    Default Top Gear

    Just been reading the TV mag for tomorrow, Top Gear should be good looks like they will be road tesing the new Astra VXR along side the Golf GTI. Anyone else noticed Jeremy Clarkson always seems to put Vauxhall down or is it just me?

    "Jeremy gives his verdict on the BMW M5, while Richard and James try their hand at Russian roulette road testing. Meanwhile, the Megane Renaultsport 225, Vauxhall Astra VXR and Golf GTi fight it out to be crowned king of the hot hatches."

    Apparently the Golf is a fantastic car, perfectly balanced and very fast. I also love the aggressive look of the Megane.

    But I do hope the Astra comes out on top.

    i dont think it will.... he absolutly loved the golf when he reveiwed it before. I think he'll say the astra is quick, a bit sloppy handling compared to the golf and a little unpolished.

    The only Vx tha Clarkson seems to like is the Monaro, but then he doesn't lower himself to like anything less than a 3.0.

    Let's see what they put on the cool wall this week.

    So Clarkson thinks the Vectra is a pile of turd, the dissappointment in the Vx range?!?!? *******!

    Good review for the sport hatch... "..needs a straight jacket." !!!!

    The only reason i can see why clarkson doesn't like the veccy c , is the advert when it first came out( it's a phoenominon) and the window screen wippers, and from this he hasn't gave the car a chance !!!

    did you see on the wall though ,,, after the vxr astra s time went up , it beet the golf R32 .. not just the golf gti as clarkson said !!

    lol, i didnt know he sent it back ,, oh thats made me feel better.

    I've owned 3 Focus, then got an astra, and i'd much rather have the astra over the focus, feels better and built better.
    I had a mondeo ghia x prior to my vecci c, and, it was a nice car but, I still think the vectra wins.
