While the US version isn't nearly as good as the UK, this was a decent episode. When they described subaru owners me and the girlfriend cracked up laughing, perfect description (im an IT guy and i wave/honk to other owners)

Didn't tanner used to drive for subaru? if so im pretty sure he's used to the community a little at least.

Difference was, when I drove for NASIOC vs the Evo, at least I won

(Stig was 0.8 slower in the STI vs the Evo)

I would say 200k is about right. I mean come one, I have five usernames myself. I actually thought 200k was generous.

good episode though.

I still have to force myself to sit thru this show. Tanner bores it up too much. I like Adam Corolla's show better (still nowhere near TG UK tho).
Plus, I don't get many Subaru waves anymore. Whats up with that?

Sorry to disagree, but that's not entirely correct.

I have a TopGear video from 2001 with a short review of the EVO7 vs. a bugeye STi.

It ends with Clarkson saying "But, on first impressions, I'll take the Subaru."
