TOP GEAR v3!!

the most LOL motoring program.. Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond & James May, the best motoring trio ever!!

some say it has already entered version 3 thread in lyn,
n that the new version's gonna be the best version yet..
..all we know is, its the lyn's Top Gear thread!! thumbup.gif

oh yeah, u guys can post stuff bout Fifth Gear too here, n all the other versions of TG (australia, russia, US, korean etc...)

4 those who wants to post their links on the first page (t-shirts, series, posters and merchandise) kindly pm me or leave it here and as i come by i will put it on the first page..

happy posting guys..

Reserved for postings

Top Gear Official Website --> http://www.topgear.com/uk/

Becoz of the brilliant title sequence that TG made in ep 5 series 17 'The Interceptors', i have 2 post it here:



Sadly though, becoz of the recent fiasco wit Clarkson n that producer, he is sacked from the BBC. And in a true meaning of camaraderie, Hammond n May decided to leave the show as well, wit May admitting that without Clarkson, TG would be no fun no more... cry.gif

But worry no more, its already official that the trio is working on a new motoring show, n production is beginning very very soon. Cant wait!!!!!! rclxm9.gif rclxm9.gif rclxm9.gif


Im gonna miss that Jessica theme song, so here it is.....



Chris Evans really do have some big shoes to fill.........

produa should ask Toyota to give them license to rebadge the IQ, it is just such a cleverly designed car compare with the myvi. at current condition there is just no chance toyota will bring the IQ in malaysia, it will be price like the smart car.

its ok dude.. like i said in my 1st post, u can talk bout fifth gear here too..

simply put, its a totally different show al2gether.. its a motoring show juz like TG, but its made by different people.. TG is made by BBC, whilst FG is made by channel five..

presenters from FG like tiff n vicky used 2 be presenters on the old TG (thats y u can find footage in youtube wit tiff n jeremy workin 2gether)..

even if that were 2 happen, how cheap can perodua really sell the car so it'll be feasible 4 toyota 2 start assembling it here?? the iq is a brilliant technical achievement, n i reckon becoz of its cleverness, it is still quite pricey 2 build.. one of the reasons y in the UK, it is still priced quite expensive 4 wats bacsically a small city car.. the aygo is considerably cheaper, a bit bigger, but as a result more practical.. i mean, if toyota were 2 make it here n badge it as a perodua, i dont think it'll be cheap enough.. i think its still gonna be around the price of a myvi.. n which would u rather?? a 3+1 seater car which u have 2 choose if u want either room 4 passengers in the back or boot space but its a really tiny car or a viva which exterior speakin is slightly bigger than the iq, but more practical, cheaper n can properly seat 4 or 5 adults??

the way i see it is you still get a four seater, while the seat at the back is not big but the way they pack the aircon in the center console and ultra slim front seat mean it can seat three adult and on kid in comfort. and this car have NCAP 5 star rating due to it body design and 9 airbag surrounding the 4 seat. but them again aygo is be more marketable car because it is cheaper and bigger, and everyone love more bigger car even though everyday they drive to work along doh.gif

like u said, it can seat 3 adults n one children, therefore its a 3+1.. n u mentioned that toyota should let perodua make it here n sell it as a perodua.. leave aside all those euroncap stuff n the 9 airbags things, coz if it were 2 be sold here wit a perodua badge, i can bet u that it'll only have a max no of 2 airbags only.. so honetly speakin, in our country, can u really see people goin 4 this instead of a myvi or a viva??

if no good dont come flame me tongue.gif

actually after i watch this show i think cars like 911 gt3 rs and f430 scud worth the price even its so much more expensive and getting lesser..stripping like 60kg its not as easy as we think..i always thought ok remove that remove this and wallaa 60kg lighter is jus so easy..y ferrari charge so much more..but its just not that easy

its even harder on a road car..they cant just cut some piece off..remove this remove that end up the driver dead driving it for awhile..i think a 430 scud lighter by 100kg and other cars which get lighten is such a great engineering

ok sorry..off topic badly..lol

the thing is though, lightweight supercars like the gt3 n the scud n the superleggera r cars that r meant 4 the road that would also excel on the track, not the other way around.. they r not track cars that can be use on normal roads..

becoz of this, shredding weight off of em meant also making it still useable n still civilize on normal roads.. 2 shred weight is easy, juz get rid off carpets n sound proofing only can already lessen kilos off the car on a scale..

but 2 shred weight off these cars they have 2 do it in such a way that we dont realize where the weight is loss.. from my pov, this is especially successful wit the superleggera.. u still have all the equipments, aircon, carpets, comfy seats, but 100kilos is already missing..

n 2 me, thats one of the reasons that made these cars so pricey..

regarding the iQ u guys said, toyota giving this baby perodua to manufacture and sell in this region, and leave out the EuroNCAP gadgets.

ok, THAT THING? WITHOUT ITS SAFETY FEATURES? AND ONLY 2 FLASHY AIRBAGS IN THE FRONT DASHBOARDS?

hey boys, tat thing's so small! u can barely fit a dog at the back! wad if that thing roles in the highway? its juz gonna be like a kancil!

i'd say, leave it as it is, and try to bring the price down slightly, so that it's gonna be a Smart ForTwo rival, but cheaper. even better if its price rivals those of Jazz, or wadever... something small...

Great show from channel 5 again. The evora review was awesome and why did they bother put the backseats anyway? The DBS was good comparison between the soft top and the hard top. I would take the soft top anyway, look cooler and could impress more people biggrin.gif

And the pothole segment was great too, just that it is not applicable to us. If we could claim, our council would go bankrupt in a few days.

The GTI segment was abit too short and Johnny didnt talk much about the performance of the car so i assume it is very similar to the old one.

Top Gear was so so for me. Liked the SL black and also the Ken Block (which i watched most of his vids anyway)but the others were rubbish including the guest.

The contents of TG ep 3 is actually just okay to me but the reason the ep rocked because of the ken block stunning segment and michael mcintyre. Really made my evening a joyful one!

The small cheap car challenge is abit useless but they have a point, they are not the best on consumer advice but they will continue what they do best, challenges, supercars and entertaintment!

the small car challenge was a worthwhile 4 me, coz it juz sums up that the best small car is the fiat 500.. makes me kinda curious though, how good is the little fiat?? ive had a go in a panda (which is wat the 500 is based on), n ive gotta say theres nuttin 2 shout bout.. seeing rave reviews on almost every motoring journalist bout the 500 makes me really wanna have a try at it.. wat did fiat do so right that makes the 500 so brilliant..??

Simple, they kept the winning formula.

Remember the original Mini? It was great, wasn't it?

Then later, BMW had a go at it. And many people were disappointed, to say at least.

The original 500 and the new 500 may be technologically eons apart, but the new one, in essence, is still very the same as the old 500, hence the rave

Just my 2 cents.

i kinda disagree on that.. when the new mini made by bmw 1st came out couple of yrs ago, it was a monumental success.. n one of the reasons was that bmw sticked 2 the original recipe, meaning they kept the original flavour n also merge it wit modern tech.. in case u havent notice, the mini was also a rave, until very recently the 500 took over the spotlight..

i guess, i kinda answered my own question there.. people r startin 2 get bored wit the mini, they want sumthin like the new mini, but newer n fresher.. hence the fiat 500..

produa should ask Toyota to give them license to rebadge the IQ, it is just such a cleverly designed car compare with the myvi. at current condition there is just no chance toyota will bring the IQ in malaysia, it will be price like the smart car.

But the price? How will they manage it?

This month's Top Gear, about the test between the 3 muscle cars, the Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang, which one would you pick?

I personally like the 'stang's looks, love the Challenger's Hemi engine, but somehow, my heart is with the Camaro....cry.gif

i couldnt decide myself 2 be honest, but becoz of all the transformers hype at the moment, id go 4 the camaro.. but if u'd ask me again in a couple of weeks time, i might give u a different asnwer.. tongue.gif

dude, dont u ever use google?? doh.gif

they did, it was a comparison test between evo x n its arch rival, the imprezza wrx sti.. it was the same ep which richard reviewed the rs6 avant n jeremy did one of my fav TG reviews of all time, the clk black.. i remember this ep very well coz its one of my fav ep solely becoz its one of the very few eps where theres less clowning around n more 2wards serious car reviewing..

its series 11 ep 2.. n make sure 2 check out the clk black review, dare i say it, best review ever done by TG thumbup.gif

hey guys i have some question about this torrent thing, i'm downloading top gear with vuze or previously called azureus, the problem is that the downloading speed is so slow, but when u increase the upload limit from 1kb/s to 5kb/s it started getting faster, it wasn't like this last time..
the reason i put the upload limit to 1kb/s is because in australia i only get 25GB a month so i don't want to waste it by upload.

Tough luck. It has always been higher upload, higher downloads. Your upload caps your download speed. You give more you get more

I dont know... the focus rs is about the same price as the evo x. The evo x is way better in my books. Or even imprezza for that matter. Its gonna be bongkus driving a 300bhp ff. its like riding a horse without saddle, while juggling penquins, while making love to a beautiful lady in fornt of the queen

brilliant ep!! love the challenges, especially evo vs british army!! damn, that drug dealer ie condom man ie man who disconnected his airbags is surely cross watchin his car end up like that.. watever it is though, eventhough that evo is the previous gens, it still is awesome thumbup.gif

focus rs vs megane r26r.. well, its no surprise really.. coz i have not yet watched or read a review of the focus rs without concludin that it is a brilliant car.. clarkson's right, u simply cant get a car wit the most amount of power, wit the most amount of fun, n wit the least amount money than the focus rs.. its a no brainer also that the megane is faster on the track..

panamera vs royal mail.. thing bout porsche's is, whilst i may not always agree bout the looks of em, i can be almost certain that theyre gonna be brilliant 2 drive.. im not the sort of person who thinks porsche should only make the 911s (like hammond), i dont have prob wit em making suv's n 4 door saloons.. i guess the panamera ticks all the right boxes, its fast, it handles brilliantly, its comfortable, its built quality's superb, i think porsche did it again.. even that entry level model is that good already, juz imagine wat the turbo version's gonna feel like..

I just love the bucket seats at the back of the 4 door Porsche. The only other cars I see with bucket seats or single seaters at the rear is the Hummer, 4 door Lambo concept and one other...I can't remember.

and also the dashboard with the moving GPS...that is an awesome addition to any car.

in the aston rapide, they also fitted bucket seats at the rear, but not sure bout the production version..

yup, that gps in the dash is really cool.. but it would be more cool if they could do like that but using head up displays..


Added on July 14, 2009, 4:07 pmone more thing, the torque steer on that focus RS is really violent.. eventhough it has a tremendous amount of grip, but still working wit that horrific torque steer sure is a handful sweat.gif

yeah, I cannot imagine driving a car with such violent torque-steer. Won't it be difficult (and annoying) to control that everytime you decide to step on the pedal a little more than needed?

Just finished the episode..must say it was not too great, but I like the part where they were destroying the Evo7.

brows.gif

It would have been worst if they destroyed a Zonda or a 911, but the Evo7 is just another mass produced car..

Just my opinion.

yeah, I cannot imagine driving a car with such violent torque-steer. Won't it be difficult (and annoying) to control that everytime you decide to step on the pedal a little more than needed?
yeah.. imagine when u put ur foot down 2 overtake sweat.gif


Added on July 14, 2009, 5:18 pmi juz cant believe that all of u dont quite like this week's ep.. of coz its not as funny as last week's, but this is a motoring show 4 goodness sake..

i think this week's ep ticks all of my 10 yr old boy boxes.. is it exciting?? very exciting indeed!! does it have fast cars?? yes, its got a 500hp evo (which is like a wet dream 4 teens who wears brightly colored hoodies n wit their caps put on backwards) n a 400bhp porsche that can do more than 170mph 4 cryin out loud!!

n 2 top it off, its got tanks!! n an olympic sprinter!! n condoms, n a drug dealer.. wat more could u ask 4??? rclxm9.gif i think this is the best ep so far this series..

Well, other than the Evo7 being destroyed, I think that the Royal Mail battle was kinda boring. The focus rs vs the R26.R was just average..

but then thats just me.

I guess the race this episode is the main letdown. Race with a letter...not to mention Jeremy is not there...and it felt shorter than other races.

dude, i dont know if u'd noticed, but i hate porsche's doh.gif im one of those guys who would rather have a slower, more expensive v8 vantage than a 911.. i would rather have a range rover than a cayenne.. i would rather have an evora over the cayman.. i would rather have an slk or the z4 than a boxster.. n like james may, id have the quattroporte over this panamera..

but as a true car enthusiast, i still wanna know bout all these cars.. i still wanna know all bout em, wats under the hood, wat technology its got, how fast it is, wat its feel like, price etc etc.. as a true car enthusiast ie petrolhead i feel as though im obligated 2 know all i can bout cars, coz theyre so exciting, even ones that i loathe.. lets put it this way, i find out all i can bout proton's n perodua's, but does that mean i like em?? that proton's n perodua's r my cup of tea?? not even slightly dude, not even slightly nod.gif

besides, no matter how much i hate porsche's, i juz cant deny that they r still amazing cars.. the engineering underneath em, is juz breathtaking.. id go as far as 2 say, that porsche's r germans at their absolute best!!

Extractly what i felt on the panamera race, it isnt that exciting enough although its better than the previous challenges like the fuel economy run to some festival on previous season. sweat.gif

I would prefer JC to have reviewed the panamera hands on. The focus vs megane review could have been better if they battled it out on B roads rather on the track. wink.gif

fyi dude, its called the blackpool illumination lights festival, n its a huge deal in the UK.. the big switch on is kinda huge thing, n its quite an honor 2 be given the chance 2 flip that light switch.. up til now, singers, actors, politicians, royalties, peagent winners, celebrities, even the bee gees r the only types of people whos been given that honor.. n its a beautiful spectacle this event..

bout that megane r26r vs focus rs thingy, well, the megane is essentially a tricked out track day machine, n the focus is juz a hatchback that happens 2 work on a track as well.. i think its good they battle it out on the track.. 2 see the real potentials these cars have 2 give..

Well, to be frank, I am with you 100% on this.

Like JC, he hates the Porsche, but I think he wouldn't give up a chance to drive one, would he?

Although (to me) Porsches aren't much of a looker (except the Carrera GT, 911GT3 RS), I'd say that the pure driving fun is there.

Unlike Ferrari's obsession with flappy paddles, I think (so far), only (some) Aston Martin and Porsche has "pure" manual transmission, and not those hybrid ones, even though an auto version is available.

So, I think that sums it up that (to me, again), Porsche is more of a driving car, but not much of a looker. Unlike Ferrari..

dude.. ferrari's does come wit a proper manual.. all new ferrari's, the 430 (excludin the scuderia), the 599, the 612, the california even, comes standard wit a proper 6 speed manual.. the flappy pedals f1 transmissions is only available as an option.. so u can still have a ferrari wit a proper manual if u want to, juz dont check the f1 transmission box in the option list in the order form..

the reason y we dont see much of ferrari's wit proper manual these days is buyers simply choose 2 have flappy pedals (me included, that is if im ever gonna buy a ferrari sweat.gif).. its not that the manuals arent good, theyre as bit as good as the flappy pedals mind u.. its juz that wit the flappy pedals owners would be able 2 say, "i have in my car one of those gearbox like michael schumacher has in his f1 car"..

2 me, ferrari's these days r gettin ugly as well.. i still reckon that until 2day, theres no pretty ferrari after the 355.. but at least, ferrari ugliness i could still bear wit it.. i couldnt wit porsche's sweat.gif

Well, I do enjoy a car without all those electronic gizmo. I think it spoils the fun. The rawness. The feelings. The attachment.

Cars these days are a bit too laden with tech. Look at those cars with electronic gizmos everywhere. Seems to me that they're controlling the driver, and not the other way around..

no laa.. eric's more into american muscles (hence his sig n avatar).. im more into modern supercars 2 be honest, but i do miss the raw simplicity of oldskool supercars that u juz cant get anymore these days.. huge engine, proper manual, heavy steering, heavy clutch, n not much else, which makes em light.. although they r unbearable by 2day's standards, but they give u a sense of feel n excitement that makes u know that ure in a supercar.. modern supercars these days r smothered wit gadgets n electronic trickery.. n although theyre good, making supercars 2day more civilized n easy 2 drive, u kinda lost some of the excitement, the feel of a true supercar.. supercars these days r so easy 2 drive it makes us feel like we're juz behind the wheel of a normal car, albeit a really fast normal car sweat.gif

Exactly. Where's the fun of driving in that?

Although many might argue what a true supercar feel is like....

Some like those electronic gizmo, some doesn't. And then there's those who like a balance of them.

Hmm.

Can you guys list out some of those overly laden with electronics cars?

I have a few in mind ->

- Most new Lamborghinis..

Sad to see EVO VII being destroyed mad.gif
But then again that is court order and jeremy could have won the race by launching the EVO VII,remember EVO have AWD + 2step(Just do tepramod) laugh.gif
Instead of shattering the EVO into pieces vmad.gif vmad.gif vmad.gif vmad.gif vmad.gif
Well whatever.
The Panamera is bloody ugly and have the rising spoiler rclxub.gif
I will still have M5 thank you laugh.gif
The Focus RS vs Megane R26R is good,Focus RS could have gone faster if given megane r compound
For the mail vs Panamera,good one actually and i enjoy it
Overall,7/10 for me
1 for destroying EVO VII vmad.gif
1 for the lack of ultra epciness(The Stig in studio)
And Bolt is a good guest,quite awesome

juz watched latest FG.. not much 2 shout bout this ep, but there r very very useful motoring related advice..

as promised, theres a proton wira on this week's ep, n it was tortured 2 destruction sweat.gif it was a wira 1.6 aeroback in red, n wat tim did was demostrate the effects of not checking our engine oil will lead to.. it kinda staggers me 2 no end that alot of people dont bother checking n topping their engine oil.. that knocking noise that occured was horrible, i felt kinda sad 4 that engine..

it surprises me also that there r some people who doesnt know how 2 check their engine oil, i mean that like the most basic stuff in car maintenance!! this one lady dont even know wheres the dipstick of her engine, n theres this other girl, checked her engine oil by opening the oil cap, took out the dipstick, n then dip the stick in the hole where ure suppose 2 pour the oil in!! i was like, WTF??

jason reviews the murcielago superveloce, n although it was a good review, it still not nearly as good as hammond's review of it in dubai.. watever it is though, that lambo sounds awfully good!! every angle of that car juz screams menace..

tiff reviews a caterham, the roadsport 175 to be exact.. which is suppose 2 be the more civilized caterham, yeah right..

n then theres the crash test.. very very informative indeed, a must watch if ure a driver.. that bit makes me think twice now when i wanna put my foot down driving on a twisty single carriage way.. the best bit of advice that tom gave: "regardless of wat the legislated speed limit is, u should always drive at a speed that allows u 2 prepare for any eventualities, u'll never know wats around the corner"..

juz watched latest FG.. not much 2 shout bout this ep, but there r very very useful motoring related advice..

as promised, theres a proton wira on this week's ep, n it was tortured 2 destruction sweat.gif it was a wira 1.6 aeroback in red, n wat tim did was demostrate the effects of not checking our engine oil will lead to.. it kinda staggers me 2 no end that alot of people dont bother checking n topping their engine oil.. that knocking noise that occured was horrible, i felt kinda sad 4 that engine..

it surprises me also that there r some people who doesnt know how 2 check their engine oil, i mean that like the most basic stuff in car maintenance!! this one lady dont even know wheres the dipstick of her engine, n theres this other girl, checked her engine oil by opening the oil cap, took out the dipstick, n then dip the stick in the hole where ure suppose 2 pour the oil in!! i was like, WTF??

Pity the Wira. The previous owner took care of it, and FG destroyed it.

I LOL-ed hard.

i know the panamera looks controversial, at 1st when i saw it, it looks like a elongated 911 with 4 doors, then after watching the episode, it seems like not too bad.. it's like u can have a porsche sports car but with the practicality of 4 doors luxury saloon.

just watched the episode last night. Seriously...you can expect the women to not know about these. But among those who were interviewed...were some men! I seriously cannot imagine that they don't know when to check the black oil!! shocking.gif Are the cars there so bloody cheap that nobody needs to bother?? sweat.gif This is the first time I've ever seen or heard of there not being ANY oil on the dipstick...Tim's look at the 'oil-less' dipstick was priceless laugh.gif

seeing all these new high performance saloons like this panamera, the new E63 amg, the simply brilliant XFR, makes me feel that the M5 is kinda dated already.. make no mistake, its a still a briliant car, n even in its older age, it still can give its rival a damn good run.. but like i said, its startin 2 feel old..

wat i really wanna see is how this panamera would perform againts the new upcoming XJ..

Yeah on the most recent ep of fifth gear, the short comparisson test between the new merc E class and BMW's 5 series. At 1st when i saw the new E series on car mags i weren't fond with it, and i not a fan of the previous 4 buy eye version.

After watching that segment, now i found the new E class is seriously good looking and its a great car, better looking than the 5 series thumbup.gif For the 1st time, i prefer the Merc than the BMW!

u know wat travis, i felt exactly the same way when i watchin that..

when the pics 1st came out of the new e-class, i thought it was traditional boring e-class merc look.. but now after seeing it in FG n TG, i think its kinda striking lookin (the front, not the back, the back's still as dull as an accountant).. the AMG version, looks even better!!

cars nowadays you gotta really stare at it for a long time. Then only you'll see the beauty of it.

Eg: The Jaguar XJ. First time I saw it, I was like eww... Then I stared at it a little longer and finally understands Callum's language. I've even put it as my desktop wallpaper before I changed it to Taffetta White Accord moments ago.

no, seriously...I actually jacked the car up before taking out the nuts laugh.gif it was so early, before going to work and I wasn't thinking properly. I guess I got the nail the night before. Had to call a friend to help in the end blush.gif Luckily his dad opens a tyre shop near my house, got my tyre fixed there.

at first it looks ugly to me but then after watched it on top gear, i think if i only can have 1 car i would get panamera, it has the performance of a sport car and the luxury of a saloon... i know that the M5 has the same thing but i love porsche haha
it's not bad at all i think

Hmm..Funnily enough, I thought I was the only one picking the 3 Series over the C class, 5 series over the E class and 7 series over the S class..

That was when the E class looked like this ->

But now, this ->

Darn. It does look a hell lot better than the current 5..and the upcoming AMG version just sweetens things up..

I might not be a Merc convert, but the current C class and new E really does catches my attention..

So much for Merc is for old man !!

What the h**k is your problem?

First you came to my thread and made a fool out of yourself.

Now you're here flaming others.

It's out passion to talk about cars, and we love cars. What is wrong with talking about Ferraris without driving one?

yup, the dials r fully digital, like the ones in the s-class.. but the s-class only a portion is virtual, the one on the xj is fully virtual.. so when the car's turn off, theres nuttin on the instrument panel, completely blank.. its when u start the car the virtual dials will appear in a very beautiful fashion, very very nice!! when u turn the ignition, a jaguar logo will appear beautifully in the middle, then it'll fade, than the virtual dials will appear.. so nice laa, i think theres a video of it in paultan.. go check it out, u'll love it!! thumbup.gif

eric, let him be.. we'll juz pretend he doesnt exist here.. hes not really welcome in here anyway.. he can talk cock here all day long, we'll juz ignore him..

hahahaha.. im sure it cant.. n check this out, this is really witchcraft.. even the lcd display in the middle has dual view ability.. its not like those some other cars where the display can split in two, where one half is the satnav display 4 the driver, the other half show a movie or tv 4 the passengers.. in the jag, from the drivers side, u will see that its the satnav display, n when u look it from the passenger side, its showing a movie/tv.. its the same screen, its not like they split the screen in half.. its like when u see it from different angle, it'll be showing different stuff.. thats really awesome!!

What the h**k is your problem?

First you came to my thread and made a fool out of yourself.

Now you're here flaming others.

It's out passion to talk about cars, and we love cars. What is wrong with talking about Ferraris without driving one?

the thing is , can you buy a Ferrari with your passion ?
