    Can't help thinking the Romanian film was a little flat. I mean, they found the road and then it was all over in a few seconds - what was the point? It really is time they ditched the SIARPC, too; that guy last night was quite dull and wasted time that could have been used to make the Romanian trip a little more interesting.

    I enjoyed it, but felt something was missing from the episode.

    It was good to have the guys back

    I loved that we, and Captain Slow, got to see the Dacia Sandero But I have to agree with MattAllen. I was left a bit unfulfilled by the Romanian bit. Felt like something was missing for me. All in all I think it was a good episode, but I hope next week will be even better.

    I liked seeing Eris Bana on the show this week but I agree that it is boring sometimes I think that it should be missed out of some episodes but still be around.

    The episode was great I enjoyed the Romanian trip a really great choice of cars to drive as well but the road part at the end was a anti climax should have spent more time there.

    I agree; the road section at the end of the program was too short. On the other episode where they were looking for the "worlds best road" they spent much more time. They actually find the Worlds Best Road and it only gets a minute (maybe) of air time. I actually loved that road. It made ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE AT ALL, except to be a playground for you and your car. With roads like that Romania should have the best drivers in the world. Screw "the Ring", I want Cadillac, Porsche, and Corvette testing there. Ferrari has its own track and the streets of Modena to do testing and they do just fine.
