    Fifth Gear is coming back!

    1) Old season 24 filenames are written here even though it's Season 25 (!) that has aired recently 2) back then when I was downloading the SD-rips of TopGear I was wondering why the people who recorded + transcoded the shows aren't able to spread it in the original resolution like it aired. Now...

    I really would like to know what the editors used as background Track from 9m10s and 37m55s on both Pininfarina segments. Maybe it's something from Eric Clapton?? -because VBH mentioned him in the first part. What a beautiful music :)

    The Pagani bit saved it. The Bowler bit was (IMHO) a better-late-than-never copy of Richard Hammonds Bowler ride back in the days ('I am a driving God'). Since the 300C isn't a entirely american-built car I mostly agree with them. If that's true what Johnny told us with the Rolls, I'm gonna...

    The car is quite easy to drive, the Test Track in Ehra-Lessien is not really demanding for a driver (you just need to know the corner entering speed and both hands on the steering plz). In the Veyron top speed test, James May was wearing a Helmet and that classified him as a Race driver :-P

    IMHO because the Huayra is just a boring and somewhat ugly car. All the Zondas were loud, fast and had some sort of Diva-ish behavior. The new Huayra isn't loud and it doesn't kill you as fast as a Zonda would do. It really is very fast but the front is ugly, the side is ugly and I have the...

    +1 I liked the idea of the 'donkey-powered Bus'. The background music was nice IMO and the Race to the Casino was quite funny. But for the rest I agree, this isn't real TG style anymore.

    [50 Years of Bond Cars Special] 18x08 October 29th, 2012

    I gave it a 9 I liked the 'behind-the-scenes' talk -interesting stuff to hear and learn how things have been done back in the days at the set. I didn't like the BMW Z3 + Z8 back then and so do I nowadays. But they are part of the Bond History so I have to accept them being mentioned in this...

    Fifth Gear is ruined

    I have to disagree at this point. Putting Mister Love and Tom Ford together talking & introducing various Bits of the Show wasn't bad at all. IMHO, the real big damage was the ACE Cafe because it looked like they couldn't afford a Studio. Then the Show evolved with the Car Park plus Studio...

    How to burn MKV file onto DVD?

    Yes, you are both right. A standard DVD has 720x576 in 16:9 which means by playing it the video would be streched in an anamorphic way. Native 1024x576 would be square pixels and this wouldn't be playable in a normal DVD-Player...

    How to burn MKV file onto DVD?

    No it won't be the same. The SD comes in 640x360 and at least SD-TV Broadcast over Astra (I can only speak for the germans) comes in PAL 16:9 which is in Pixel 1024x576. The same as a DVD. Since there are more People with a DVD-Player out there than those equipped with Blu-Ray (especially those...
