  13. As the mummy of retired greyhound, I'm with the dog any day. Just hope that pretty girl enjoyed a happy retirement and wasn't shot or something.

    I never enjoyed the mk3 if I am honest, my dad has a 2012 2.0 and it just doesn't feel like the old one, it just feels to built up, too much like a 'normal' car when compared to the NA and NB which both had that rattly go kart feel that made the 5 so famous.

    Not to mention the late model mk3s where pushing 1250kg over the NA/NBs ~1050kg

    Why is there Splinter Cell Chaos Theory music in this? Awesome!

  16. A dog has more horse power than a car? Dog : 379 BHP

  17. Max Rein says:

    The drawback to the mx-5 is that hyenas understeer. Classic top gear stuff this is.

  21. 1:13 The reason most people didn't like it.

  22. The best logic ever- oh wait this is normal

  23. The discussion about the animals' driving wheels/limbs has made me laughing almost to madness :D :D .

  24. Jy Jym says:

    the mx5 is a of rubbish driven by hair a tvr.

  25. Top Gear be like, lets race a Range Rover against a piece of shit travelling through the plumbing system.

  26. Keith Newton says:

    this is meant to be bigger car to the nbfl it replaced but the inferior is more cramp ! The boot is smaller . my crutches no longer fit in the boot so the mk3 or NC is so far.

  27. Low Gunfire says:

    That discussion at the end is gold!

  28. Nila95 says:

    Best selling roadster because it's cheap so mid-lifers can afford it

  29. Mr. Lince says:

    dog running is a big crime !
