    Car Reviews by Top Gear presenters: one article, one thread

    I'm mostly referring to Jeremy's reviews. I just read the one on the Fezza 458 which is not in the massive TimesOnline thread, and it was so much simpler to read and comment on. Since his reviews are rare, one per week at most it wouldn't be too bad sofar as thread count go.

    Setting up the 2009 FinalGear car awards

    It's that time of the year again. Let's use the thread to think of categories. My ideas for categories are (obviously) best car, best noise, best car video. Anyone else up for this?

    What is the best AWD system?

    I'm really liking the new Volkswagen Passat CC and I've been really thinking about getting a VR6-powered 4motion (in a couple of years). This got me thinking of which is the best AWD system out of all the manufacturers? Mitsubishi's S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control)? Audi's quattro? Nissan's...

    Fifth Gear's format is getting interesting

    I'm prefering Fifth Gear's regular segment line: 1. Track shoot-out 2. New cars (but are they any good) 3. Comedy/reality segment 4. Sports car/supercar/super-saloon with Tiff Plus, they do include alot more consummer-oriented advice too (when's the last time we saw the Top Gear down-to-earth...

    Audi R8 or Nissan GT-R?

    Regardless of which is the faster or a better car, or which is a "real" super car, which would you get if it were your own money? These are two very interesting cars but I reckon that the GT-R does keep me awake far more. I can't explain it with objective arguments such as japanese reliability...

    I reckon we should have an end of year Finalgear Awards thread!

    .... with an organisation similar to the Top 100 cars thread, but with various categories, winners and nominees! It's one of my favorite segments in Top Gear and it shouldn't be too hard: I've seen some of the funniest writing on these boards.

    Mp3 players, need some help..

    I broke my good old i-river and I've just started shopping but I've been out of the mp3 player loop since 2005. My main concern: good bass and excellent sound quality. It's been hard trying to find a replacement. I tried 2 Sandisks, the Sansa USB-like key with terrible sound quality (the sound...

    Mobile phones and text-messaging

    I have yet to jump on the mobile phone bandwagon. I'm part of 20% of the Canadian population who gets by with just a home phone. Until I move out of my parents', I still think a cellphone is an unnecessary additionnal monthly expense; I'm already paying for the gym, high-speed interneting, and...

    Reapeating laugh track is getting annoying

    I'm talking about the studio segments: I get the impression that that a previously recorded laught track (with a single proeminent female voice) when something funny (or not) is said. Sometimes I notice that the audience behind the presenter isn't laughing at all. Am I the only one noticing this?
