    i didnt like the top gear show. he tried to say that a Civic SiR Euro was better then an Audi R8. Dont get me wrong the SiR was bad ass and i love the hatch, but when the R8 is goin round turns with in the lines and not even winding out in RPM's and the civic is sliding across the road into the other lane and screaming to keep up. i say he was paid to make the car out to be greater then it was.

    you know, they have actually driven the cars, and as i agree that the r8 is a damn sexy car, that doesnt mean its great.
    and knowing that they do do a lot of testing of super cars, they also do usually give the recommendations to the average class of car that is easily affordable to the main class of people that actually watch the show. not everybody can afford an r8, but most likely can a civic.
    :lmao:


    dont get your panties in a wad. its the internet, i know, serious business. ;)

    you would have to watch the video then, you dont understand. the R8 was driving a perfect line while the civic was screaming to keep up and sliding all over the place. they may drive a lot of cars but that dont mean they are not paid to say something isnt better then something else. like i said i liked the civic but still it didnt match up to the R8 in any aspect. besides, its my opinon, i like realistic tests. like cars you know would be on the street at the same time. civic vs corola, civic vs caliber. mazda6 vs ord fusion you know cars like that. not a super car vs a entry level car and say the entry level car is better in handling and speed.

    I have no idea why Audi wouldn't counter their bribe with more money. I doubt that they were paid to say it. Unless you've driven both, you really have no room to talk.

    I think it was probably a "bang for the buck" comparison.

    1M, Evora S, Cayman R. Yet no TT-RS.

    Also they never tested those three on the track to compare times, just a drag race.

    I have to say though that this episode is one of the better UK Top Gear episodes in a while. I really liked Hammonds review of the Marauder.
