    Ringmeet 2019 - Taking in US refugees!

    The first year I don't show up at all and you guys make fools of yourselves. Guess I know what that means. Also when was the last time that it didn't start raining hard on Friday evening?

    Unveiled: 2018 BMW X2

    I had a chat with a friend of mine who works as a salesman at a big BMW dealer, and he didn't really understand my objection to cars like the Active or Gran Tourer. He didn't see it as a brand selling its integrity for cash, but as cars that fill a niche and people buy. It's his job, not his...

    Unveiled: 2018 BMW X2

    Who cares anymore. It's a random car for young families or retirees who use their vehicle to drive from A to B. This one has a BMW badge.

    Game of Thrones

    If you haven't seen the leaked episode yet (07x06), you can get really excited for Sunday/Monday. Quite possibly the best one yet.

    Unveiled: Kia Stinger 2017

    This should be a big winner for Kia if interior quality is at least semi-decent and the price isn't too outlandish for the brand. Nobody who looks at a Kia cares if the design is derivative.

    [01x09] January 06, 2016

    Solid TopGear episode, 8/10. Pacing felt much better than previous episodes, good mix of films, the tent bits almost had a point.

    TGT is a fail and here's why

    Having watched the special, why isn't the whole show like that? Is it really impossible to take $50mil. and make 6 of those every year? I just don't understand. Not even gonna metion that it's another similarity to TG...

    TGT is a fail and here's why

    Very much what gassc said. While it's admirable wanting to give the show the best chance, mental gymnastics seems a bit over the top. TGT was not born in an environment without references and precedence, and there are just too many similarities with CHM's previous show (which shall not be named...

    TGT is a fail and here's why

    At least I'm not alone in being quite disappointed by the new show, despite keeping the openest of minds. The car "reviews" are just bad in comparison to many youtubers, which is sad to say. The travel segments, their bread and butter, are superficial, even compared to past TG roadtrips. And...

    Unveiled: 2017 VW Phideon

    Since no info was posted, it's a China exclusive (for now), fighting against 5er, A6 and E-Class. Think less expensive Phaeton. The car itself is not very interesting, just an accumulation of things business people apparently want.
