I'm two minutes in, already impressed. Fucking guy just walks out behind a single cop, gets into his Aston and away he goes. Much cooler than all the nonsense around the US President.

I like the part where they're just randomly in India with their cars. No simplification for TV there.

Keep that for all your Top Gear needs. Better yet, sign up for the forums: they have direct d/l options there, which is faster and more secure than the "share" options.

PMing you in a second with one of those direct d/l links.

Watched it... Jezza, Slow and Hamster have the best chemistry on TV. It is like watching Julliard trained actors perform on broadway every episode. They are just artists at being funny, smarmy asses.

Great episode. I can't I felt really bad for Hammond's MINI, because it looked like from the begining that was a car he wanted to take back with him. It was a gorgeous one too. I would drive one.

Ugh. That douchebag Will.I.Am was the SIARPC.

Other than that, pretty solid episode.

What, is nobody watching this season? Pretty good ep last night.

Now, I think their timeline is a bit off on Chinese car manufacturing. VW was producing Jetta/Passats in China by around '97, though they were for the local market and under a separate model name. You'd see Passats with the Passat badge and they'd be right next to a Chinese produced (at an official VW factory- the copycat cars came later) VW named something or the other. The Passat-badged car would cost 10X as much and be much more prestigious, of course.

I've actually been in taxis that were those 3-wheeled bike/cars. While I don't doubt that particular unit was produced in '04 or whatever, that was the tail end of their production. There were fucking thousands of them on the streets in '97.

During one of the sped up traffic sequences watch for this one asshole in a little cart of a car heading directly into oncoming traffic.

I wonder how much of that direction was actually Clarkson's. It was rather enjoyable.
