Love that clip, just disappointing at how the BBC/Top Gear quite obvioulsy have been "persuaded" to give the verdict that the works kit comes out on top. Not really the free journalism that it should be.

Any other regular subscribes to the Top Gear magazine here notice how the verdicts in group tests often change slightly when the same test is on the TV show?

Group 19 is correct for the JCW..........mod or not, it does bump up the rating........;)
