I was disappointed to realise that Leno really only knows American cars (and supercars probably).

Interesting, although a bit too critical in parts for my liking. The Scirocco was never a supercar, so why use one as a benchmark? I guess that's really a compliment. It's the competent and versatile everyday sports car that I hankered for as a teenager. That's the appeal for me.

I prefer Jason Cammisa's own review from 8 years ago here:

Informative, balanced, though even 8 years on, I feel somewhat over-pessimistic over the availability of spares and future resale values.

Just watched the review from Jason.
WHY do they overdub music! My hearing is suffering with age and I found it hard to hear him clearly.
There you go: today's rant!
