AFAIK, no. 

Is there a problem? I thought we were posting about a programme some of us like. 
I don't post on threads about EVs, politics or Vauxhall Corsas, Rover 75s or knackered Citroens because they don't interest me, fam. 

Etc.

Nope, no problem Jon.

 

Just a mild pop at slammed pineapples, that's all. I've MOT'd worse comments, etc.

 

Chill, man :-)

3. Freiburger did bring flip flops but after an hour outside he decided enough was enough - "I realised I wasn't in California any more."


Yay!

It always amuses me that e46s vie with the PT Cruiser as the car that's too shit for Autoshite,

The car park was indeed a show and never seemed to end.

Also I didn't realise that Mercedes-diesel-powered car was built for the show!

How did I fail to get a photo of it? :-(

How did they think only 100 people would turn up to this?  It all seemed very odd that they'd made such a low-key deal out of it given the show's popularity over here.  Does rather explain why so few were chosen to show.   I'm hoping this makes it into one of the new episodes in some form other than a footnote.  Perhaps the enthusiasm will encourage them to come and do a proper episode in the UK.

Sadly, I haven't seen any photos that included video gear.

There was one guy carrying a video camera on a frame. 

 

AND there was him!

The invite poster said there would be footage shot for Roadkill Extra. 

There were two folk there officially with video DSLRs; the awards ceremony was filmed (and their bloke got in the way as I tried to take a couple of shots); Elena Scherr interviewed the bloke with the diesel Charger and Jonny Smith with his 383 (which might have been for Motor Trend Forbidden Drives - he buggered off before I could ask the question).

I think 'Forbidden Drives' is just him and Tiff driving around in boringly powerful stuff of a new nature. Could be wrong.
