    [10x02] October 14th, 2007

    In this week's programme, the presenters revisit their attempt to build amphibious cars, and face up to one of their biggest and choppiest challenges to date. Also, the Audi R8 attacks the Top Gear track and Jools Holland is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

    The Star in the Reasonably Priced Car is the musically multi-talented Jools Holland, while rumour has it that the charred Cool Wall is properly back in action.

    then the first episode pre-discussion thread should be edited, cuz now it's as if the amphibious challenge will be shown both the 7.th and the 14.th

      If you'd looked underneath it, you'd of noticed this:

      29/9/07 - UPDATED LISTING:

      In the first of a new series Jeremy, Richard and James drive three lightweight supercars across Europe in search of the best roads. Plus Jeremy finds out what happens when you put a Bentley engine into a VW Golf, and Dame Helen Mirren is the Star In A Reasonably Priced Car.

        remove the top text so it's not confusing, in stead of pointing out the obvious....

          Anyway...

          That Golf looks awesome, can't wait to hear it properly...

          And out of the 3 supercars, I'd have the Superleggera. The Porsche is too track based (as they talked about with the GT3 RS at The Cool Wall, as is the N24. Though the Aston kinda looks awesome from the outside.

          Also...

          TOPGEAR IS ACTUALLY BACK!!!! WOOHOO!!!!

              Really looking forward to the R8, and indeed more car review segments in general
              I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now what I'm with isn't 'it', and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me. It'll happen to you...

                    How many episodes in this season do you know about, besides these two?

                      I'm only guessing this will be a good one because of what I've seen in the series 10 preview and the amphibious car episode in series 8 (my all time favorite ).

                          Have you read this about the 2nd episode. Warning spoilers ahead!!!
                          Sorry if it's a repost

                          "This week’s Top Gear sees the glorious return of some old favourites.

                          In a nautical comeback of Titanic-raising proportions, the amphibious cars from series eight are ready to set sail once more. They’ve been treated to a host of technical improvements to make them a bit more seaworthy, and now they’re ready for a voyage into the unknown.

                          Also, Audi is very new to the supercar game, so the odds are stacked pretty high against it hitting a bulls-eye the first time out. Jeremy sets out to see if the new R8 can really challenge the Porsche 911 for bragging rights at the squash club."

                            this thread really needs tidying up.

                            on topic, can't wait for this ep, after seeing the preview footage this sunday the channel crossing looks mental, the previous amphibious attempt was one of my favourite episodes. R8, can't wait to see what time it sets.

                            I'm so glad we have top gear back!!!

                                  A mate of mine will drool over that episode as he fell in love with the R8 for whatever reasons. I'm really looking forward for the amphobious part, the preview showed them in open waters which will certainly be a good laugh at last.

                                    Really looking forward to the amphibuos cars again, that should be great.

                                    But I was hoping they'd have more segements in each episode like they used to. The first episode of this series had the Golf, the news, the lightweight supercars and the Star in a Reasonably Price Car (can't really count the Cool Wall). By the sounds of it, this episode will only have four too, which is a shame. Is that the reason there are more epsidoes? Longer clips spread over a longer time? As good or funny as some clips may be, they can get boring when they take up half an hour of the show.

                                        Going to be good fun watching James sink in the British Channel

                                        Audi R8 is going to be good, I know Jeremy as a soft-spot for that car.
