RH: 1 word: bittorrent. I never miss an episode of 5th gear or Top gear. 5th's format has been re-done this year and I don't like it as much as I used to. Top gear won't be airing its new season until Hammond has recovered from the crash.
Re LUPO: The diesel got 75mpg. The gas model got 42mpg (i think).
Great segment! Don't forget they're talking imperial gallons.
I'm certain that if they offered the Lupo in Canada, it would sell well here. 1) we like smaller cars, 2) the Quebecois in particular love their VW's (they sell more in that province than any other), and 3) in general we go for diesels in VWs.
Yah think it would have flipped or would it spin out? I kept asking about the stability of my xB on hard cornering and no one says that they tip over but I already had a front wheel off the ground . . . one advantage of slightly reduced traction from over inflated tires is that it may slide before I tip over and I don't have to worry about the side wall rolling over and breaking a bead then flipping from the sudden loss of air in a tire. Those stunt drivers that drive around on 2 wheels have a lot of air pressure in their tires to be able to do that.
Interesting videos for sure.
