- Have we had a Top Gear thread yet?
Front lights are too small on the Aston.
Anyway I’ve come up with my Top Gear dream presenting team. Bring back Chris Evans, change Paddy McGuinness for Keith Lemon, mmm, who else? James Martin? If that doesn’t kill TG nothing will. Looks like it has outlived TGT too, isn’t this the last series?Posted 7 months agoprecutduckMember
while I admire the engineering and build in that Roller, there is no possible way I could be convinced to own one, even given I had the means to afford it without a care.
I think that Aston would look betterer in a darker colour, that lime green did it no favours at all.
Like the look of that Fiesta ST, though…😬
If I had the money to be driven around in it, then I don’t think there would be a nicer car to be in the back of. Probably in one colour though, more understated, slightly…Posted 7 months agoCountZeroMember

Thing is, if I was spending that sort of money on a car, I’m buggered if a) I’d let someone else drive it, and b) pay them for the privilege of driving my bloody car!Posted 7 months ago
I actually enjoy driving, I’ll be damned if I pay someone for the pleasure I’d otherwise be missing.martinhutchSubscriber
Flintoff is shit on that Sky version of A Question of Sport, and Take Me Out isn’t exactly high quality stuff.
If Peter Kay’s writing the scripts, might be fine though.
I’ll probably skim the first one. If it’s just Nuts magazine in cars, can’t be bothered though.Posted 4 months agocokieMember
Harris has been posting some behind the scenes banter which he didn’t do with the old TG lineup, so I think there’s better cohesion between the three already.Posted 4 months ago
Love Harris in his ‘Chris Harris on Cars/Drives’ from the early days. I hope they tone his pieces down a bit so he can be himself. We’ll deserved platform for him though.
I’m looking forward to it.kerleyMember
Not looking forward to all the moaners who don’t watch it yet still feel the need for a moan.
Oh but I watch it and moan about it so that is okay. I actually think it will probably be better as entertainment than the last few series have been. For stuff about cars I go to YouTube where there is a lot of very good quality content that is better that Top Gear has ever been at any point.Posted 4 months agoP-JayMember
T’was okay. It’s a bit of a Paddy / Freddie love-in with Chris Harris as the outsider / straight man.
I ‘suppose it’ll never live up to expectations, TG was a bit old and stale 2/3 year before the first 3 left, and whilst the faces change it’s fundamentally the same show. It’s not bad, it’s just all be done before.Posted 4 months agoprojectMember
As per usual excellent cinematography, and scripts written by schoolkids, a huge improvement on the fun and games of the last few series, some some good funny bits as well.
Freddie is a real classic, and off the ball comedian, where you never know what hes going to do next.Posted 4 months ago
Got rid of the Volvo 2 years ago.
Harrogate pretends it’s southern, but at its heart it’s northern.
Wilmslows in Cheshire isn’t it?
Yeah, never been there. In fact I’ve never been on the M6 further than the M54 turning. That whole west coast until you hit the lakes is lost on me..Posted 4 months ago
Sorry, missed that. You southerners all sound like Janet Street Porter with a strangulated hernia.
Harrogate isn’t quite tasteless enough to be southern, but it’s getting there. If Brian Aldridge had ever left Borsetshire (apart from that time he knocked up Siobhan), he’d have found himself right at home.
Wilmslow is technically in Essex, but aspires to be in Surrey.
It is entirely populated by footballers, **** and people who appear in soap operas.
Aren’t stereotypes fun?Posted 4 months agotwonksSubscriber
Presenting top gear must be one of those jobs that celebs who have an interest in cars (and messing around) get excited about. Then they get on set and realise the show is bigger than they are and are somewhat lost for a while.
It was all a bit forced and scripted, as is always the case with the show. Found myself turning it off half way through. Will give it another go next week.Posted 4 months ago
