Dan Trent writes: 'Push your frontiers' says the Peugeot Teepee Outdoor's brochure.
Well my particular frontier was the hill at the end of the road and I pushed, I slithered and I left it at the bottom before walking back home.
Pitiful really, given its rufty tufty pretensions - raised ride height: check, black plastic body cladding: check - and 'Outdoor' tag. Especially considering Richard managed a far more treacherous journey in his BMW limo.

Now, slidey tail-out fun is welcome, but not when you’ve 100 miles to commute. It was a journey more eventful than even I currently appreciate. Here’s some highlights
It’s not often a car stumps us, but the heavily-disguised one in the following picture has got us scratching our heads.
It must be a VW Group car, because look at all the cars around. Or is it? Click on add a comment if you want to have a guess…
Richard Aucock writes: Well, I’ll be, I said to CJ. I don’t believe it.
But I knew as soon as I spotted VW man Gareth walking up the path that, somehow, he’d made it through the carnage. That our car was here. Delivery drivers, you see, have a certain something about them. Give me a football stadia full of folk, and I’ll pick out the delivery drivers for you. Most journos can.

But until now, I haven’t had the fortune of driving it. That changed today when Vauxhall delivered an Insignia 2.0T saloon.
What a motor! Forget any prejudices you have about the Vectra – this is an altogether different animal. In the metal it looks like a junior Jaguar XF, with chunky doors that make a satisfyingly Germanic ‘thunk’ when you shut them, leading to a premium interior that could easily be from the sector above. “Very swish” was my girlfriend’s reaction when she first seen it.
Dan Trent writes: Greetings from Spain and the launch of the Audi R8 V10.
Anyway, it's hardly ideal conditions for your first drive in a 525hp supercar. After being delayed by snow at home we got a quick run just now in the new uber R8 and it was ... interesting. I think lurking in the mist there might have been an amazing road but between the streams running across the tarmac and errant buses (how tight is that?!) it was all a bit stressful.
Richard Aucock writes: Nervous? You bet. Yesterday, I got up at 4.45am. To drive the 104 miles to work.
On the road with the landmark Lambos for special golden anniversary drive.
