    haha, I live in South Carolina with no AC in my Porsche, and I can totally relate to Jame's choice. :)

    I've been comtemplating removing the power steering system...

    Man, that episode was quality all around. The search for the perfect driving road was excellent and I really liked the review of the Golf W12-650. Good to see Top Gear is back and as good as ever!

    Top Gear is finally back, and they are back as great as they use to be. This episode was awesome, so were the cars and the roads. I really love the gallardo SL, but I just never liked the 911.

    I think they should have waited to do this with the 430 Scuderia. The Aston just seems really out of place and from looking at the video I would think that it's a horrible car to drive. I hope we see some comparison with the 430S.

    very nice-would have been nice to see the 430 scuderia in there. Still a great segment though. I like the gallardo of them all

    Clarkson is so full of ****. How many episodes ago did he totally rag on the Gallardo as a car he didn't like at all, called it boring. Maybe the supperleggera addressed his issues, I guess, but it sounds more like a case of saying whatever it takes to make the story work.

    Yes and I can't remember him talking bad about the Gallardo. He loved the handling. He got one Spyder as said above. He's had a F355, a SL55 AMG, a Ford GT and now a Gallardo Spider :) Cool evolution :)

    Great episode, I had the pleasure of watching it a couple nights ago.

    I do not remember Clarkson bashing the Gallardo, but I do remember him saying that it was close but not as good as the F430.

    Actually it was the review of the gallardo spyder. He said the gallardo (hardtop) was a total flop/boring, but the spyder variant transformed it into a very fun car. And I guess the SL variant did likewise...or...he needed to like the car for the story. :)

    I just saw the episode the other night.
