    [23x02] June 5th, 2016

    Went in open-minded. Turned off after 25 minutes. Eddie Jordan doesn't appear to have any function - feels like he said almost nothing and was treated more like a guest. Still can't stand Chris Evans - sorry, I know it's not funny or original, but hey. SIARPC is far too long and far too...

    [23x01] May 29th, 2016

    I think it's different enough that it deserves its own thread. Discussion of Extra Gear is also going to get lost in the main thread amongst the people discussing the main episode itself.

    Rory Reid and Chris Harris present a half-hour extra show, combining extra with behind-the-scenes. Find them all here Already more enjoyable than the main show - we saw construction of the rallycross track (meh), Chris Harris take the Nomad for a TG lap (interesting), the new Mini driven round...

    [23x01] May 29th, 2016 -- First Episode With New Cast

    Curse you - was just about to start a thread! So I watched the first episode of New Top Gear - mostly as I had nothing else to do. Figured that we should probably share opinions, for those of us who have seen it. I did go in with an open mind, as I felt I should give it a chance. Things what I...

    Hello, anyone in the US live near to and willing to visit a Whole Foods Market for me? Partner is going on holiday to the US and I'd like to give her a $25 gift card for Christmas - including the physical card - but WFM don't ship the gift cards to the UK. Anyone willing to pick one up and...

    [Official] Clarkson announces new show! / Amazon Video [Hammond & May too]

    Currently, this is announced as being "exclusive to Amazon prime". There's no guarantee that will last forever. Amazon sell individual episodes of some of their shows. For example, episode one of Vikings is ?1.89 in SD and ?2.49 in HD. No reason why Amazon wouldn't sell individual episodes, or...

    Unveiled: 2015 Renault/Dacia Kwid

    The Dacia Sandero Stepway is a small hatchback on stilts with plastic bumpers, and it seems to be selling very well in the UK. If this is a similar idea, or even a baby Dacia Duster, then it will sell like hot cakes.

    UK General election: SORT IT OUT YOU CLOWNS!

    ...whoops! I was wrong. The SNP are one of the parties pushing for voting reform (along with what used to be called the Lib Dems and the Green party). Whilst it's true First Past The Post helped the SNP this time, in every general election before now it's hindered them and they are (on this...

    UK General election: SORT IT OUT YOU CLOWNS!

    YouGov have also done an exit poll: youGov exit poll - CON 284 MPs, LAB 263, LIBS 31, SNP 48, UKIP 2, PLAID 3, GREEN 2 Looks more realistic, frankly.

    UK General election: SORT IT OUT YOU CLOWNS!

    SNP forecast to get 58 of 59 seats in Scotland. That's not going to happen - even SNP candidates will say as much. I really hope the exit poll is wrong. It's miles away from most recent opinion polls and will surprise many.

    Jeremy Clarkson Suspended Over Fracas

    I think it's a small Citroen from the early 80s. I distinctly remember adverts for the Citroen Fracas, 1.2 litre...

    Forum-wide survey: How oomphy is your ride?

    Tiny e-peen: 2014 Dacia Duster diesel. 1.46 litre turbocharged diesel, 4 cylinders. 79kW, 240 torques, 1205kg. I think I may be at the bottom of the list somewhere!

    Ownership Verified: Good news, everyone: teeb's new Dacia Duster!

    You don't get a choice. The cheapest Dusters (no radio, no electric windows etc) come with a 1.4 litre petrol engine. All others come with a 1.5 litre Nissan diesel engine, last seen in the Qashqai. As mine has some toys; it had to be the diesel.

    Ownership Verified: Good news, everyone: teeb's new Dacia Duster!

    Thanks - it is on the shopping list; to get as small a drive as possible. Will also make it less obvious to thieves.

    Ownership Verified: Good news, everyone: teeb's new Dacia Duster!

    New Dacia Duster in blue. Handy for where I live. Sorry it's not an MX-5! Some commonly-asked questions: Does it handle OK, or is it wallowy? Yes. Dacia? Why? Romanians are known for high-quality workmanship. And it annoys the UKIP peoples. Have you planned any mods? I am going to install a...

    South of France

    The south of France is absolutely stunning. July and August, as mentioned, are hellishly busy; as every Parisian comes down south for the month. September and October are generally still sunny though less busy (and consequently cheaper). If you come in December or January you risk many of the...

    [19x06] March 3rd, 2013 [Africa Special, Part 1]

    At a guess - budget. The majority of XC70s on eBay that have sold recently haven't been in-budget. Alternatively, an 850R makes for a more interesting program - it's more likely to break down than a more recent XC70, and conversely with less electronics it's probably easier to repair.

    Random Thoughts... [Automotive Edition]

    My saab is in the garage, for its service and MOT. As the nearest Saab garage is 100 miles away in Glasgow, I have a courtesy car for the week. It's the best car for carrying a double bass I've ever had:
