    The paint may be yellow, but every car in the Black Series has a soul as black as night :mrgreen:

    Skoda vs Jet-Powered Man: It wasn't that great of a race...but I sure enjoy watching the Skoda getting flung about. News: Funny as always. C63 Black vs MC Stradale: A pretty good comparo. I want a .gif of Clarkson's face when he hits the Maserati's "Race" button. Hilarious. SIARPC: Don't...

    Another car recommendation thread!

    A friend of mine with an E39 M5 would disagree with you. Parts are horrendously expensive. Porsche parts are pretty expensive too, and will cost you a great deal in either time or money. Ever tried to change the sparkplugs on a 997?

    Another car recommendation thread!

    - Based on your target price, I assume you also don't want to spend much on maintenance. That will throw things like BMW's and Porsches out the door. - Rather than rule out the Focus based on hearsay, just go test drive it and decide for yourself if you like the steering. It's a terrific...

    The Fisker sure is beautiful to look at. I'd rip the electrics out and drop in a proper V8 drivetrain. The FF vs Conti V8 segment has some of TG's finest cinematography in years. I really like both cars. I'm looking forward to driving some of the upcoming Audi's that'll be sporting that 4...

    Fantastic. 9/10.

    Great episode. (and I think the 458 is quite good looking.)

    Awesome Thread... [Automotive Edition]

    One of my favorite Youtube vids. I get a crisis every time I watch it.

    Looking for a car in the $10k range, need help...

    Doesn't have to be USP...the sport package uses the same suspension, albeit with 17" wheels.

    Looking for a car in the $10k range, need help...

    Soft ride compared to what? A Viper? Audis are consistently among the stiffer sprung cars out there, particularly with the sport package, such as mine. In any case I wouldn't recommend an A4 unless you are able to do the majority of the work on the car yourself. Go with the G35.

    Car and Driver magazine launches campaign to save manual transmissions!

    I sent off an email early enough that my "Save the Manuals" badge is in the mail! I'll never give up my clutch pedal!

    Worth Considering?

    $6500 could buy you an early E36 M3.

    Short of the specials, this is definitely the best episode TG has ever done, and it doesn't even have my favorite segment in it (cheap car challenge). The Touareg race was fantastic. Beautiful cinematography, and fantastic driving. There's something about a diesel roaring across an ice...

    I laughed hysterically, and drooled over the sights and sounds of the gorgeous R8. So it gets a 10.

    At which season did you start following Top Gear?

    I starting watching Top Gear around 2000, watching Tiff Needell powersliding the V8 M5 and 996 Turbo. Been hooked ever since.

    It was pretty darn funny, and that R8 V10 is a thing of beauty. I'm still lost on Clarkson's logic about the 'Vette though. I'd give up a little personality in favor of build quality, refinement, comfort, etc..

    10/10 for an epic driving road.

    Loved the episode. But then again I always do. The airship segment was alright, but May's crash more than made up for it. And I just enjoy looking at that Balboni. It's really hard to argue against their case for Lancia. I think just about all those Lancias were beautiful, rolling works of...

    Cocking about is more fun than car reviews anyway. I don't watch Top Gear to learn about the latest cars. I watch it to get a laugh, to marvel at the spectacular cinematography, to watch some supercars carve it up on fantastic roads. One of my favorite episodes of all time was the Vietnam...
