Top Gear Goes Historical on 80s BMW Convertibles

The fellows from Top Gear do it again!

In this fun video clip, our favorite trio of car guys get their hands on late 1980s BMW 3 series convertibles, and put them to several comparison tests. One has been hacked to death with aftermarket accessories, one has an automatic transmission, and the last has a manual transmission. Hilarity ensues when first Jeremy & James head off for a 0-100 race (leaving Richard behind when his alarm system goes out of whack), followed by a trip to a forensics lab, to see just what kind of history the three cars may have experienced. Finally, they test the theft prevention of all three convertibles.

As usual, when the Top Gear guys get their hands onto anything, you can expect good humo(u)r and mild disaster.

The video itself is from a few years ago, but worth the watch even four years later!
