    [27x02] Jun 23, 2019 Electric Car Special

    To be fair, the question they asked at the top of the show was 'can you build your own EV'. To which the answer was 'no'. The Leaf was an odd choice admittedly, but the fact it only had a range of 30-odd miles after 8 years, no matter how badly the previous owner looked after it, would put me...

    [03x14] April 11, 2019 - Funeral for a Ford

    Wow. That ending was something special. Really special.

    As most of the stuff on this episode have been done before it's hard not to draw comparisons to the CHM episodes. The endurance race at the end didn't have you on the edge of your seat willing the car on like the biofuel BMW, but having said that, it was still entertaining all the way through...

    [21x01] February 2nd, 2014

    Yep! Somewhat ironic that they mentioned it in this episode, as last month I was talking to a mechanic about the exact same thing. There happened to be a Nova in the workshop and we tried it. A similar trick can also be used on a Mk5 Astra, although using another interior switch to bypass the...

    Best Episode of TG Yet?

    Not sure what series/episode it is but one of the few I could watch again and again is the one they bought cars at an auction and did the road rally in [im tempted to say but could be wrong] Spain..? It's been a while since I last saw it...

    Guests you'd like to see in Series 21

    I think Kiefer Sutherland would be awesomely entertaining.....

    [19x07] March 10th, 2013 [Africa Special, Part 2]

    I wonder if they drowned the Scorpio because it broke down or suffered a big mechanical failure and was unrepairable, so they needed a convenient way of ditching it...

    New Remakes of Old Top Gear

    Think we've seen a modern take on this once or twice... :)

    Top Gear Pre-New-Franchise Episodes

    AHA!! I don't post that much, but here is something I think I can actually help with!! :D:D Theres a couple of YouTube channels I'm subbed too that put a lot of old TG vids up, from the late 80s till late 90s.... They aren't full episodes, just random reviews, but still entertaining...

    I really enjoyed this episode. So what if it was a copy of the BL challenge from TGUK. It had an American twist to it. I'm sure that the 'never happy brigade' would have complained if it was different... 'Why not make it like the BL car challenge'... etc. My only complaint is the way the studio...

    TGA is garbage

    I don't know them either, and there didn't seem to be much chemistry... yet. But it was still quite enjoyable. It's the first episode remember, at least give it a chance.

    TG Challenge Cars

    Hi y'all, Just a quickie that I don't think has been asked before - tried searching but can't think of any more search terms! But when the trio choose their cars for the challenges, how do they actually go about it? I mean, obviously they don't go round to a private sellers house to...

    [14x07] January 3rd, 2010

    It could have been filmed by one of the BBC news crews that are based around the world whilst he was there for Top Gear Live... Just been watching the BBC News channel and a news reporter from somewhere in the USA looked like she was stood infront of a green screen. Only giveaway was that she...

    [14x06] December 27th, 2009 [South America Special]

    It could just be as simple as the driver was driving somewhere, got to his destination, turned round and was coming back when he encountered Clarkson. I as well as many other people think it was genuine. Yeah they probably filmed the close up shots and the wheel on the edge shots later, but I...

    [14x06] December 27th, 2009 [South America Special]

    Only just noticed, not sure if it's been mentioned already, done a quick search and couldn't find anything... But at the beginning whilst they are waiting for their cars to arrive on the raft and Clarkson is playing [as per James comment] 'ethnic tunes', he's actually playing his iPhone...
