Besides, those wheels look badass on the comp package, and cost more than half the price of the option.
Yeah it's really about whether or not you plan on keeping the wheels! IMO

Hey that fat wreck Clarkson is on constantly in our house too. There's a U.S. version of Top Gear but we never watch it, because without Clarkson, where's the fun?

Anyway, one question for you. The audience members look like a tough crowd. like the folks over hear who watch bass fishing shows (guilty), whereas BBC America appeals to a different demo here. If Clarkson has universal appeal in the U.K., how come only the toughs come out to see him live?

Button? What button? I didn't get any special button?

And 4 grand?

Are there two Competition packages, and Clarkson got the bad expensive one with special buttons?

Or maybe he was just full of shit, as usual. I LOVE his shit, don't get me wrong.

The button is the EDC button, which yes is available standalone, but since it's also included in ZCP, he included it in his impressions. He was referring to the harshness of EDC Sport, which I agree is absolutely brutal unless you're on a totally flat, smooth track. My impressions are coming from a non-ZCP car where the Sport mode is a fixed firmness, whereas ZCP's Sport is adaptive, but I imagine it's not all that different.

The extra cost was because the car he tested also came with matte paint, which is apparently a lot less expensive in the UK.
