Hey, it beat the Renault, and the Vauxhaul in the straight run. No turbo lag at all. just a bit off around the track.

For me it doesn't really matter who made it around the track first. It's not like I can get a VXR or Reno in America.

Would still pick the ST though since I'm a focus kind of guy :P

I'd choose the Vauxhall immediately, just for it's styling. Looks fantastic, especially with the big wheels.

but can Clapton play guitar through the aux input? Pretty funny episode (the handbrake stuff was great) and as usual i thought Clarkson did a good job comparing the three cars. Its an easy choice for us since they dont even sell the other two brands here.

I thought this was already posted here about the show but oh well, i cant find it today
