and if you are entering the quiz for the 996, the answer is A...could be B... but not C.
got it, definately not C!! Angel

Had a go at drifting an AMG Merc round brooklands...
Stalled 5 times, spun 180 & 360 more times than I can remember but finally went 80% the circle in a drift .... YESSSSSS
what fun
Drive

What a wasted opportunity. Review must have lasted all of 5 mins, and proved car could do 30mpg and 158MPH.

SH!T show as usual

Utterly utterly utterly pointless Evil or Very Mad . Tiff drives like Miss Daisy. Gets 33mpg. Tiff drives fast in a straight line. Goes more than 150mph.

What did we learn from that? Dont know

Any car programme is better than no car programme at all, but that was just beyond belief.

glad its not just me...I watched that and whilst i'll accept that fifth gear is usually bad, that was stunningly pointless.....I get get more enjoyment watching Mike Brewer and Edd China do up some crappy old fiat...and thats not exactly taxing viewing now is it?

Oh for a decent regular motoring programme who's target audience is not someone 18 to 26 with the attention span of a fruit fly... nooo

Scots=PEE
Literly means piss urine pee etc.It is not a slang word as so many people assume but an ancient scots word, Scots being the Language of the Lowlanders of Scotland FACT!!
