    Sorry guys, I couldn't identify the root url so you'll have to go here: http://bimmer.roadfly.org/bmw/forums/e46m3/5829664-1.html

    Basically....the base 911 is no different than the 996 BUT the new 911S is da bomb!!

    Why is it that whenever Stig tests a car I am interested in it is always raining??

    He always has such strange complaints.

    True but the shift knob falling off is pretty relevant if you ask me :big grin:

    It was great how the Stig turned the car back around after he spun out.

    I still like Tiff better, but too bad Fifth Gear blows compared to Top Gear

    It seems like he's trying to take a shot at Porsche's build quality. I'd have to say that it's pretty fantastic but maybe I'm just lucky. :o

    as much as i like top gear and as much i consider clarkson to be the best automotive journalist out there, his hatred for germany and german product is getting obnoxious. its funny once or twice, but in EVERY show he makes the same comments about german cars. hes gotta get some new jokes.

    seriously, put a porsche sticker on a ferrari and hell claim its "lacking the passion of an italian sports car", put a ferrari sticker on a 911 and hell call it a "design icon" rather than a "hyped up beetle".

    youre not lucky. youll have a hard time finding a single porsche owner out there who has problems with the quality.

    IIRC, they rank pretty low on initial build quality ratings.

    I think they will actually do multiple laps.

    I generally don't listen too much to what he says. I've seen some other reviews that I completely disagreed with and I think he's gotta be paid to say what he does. But I'd like to see the vid if anyone has it.
