    Oh good, I wasn't the only one who spotted it.

    Yeah, I edited the Transmission URL into my post and it got pulled (I'm a newbie). No worries.

    Sheesh, ninety minutes? I thought the Middle East special was long.

    For a moment I hoped there were going to be two specials but, alas, no such luck.

    Heads-up - Transmission just confirmed that the special is set to air on 28 December at 8:00 (GMT, of course).

    HOWEVER - the article was quickly pulled and is no longer on the front page...

    EDIT: Here's the URL, which currently leads to "page not found" - http://transmission.blogs.topgear.co...pm-december-28

    Hats off to you guys for managing this, how on earth did you know when exactly they'd be in Mumbai and how did you know exactly where?

    Can't help thinking it would fetch more after the show has aired

The best Ambassador would be the 1800cc Izuzu petrol engined version, Which has 75bhp!

    The other british car that was popular here was the Triumph/Standard Herald, But they are quite rare now.
    Thankyou for that it has gone straight into my pointless but interesting brain server of knowledge

    That's a fantastic looking Mini. Great report, Mr. Carburetor.

    Edit - just found this:
    Several years ago, I saw someone trying to parallel park their car while blaring very similar music as to what's in that video. After what seemed like 15 minutes of trying and not getting the car into the spot, the guy drove away with the music still at ear-bleeding volume. It was very funny to watch.
