    Well, Jaguar was my try for a boys' name. Just never give birth in a prius... And I think Giulia shouldn't be the car to be born in. You should be named Giulia for things that happened nine months before that in it... No 205 GTI for me. Had one. Overrated. Would replace it with a Renault 5...

    Well this had the best Cpt Slow ever. No direction to keep and ultimately just going down. The TopTip should be: "If you are on your way to a hospital in labour in a kia: Get yourself a Mercedes or a Jaguar quick. Name your kid appropriate and hope..." Jesus was at least a nice guy. And...

    I admit NOT buying a Beta. Which was one of the worst choices in my whole driving life. The Beta was 1500 Dm (about 750?), seven years old with a bit more than 100.000km. The second hand car dealer adviced me to buy a Lada instead. Exactly the model that Jeremy Clarkson drove in the communist...

    I'd really liked the guys to try and get enough old cellphones and worn out laptops (who hadn't donated one) to have as much batteries as the tesla. Fitted into two black boxes (front and rear) so it has no boot on either side. Then make it a mid-engined car with no weight in the middle but all...

    The General Motorbikers Discussion Thread

    Oh yes, owning my first ever 1000cc bike I have to admit that I drive slower in the corners now - will need a few more kilometers to adjust to the power and the weight. My VF1000F is about 280kg fueled but it feels very driveable. And I love how it develops power from 1800rpm on. I just love...

    Well, they had to make a "cheap" show because of the shorter budget in the series - and this one looks like it. Didn't travel too far, RS vs. Renault tested on the track and got an evo that had to be destroyed... and who knows, maybe the Army even paid for this. Enjoyed the show nonetheless, the...

    You are absolutly right about Top Gear being a lonely light in this dark age of television. It plays in its own league so it can only be rated in its own league. If the range of measurement is from 0 to 10 and and someone reduces it to 9 to 10 there is no measure at all. To explain my...

    Oh no! Feeding the birds with eggs - outrageous! Imagine the headline: "Jeremy Clarkson made birds eat their children!" Lets say it was his caring for public health: imagine how many carcinogenic particles could have been in that meal. So he had to throw it away to show people not to eat eggs...

    Well I used to criticize the show - but only because my expectations were Mount-Everest high. And I gave a five because thats my rating for an average show in the Top Gear ranking. Compared to most other things on TV it would be a 9 with most Top Gear shows scoring a 10+ for sure. By the way...

    Bad news. No, not the Dacia. Staged and scripted.

    Sounds sensible. So: "He could be Stiggy - just for one day..." (Sing along to an old David Bowie song) Would have been a nice moment to introduce a new reasonably priced car, formerly owned by mister slow: The Panda. Which here in Germany was the cheapest car around in the first months of the...

    Baffling continuity error in Vietnam Special

    oh yes, and then standing "lost" in a "deserted field" while in the back you can see trucks on a road...:rolleyes:
