    he only really hates the vectra.... and to be fair if it does understeer like he claims then that is with fair reason imo - A VXR is bought to be driven fairly hard, it should be able to handle well to match the power.

    will be interesting to see the zaffy vxr hooning it round a track though

    it doesnt understeer anything like that with the T/C on, Ive tried, the handling problems that the Vectra have are nothing to do with the power and wouldnt show up on a track like that.

    I was a really mardy sod last week thinking I'd missed top gear (and the repeat on tuesday night!)

    But - bonus...

    It was only available on the bloody t'interweb!!

    Not the best quality, even on 4meg broadband, but it got watched all the way through.

    I knew as soon as the feature started that the S-Max would win.

    Really liking the S-mac I must say. Much better looking car than the Zaf imo, cool seats and supposed to be a cracker to drive.

    lmao @ £30k+ for the merc.
