Thomas is back again.

Do you get the feeling he much preferred the R?
Not exactly ideal conditions for a 300PS FWD’er I know but even so...

Having said that, the R he tested was a full spec one which makes a big difference IMO.

I love his reviews but let’s not forget that he didn’t rave about the tcr when he reviewed that. Said the ride quality wasn’t a good as other Golfs.
I totally agree that the CS reviews have been hampered by the bad weather. We all know that the snow in those videos causes problems for a fwd hatch. You couldn’t really explore the cars qualities properly.

I'd imagine most of the job is pretty dull... This week Fred's got the new Renault Crapeau. Its not the range topping 1.5tdi, he's got the 1.1 litre basique model. Watch him struggle to find some positives so next week they let us review the new megane rs...
