Should I trade the '06 330i in for the '07 335i?

Parts of TG which I liked.

The lamborghini episode, the new S Class , a Citroen being blown by a BA 747. The amphibiuos car( Toybota) smashing the Tundra series. Hammond under the effect of hypnosis, the supercar episode which had Zonda,Ford GT and the F430. Sabeen Shmit in the Ford Transit and the Korean Car shoot out.

Well we are trading in our '05 525d for a '07 535d so I think it has to be done.

My same thoughts, I couldn't believe what he was saying. (Mind you, I've never test driven an M5 and I don't know what it's like... yet) Then ya, Clarkson presses the M button, the music changes and it's totally different. Big grin

I remember seeing one episode with, I think it was the new Corvette or Viper? can't quite remember. Anyhow, they were showing the sils next to the door with flames coming out. Aparently its a minor side effect.

I loved the sketch whereby Clarkson etc took over the traffic news on Southern Radio and promptly brought the traffic in Brighton & Hove City to a gridlock!

Yeah, no damage at all - except the £55,000 bill it cost to fix that no doubt came out of the license payers pockets !!!.

I'm sure they never fix the damage to the bumper, they just taped it up and got a spoiler fited. Seen as it was only a prototype car.

Someone, other than the Council (who are very much against the private motorists), was responsible for the gridlock

I have been hearing that TG may be axed, due to Hammond's crash, is it a rumour or can it be possible ?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/liv..._article_id=407022&in_page_id=1773

There was a link , (I think zapmedia.com) ,from which I downwloaded a lot of episodes ( I am open to share them) . Too bad its not active anymore, and too bad that its not aired in the US.

Just like the Mr. Bean (forgot his real name)'s Mclaren F1. The chassis of the car can get affected eventhough only by a few millimeters, which means it can't be repaired easily. You can probably write off hte suspension and probably some other things as well on that Koenigsegg.
