    Interesting feature this morning on the BBC Autos website (see http://www.bbc.com/autos/story/20130618-clutch-pedal-oblivion ) about how Honda Canada is trying to get people to try manual gearboxes again on their performance models. It sounds like they're fighting an uphill battle, but a performance-oriented 3.5 litre V6 Accord Coupé could be fun! I've always fancied the Acura TSX (=8th Generation Accord in Europe) with that engine (280 BHP), but you can only get that as an automatic.
    Julian.

    Ah, that's ironic. Usually the problem is the other way around, with people like me outside the UK unable to see the BBC's UK-only content!

    There you go thats the BBC for you.. One rule for one, and one rule for another? and then not to mention on the fly changes when they deem fit.

    My brothers in the states use BBC iPlayer using proxy servers.. try beating that or I can give them access to a machine here in the UK over a 100MB line to stream ..
