That episode was hiliarious.

- Hammond in the pink Micra convertable with a bag on his head.

- The whole part of them creating the Espace Convertable and the tests, mainly the car wash one  rotfl  I can belive they made the car wash catch fire, then ran off  Wow!

- Stig making the CCX take off onto the grass and taking out a tire wall and damging the front end.

Can wait till next weeks episode and the good thing is I recorded this weeks episode on Sky+, so I can watch it again and again and again. Big grin

Why, he's only 1 of the 3 presenters presenting Top Gear, 4 if you count their new dog, 'Top Gear Dog'.

James Hewitt - that cad who was supposed to have had a fling with Princess Di and bares more than a passing resemblance to Prince Harry - Allegedly.

I've seen some of the other things that are due in the series to come and some will be very funny indeed- especially their next buy a crap car challenge Big grin

Downloading the episode as we, well, type. I have some of the older episodes as well and some of them just absolutely cracks me up, especially the one where Jeremy Clarkson races AC Muir (marathon runner) around London following (more or less) the London Marathong routing. Also, when they go off during the News segment it tends to get pretty funny too - like the whole 'Top Steer' thing, with James pondering the loss of eggs if we got rid of cows, as well as the 'Christmas Ideas that we're not interested in' from the last series (especially that after-market Parking sensor was hilarious).

They're probably still paying off ont he 10 Aygo's they wrecked playing car football - not to mention the Suzuki Swift's they wrecked during the Winter Olympics special Big grin

Nah he didn't wreck it, but the repair will be expensive never-the-less!!

Looked like a bit of a handful that thing anyway, very unstable.

No it isn't. I quote:

Unfortunately BBC Two video content is only available to users within the UK. We're sorry for any disappointment.
For many programmes , there are broadcast rights restrictions, which do not allow us to show BBC Two programmes and content to people outside the UK. In addition, broadband content is expensive for the BBC to stream, so we have to give priority to people within the UK, who ultimately bear the cost of us doing this through their licence fee.

The Renault Espace scene was hilarious.

I just got a satelite dish, so my sincere thanks to the British telly licence fee paying members on here who prop up the BBC whether they like it or not, in order for me to view for free. Thanks guys.  thumbsup
