I meant to record this. Anyone seen it? Worth catching on the iPlizzle?

I saw most of it, quite interesting.

Kind of said the exact opposite of what Top Gear said before it.

I recorded it, not watched yet. Clarkson was not very happy with BBC2 for putting it on after the very british TG, he was using quite a few expletives on Twitter last night to express how he felt.

Definitely worth a watch; repeated tonight on BBC2 (11:20).

We have a thriving automotive industry in this country.

I think this program was more around VW, and less on German cars.
Best bit was when somebody said BMW = Respect!

I saw it thought it was very interesting, the thing that really got me was that it took an Englishman to get VW back on its feet then once up and running their mindset took over, where as in theUK as deprecated in the program we were very short sighted(through mismanagement and industrial disputes) and ultimately lost our way.
