    Seriously, do they NEED another talking head? I mean how much screen time can they give all of them in 45 mins? Last time they added Tim Lovesboys and we got so little of Tiff and Jason that it was disgusting.

    Please 5g, more Jason v Tiff, and less of these babbling "shockers". Wookiee and Hedgehog are plenty enough for the cocking about.

    His wife heard him on his radio show say he'd leave her for Jodie Marsh (some slutty model) she was angry so she told his Lotus Esprit (worth £25,000) for 50p ($1, €0.70). He decided he'd build a car by attempting to get huge discounts on all the things. I suspect he did this by saying he'd plug the company on his radio show, very smart idea

    Still, car looked ugly

    Well, Clarkson bought a Volvo for £1 ... so a 39p Bimmer wouldn't be out of the question if it was a 1980s 318i that a dealer had kicking around waiting to go to the scrappy.

    As for Tim Shaw, the first thought I had was of that bloke that did all those Demtel ads in the mid 90s. Was very famous in Australia for a couple of years.

    this ep looks awesome...new HQ for fifthgear looks promising....let's just hope the whole season gets as good as this first episode.....

    btw that new presenter Tim Shaw looks like a funny bloke..at least he's not as gay as Tim Lovejoy...if they keep him off the real cars than it's ok by me...his taste is really bad though looking at that automatic beamer

    and btw I really like Tom Ford reviews....would really miss him if they got rid off of him

    but that was a convertible E46 beemer complete with carbon fibre bodykit/bonnet, some big rims, a full set of audio system with plenty of LCD screen, apparantly over 300bhp, all for 39p...

    Yeah, it's cause it was all "donated" in exchange for free publicity or whatever probably.

    There is no replacement for displacement.
    - Wolfgang Bernhard, then Chief Operating Officer, Chrysler Group talking about the Dodge Viper SRT-10
    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

    Wasn't Tim Shaw featured on Fifth Gear in the past? I don't see why they need an extra presenter, especially another extremely minor 'celeb'.

    I'm not usually terribly excited by 5th gear, but this does look to be a fantastic first episode.
    Can't wait to see the moment that apparently had both Tiff and Jason scared while racing...
