I might be being biased, but the M135i & A45 would of killed it in the Hot hatch comparison.

Maybe the A45 would be but nobody knows for sure yet. However, a basic M135i isn't much more than the competition. In fact, when I enquired about the new Focus ST the BMW was cheaper by quite a bit on a PCP.

I have to admit that I was really expecting Clarkson to bring out the M135i at the end when he was saying which one he'd have. He loved the M135i in his review.

I liked the hot hatch bit and was quite pleasantly surprised when they went onto the Kia but it ended up a stupid review. The rugby bit was crap and it was all rounded up by having that irritating little fuck stick Hamilton on it. What the fuck has happened to his accent? I thought he was English but it would appear that he's actually Ameringlish.

List price is what matters though, PCP and all other accounting tricks are not a price. Also a list price BMW has nothing in it. The focus will have electric seats, cruise control, parking sensors etc, BMW will want you to spend another 2k on the list price at least.

Hammond is so boring, his humor is the level of a 5 year old child. That handbrake bit was making me cringe, Jeremy makes a funny point, then Hammond repeats the same words over and over again for 5 minutes pissing his tiny hamster pants.

I know, what a fix.... Not gonna have a German top the times are they. Such a false program.. Brit in a shit Merc this year, give him and his fans a boost !

Get them there on the same day, that's the way to do it properly.

No doubt the BBC & Clarkson are getting a few Benz out of it!

Not sure, doubt it... No reason to do so then. But German boy on top and English lad featured.. Of course he was gonna come out quicker.. They took the piss though by so much.

the wrong/different wheels driving it so its like comparing apples and pears

anyway its the lump of lard behind the wheel between point A and B that makes the difference not a drag race or a wank around a track

you could have a 135 and look like a photocopier salesman/woman/person
