Bill,
And of course they found their tame racing driver, The Stog, but that was vetoed for The Ben Collins. Can't wait for the new series.

As the member most recently becoming the owner of a used BMW in Thailand [?] I thought RR might best appreciate this video;



No doubt those who work in the "disposal' departments also reflect as they drive home in their 20 year-old Skoda's.

You won't be able to until December when Amazon opens the market up from 3 countries to the rest of the world. I think they have been bombarded throughout the world for requests for TGT that they have decided to expand to all countries. I know I will be on that list in December..... Just hook the laptop to the TV and stream it through their box. Bad planning really, they knew they had the greatest show on earth, but aimed low. There were hundreds of complaints on both Youtube and the web that they must have known it would happen months ago. Meanwhile Top Gear is dead!

Street legal too, I bet it gives the police a real headache. They have them in Northern Territory like that but just for racing....and rounding up cattle.

I will save my opinion for the opportunity to watch in Ultra HD/Oled/4D/IMAX; but maybe not Smell-O-Vision.

Having glimpsed the first bit of that pirated copy I am suspecting that it has been Americanised .... whether too far only time will tell .... which would be ironic [in a sense that Alanis Morriset might not appreciate] if Matt The Plonk is indeed the new lead presenter of Top Gear©
