Top Gear in the US

Ive been watching episodes of Top Gear and Im rediculously jealous that all you Europeans get to watch it on a regular basis!

I really wish we (the good ol' US of A) had a quality car show. Our heavy hitters are shows like monster garage and Orange County Choppers! :roll: j/k

All fun aside I enjoy the show and need to move to the UK! ha

I know what you mean, I hope to change that someday and start a show just like that here!

Pimp my ride is definatley on my list of things to do in a day.

I need to look into satalite TV and see if any available providers offer BBC2. I saw a recent episode where they're running the F430 against its topless counterpart and its that kind of entertainment I need to distract me from my school work. :lol:

Have seen both the US and UK car shows, my vote has to go to Top Gear as the best in terms of both car anaylsis and entertainment value. Not only is Clarkson outstanding, but the rest of the crew is equally top rate. A lot of my non-car interested friends watch it just for the entertainment value.

I definatley agree, the show has all the perks. It seems they actually know what they're talking about, which is a plus and something new. I think its very cool that they have a track to throw everything against, its almost like a standardized measurement of a cars performance. Not to mention the stig

On a side note ... we do have all the ferraris, ha
