** One challenge involves filling the interiors of the cars with water and driving until the water level inside the car drops below the steering wheel. Hammond gets part of the way around the track and May passes Hammond and then passes him again. Clarkson? Well, first his car was so leaky that they drained the tanker trucks trying to fill a car that ''wouldn't fill.'' Then, after they got so fed up and sent him on his way, Clarkson got a short distance (at the most) down the track before one of his doors fell off and the whole load of water drained out. And it ''wasn't even the same door'' he'd lost in an earlier challenge.

--> '''Hammond:''' Now if you're under 12, then to you this car is Bumblebee from the ''[[TransformersFilmSeries Transformers]]'' movies. And in a minute it's going to stand up and throw an oil tanker at my face.

** It gets even more hilarious if you read ''Autocar'' (yes, the review the boys cited was a real one). The Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust was given a rating of half a star. The comparison car the trio used (the Reva G-Wiz)...was given ''no'' stars. That ''has'' to be the ultimate TakeThat against the G-Wiz.

That ''has'' to be the ultimate TakeThat against the G-Wiz. Notable quotes:
-->"It is, in fact, a genuine hybrid. There are so many contributory factors to its makeup that it could, in fact, be more accurately described as a freak."\\
"It's intrinsically unsafe -- lethal, even -- but surprisingly amusing at the same time."\\
"There will only ever be one i-Thrust, and that's probably a good thing."

*** When the skid plate of James' Volvo is torn off after a collision with a speed bump, he fashions a crude replacement by cutting a square piece out of the passenger side door of Jeremy's BMW and bolting it onto the underside of his car. Jeremy doesn't even notice until several days later.

Added DiffLines:

** The Polish FSO Polonez pickup truck and their attempts to put it through the same tests as the Toyota Hilux. The Polonez doesn't even survive being dropped from a crane.
--->'''May''': Maybe we try dropping it from a slightly lower height.\\
'''Clarkson''': It's a bit late now! Isn't it?

* In Episode 4, Clarkson and Hammond get into another round of their long-standing disagreement about the Porsche 911 (Hammond loves the 911, while Clarkson, despite having just completed glowing review of the 911 Turbo, doesn't like them as a matter of principle). May cuts them both off, tells them to take their argument to the pub, and tries to segue into the news, only to be derailed by the others continuing to bicker about the 911. May snaps at them to shut up, announces the news, and promptly drops into a FacePalm when he sees that the first topic that week is ... the Porsche 911.
