    Fairly sure that it wasn't. Didn't even bother including it in any of the hot hatch group tests

    I don't think so either cos 3years ago when i was buying mine i was watching all the motoring programs to see a review of the gsi and i never saw one.Clarkson did mention it in the motoring news part of the show and they showed a little pic of one but said no one will ever buy one

    He does that with the cars he dislikes, he's a bigot.

    He made the Mustang out to be really poor IMO on the last Top Gear.

    Hammond said it was really hard to drive, then did his piece to camera, whilst power sliding one handed They talk shite sometimes - but very funny program!!

    Tbh Top Gear would have slated the GSi anyway. I don't think it got a very good write up anywhere - the oposition pretty much whooped it.
