It might be worth noting in post #1 that the Elise lap time is in a 160 HP rover-powered Elise 111S since the question comes up from time to time.

Technically not a Top Gear episode, but this is Clarkson's view of America and its vehicles:

The Good The Bad And The Ugly

I already do that using Front Row running on a Mini that I have hooked up to my TV. It streams from either the Mac or the PC upstairs. S'nice.

At the end of Clarkson's latest column is a preview of his next:

The story of Richard Hammond – or Princess Diana as we now like to call him – has become a national obsession. I am so fed up with people asking how he is that I now smile the smile of a bereavement vicar and say: ‘I’m afraid he’s died’ Read Clarkson on the return of Top Gear

06 Laser Blue Elise: Touring, Sport, Rear brace, SS brake lines, seamless clam, stupid DRLs disabled.
04 Blue Subaru STi


The plural of Lotus is Lotus, not Loti.

at the opening paragraph, it's an interesting view on 'outsourcing' compared to our perspective.

Two days until the next Top Gear, so here's a tip for watching top gear with a Playstation 3.

1. Download the top gear episode from finalgear.com
2. Install and run PS3 video 9
3. Copy the .mp4 file created in step 2 onto either a USB thumb drive, iPod/MP3 player or other USB storage device
4. Plug your USB device into the PS3.
5. On the PS3, go to the Video section, move to the USB device and hit the triangle button. Select and watch some Top Gear.

Looks good in 480i. Didn't try it on my HD setup.

04 Blue Subaru STi

When you DL the file please leave it up as a seed. Early on there are not many seeders so the more the faster we all get the episode.
