It certainly is taxed. A percentage of the list price of the car is added to your salary and you then pay the tax on it as though it's income (it's classed as a benefit in kind by the taxman). The...

They do have such a scheme that covers deposits up to 100,000 Euros, however if the ultimate guarantor - in this case the Greek Government - don't have any money either then you're stuffed.

This engine delivers virtually identical figures to Nissan's 1.2L turbo that we have in my wife's Qashqai. Very smooth, it pulls strongly from low revs like a diesel. I've been very impressed with...

You're right in as much as the BBC bought the rights back off Clarkson so he no longer owns it, but BrettJacks is also right in as much as he made the show - Top Gear was dead and buried before he...

Yes, he's gone, not unexpected. Much as I like Clarkson it was probably inevitable.

They pay him 14 million for Top Gear, but that includes 8 million buying back his share of the rights to the show. I'm sure he could get more from other broadcasters but then he'd have to pander to...

You're probably right - "winningest" is just one of the those words invented by sports commentators and is grammatically incorrect.

I don't have that much of a problem with "math" except when some...

One that sets my teeth on edge is "winningest", as in "the winningest coach in football" - it's not a word and it makes the user sound like a moron.

Another one that puzzles me is "math", as in...

Your first photo is not a Jaguar, it is a tribute to the E type produced by a Swiss company called the Lionhart (see dash).

The Clio, 208, Captur, and C3 are far and away the best selling cars in France so that tells you that most cars are A and B segment.
