone on an Opel Insigna OPC is €2350 per annum, thats a bit extreme if you ask me...

UK police seizes Vauxhall Corsa for being tuned
Insurance is also a big issue. The higher output the car, the higher risk, especially for erratic young drivers. I doubt a driver in his teens would get insurance on a 2.0 hot hatch.

UK police seizes Vauxhall Corsa for being tuned
I wonder was the 2.0 sourced from the same Astra VXR that it got its alloys? In that case I can see why they seized it, considering a standard 1.4 Corsa has 89bhp and that engine produces 240bhp!
