    Dreaded cyclists

    I think that's mostly a very badly designed intersection. Giving cars making that crossing right of way once the car with the dashcam is stopped there (hence the road markings keep clear) but then giving cyclists right of way without accounting for that is just asking for conflicts of that sort...

    I liked the second part of the first half, the last 15 minutes of the second part (after they stopped being stupid) and the driving part of the second part. I think they are trapping into the we want to show too much fall. With a similar length as the Bolivia special, this could've been very...

    Was I the only one who saw an homage to Gravity in the Porsche segment? They have been quite liberal with their movie references this series in general. Anyway, who would've thought that Richard was, in my opinion, the star in this series. He delivered some very good pieces, I liked his review...

    It's a pity that once the 4C went in race mode versus the Quadski Hammond didn't focus on the car anymore other than the it's wide remarks. Once we knew the speed of the Quadski on water, the race was no contest anymore. They still made it appear to be quite close, but I wouldn't be surprised if...

    That was the best part, the nostalgia trip. It was the only part that felt genuine. Other than that, they weren't even trying. None of the freshness of other cheap car challenges. They just reveal the mishaps per golden envelope SMS before the challenge even started and then went through the...

    2014 BMW 4 Series Coupe officially debuts, priced from $41,425

    This is just the successor to the 3-Coupe/Cabrio segment. And that did exist.

    Concept: BMW Grand Lusso Coup? Pininfarina concept (7 series Coup?)

    All-new V12 cars are always good news. Hopefully it will be a serious attempt and not just a one-off concept.

    Rolls Royce Wraith unveiled at Geneva

    Looks a tiny bit like an Aston from the side and side-rear. Only bigger, much bigger. And more horse cow. I like the way it looks, but I'm a bit worried that BMW is going to do to Rolls what they are doing to their own range of cars. We're not going to get a Phantom GT or a Wraith Countryman as...

    He is right though that water will always look for the easiest way to get out of a place. I'm not sure Gibraltar can be seen as the real end of the river Nile, but assuming we can (he does have a bit of a point about it), the furthest drop of water that is eventually going to flow in the...

    News: Volvo updates the V70, XC70 and S80

    Glad they stayed classy and not blingy. Volvo's are about the only option in Europe for people that don't want German premium cars with Saab gone bust, Alfa not making a big car anymore and the French also on hiatus. (Yes I know there is Lexus but I'm not a freemason :jeremy: )

    Fair enough. So when Kia rings and say: "we have some Cee'd's and Sportages, would you mind trashing them on telly," they say no, but its no problem for them to ring Kia and ask for some cars for free?

    Maybe that's the F1 driver effect? Normally you can spot a Star/F1 driver being quick or slow, but Hamilton was really on another level in the corners. I also noticed the Suzuki getting squirrely under braking before the Hammerhead, something I had never noticed before with a star car to that...

    I liked the Mastreta test the most of this show, surprisingly. Also laughed out loud for the first time in a while during a Hammond review (the "It's all rubbish" line with the Jeremy-face, yeah I know I'm childish). To me, this is what Top Gear is about: showing us new and interesting cars in a...
