I know they have to make a living but that is insane.

Let us know how the Prime Choice ride.
A few years ago we rebuilt a Series 2A 5 Door Land Rover on a ex MOD chassis to convert it to lhd. The only shocks I could find to fit were Pro Comp and everyone panned them. They ran great and the buyer drove it from Virginia to the Florida Panhandle and as far as I know it is still going strong.

Was sad to see hime go, have enjoyed his part in the show for many years.
But, the new guy seems to be doing well.
My only wish is that they bugger off back to the UK and get back to the original format.

The US episodes, are not my favorite. But, did enjoy the Escort Cosworth episode.

Annoyingly Mike Brewer is the worst part.

I'll never forget when they did a Porsche 928, and he threw the 3-piece BBS RS' off the car thinking they weren't original - when they're actually a highly popular OEM addition.

In the words of Mike Brewer: ''olllld owt yer 'and fella you've got yaself a deal!

I always liked Ed and the actual workshop stuff, rather than the car shows that show off exotic motors that I will never ever be able to afford. Which cars are better because they can go around a track 0.001sec faster than another.

I agree.

I mostly watch Roadkill over on YouTube, old Top Gear episodes through Amazon Prime all while patiently waiting for the Grand Tour to start again on the 8th!

I was referred on another forum to the news that Lamborghini has made an SUV. It's hideous. I think Chris Harris summed it up pretty well on Twitter:

I can't disagree with him. .... Still, it looks better than the last time Lamborghini built a 4×4 off-roader.

What !!!! you do not like the LM002 ? awesome beast.
The V12 Countach engine should be removed every 5000km for maintenance plus around 5mpg but what the heck.

I love it, nearly as much as the 101, but neither are exactly the pinnacle of automotive design!

Can not think of any other combination of 4wd vehicles where you would have two cars and twenty cylinders

Ford Excursion and a VW Toureg.

There was also a Toureg (W12) that you could pair with any ol' V8.

Or one of these with any ol' V8!
