Don’t miss out on MOT and Servicing bargains

Here at iCarSharing we have come across a new service which promises to save time and money when it comes to sorting out your MOT test or Servicing appointment, so we thought we would share it with you.MOT tests apply to all road users, whether you drive a Used Nissan or a New Land Rover, there is no escaping! Often, people hastily turn to the first MOT garage they can think of to get their MOT renewed without even considering that there may be a cheaper option a minute or two down the road. Now though, a site called www.buyyourcar.co.uk has built a service which gives you access to pricing information from a variety of garages in your local area.icarrrrrBasically, the system works as follows, you enter the details of your model, you then enter your location and finally you click search. You will then be presented with a list of MOT and Car Servicing costs, offering you much more in the way of choice, giving you more chance of saving some money. The best part is; it takes seconds!

New Audi RS7 set for 2014

The Detroit Motor show has arrived baring many gifts, one of which is a glimpse at Audi’s new RS model, the RS7. It is a four-door coupe which is set to replace the RS6 Saloon and it will feature the same 552bhp 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 as the RS6 Avant. zThis kind of power makes for some pretty astonishing acceleration, making the RS7 able to do 0-62 in 3.9 seconds! The RS7 also has a top speed of 155mph, unless you opt for the Dynamic or Dynamic Plus option which allows you to supress the speed capper, in turn increasing the top speed to 174mph or 189mph respectively. The brakes are massive; necessary to tame such a powerful car. zzWith the RS7 you get torque vectoring, adaptive air suspension and Audis Sport Differential as standard. It is a very good looking vehicle and the styling is typical of Audi, but by no means is it boring. It looks like a thirsty car, and it is one, though it may not guzzle as much as you would expect: Thanks to cylinder deactivation technology, the RS7 can do 28.8mpg. zzzWhilst the RS7 was created primarily with the US market in mind it will be available in the UK and prices are expected to begin around £84,000 – £7,000 more than the RS6 Avant, but considerably cheaper than its main competitor the BMW M6, and similarly priced to the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG.

Do you think the RS7 will equal the standards set by the Audi RS3, RS4 and RS5?
