    • @jon doe your comment history is also a sad, obsessive and spiteful hate campaign against chris. You need to get a life you sad bastard.

    • @jon doe you havent stated a single fact. You've stated and unsubstantiated, marginalised ridiculous opinion. How you've got the nerve to call thst fact is quite impressive. You've got more neck than a giraffe

    • @jon doe hes a terrible driver? He doesn't know the cars he's reviewing??? Dude. Are you smoking some class A shit?

      ryan coxryan cox2 måneder siden
    • @jon doe did he slag off your car by any chance? How you can say he's terrible is beyond me? Either you don't like black men or you have an inferiority complex to articulate and in depth analysis on a level most of us won't experience because we aren't good enough drivers.

  • Hmm I never would have thought that I'm gonna want to get my hands on an 1M but after watching this, it looks lovely..

  • he alone is just saving Top Gear. nothing can top what the 3 did specialy there bond. the bond they made what made the show good. but with chris the show has emotion like what the old series has. that is the missing ingredient and what the show needs

  • Impressed that when you lean on a car with your hands you pull/slide your hand to be covered by the sweater to keep hand grease from getting on the paint. I’ve NEVER noticed anyone else that thoughtful of car paint not even Jay Leno. Nicely done !

  • Love the Lexus exhaust tips... NOT!!!! Would rather my w210, 2001 E55 absolutely anyday! Lighter, more torque and better gearing. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery, and inferiority!!!

  • The E82 for me is almost motoring perfection and is the best thing I have ever driven. A true future classic and to me personally, the last true BMW. As Chris said, the combination of more automation and BMW now shifting the front end looks more akin to a South Korean car (Kia, Hyundai etc) just makes the E82 that little bit more special.

  • not a word of shift lag in the manual m2 "he would choose", and not a word of crank hub flaw of s55 and n55 engines. come smash your valves and burn your money because chris harris approves compromised bmw products.

  • Chris is super wrong about Lexus RCF, 2017 and up is just simply amazing sport car, you can never tell accurately about a car in just 30 min of driving. Never judge a book by its cover. RCF F10 is Amazing.

  • Regarding the M2, surely an M240i with a cheeky stage 1 tune would be a better option for most ? Certainly be a lot cheaper.

  • THAT E28 though!!! I LOVED my E28 528i. I was 19 when I bought it and for me, because it felt so special compared to the 309/205 GTi's and Fords (SuperSport and XR2's)....I still think it might be the best car I've ever owned. Certainly the most special to me

  • Chris will certainly hate me when I tell him that I live in paradise for fast cars: very close to the Portimao racing circuit, with my M3 competition from 2011, and about 10 to 15 days of rain or wet roads per year … So I drive it on mainly dusty roads and have fun 330 days per year … and I am retired: you have the stop watch, I have the time. Sorry Chris ☹☹☹

  • Best of BMW: 1M, loves it. M2, loves it. Old Alpinas, yup. F10 M5...well, let's just show the nice Lexus instead because the F10's a bit dull...

  • Top gear should just be "Chris Harris on cars" How is that not abundantly clear to people being paid to make programming For a living. People are over Top Gears silliness, and ridiculous editing cuts and graphics. Your true talent is sitting right here. Give Chris a massive budget, and let him and Neil make ALL decisions in regards to the show. All i want to see is him driving and talking about cars. PERIOD

  • Dear Chris. Your Lexus/BMW M5 video was filmed right in my home village South Wales, my house is just at the bottom of the mountain which you began your ascent (Ton Pentre/Treorchy/Rhondda side). Next time you guys are around please let me know and put up some nice Welsh tea and biscuits for you.

  • BMW is simply... Breathless, but they almost if not spoilt the M2 due to the weight.. Come on BMW, this is your best platform as yet, also BMW should build a 1 series M (as it should be called) give it +400hp to rival the 45s..dont make the engine transverse, why not make an inline 4 and give it 40% front and 60% back, would'nt this be amazing? So the badge will be 1Ms and be called 1seriesM (you heard it here, first)

  • I think it’s just a bit unfair to drive down a windy icy mountain road and then say that it can’t get the power down. Yeah, I might find myself in that situation, but less than 0.0001% of the time. 99% of the time people who buy an M5 are cruising down the freeway, where the power definitely gets down. Just my .02
