    Jeez, tough crowd. Who cares if it's a ripoff, not everyone has seen the stunt/scene/test before (e.g. what's Mythbusters?) and even if it's been done already, we still get to see proper car reviews (e.g. new Smart). Could not be said for Top Gear all the time (i.e. I'd like to see more...

    Great find istanl! I never knew that some GTRs were converted back to street use. The McLaren just looks fantastic in LM orange...gives me a tingle everytime I see it. I'd probably faint if I saw one in real life...this is one car that I'd honestly give a left nut for. :love: Like the...

    I didn't mind Tom's attitude; he's always been wacky and informal in the way he presents. I'm sure it wasn't his very first time on a track, so he just wanted to be funny by purposely stepping the tail out at the expense of speed. If I had a Gallardo, I would certainly be doing that! Forget...

    The VUK Appreciation Thread

    This site kicks ass...thanks for Viper007Bond and VUK for your dedication and efforts! I agree with an earlier post that it's a LIFE-CHANGING experience. Haha...before this site, I was constantly *praying* for crappy rips of new segments by Jabba over at RacingFlix. "Xie xie ni" (thank you...

    This episode was pretty good. I liked the Merc segment and I almost wish my dad kept his old E-Class! But I think that even though the one in the show still ran after each test, there were some problems with it that they didn't talk about. At least the rear wheels seem to have severe negative...

    Me neither...I really like the front design as it's very distinctive, but the proportions of the car is kinda messed up. The front overhang looks huge because the headlights don't wrap around, and the back is short and stumpy. And it's not like there's nice curves and bulges on the front and...

    I enjoyed the episode too, and like you, I thought that the G4 Challenge was out of place (and even more so as the feature section of this episode), but still interesting. It's like watching a car-based version of The Apprentice but with the contestants having a bit more class and have more...

    Did anybody actually won those cars offered on 5th gear?

    Perhaps this has already been discussed before, but I highly suspect the Five TV people frequent this board. Before we were all complaining about how VBH isn't quite consistent enough with her shootouts, and 2 weeks later, no one has been doing the shootouts except Tiff. And just a few weeks...

    I quite enjoyed this week's episode even though 50% of the material were re-runs (the awards). Of the new material, the Gallardo SE review was very good even though I am sceptical that Lamborghini would NOT respond to customers' request to have the ESP turned off completely. These cars are...

    Wow, I simply cannot wait to watch this episode! I read JC's article (linked above..thanks!) and he is absolutely stunned by the Bugatti's performance. I am not a fan of this car, for it looks interesting but not beautiful. And I (used to) think that the 1001 bhp claim is just for bragging...

    It looks like I'm not the only one who thought that this episode was utterly disappointing. I want to clarify that I'm not a Top Gear fanboy...I think Tiff, Jason and even Vicki USED to be good presenters but it just seems like they are bored with their jobs. The M-button thing in the M6...

    That was what I was thinking. I tried to see if there were any pre-cut holes/vents in the persplex glass itself but couldn't see any. There was no way that Esprit would have gotten to 200mph on that strip of runway. It was too short for the 480hp. Even if they had it 200mph with NOS on, it...

    I like both FG and TG about equally mainly because there's good and bad with both shows. I respect Tiff, Vicki and Jason b/c they have tons of racing experience under their belt. I think that Tiff wants to like the Koenigsegg just as much as the next guy until he got into that particular used...

    [08x02] October 17th, 2005

    I agree. I've watched a Mercedes demonstration video where they pitted a McLaren-Mercedes F1 car vs. E55 AMG vs. A160 around Silverstone (?). The E55 and A160 were both given huge headstarts, and the F1 beat them on the final straight (so they had the time handicaps all figured out). I was...

    Haha, those are some good points. I noticed the Boxster running wide on the first corner too. I'm surprised how they just cut it out...I want to see more of the new Boxster! Seriously, I doubt the Boxster understeers, so that must have been simply poor car control. As for the Evo, if he lost...

    I'm surprised that Tiff didn't like the car that much given how well it powerslides. You know what though, he didn't literally diss the GT; he only expressed his subjectivity by saying how the car's handling/drive doesn't match the history and looks of the car. I think it's a somewhat dumb...

    Umm...I use ABC, but my guess would to right click on that lil torrent file, go to "Open With...", then choose Azereus. Azereus should recognize the torrent tracker. If not, get rid of it and use ABC :D I can't believe they chose the same car for COTY...methinks it's only because of their...

    When did they test the Hyundai Accent?

    I pronounce it as HYUN-DAI as well...it's easier to pronounce and easier on the ears too :D . When I try to say it JC's way, my mouth contorts in a way that others would think that I'm trying to make fun of the name, haha.

    When did they test the Hyundai Accent?

    In the latest Dec 12th show, they mentioned how crappy the Hyundai Accent was, but I can't find when that review was done. I looked through the episode guide and even searched on Google to no avail. Does anyone know? It would be humourous to hear what they have to say about it :D Thanks!
