    As title!!

    BUT I do hope its back to the old format and that Prat Tim Lovejoy is not on it.

    Its only on for 1/2 an hour but looking in the paper there is no mention of Mr Lovejoy!! only the old crew. Tiff, Tom, Jason and VBH!!!

    According to the Radio Times website tonight's episode will include the first TV test drive of the new Audi R8. :thumbsup:

    Also looks like it's an hour long episode from 8-9pm so someone's got it wrong!

    Here's what radio times have to say:

    :D

    It was giving passenger rides to a bunch of people wearing Audi jackets - a company jolly I presume. I was tempted to mug anyone that wandered off to the loo and take their place... :devil:

    Why didn't I look in here an hour ago. :(

    Don't think I'd be inerested in that anyway. What's wrong with nice sensible tests about real cars, sounds just like that Top Gear rubbish. :nono:

    Anyone know if its repeated? :D

    Plato and Needell - always great to watch, they must of had a great laugh filming all the 'head to heads'!

    Next weeks head to head is Gallardo Superleggera V Ducati 1098 with Leon Haslam riding!!

    Also VBH will be doing a UK CTR againts a JDM CTR - I'm watching that one as I'm off to Litchfield next week to see one!

    And

    The 205 GTI - really wished I kept mine after watching VBH's little review.

    thanks for the reminder.

    Apparantly on Monday Tiff tests the new M3, be interesting to see how he compares to the previous ones which he liked a lot.

    I've never driven an M3 so can't comment on its ability. However the fact the new one has as many computer controlled functions as the average rice rocket disappointed me.
    Surely the whole point of the brutal engine is to test the drivers skill and nerve.

    Tiff obviously had it turned off, but was it still monitoring and potentially altering the cars handling ?

    I know in some cars the traction control is never truely turned off, but from the way Tiff was throwing the M3 around, it didn't look to be fighting him for control.

    I quite like the look of the new M3. Not normally a BMW fan, but there are now two in the current range that I'd own, the M3 and Z4 M coupe. Still not sure what Chris Bangle is smoking though. :rolleyes:

    I'd much rather have an E30 M3 Sport Evo though. :devil:

    Saw the Nemesis in action yesterday at Chatsworth, and I'm sorry to break the news to you, but its even more awsome in the flesh. In fact, I'd go as far to say that its more evil than both the Cupra Twins added together. :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: & :devil:

    Oh, and I want one too.:lease:

    Although, I'd also settle for the Aston Martin Rally GT.

    I've attached a couple of pic's from yesterday, apologies for the poor quality, but I need a longer zoom.

    Oh, and when did you change your name? Just noticed today.:smashin:
