You can download them from the Finalgear website. They have all the seasons there along with the descriptions. You can also get some HD 720p versions if they are still available.

It could be an exact opposite of the US flydrive.

I hope the conversation doesn't end with 'If you want a faster safer transport, buy a table' as happened with our poor Reva.

The local music store I tried at did not have any VCD / DVD of top gear.. seems it is not easily available. The shop is going to try to get it , let's see.

There are downloads available at Limewire, but very few & far between..

Ricky - I have complete season 1-10 of Top Gear. I told this to a DVD guy in Plaika & he made me an offer to sell a copy to him so he could make DVD's out of it for sale! But I was too lazy to do it!!

Point of the story being, you won't get it in shops, forget it! Torrents is indeed the word.

If you are a true Top gear/Clarkson fan, Ask Varun (micheal Schumi) for his collection. He has a MINDBLOWING collection. It includes- All of Clarksons movies and Meet the neighbours and Motorworld too.

By the way, in case some of guys haven't heard it yet, some public safety activist has asked BBC to fire Jezza since he admitted to driving at 186 mph on public roads in the Bugatti Veyron.

Actually Top Gear is not what it used to be. The TV programme that is. Over the recent years,its become like a domain for Jeremy Clarkson. Where were Tiff Needles, Viki Butler Henderson and Qwentin Willson?
As long as Jeremy was a part of the gang, his wit and humour were tolerable, not when they decided to make the entire programme on him. He gets too dry after a while.
I hope they make it as slick as the plder seasons. The newer ones with the moments in the studio with a live audience was quite boring I thought. Anyways I will still watch it.

The Tiffs and the VBHs(I hate her stupid squeels) went and started fifth gear when old top gear fell out. As a car program, I rate Fifth gear higher than Top gear. Now they have Plato, Tom Ford(also writes for Top gear magazine) and johny smith. Although, I miss jon bentley's segments, think he is now part of the production team for fifth gear.

They had this lovejoy dude for a series in between who dint know jack about cars, good thing they axed him, I want to see VBH go as well.

well back to TopGear /*SPOILER ALERT*/

The upcoming season will have one of their famous (Scripted) races between a car and some form of public transport, only this time in Japan against the bullet train, and the car is 99% the Nissan GTR.

Gogi, Viki is a right roay pain to watch. And some may rate FG higher that TG but in all practicality, If you listen to TG closely, you will see that they give real advise which FG doesnt.

*goes back to watchin TG S10 for the millionth time..*
