    Who saw top gear last night (11 march '18) new car, some new Lexus and a load of kaido and boso. One of the presenters got to drive a mental kaido 280zx.

    Yes I saw it as it was about 'Japanese cars'.
    They actually said something positive about a Honda!

    I loved that Skyline that he bought at the auction. :Smile:

    Yes, but what a pair of muppets. Could they not see that strapping the two together was dumb?

    Was actually a good show for a change, loved the Civic and the Lexus part, the Lexus being an animal and the Civic being in control was great to watch. That auction looked mad though, couldn't cope with that :Tongue:

    First episode of Top Gear I've enjoyed in ages. They're right about the latest Civic's looks too - it is a horrible thing to behold IMHO. Very nice and all that, but I need a car that I like to look at as well as drive - as do many others...

    I think things peaked with the 8gen. I have not really liked anything since. :Frown:

    Agree!
    It's certainly no oil painting (unless you like Picasso) but I guess that's the current 'fussy details' look. Sure does make the old gen 6 ,look pretty tho

    I thought Type-R FK2 was over the top when it first came out but got used to it & eventually had one for eight months. I then PX'd it for current Civic 1.5 Turbo Prestige which again I've grown to like as it is not a plain box shape like equivalent Golf, Kia, Hyundai etc, models. However, I actually prefer shape of FK2 Type-R to current FK8 version. Current Civic is one of best selling cars in USA, as is CR-V, need American marketing in Europe, then I'm sure Honda sales would increase. Americans would appear to value reliability which is why German cars do not as well as Honda in US.
