I read the thread about Skoda and was shocked. 3 of my friends have Skoda's and are quite happy with the car and service. In European countries too the cars are serving well as Taxis.

nice car - i like it. if it comes through with a 2 litre turbo Diesel and the option of 4WD and is priced reasonably, it will be an instant hit with budget conscious family people who would benefit from the space.
considering the silly wagon R is positioned as a Multi Activity Vehicle, the Sandero is so much better.

On the first episode season 14, all three of them (Jeremy, James and richard) drive their supercars in romania. And there jeremy buys a second hand sandero for james as a gift. Also let me add that romania is where dacia's come from. James is shown to be very pleased with the gift and takes the sandero for a spin. Later when the three are talking jeremy makes a truck back straight into the poor sandero. The cars all smashed from the side and jeremey and richard laugh away.

One also cannot complain about supercars going sideways or the various competitions all of which are accompanied by some of the finest camera work on TV. Again no one is forcing anyone to watch this, one can always switch over to Rakhi Sawant , but compared to all the other crap on TV nowadays i'll rather watch these three anyday.

By the way before anyone else points out, you guys are all
Shame on u all!!!!
Yes I agree with that, it's just good-hearted banter. And I agree the camera work is probably the very best in the world. I have been watching this since early 90's when cable TV was introduced in India. Then clarkson used to host the show alone. Also the show then was more about reviews than entertainment. Now it's more about entertainment. Almost all seaons of top gear are avaiable at isohunt and piratebay, so go-ahead watch a few, I bet you will love it.
