Top Gear

Hi,

I was watching a repeat episode of Top Gear on the satellite today, one which I hadn't seen before.  It was the one where they road test 3 small cars. Namely, the Renault Modus, the Honda Jazz and the Peugeot 1006.
Rather than getting Jeremy, hamster & slow to do their usual battering them around a race circuit and slagging them to death, they brought on their mothers to do the tests.
It was quite refreshing and good entertainment.
It was even more interesting because the cars being tested were all prospective tuition cars


I'll never forget Wotzizname !!!

Re: Top Gear

Shame. missed it. would have liked to have seen it - looking at those types of cars at the mo...which car came out on tops? dont really like shape of 1006. modus seems a cute kinda car. not too mad on the jazz...tho think its gotta be more reliable than the other two  :?

The last episode i caught...geez must have been on weeks/months ago, was the one where clarkson and his side kick richard hammond were racing against each other to get to a destination (or there and back) one in a plane, one in bugatti veyron...interestin of bit of tv to watch, entertainin too.

i'm all confused thought top gear and its presenters moved from beeb to channel 5? and was called fifth gear? but it's back with the beeb now?

shall have to keep look out for it in tv guide  smile

Re: Top Gear

Isn't it a Pug 1007 not a 1006?  Cos the James Bond film people have banned them from saying 1 double-o 7, they have to say 1 thousand and 7.  If peugeot hadn't backed down, I don't think the film bods would have won, I can't believe you can copyright commonly used phrases and double-o for two zeros together is one of the commonest of phrases.

Yes, I thought the 3 mums made a very good job of the test drives.  Anyone who missed it, keep watching, Top Gear is getting as bad as Time Team for being repeated.

Re: Top Gear

The hamster is just sooooo luurrrrrrvvvlllllllly.  I had a dream about him the other night - we worked together on top gear and we were secretly dating each other - of course he wasn't married with kids in my dream - just single and madly in love with me!!!! Who could resist my wonderful charms.

Re: Top Gear

In the Uk with have some of the best designers and brains in the world

But you got to give it to the Italians, when it comes to designing cars they just have that flair and imagination to turn out beutifull cars smile

Very expensive though :cry:

Re: Top Gear

I assume you're not talking about Fiat, Alfa & Lanica....

1. Lancia. They did so well in this country they stopped importing, they were only importing rust anyway.

2. Fiat. Beautiful?? Fiat multipla, Boxy Panda.

3. Alfa. Has anyone ever seen one move? My boss at works only done 18k from new and it's on it's second engine.

Give me a big Jag, Aston, or Porsche any day of the week.

Re: Top Gear

lol...you got a point there.

Couple of years back this chap in a Ferrari was trundling through a pedestrianised section people everywhere, then he just gave the throttle a big dab and it was like the parting of the waves....

If money were no object (we can all dream) I think I'd go for a Maclaren F1.
