    Graphics during LFA test in 14x07 - WTF

    Personally, I couldn?t get enough of the manga graphics. They turned an otherwise mundane review into something very different. If they hadn?t been included none of this brouhaha would have ever arose and everyone would have forgotten the whole review ? at least they made it a bit memorable. On...

    What has to happen for TG to improve?

    What has to happen for TG to improve? 1) I've grown to despise the phrase "cocking about", and it would be a massive improvement if scenes such as Richard's painting falling in the lake and James' structure falling over were cut out. 2) Use more stereotypes about cars and their drivers - I'm...

    [14x07] January 3rd, 2010

    Am I the only person to think this looks like a really good episode? It looks like there's some meat to go with the usual fluff.

    [11x03] July 6th, 2008

    Yeah, it's a pity the vast majority of the reviews appear on the track. Just seeing a car woosh up and down and skid sideways can get a bit tiresome, regardless of how great the camerawork and editing is. I used to really enjoy the seemingly normal reviews done on the road or a special...

    [11x01] June 22nd, 2008

    I really enjoyed the first bits. The upcoming preview was cool, and the MPG tests were fun in their own way. The Scuderia was a good solid car review - just what I wanted. That was satisfying. The Stars in Reasonably Priced Car were really really annoying. I just wanted that to end - they were...

    'Top Drives' book out

    Yeah I've got this book. It's really good - it's just rewritten articles from Top Gear Magazine, and some Top Gear show stuff like the Polar Special. It stretches back to some reviews from 2004.

    Wow I saw that van at Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2006 It's pretty cool. Though it would be even cooler without the pasty bit, and just as a normal camper with that paint job.

    Maserati A8GSC Berlinetta Touring

    I'd rather have this, but I can see the appeal of the car above. I mean it would look imposing on the road.

    Audi Q5 to be made in....China???

    Oh my God every day there is a new one of these featureless, lumpy, mid-sized soft-roaders. If there was one "type" of car I could ban it would be these small-size 4x4s. Yes, it will be well built and affordable but surely the market (and our roads) are already saturated with these symbols of...

    BMW C.R.A.P - Canine Repellent Alloy Protection

    I saw in a copy of The Times to day a full page advertisement for BMW's new anti dog-wee technology, the dubiously named Canine Repellent Alloy Protection (Or crap for short). It is this years April Fools joke from BMW. I couldn't find a copy of the advert, but here's a story about it...

    Future Classic american cars?

    Nothing retro will be a future classic. You would not (nowadays) buy something from the sixties that was designed back then to look like a car from the thirties - you would buy a real proper old one. In forty years people will buy the original Mustang or Beetle, not a nineties one that was...

    Production BMW X6 photos (56k not happy)

    Not the best-looking car in the world, but it could be much worst. It looks a lot better than the X5, and as neither are going to be taken off road, it might as well be more "sporty". But then it will never be used to drive fast either, just to shuffle kids to and from school ... pity. When the...

    Porsche Cayenne Hybrid

    It's like ordering some fries and a greasy cheeseburger and then a Diet Coke. In 5 years every other car in central London will be a Cayenne Hybrid. Actually, will it be exempt from the congestion charge?
