  1. Eh? Jaguar Land Rover are about to bring out am something actually called the Land Rover Crossover...If we could stop this in any way then we need to get a wiggle on. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  2. Still on fleet... Approaching 188k now. Still going strong, although probably needs a new hub at the front to stop the discs from warping. Required a new offside rear coil spring for MOT, which had to be purchased from eBay as it was £160 from main stealer. New to fleet...future modern shite: Very leggy (91k), turbocharged petrol, very acceptable family wagon with mod-cons and Isofix and the general space and things you need when you have two kids under 19 months (or will have from January).
  3. I found the three electric hatchbacks more interesting than the ice cream van and would have preferred a longer segment of semi-serious review/testing culminating in that challenge than a double whammy of ice cream van. If that Corsa really does have a 200 mile range then that's impressive. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  4. The filthy modern Insignia I've bought for family duties has a somewhat optimistic speedo. Given it's a 1.5T, unless I push it off a cliff it'll never be going off the end of that! Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  5. I think the format and series is now as good as it's ever been. The three chaps are clearly good mates and give a shit about one another, so the banter and commentary doesn't feel forced or awkward. They may be recycling some old formulas in terms of musical cars but to be fair who wouldn't want to give that a go? You could argue that any car they picked to do something physical would be better used on a school run or whatever...fact is the cars they have found were for sale or available at the time and anyone who bought them with cash monies could have done whatever they wanted with them.

  6. The colour of that S60 was stunning. Manufacturers must write any car they send to Top Gear completely off beforehand. I suppose the publicity does make up for it. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  7. The car is very bloo, but it makes me feel anything but. What an ace little thing.
  8. Exceptionally leggy, late-reg madness Mk3 Mondeo in absolute base spec. It's an absolute heap and has a short MOT, but it's nearly made it to the moon so it's probably got some more life in it, right? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2007-07-FORD-MONDEO-EDGE-20L-ESTATE-TOW-BAR-A-C-PX-SWAPS/164297204343
  9. If you told me I would have to drive from the tip of Scotland to southern Italy and I'd have to do it in a sub-£1000 car, I'd be buying the GS300 every single time over absolutely anything else other than possibly a V70 with the NASP 2.4.
  10. Mk1 Lexus GS300, unmodified, MOT until March next year, under a grand. Someone please bring this into the fold... https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202009013169651
  11. The 2.0 16v in my 9000 was eerily silent, on the same level as the LS. I'm glad you're now experiencing that level of serenity!
  12. One of those is a primed grenede and the other is an ancient X5.
  13. I've driven four automatic Omegas. Three of them behaved perfectly normally, changing in a civilised manner etc. The one that@Supernaut collected though was weirdly different, like it was stuck in permanent 'Sport' mode. Kicked down if you breathed a little on the throttle. I swear the ECU or whatever the brains were of the gearbox had been reset before being hooned everywhere, basically programming the 'box to behave a certain way all the time.

  14. Good grief do they intend to replace the door? Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
