She loved it. I wish I knew what road that was, I think I'll be taking trip there when my 4C arrives - so long to go...

Hate the fact this isn't on c5 anymore! Anyone been watching th classic car show, just discovered it and enjoying it on c5 on demand, can I get the latest series of fifth gear online anywhere?

I only use freeview and Apple TV.

Yeah, can anyone help? Desperate to see it also (not for the 4C, just because I've always liked 5th Gear).

VBH loves Italian cars anyway. She use to write for Forza the Fiat magazine, and I seem to remember when she tested a Mazda RX8 against the V6 Alfa Gt, she was very favourable towards the Alfa, and who could forget that cringe worthy moment when she cried at the wheel of a Ferrari!

Was she shown the price list for the extras?

The latest series is on ITV4 and makes a change from the self indulgent 3 amigos, soon to be on nutflix.

In this weeks episode VBH compared used Civic Type R, 147 GTA and Renaultsport Meganne V6.

The Alfa was commended for its interior and sound and was only .2secs slower than the Meganne. (6" v 5.8"). It also looked far nicer than the others.

Well it wasn't that episode after all.
A mistake in the TV listings then.
Don't know when it'll be on now.

Finally caught it this week with the 4C, though nowhere near enough time spent on it for my liking.
Still, enjoyed the Vanquish v F12.
Almost fell asleep when the Range Rover bit came on, definitely a show to record for me!

That's got to be one of Vicky Butler-Henderson's best ever comments:

"You can tell what sex of roadkill you ran over"!
