This video shows the Volvo going along some of the green lanes of which we knew, thanks to a magazine article featuring them. The lanes were on the way to the seaside town of Filey from the west.
The green lanes weren't too exciting, with most of them just being bumpy dirt roads. Although, at the end of the video, there is a fording of a stream. The video also shows the complete 6mm front scrape plate which is fitted to the car.
My taking over a month from shooting to uploading was thanks to my video camera and computer repeatedly refusing to co-operate, Youtube repeatedly failing to upload without any apparent reason, and a lack of haste on my part.
Volvo V70XC off roading 22.3.09
Some articulation and use of the AWD system on a Cambridgeshire green lane.
The viscous coupling system takes a few seconds to warm up, but then it's
fairly quick to respond. Once again, it's using road tyres.

Mike Rutherford reviews the 1998 Volvo V70 XC (Cross Country) and puts it's
all-wheel-drive system to the test. He takes the V70 on a road test to see
how it performs and handles, both on and off-road, as well as seeing how
practical it is.
Fiat Panda 4x4 Off Roading 25.08.09
A few rocky sections of a green lane in Yorkshire. In the last clip, I
intentionally took a route to get some articulation, although I didn't
expect to lift the wheels. Also, I was expecting alot more trouble getting
the Panda up the steep grassy hill, which is why I gave it seemingly too
much momentum and power - sorry those of you who resent off roaders for
'damaging' the earth (the grass was put back, don't worry). Once again,
sorry for the wind noise, although at least, this time, the camera is
steady thanks to a tripod (courtesy of Smokinghat12).
The bull bar is off for the moment, due to a pending respray. Also, yes,
the headlights are unevenly bright. 'Tis due to an ongoing earth problem
with the headlight bulbs (we think) themselves.

Top Gear Peugeot 605 Review
Chris Goffey reports on the release of the 1989 Peugeot 605. The 605 was
produced until 1999, when the 607 became it's overdue replacement.
I am one of those people who think that Top Gear should return to the 'good
old days' i.e. real reviews such as this one.
Some additional info if you like the 605 for some odd reason (as I do).
It's a shame that it was plagued by countless reliability problems up until
the later years of it's life.
The diesel variant of the 605 was introduced in 1990, with a 2.1 liter 12
valve unit producing 80 bhp and 180 nm of torque. A turbocharged version was eventually available,
with similar specification, with an increased 107 bhp and 235 nm of torque.
1994 also saw the release of the 2.5 TD 605, joining the range until the
end of production in 1999.
In 1991, Peugeot added a 2.0 liter turbocharged 4 cylinder petrol engine to the
range, with 150 bhp.
The PRV V6 engine was replaced by a new independently built V6 in 1997,
featuring 24 valves, and a capacity of 2.9 cubic liters resulting in 190
