Drove the JCW to work today, parked next to the new Civic. My god, this thing is huge! I noticed because I was driving a small car and it was positively dwarfed....but upon closer inspection, this thing looks like it's much bigger than the old Accords. I used to ride around all the time in my neighbor's '94 Accord

A neighbor just traded an Accord for the new Civic, and it looks to be about the same size as the last generation of Accord.

Because it is. My 98 A3 was a bit smaller than the current gen Polo, which is the model level below.

Honda's got the Fit now, so the civic is free to grow.

I'm wondering how long until VW brings one of the smaller cars to the US. The Jetta has already left the golf platform behind so that it can grow larger...and the newest golfs aren't tiny either.

The Jazz as it's called this side of the pond isn't a new model, it came out 10+ years ago. The Jetta is still basically a golf with a backpack and for some reason it sells like a box of assorted rocks. The Polo would do well on the US city market, but the UP! is WAY too small.

Currently in Costa Rica driving around a Daihatsu Terios. My God, this thing is hilarious.

Can't get out of its own way on the highway. Hitting 60mph is terrifying because you slam the accelerator and nothing happens.

Then again, I drove it through a river with knee deep water and did a few stream crossings and it did fine in dirt mountain roads as well as on the beach.

I'm going to miss the turd bucket, but Damn I wish it had 20-30 hp more for these conditions.

I got my ding fixed at the Audi dealer yesterday. It was fixed under my ding rider. Looks great

Crazy isn't it? Cars are enormous these days. I'm 33 and even relative to when I was 16, it's nuts.

New Top Gear ep2 was much better than ep1, great group of guests getting to Q & A off each other.

Eddie Jordan really should be the host instead of the glasses guy that's a touch too motivated, and they whiffed on getting Chris Harris in there. Le Blanc is actually quite good. Let's not dismiss, this might work. My bias is Clarkson was always a dick hole, meh on Richard, but I do miss May.

There's a saying in TV that your best episode should go out on Ep 2. Many people will miss the premier, those who don't will tune in again and all the people who heard the buzz will try out episode 2.

I honestly think they took their weakest show and stuck it in slot 1, knowing that everyone would hate it simply because it's not Old New Top Gear. Make sure that the most hated episode is also the worst, rather than letting people crap all over your best work.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the next few episodes get better and better as New New Top Gear gets a chance from the public.

Not so keen on the number of celebrities they're cramming in (what does Seasick Steve have to do with Tinie Tempah?).

Not even going to bother watch it, but I have always found Chris Evans incredibly annoying.

It has to stop at somepoint, most makers haven't left room in their line up for something smaller than A-Class, 1 Serie, A1 etc.

Yeah, those turds are super fun. Enjoy man, and congrats on what sounds like an epic holiday. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


Edit: is it a Turbo? Those can boogie just enough to be fun.

Show 2 of TG was definitely better than show 1. I hope they find their feet as it could work out if they spread the load around and do not have too much of Chris Evans whose descriptive powers are weak.

In the old TG they used to make derogatory comments about each others fancy cars. CE seems much to keen to show off his garage of supercars and the rest should start ribbing him.

I am interested in the F pace though it showed well and in the showroom it has the space that the Macan does not which means something to a person like me who no longer drives like a maniac.
