    [26x05] Mar. 17, 2019- Last LeBlanc episode :(

    The Aston test was typical TG, so average but good enough. Matt makes it work. I found the Phantom test completely stupid and lacking though. The writing was so so dumb. The automatic braking was kinda interesting, the moving adhoc cardboard dummy was hilarious and quite ingenius in a way. But...

    Ownership Verified: Finally: 2001 Jaguar XKR coupe.

    Awesome car. Whys the drone there at 2k rpm? Is it cause of the muffler delete?

    [25x06] April 1, 2018

    As a car guy I feel this is just unpleasant to watch,destroying cars over such obstacles. Previous TG had somewhat similar tests too sure but at least somewhat practical and in the end not meant to ruin the brand new cars for no reason. All they do is to try to make it as stupid entertaining as...

    This was awful. And I really dont see any faultering chemistry with GT. Its the same or better even. The material perhaps sometimes recycled but Grand tour episodes keep me smiling the entire duration. Top Gear not even close, f*ck thats lame keeps popping up. Le Blanc is fine but Chris is a...

    [2x07] It's a gas, gas, gas

    One of the best eps in the series so far IMO. Good humour/chemistry, goofy car stuff, a proper car review, fun guests and informative segment. The true core of what always made TG what it was and why TGT still can feel fresh.

    [24x03] March 19th, 2017 - DB11 vs. S63 / GTI Clubsport

    The star segment really needs to shorten. By 95%. Damn it dragged on. And that mellon/whatever... destroying with the harvester was a waste of time and dull. Also that 1million passing by thing they did on the Ring was so dumb. Why couldnt they just have fun and marvel at the cars they pass...

    [24x02] March 12th, 2017 - Lamborghini vs Porsche

    while I agree with your other assessments, especially Reid's retarded "Hammondness" , you mustve watched some other version of TG regarding CHris and guilia. He didnt really give a crap about the window. He stopped the car and didnt even look at the window. He immediately said, Im gonna try it...

    Ownership Verified: My first ever factory-new car: VW Tiguan 1.4 TSI

    I figured that much, Im just saying I rarely see the comp-turb one in cars/reviews. Passat and Golf and pretty much most of VW group mostly uses either the 122bhp or the 170bhp both only turbo (or any other variation). I always wondered how come they wouldnt use the comp-turb over others but I...

    Ownership Verified: My first ever factory-new car: VW Tiguan 1.4 TSI

    Sweet little SUV. Any plans to tune the ecu? I remember these 1.4 came in different versions, im guessing the 160-170bhp or so one is not that much different than this one except programming? Or do they still use the 1.4 turbo+compressor ones? I find it really sad how I rarely ever see cars with...

    The Peugeot bit was a disappointment IMO. While I do agree Peugeot in general has been pretty bad that segment was dumb and unfunny for the most part. The 307cc is a pretty nice car to own and that 1007 Jeremy so dislikes, couldve been one of the best cars peugeot made with a few tweaks. Those...

    Nice, finally again the proper TG format. It was kind of funny how their mocking backfired since its what most people want to see. Anyway I thought James' SLS review was way off. He disliked all the things that made the SLS special. Gullwing doors, great NA engine, a slick shape. Now it looks...

    Ownership Verified: Die Barge von Wafting - 2003 Audi A6 4.2 V8

    Amazing car man, LOVE it. Completely dig your way of thinking, unfortunately it takes a while, at least it did for me, to get there because the way usually most people think. Buy something new small and reliable (supposedly) over something used, comfy and big. Always everybody afraid of the...

    +1 My thoughts exactly. I miss the car reviews and things like that. Now its all about their challenges or those car vs. x races or other various buddy exploits and usually theyre all stretched out beyond good taste. Its just NOT a BALANCED show anymore.

    Ownership Verified: jsausley's 2014 Volkswagen CC R-Line 2.0T DSG

    Are there any good LSDs available for this model, did you think about installing one perhaps?

    Ownership Verified: jsausley's 2014 Volkswagen CC R-Line 2.0T DSG

    A very nicely designed and elegant ride, I always liked this car. Good choice. Any plans on chipping it? From what I remember this engine is good for +40-50 bhp without any mods, only chipping it (somewhere reputable of course).
