I'll be watching and enjoying, but I hope that there is something new - getting a bit fed up of "Reasonably Priced" and challenges which usually result in wrecking what appear to be usable cars....

(Hang on a minute. I'm saying I want change! I'll be calling Marathons Snickers next...... :gmc: )

I have never been able to watch Top Gear on the TV in France and here in Cairo. All I do from time to time is watch some cuts on Youtube...

Stabilisers worked quite well, shame he didn't make it waterproof though. :D

I still love this marque and I will still be around, preferred selling to breaking, as a great runner and performer"

cant you just watch them on the BBC iplayer?

no good bolting staibalisers to a plastic wing :mrgreen: couldnt see much point in the staged news report though. however, i agree with change. i wasnt particulaly bothered if i missed an episode in the last series, it was just same old, but i must say i quite enjoyed tonites episode. hopefully it wont revert into the programme it was as i dont think i could stand another

"Ooh, i know, lets drive three of the most expensie cars money can buy to somewhere or no real relevance for no apparent reason and make it the main feature in tonights programme

saying that, i couldnt see much point in driving the hilux to the bottom of a volcano to collect a bit of rock, but i suppose it was a little different :roll:

Thought the same

Also thought it was a bit unbelievable when they got it out from under the tarpaulin where it had been "left to rot"

A custom, 4 year old Toyota Hi-Lux? If they don't want it, I'll have it!!!

I do like Top Gear, although they never do a proper car review. But as it's just a car show, I don't expect real life stuff.

No, it's restricted. :(
