    The complaints about it not being as good as it was, aren't as good as they were.

    Oh wow, another close one! The researchers are good picking close tasks, I guess that's the idea after all...

    Was it that close? They didn't actually say and I got the impression James might have been there a while...

    Not an amazing one, but better than anything else on tv.

    The "get a load of guests round to do a lap in the new car while we pretend to entertain them" bit wasn't all that funny the first time they did it either, but the race was good.

    It's a bit ridiculous that I can get Top Gear faster via Pirate Bay than via iPlayer. Do the BBC ever give any reason for certain shows taking ages to show up?

    I guess it depends how much other stuff they have to get up. Lots of Wimbledon ATM.

    Although Top Gear is pre-recorded, so you'd think they could do it beforehand.

    They had shows that were on after it online when I looked. I'm guessing there's a legal reason... but it seems a bit crazy.

    Changing the sound of your car via the dash menu on that new Clio is probably the dumbest feature i've ever seen on a car. I'd feel thoroughly ashamed of myself if I actually used that.

    I think the new Golf GTD has that, adding a gurgling note to mask the diesel

    Not really any different to changing the exhaust to a dustbin sized embarrassment which doesn't actually help the engine breathe more easily (as seen on every Citroen Saxo ever).

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Ive heard the clio noise induction thing and it is really cool. I chose the same one a hammond too!

    But, yeah, that was a good package. I love hot hatches and it was a lot better 'test' than when they filled them with dogs in italy.

    You guys realise that "changing the sound" of the car is just piping a different noise through the stereo right? If they could actually change the noise people heard it would be genuinely clever. :)

    @LeoliansBro I think putting an actual physical exhaust system is a bit different to piping it through some speakers. The fake engine noise on the M5 is just as bad.

    It might actually be the most un-coolest thing ever, IMHO.

    Yeah, I don't approve of this nonsense.

    Yeah, I believe they fit them to all the top cars these days. Most informed buyers wont touch a model unless it has artificial engine note generation.

    I can make my car sound like a 1970s mini.
