Season 9  "Stretch Limos"  9x6

I think the Audi is a very polite car.

Oh my god!

Then May turned up and boy were we in for a shock.

Our first task was to test out each other's cars

It hasn't got one.

not all limos are used for hen nights,

Yeah, just on the trigger thing.

I planned to get into the Alfa end and reverse away forwards.

Ok now, just before we move off "Doctor Who", I've got 1 important question:

and then he covered the bonnet with roses, too.

It's not for me. I don't like it at all.

Who'd like to see Billie's lap?

Where do you reckon on the board that was?
Recap of Top Gear Season 9 Episode 6 (S09E06) - 31
I would do this like

biceps straining to burst out of the body work.
