    I did post this in the General Automotive Section, but not sure if anyone saw it or not.

    Its a new series and its on Discovery channel now on Sky rather than channel 5 on Mondays and back to being an hour long.

    This weeks episode i thought was really good.

    Was a good bit that they did on performance on a clio sport, showing which mod was best, bluefin remap, ,miltek exhaust or tyres.....

    The result was the car ran quickest with the tyres alone.

    Anyway, if you get a chance to watch it, check it out :)

    Wonder why ch5 ditched it. Not enough car shows these days given how many people love cars.

    No, just watch Dave re-runs of UK TG, and the odd bit of Wheeler Dealers

    Will have to check it to see how bad it is!

    Not sure why Channel 5 ditched it, Disco still has the same sponsor (Admiral), so dont think it was down to funding.

    I thought it was a very good opening episode and look forward to further episodes.

    As for the TG from the U S of A, proper pile of 'garbage'!! ;)

    i quite liked fifth gear originally, more serious and better consumer info than top gear. i DID love topgear for the comedy, banter, and the car reviews, however i think they've gone too far with some things and its gone way off what a car show is.
    as for topgearUSA, ohhhhhh *** dear
