    It's been 15 years...

    It was a very sad day for motorsport. First Barrichello's accident, then Ratzenberger's death, and to top it all off, Senna's fatal crash. I remember seeing Senna's head move about in the cockpit, lifeless, and knowing in that very instant that there was nothing the emergency crews that were...

    Seat Exeo

    While I don't share Vltros' general dislike about SEATs (I believe they're pretty competitive in their niche, which is way below Audi and VW), I'm also not a great fan of the Exeo. My fear is that this may be the beginning of a new age for the smallest brands in the VW groups, where in-house...

    My Focus SVT (ST170)

    That's a nice car you have. Looks well taken care of too. Only thing I don't like is the color. The first gen Focus really looked the best in Racing Blue, but that's just personal preference. Aesthetics aside, that is really a brilliant car, congrats!

    My new Fiesta 1.6 Sport

    Gracias! :) Better late than never :P In the end I have grown fond of black, and don't regret at all having chosen it. I think it's a color that really suits the character of the car. Of course, right now the paint is not as pristine as it was in those photos. But it's a fact of life: People...

    2006 Ford Fiesta S 1.6 TDci

    As you and Vltros point out, the 1.6 petrol in the Focus is not exactly brilliant, probably due to the extra weight and a gearbox more suited to highway cruising than to mountain-road bashes. This doesn't mean it can't move the car (top speed is somewhere around the 180 kph mark) but it doesn't...

    2006 Ford Fiesta S 1.6 TDci

    Welcome to the Fiesta S club :) It's exactly the same as mine, except I have the 100HP petrol version (I prefer the rev-happy nature of the petrol engine). A blast to drive, and probably the best of both worlds, since I hear the TDCi engine is quite frugal. Certainly the petrol one isn't :lol:

    I'm sorry but the ones I have are the ones you were pointed at in the "Subtitle Project" thread...

    I'm sorry but the ones I have are the ones you were pointed at in the "Subtitle Project" thread. I'm also looking for a decent set of subtitles for those episodes. If I can't find them, I may go ahead and do them myself, but that is going to take time, something that I don't have much of right...

    Med Gear

    Apparently that will be the Classic Rally Isla de Mallorca, to be held between March 18th and March 21st. Strangely, there is no mention of the Top Gear trio in the Entry List, but in the "Competition" category there are four "00" entrants by the names Kedward, Midwinter, Rockinham and...

    Citroen to ressurect the DS

    That would have to be the DS5, because Citro?n has confirmed only the DS3 for 2010, the DS4 for 2011 and the DS5 for 2012. Sorry to burst your bubble there ;)

    Citroen to ressurect the DS

    Apparently, what Citro?n means by "DS" is "Different Spirit", which in turn all it amounts to is just special versions of Citro?n's lineup. So, in fact, this new DS3 should be just a fancier C3, the DS4 a fancier C4 and the DS5 a fancier C5. So all we have here is just Citro?n using the glamour...

    My '08 Ford Focus 1.6 Ti - VCT (115ps)

    Mine lasted (mostly) undamaged for a year almost to the day. Then some blind lorry driver smashed into it while parking and crushed it against another lorry. The end result was a front bumper cracked and the rear smashed. The end result was a 2600+ euro bill (which the insurance paid, of course)...

    Citroen to ressurect the DS

    Ok, here is the answer: Citro?n DS INSIDE, the first of this new batch of DSs. Better looking than the current C3? Sure. Worthy of the DS name? No way, even if Citro?n claim that it's some sort of acronym and in no way related to the original DS. Yeah, right.

    Diecast Models

    In the past couple of months or so I have started a modest collection (about 10 cars) which includes everything from supercars to rally cars, so I thought I'd post it here. It's nowhere near as impressive as any of the others I've seen in this thread, but there are a couple of interesting...

    The Top Gear Subtitle Project

    I've just tried 12x03. Seems to be slightly off sync, but nothing that a bit of tinkering with Subtitle Workshop or Visual SubSync won't fix. Now I can start Spanish translations really going. Provided I overcome my natural laziness, that is :P BTW: Less than 3 hours to the end of 2008 here...
