    Pug 307 takes on BMW and wins!

    I was channel hopping last night and found this race on Fox Sports. Going on the commentary, the 307 was faster than the 3 series out of corners and in a straight line. Pretty impressive.

    Just a little nudge...

Someone, I once wrote, in the bowels of Peugeot understands handling and how a chassis should feel." - Jeremy Clarkson

    If I can work out how to capture footage I'll post it somewhere.

    I use Dscaler with my tv tuner. Anyone have suggestions?

    I use <a href="http://www.iulabs.com/" target="_blank">IUVCR</a> with the right codec you can do loseless DVD quality captures (works on most Bt8XX chipsets).
    About 1Gb per minute.

    And a more user friendly option is <a href="http://www.intervideo.com/jsp/Home.jsp" target="_blank">WinDVR</a>

    Having recently driven a 1982 Mercedes 280E and a 1984 BMW 528i, I would hardly call a BMW over-rated! The mercedes brought a whole new meaning to "drives like a barge". Talk about no steering precision! The BMW on the other hand was responsive and fun to drive.
