New episode today!
I just hope they do something with the new Civic, and don't just ignore it like they do with many of the other more reasonably priced cars.

Any other fans of the greatest motoring show?

On the series preview you can clearly see a scene with James May driving a car and saying

"Now I like an engine noise as much as the next man but...."

He's driving a Civic at the time (You can see part of the wheel and the drivers door)

erm..... it didn't sound like he was going to end the comment on a positive note by the inflection in his voice. :? (I've underlined the particular word in question)

So, is the car too noisy in your opinion? I guess he might have gone on about something else, but supposedly he's complaining about the cars sound proofing or something related to that.

Oh yeah, and I heard they'll have a new member on the Top Gear team this series.

Well the engine is a little loud, but it sounds so sweet you can forgive it.

It's certainly better than the rattle. At 70-75mph. I have no problems with cabin noise on the 17s and the 1.8i

What a waste of space that was :x . Top gear is a funny prog to watch, but as far as reviews go, unless you have just won the lottery you may as well pick up the national tabloids on a Friday.

Yeah Top Gear used to be so much better.

That civic 'review' was just a bunch of marketing pictures of the car and some vague stuff about being able to hear the engine (being a diesel driver that's never going to affect me!!)

Oh well, it could have been worse I suppose; they could have run a test where they compare it's acceleration to a bus load of nuns or something stupid like that.

I agree. Although Top Gear is entertaining the Civic feature was a bit sketchy, but a good review overall.

Well I didn't think that Top Gears Civic review was bad at all.

It's what made me BUY a civic!
