    Re: New Series of FifthGear tonight (UK)

    And Vicki tests the S5 vs the 335i, should be interesting

    My torrent is waiting...

    Re: New Series of FifthGear tonight (UK)

    Oh next week will be amazing...

    Tiff and Jason race against each other in the 997 Turbo and the R8...OMG, can't wait for that one.

    [edit]

    Must set sky plus to record it. but the test has already been done at the Ring this weekend...


    Re: New Series of FifthGear tonight (UK)

    A transformation from the garbage we've had from 5th Gear in previous series. Loved the new Maserati - certain it will give the AMV8 a run for it's money - think I prefer the Maser - Maserati made from Ferrari components and the AMV8 made from..-whose bits? (sorry RichC ) but I've always loved Italian cars. Makes the 997 S look cold, clinical and not very good value for money in comparison (that should cost me a few more friends around here). Tiff in the Veyron was good but yet again the frustration of overly loud music drowning the sound of the car - especially that wonderful whirring starter when firing up

    Re: New Series of FifthGear tonight (UK)

    No, it was a blue Carrera 4S in the preview clip - sorry.

    Was it? Damn, sure I saw the rear air intake. Mind you I just associated JP with a turbo (as he's got one) and perhaps just thought I saw it...anyway, it'll be very interesting.

    Re: New Series of FifthGear tonight (UK)

    Yup, one single frame (if you hit pause very quickly) shows Carrera 4S on the back

    Hey watch your mouth young man! There are quite a few of us AMV8 owners here. But seriously though, when I look at my AM, all the faults of the car doesn't matter anymore.

    Re: New Series of FifthGear tonight (UK)

    Lol, Looking at the 335 vs the S5 video, it seems that 5th Gear is taking a lesson from Top Gear, in terms of editing. The camera angles, effects and editing used on this episode looks like something out of Top Gear...Which is awesome in my opinion.

    Re: New Series of FifthGear tonight (UK)

    I don't care if the BMW was Pounds5k cheaper or a fraction of a sec faster round a track, there's only one place I would spend my money and that's on the S5 when given the option of the two.

    Only envy - they're both great cars! Still think I'd be tempted by the Maserati though. But it would be great if Maserati have started building good cars again after so many years in the doldrums.

    Did you notice how much the Maser rolled on it's chassis as it took those few bends...looked a big soggy to me.

    It's a grand tourer, not a sports car so is set up for a more comfort oriented ride quality. Having said that all the road tests I've seen say that the Sky Hook (Maser's PASM equivalent) adjustable damping system works well and is a must have on the car. A more sporting version with sharper dynamics will be launched late next year.
