Hmm... well if it HAS to be a fairly casual customisation-style game, then I'm stumped. I don't know of any games like that which have them. I know that Need for Speed: Underground has an Acura Integra, but other than that, I can't help.

Hey HTID, glad to have you back!

Haven't been able to get on NG for a few days, so sorry bout the inactivity.

No worries.

Anyway, I was wondering if you knew of any car customisation games that featured Honda Integras? The ONLY one I know of is Nitto Legends, but I was thinking of finding one a little more casual.

Other than what Rohan said about NFSU I can't honestly think of one. I know that Gran Turismo and Forza 2 both have them, but there is little customisation, nor are they casual.

Hey guys, for anyone who missed Top Gear last week, it's on BB2 right now, and it's a good one. The Japanese transport system is amazing!

Yeah I saw it yesterday. How lucky was Jezza that Tokyo was barren? He'd still be in a jam now on a bad day. Very very close race.

I once drove a Zonda S on a track. Hated it though. It always kept losing control or hitting the guardrail.

How did you manage to get a hold of a Zonda? Was it for a track day or something. Please do tell.

That alone makes you the single coolest member of the Car Enthusiasts Club! Pity it kept losing control though.

Anyway guys, I've done an updated CEC member list in my new post. Please check it out in case I missed your name. I would post it here but:

(a) I'm too damn lazy.
(b) I can edit the news post whenever I need to add/remove a member.

Also, feel free to leave a comment with any suggestions you may have.

Regardless of the fact you hated it, you basically lived out my dream. A Zonda S, on a track, no traffic, no speed limits, just you and the car...

How did you get to do it?

I was so pissed that Clarkson won that. He always wins those races >:(

Yeah I noticed that too. It's just because May and Hammond embody the Top Gear spirit so well: ambitious but rubbish.

You seen the one where Clarkson and James race Hammond to the north pole? Clarkson and James are in the car (some 4x4 monstrosity), and Hammond is on a sledge pulled by huskies. I really wanted Hammond to win that, but Clarkson and James won it (nearly destroying their friendship in the process, though).

That's one of my favourites. Richard suffered so much and still wound up losing. My favourite moment was when Jeremy shot James' Spam with the gun. Couldn't stop laughing when that happened.

I don't actually recall that bit, but it sounds pretty funny and Clarkson-like. Must have nipped out to get a beer when that happened ;P

I can't remember what car they were driving in that episode, though... some kind of hummer-like thing with a re-enforced shassey (sp?) I remember Clarkson pouring himself a G&T at the beginning just because there were no drink drive laws in the North Pole, LOL.

Sorry I haven't been on lately, but I just got home from the races. Here's the site about it. My dad's friend Jimmy is a racer at the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Motor Speedway (PPMS). He's #38 and usually does pretty good. Tonight he wasn't so great. He finished 12th in the heat, and 10th in the normal race. His class is the super-late models. Which means they're newer than the other cars. But with the heats and normal races is, that there's two races, right? The first one is the heats, which is the race that you race in to see where you start. So, Jimmy finished 12th, which means he starts 12th when they do the normal race (which is 30 laps). The heats are only like 6 or 7 laps. They go about 110 or 120 and wreck a lot. It's like, every 3 laps or so someone bumps someone and they go spinning or something. Also, since my dad knows the driver of the car, I got to go down with him into the pits. They aren't like normal pits like in NASCAR. They're more just like the area inside of the track. Everyone stands on top of their trailers to see and stuff. I met all of the crew of the car and I got to work on it a bit too. Not much, just like help grind the tires down and change a few parts here and there. But it was fun. Also, here's a picture of Jimmy.

I think it was the "indestructible" Toyota Hilux with a few modifications, although I can't say that I'm 100% sure.

Hello all, just got back from Spain last night. And yes, I saw some awesome cars. On my stroll down to Porto Banus there was a black F430 with black rims, several Hummers, a bright breen Lambo, an F360 and some other Ferraris, a few DB9s, loads of AMG Mercs, this awesome M5 and a Gemballa Cayenne.

I also ate shitloads of fish soup :P

Seems like your holiday was more fruitful than mine for spotting classy cars. Glad that you had a good time though.

I think it was bigger and more ridiculous (in terms of specs) than the Hilux, but I can't honestly remember. I could probably find out with a quick Google search, but honestly, I'm not that bothered ;P

I'll just wait until they repeat the episode on TV.

Wasn't a classic episode, but it was good enough. Jeremy track-tested the Nissan from the Japan episode last week, he and James did one of those "challenges" with an old Rolls Royce and a Merc.

Best of all, foxhunters and Richard had to "hunt" Jeremy in a 4X4 painted to look like a fox.

Thanks for the thought, but iPlayer is UK only. I think the international version is close to completion though. I'll just catch a replay of it sometime during the week (I think BBC2 replays TG on Thursdays)
