I remember I told him one day that Subarus outside of North America come with FWD his jaw dropped from disbelief
Ya some of the Japanese market and Europe got fwd with smaller engines. The cars even look smaller and cuter.

I'm usually just a lurker but the British Top Gear reference was well done, made me chuckle.

Rutledge Wood is a tool, not funny at all.
Adam Ferrara is a bad actor
Tanner Foust is bearable but had a Richard Hammond quality, he's never going to be the star of the show.

It is just poorly executed, I personally don't mind The Car Show, because Adam Carolla is funny and so is Matt Farah. Top Gear USA, Australia are massive fails because the guys that do Top Gear UK have been together for a long time and are best friends. They are hilarious and they have huge money because BBC knows the show had a cult following so they can afford to do cool things

"Why did they put the radiator on top of the engine?"

"How often do you have to refill the turbo?"

Go back and re-watch Seasons 1 and 2 of the UK show. It's similar to how the Aussie and US show are now. I'm giving them a chance to develop into what Jezza, Captain Slow, and Hamster are to the rest of the world.

Remember that 99% of the US (NASIOC excluded), prob haven't even heard about Top Gear before it came to the US. As long as it gets the viewership and support from the History Channel (hell if they can make IRT a success, Top Gear is easy) it'll be just dandy in a season or two. This season is miles better than S1, and I can't wait to see season 3.

I do agree to a certain point. The first few seasons of UK were alright, minus the fat man that May took over for, but at that time it was untested waters. It was a new concept to the world. Whereas US and Aussie are just pure copies and maybe it's just me, but it's not original to me. I actually have fun watching TG UK where TG US I have actually turned off a few times. My girlfriend loves TG UK and despises TG US. I am defiantly a minority who has seen every single episode at least 5 times, but it still lacks something that TG UK has. Maybe it's just the English charm haha

Ya the Aussie on is pretty bad too. I watched a few clips from you tube. Awful. I wonder how the German one is. They got that one chick that knows everything about the nurburg ring.

D Motor!

Also there's a TG Russia which was terrible.

My friends / family don't mind the US one because the cars hit a little closer to home. Rather than some cheap British car that we never go here, everyone has seen a Roadmaster, or a Dodge with a house on the back.

yeah maybe thats part of why the uk is so appealing. So many strange euro cars we'll never see. Also, even though old UK episodes may not have had huge budgets or anything, they were subdued and well thought out. US just jumped in headfirst trying to be as good as, and it just doesnt work.. for me at least. Although I want to see the US episode that mentions our pokey motoring website

Watch it online! http://www.history.com/shows/top-gea...hollywood-cars



I had like 3-4 random people at work mention that my car was on TV. I was like "WTF?".

Them:"It was this show with three guys and cars, I think there's a UK version."
Me: "Oh you mean Top Gear?"
T: "Yeah! Your car vs dirtbike, it was nuts!"
Me: "Hm, I'll check the DVR tonight"
Random other guy butts in: "Those STI's are mean, they can smoke Vettes."
Me: trying to explain that I have the WRX and how it's not quite as awesome as the one in the video.

Them: "I can see why you got that car."
