Meet the Real ReView panel
Motors.co.uk has launched the UK's first Real ReView panel of car buyers who'll review cars and tell it like it is.
Watch Stuart's audition video

Stuart graduated from Coventry University with a degree in production engineering. He works as a bus driver. He currently drives a 1995 Citrn AX, but his dream car would be an E-type Jaguar in racing green.

Last year he sold his Suzuki Swift for a Citrn C1 1.0 Vibe in bright yellow, a car he’s so pleased with he declares it’s the best he’s owned.
Watch Sam's audition video
Sam Rollings is 26 and works as a dentist in Dundee. At 6ft 5in tall, Sam’s height makes him perfect for our Real Review panel because if he fits in a car, then there’s room for practically anyone. Sam drives a 1980s Ford Escort XR3i – one of the first modern ‘hot hatchbacks’ and a car that is now recognised as a modern classic.
Watch Donna's audition video
Donna Fraher, 38, is an occupational therapist. She’s from Derby but is shortly moving to Bradford. Donna loves Volkswagens - her current car is a purple Mk3 Golf GTi that’s still going strong after 12 years and 178,000 miles, but she’d love to own a Beetle cabriolet with leather seats. Donna realised a big ambition at the Real ReView winners day when she drove a Ferrari at Silverstone race track for the first time.

Louise and husband Paul are keen British Touring Car race fans, making the trip from their Yeovil, Somerset home to see BTCC at British race circuits. Louise drives a Saab 9-3 hatchback – but would love to own a TVR Cerbera, a BMW evolution or even an Aston Martin Vanquish.
Watch Michelle's audition video
Michelle Brown is 34, from Ashe, Surrey, and works as an IT consultant. She’s always been fascinated by cars, a passion that began as a small child, helping her father in his haulage business.
