Yeah first episode last night

they also said they were made upto 2001 !!! i cannot imagine a 51plate reliant

I wait till 10 in HD on BBC 1.

I want a robin now. Just to mess about it.

it was brilliant couldnt stop laughing

Is it repeated on normal telly rather than iplayer?

Yeah it was very funny hehe

I watched it on my Freesat box via the new iPlayer Beta, didn't know it could do that until last night, worked pretty good for a beta app.

You can get it working following the instructions here: freesat.co.uk/ind…ain

Great, it's repeated on a Tuesday or Wednesday isn't it, so I'll catch it then. :thumbsup:

A friend had one with a dodgy starter motor (I think) and he used to turn it over to give it a whack.

Weds 9pm on BBC2 ,My mate had one and someone leant on the door while it was open and the door ripped clean off ,

I wanted to see what that 'youth' had done to his at the Robin Reliant owners club, bet he gets all the chicks!

Everything about the reliant was hilarious. I wasnt expecting him to flip it, but its up there as one of the funniest moments in Top Gear along with that van that Hammond flipped on the Top Gear race track.

Even the smart video editing at the end with the canal. Genius.

The last date of production was Valentine's Day in 2001... meaning the vehicles would be registered on 'X' (not '51').

The '51' plates did not come into effect until 1 September 2001.

BFN,

fp.

Got to agree, I was nearly in tears laughing at pretty much all of it...

My mate used to have one - I can't remember the number of times we used to up-end it in the pub car-park, leaving it pointing skywards.

Thinking back, it must have p***ed him off no end as it was almost everytime we saw it :whistling:

it was brilliant :lol:
hopefully top gear is back to its best after the last couple of poor seasons

I cried with laughed at the robin bit too! I want one so bad now, just for the purpose that i can drive past someone and flip it right infront of their eyes haha! oh, and to do them bad ass wheelies yo!

the bit at the end when it rolled into the canal was a bit insensitive after the recent deaths in afganistan when 4 soldiers lost their lives when Their Ridgeback vehicle left the road and landed in the Nahr-e Bughra canal but hey ho life goes on

lol I know quite a few people who watched them filming this!

Reliant robin was funny I couldn't stop laughing every time he rolled it. I also lol'd at the chatroulette reference also

Production date has nothing to do with the registered plate, find one in … Production date has nothing to do with the registered plate, find one in a crate and you can register it tomorrow with this years plateTGIRNT :thumbsup:



True I went to buy a car once that was plated 3 years after they stopped making them.
