I've still to watch the programme, but will give a watch over the weekend. From reading on the fast datsun forum, lot of the people thought it was edited by the Daily Mail. But i'll reserve judgement till i see it myself.
I don't need the bnp website or the salford website....

My research and comments is based on what I see and hear everyday in London!

My comments can come across as racist....but I'm a foreigner myself and come from a REAL multi cultural country!....not a fake ass "multi cultural" city called London!....Quite funny how English people use the term multi cultural!!!....even in the programme....clearly its about arabs ....and yet they describe knightbridge becoming more "multi cultural"....

maybe i have a different view on the definition of multi cultural!....

PH should organise a cruise through Knightsbridge :-)
yeah, panda was funny!!!....lol...especially when she had that cheesy look on the roof!!...


but why are you calling her racist????????....clearly her beef is with those loud supercar boyracers....they happen to be all from arab countries....

well multi cultural for me, means different cultures/ races in one particular area or location....

the people on tv, describe Brixton, Chinatown or Tooting as "multi cultural"?! ...where clearly, theres a majority of black/ indian/ chinese in these areas....so how can it be "multi" when theres a "majority"....Not saying that it's bad or not....but just saying it's NOT multi cultural...

some "clever" numpty is going to ask me for stats now!...wait for it!!!...

I think the residents are bloody ridiculous. There was 4 or5 in that meeting when this must affect thousands in those streets. Where did the basis of this program come from.

I think they were pompous. Lovely cars. Perhaps a little annoying if the noise really is constant. The speeding is irrational and I don't like speeding in built up areas.

The guys on camera seemed nice but I found it hilarious that none of these moaning residents actually went down to talk to these people! How ridiculous and oldschool British moaning behind closed doors. They might have been able to come to some sort of agreement.

I'm actually very surprised many of the Arabs raised concerns of what British people thought of them. They should be 100% welcome wether they spend millions here or not. I still find it quite sad they these people have to use certain words that implies Arabs or other races should be segregated. I've never thought another religion or skin colour is any different or lesser than I am. I think it's a ridiculous attitude to have.

People question why they are so rich, why should they have a lambo. Why should I be sitting here in a big heated house, with most of the modern day luxuries and access to modern medicine when millions of people are starving and ill in dire poverty in Africa and beyond.

It's the same thing, just on a different part of the scale. A lambo won't make these people happy overnight, it's a bit of fun for someone born into a specific circumstance. Sadly I think my views are in the minority.
+1 - agree completely.

I watched it. Nice cars and the Arabs came accross well to me. Only thing I would ask is whether they let the cars warm up before hammering them.
Wonder how often they check the oil etc. great having money and flash cars but would
Be nice to know they cherish them.

loved it. well funny.

hope the thing was edited for the daily mail set, the brits came across really badly, lots of terribly pompous under currents of racism.

there's a load of Saxos round here with blowing exhausts, wonder if c4 will come round mine ha.

would love to have to ask myself every morning 'which super car shall I take today'

no accounting for taste in colours and mods thou. but I guess if a normal Lamborghini is boring to guys like that they have to try to make it different

I thought it was really good. I thought the guys came across as alright and was impressed the documentary crew filmed the guy at the end saying "Yeah, you know what, listening to this at 1am is not great when people are trying to sleep, I will not use the car after midnight."

Showed the guys were not just completely selfish. I don't think they are, they are on holiday in London and having fun. Let's just think back to how most of us have behaved on lads holidays in Ibiza or Vegas, we have all been selfish arseholes before.

The old folk did come across as a bit racist, but this is a tricky one. The fact is some young lads are causing loads of grief and they happen to be a different race, I guess the remember the good old days of London in the swinging 60's where it was all hippy Brits etc.
If it had been loads of young English kids driving around they would have just moaned at the 'hoodies' but the fact is the ones that are annoying them are a different race, so they will always come across as they did, it isn't the same England as it used to be, we will probably all be on here moaning in 40 years time when we are 80 about how the planet was so much better when we just had earthlings living in our neighbourhood!!


Good programme though, enjoyed it.

To be fair, London is one of the most multi cultural Cities in the World.

Maybe not Knightsbridge specifically but that is because nobody other than the very well off can afford to live there.

About the program, I'm from London and often go to Knightsbridge in Summer, fair enough they do dangerous speeds but as a car lover/enthusiast, seeing this level of serious metal on the roads is glorious. Yes they rev but they're having fun - I can see how it would annoy locals but the sound of ferraris resonating off London buildings is glorious, let them have their fun I say, albeit responsibly and perhaps put noise regulations in place after certain hours?

really? Imagining that everyday when you're deep in your sleep you hear people walking outside your room, rubbish collectors doing rubbish at 6am, neighbor's chatting loudly or house party til 12pm at night and sounds of cars blasting thur your window to your only room . Many old London buildings do not have double glazing windows. you don't understand those who are suffering so don't make it sound so petty. The phase ''annoying local'' is an out of statement. These people reving for fun is making other people's life a hell, the old lady in the show looks really unstable, believe it or not when someone is exposed to long term nuisance sound it can make someone go crazy. See if you would have the same comment when you actually experienced it.

I agree that the noise level is a tad excessive, however as Panda said "just need to live with it for three months..."
