    One good thing that came from it was;

    The episode in The Sun tv guide magazine had a different episode billed.
    Simon Cowell was supposed to be the guest and Hammond was to meet a rally team made up of amputee military people. Still mentioned the Lotus though. Weird.

    i dont enjoy it as much as i use to, its so staged. the one episode they did a while back where they laucnhed their cars from dover harbour in a an attempt to get to france really showed this. that location is just ten mins from me and when it was showing them on the motorway they were just driving back and forth along the same 3 mile stretch continuously

    Well boring, even the star in a reasonably priced car was a boring old fart that used to be something 25 years ago.

    QUESTION:

    Why has top gear not done an on screen review of the RS3? so many audi's get blanked by top gear, S5, TT-RS, RS5(included in the m3 compeition peice) etc....

    Because let's face it, Audi's are not the most exciting to look at or noisy cars on the market.

    Top Gear is just a platform for Clarkson et al to d1ck around with exotica and break stuff.

    I would like to see more affordable cars mixed in with the fast luxury and supercars.

    Would be nice if they just spent 20 minutes on family cars, or hatchbacks that you and I could afford.

    I disagree with most of you, I quite liked it, I though it was above average for topgear. Loved watching them playing with the lotus and the tanks!

    didnt find much wrong with it to be honest...the humour was still there, yes it had less cars but it was still entertainment.
