    I thought Discovery Channel only showed repeats.
    If it was a "new" series wouldn't it be on Channel 5 initially?

    Or have I lost my marbles and thrown my Dinky toys out of the pram? :-j

    HT - no need to reply [-x

    Thanks for the heads up Neil, almost missed it. The researcher said he would email me to let me know, but didn't... :((

    Some poorly taken pictures of the program on my big TV :D

    If you want a sports car, the Porsche. If you want something you can live with daily the Z4. But he chose the RX-8 because you can get them for 3.5k cheaper and it drives well.

    So the bargain bucket car...

    Yeh but the RX8 will probably need an engine rebuild at 50k at £1k+.

    Just watched it Gaz.. Great to see it on the Tv ;)

    I know someone who had an Rx8 then sold it after few months..

    Fuel costs were rediculous... That's why there so cheap

    Very good Gary, enjoyed that. J.P said at the end you would have 3.5k left if you bought the RX8, you would need that to keep putting fuel in it. :D

    The zed looked great, and minus the sound generator sounded fantastic.
