Tiff Needle is a nob !!

I get so bored of seeing him just abusing nice cars.

Yes he can hold a nice power slide, big deal well done.

But what does he ever tell you about what its like to own a car as an everyday driver ?? NOTHING !!

I must admit I got bored and drifted off, but did he mention anything about build quality, or the ride on the road, driveabilty, economy, carrying capacity, Insurance, MPG, value for money, how it compares with the old model, or the current competition ?? I doubt it.

All he did was smoke the tyres for 5 mins..... It was fun for the first ten years he was on telly, now its just a bit tired !

totally agree all he did was thrash around the track playing with the centre diff options and no mention of normal road ride quality or anything like that running costs, etc........

The annoying thing is that he is obviously a talented driver, and knows the ins & outs of a cars handling...

So why can't he just do a proper road test, then his opinion would carry some weight !!

Thumbs down the new sti

don't know why i bothered to watch 5th gear last night. i felt that tiff never really tested the car properly. it was almost like they had a short slot so just rushed it. he quoted that it had been long awaited so why not give it the time it deserved. would of been better showing it on top gear. they would of apreciated it more. just my opinion more.

Is it just me p155ed off with watching adverts. If they showed 5th gear without them it would only be on for 20 minutes....
