I really enjoy Top Gear, but Clarkson's last comment kills his credibility. Clearly he's never had to maintain a Land Rover.

Anyway, I recall this was a very early review way back in late 2003 or 2004 when VW was figuring the beastie out.

A later feature from Top Gear has him hauling the 747 down the tarmac.

The stunt with the 747 was done by a rival motoring programme called '5th Gear' - it featured a stripped out 747 but was still very impressive nonetheless!!

Cheers,

Clarkson pulls in 2Million UK Pounds per year for his top gear gig...I doubt he cares much about service hassles or costs (ie: I can't see him waiting in line to get his own vehicles serviced).

He supports British made products to the bitter end, and I can't say I blame him for this view...nothing wrong with supporting your home team!
