    Why Brits are so biased about British cars?

    Recently I've been reading about the new Jaguar XJ and notice the difference between the UK based magazines and other magazines. It's like these magazines are talking about two different cars. and that's almost true about other British cars.
    In the last trip to UAE i rented a Jaguar XF. it was a nice car and that's just it, it's just nice. but look at the comparison in Top Gear. not sure if they are talking about the same Jaguar.
    Same about Range Rover, watch Jeremy Clarkson's review about Range Rover in Top Gear. it's nothing less than a commercial, you may think it's the best out there but when you try it everything is meh. a Toyota Landcruiser is 10 times better than that.

    and the thing is none of them is British anymore, some are German, some are American and some are Indian/Chinese so no national proud involved.

    I've noticed that since living in the UK. I've noticed they hate everything non-british. I see it in sports, auto racing, and cars. Jeremy Clarkson is known for his national pride. He will constantly praise British cars except Vaxhaull over other makers especially BMW. I remember an episode of Fifth Gear where one of the guys claimed a Crysler 300C is a better buy than a 335i.

    Kind of weird they feel that way when all their cars aren't even owned by the British any longer.

    Nope, I'm from the U.S. The military like keeping me overseas, which I don't mind.

    Apparently you guys haven't been on many domestic car forums. Go on yellow ullet and listen to Americans trashing any import. It's common for people to think their stuff is superior.

    Well you have to have a leg to stand on, you'd be delusional if you thought they were the best. If your country makes cars and they aren't known internationally that well their probably crap.

    British women have $#@!ed up grills.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    typical pride. At least you don't deal with pride in the middle east. People proud with very little accomplishments on a global scale. I am being critical, but then again, we don't even manufacture a single car. So, at least the brits who love their cars and american counterparts are not out of line Click here to enlarge plus, there's nothing like the humble people of certain european countries like sweden, who don't really brag about anything. We can all learn from that; it makes good products just seem better!

    Hey I'm British!

    Our cars suck, they always have .. unless you exclude Aston Martin and McLaren.

    But .. our girls are easy, beer is cheap, and we have some of the best nightlife in the world. What more can you want ?

    England's not perfect, but it's better than the $#@!hole called Calgary that I currently live in Canada Click here to enlarge
