  1. You guys are going to have to give a reason why you gave these awards so until you can give some facts about the cars this is for all the sucker.

  2. Love to see that compared to carwow your not completely biased towards Audi and other vag products, much better.

  3. So… except for a few Mercs and one BMW there were very few German cars here then. Not one Audi? Are you sure? And the BMW 3 series is not the benchmark of the class anymore? Hmmmm 😛

  4. Imagine travelling to the future and finding the Landrover Defender is a midsize SUV and sheep farming is a sport.
