Superchips Renaultsport Megane vs Ford Focus RS - Auto Express
Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/videos/featuresvideos/265933/superchips_renaul tsport_mgane_video.html#ixzz1HbYQTomh Extra performance doesn't come cheap -- well not usually anyway. But for £445, Renaultsport Megane 250 owners can get their cars' computer reprogrammed by Superchips to Boost power from 247bhp to around 300bhp. So what is the effect on performance? To find out we raced a Superchips-tuned Mégane against the standard Renaultsport Mégane 250 over a standing quarter mile sprint. And then compared the two in a fourth-gear rollon from 50mph for good measure.

BMW M135i vs Mercedes A45 AMG review - Auto Express
Mercedes A45 AMG review: http://bit.ly/ZIf71Q BMW M135i review: http://bit.ly/12lsvKI Subscribe to our YouTube channel http://bit.ly/11Ad1j1 Subscribe to the mag http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt Premium car manufacturers have traditionally stayed away from hot hatch market, but that's no longer the case. In this video review we have the BMW M135i, and we are testing it against the Mercedes A45 AMG - with a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine it's going to be a stern rival for the BMW. The BMW gets a six-cylinder engine, revs to 7000rpm but peak torque is at just 1300rpm, so it has instant power. It does come in manual, but we've got the eight-speed automatic gearbox. We took it around our track in just 1 minute 14 seconds. As for the Mercedes, it's £5,000 more expensive than the BMW, so that's something to consider straight away. It's got 40bhp more, but the same torque. It's a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, and a dual-clutch gearbox. It's four-wheel drive, meaning body control is really good around the corners - but, on the flip side, the ride is quite stiff. It did beat the BMW around the track though, in a final time of 1 minute, 13 seconds. So, which hatchback comes out on top? If you want to be the fastest against the stopwatch, with amazing body control, choose the Mercedes. But, if you want to spend less money and have more fun, go for the BMW. See our video review and make your own decision.

2014 Opel Astra OPC/VXR (280hp) - DRIVE & SOUND (1080p FULL HD)
The full Drive & Sound with the 2013/2014 Opel (Vauxhall) Astra OPC (VXR) powered by a 2.0 four-cylinder turbo with 280 hp and 400 Nm of tourque. To make it short, this car is way better than I expected it. Especially the great sound never comes through on YT-videos but in real life it has a really deep and agressive Exhaust note that is way more special than what comes out of a Golf 7 GTI, I would say its even better than the Scirocco R's sound, but that probably depends on your taste. As you see in the video the performance is really really impressive which gives me the feeling that this car would at least deliver 300 hp on a Dyno. Next very positve point is the front axle differential lock that works superb when you go through corners, grip on AWD level!!! In addition to this I found the electronic FlexRide suspension a very good compromise between long distance travel comfort and stableness when you go into OPC mode.
