FYI - there is a segment on buying a used (Series 1 in the UK) Elise on the show "Fifth Gear." If you don't get the Speed Channel, (1) you will miss it, and (2) what is wrong with you?

It is perhaps 3-5 minutes long featuring the lovely and entertaining hostess/presenter Vicki Butler-Henderson driving a dark blue Elise. She loves it. I think I love her... :D

Anyway, back on topic, here is the program schedule from the Speed Channel website:

Did it run on the 11th or is it on an upcoming Monday? I didn't see it in the list above.

That's a good episode, it ran awhile back as well. Don't know if it was the same show or not, but there was also a very funny bit on a Smart car drive and gathering, London to Brighton.

Fifth Gear's a great show, I wish that Speed Channel would also run Top Gear.
