Mint Mini - 20th July, 2018

Time takes its toll on nearly every car. Wet winters, less than caring owners, rough roads and high miles finish most cars off inside 20 years. But every now and then a survivor pops up that defies time. At 41 years old this 1977 Mini 1000 looks like it has been drinking from the fountain of youth, and you can buy it. Read on...

Cute Coupe - 16th July, 2018

Turners Christchurch has an interesting selection of classics being auctioned at the moment but it’s this pretty Alfa GTV that catches the eye. It’s the right colour combination, has the right wheels and, for the driver, arguably the best engine. And it’s being sold with no reserve. Read on...

France or Croatia for the win? 13th July, 2018

The Football World Cup final takes place on Monday morning so we thought I’d dig through the Turners website for some interesting French and Croatian cars for sale right now (I’d been counting on an England win for this post obviously). Here are three of the best and, strangely, they are all French. Read on...

This 2016 Ford Mustang GT Fastback went for a swim and nearly drowned. Are your life guarding skills good enough to resuscitate this once proud steed or has the fresh water inundation spelled curtains on its short life? Read on...

Nearly New and Nearly All Gone - 6th July, 2018

Why buy new when you can buy nearly new? Turners has eight 2017 BMW X5s that you can buy right now. They are exactly one year old, have very low kilometres, loads of warranty and are many thousands of dollars cheaper than new. They are also selling faster than the German football team’s World Cup exit. Read on...

They DO make ‘em like they used to - 2nd July, 2018

Never has the phrase “they don’t make ‘em like they used to” been more wrong than when it’s applied to a 2016 Royal Enfield motorcycle. Sure it has been updated in a few areas but essentially this Royal Enfield Classic 350 is not much different to the original 1948 Bullet model making it the longest running motorcycle design in history.

The Velvet Hammer - 28th June, 2018

Where the Audi RS4 looks like a comfortable family car that belies its brutal performance, the RS5 coupe looks like it could be quite fast and it really, seriously is. But it still has an understated elegance that hides some of its true nature; a velvet hammer if you like. Read on...

K Pop Chart Toppers - 25th June, 2018

A few short years ago Korean brands were looked down on by car buyers who saw them as inferior. And, to be fair, who can forget the awful Daewoo Nubira or the Hyundai Pony? But in J.D Powers latest American new car customer satisfaction survey Korean manufacturers took out the top three spots. Read on...

Holy Horsepower, Batman - 20th June, 2018

Mazda’s third generation RX7, or Batmobile as it is commonly known, is probably the best looking of the series and came from the factory with a decent number of horses (around 250) galloping out of the 13B rotary engine. But for some that was merely a small gathering of ponies when nothing short of a herd of wild stallions would do. Like this one at Turner North shore. Read on...

Famous Footballer Cars of the past

With the Football World Cup kicking off in Russia and the crazy pre-season transfer market in full swing we are once again reminded how much today’s football superstars get paid and the outrageous cars many of them insist on driving. Christiano Ronaldo has $11 million dollars worth of exotic motors, Lionel Messi also has an impressive supercar garage, and John Terry collects Ferraris. But what about the superstars of the past? What did they drive?
