The show was called "Super Cars Exposed". Which is becoming my favorite car show these days. Wickedly fast, still smooth, and handles very well.

That is too bad on the Lambo. I`ve always wanted to drive a Gallardo. The Murcileago I feel is too big. But, as far as the Lexus goes, I could not get in the car, (door locked) the dimensions look small in the Lexus.
However, the guy doing the show looked to be 6`1, so if he can get in, I can get in. I`m six foot even. I`ve been in a Ferrari, not a Lambo.

How tall are you kenny?
My favorite car show is Top Gear on BBC. They test drive a lot cars we don't get here in the US along with those we do get. They also do some other wacky stuff including building cars, celebrity guests, etc. It is on Monday nights @ 8:00. BBC usually runs a few older episodes before and after. So, you have pretty good window to watch it.

Lambo of Dallas is only few miles from the house, so I usually stop in just look every 2 -3 months. I really like the Gallardo black on black w/ lots of carbon fiber.

I am 5' 8", so pretty much everything fits. I have friend that I went through college with that's 6' 8". He has to drive a truck since it is all he fits in comfortably. We all went to Europe about 9 months ago, and he really had a tough time there, not to mention the plane flight.

You need to move to Texas, you would fit in well here - lots of tall people and medical jobs.

Yeah, I`m sure your friend had some issues. But, even myself, when I get in a Porsche 997, I like the wide body better. And the seat has to be all the way back. I do not have BBC. But Super Cars Exposed is pretty good. It would be nice to have a Lambo dealer that close to me. Before I fell in love with the Mercedes SL series, the Lambo has been may favorite for the longest.

But now, that hot, mean looking, sleek Audi R8 is what I want in my house now.

Yeah, and they are available for like $250K over sticker! Nope, I am all for my Honda Element right now, I can beat the hell out of it and not give a hoot if it gets messed up, $420K for a 599 and I would be scared to drive it like it should be driven!

I saw the R8 for the first time in person when I was in London and then again at the car show. It looks even better in person. Every time I see it, I like it more.

I saw Ironman this afternoon, they had one in it too. They also had one in Friday night's episode of Moonlight (if you watch CBS).

I would just like to see the 0-60 time better than 4.5 sec. It just looks like it should be faster.
