Via Autoblog, you can now do your own version of TopGear’s Cool Wall.
I’m sure this is a one-time only app. I can’t imagine I’ll ever go back and check it out again, but it’s fun to do that one time. As you rate each car, Clarkson himself pops up with his thoughts as to whether he agrees or disagrees.
FYI, there’s no Saabs there to rate (but the TTiD would be Sub-Zero for mine) and the BMWs are all uncool.
Here’s mine. The Porsche and Aston are sub-zero.
Cars are apparently more expensive than ever to own and run.
I think they’re also better value than ever. When you consider that a Saab 900 cost around the same in pure number terms in the 1980’s as a 9-3 today, then factor in the equipment you get today and the effects of inflation on 1980s numbers, I think we’re doing OK.
Ryan has video footage of the recent IIHS test of the 9-3 Convertible, which you’ll recall was rated as a top safety pick, joining the 9-3 Sport Sedan as a recipient of this award.
I wonder when they’ll be testing the SportCombi?
