Really?? I thought the 2nd one was way better. The first episode just seemed very 'staged'. Beautiful roads, loverly cars, but getting lost and waking up under a dam? and May crashing his car?
This one was far more entertaining too. Once everyones finished watching it, ill post a few links to the reviews.

The second episode was truly a let down after the first. R8 V10 made it interesting else the episode was a waste. They are funny alright but we need Cars also. Waiting for the Third now.

How many weeks in this season?? They did not show a Season preview in the first episode for a change this time.

I downloaded 1st episode from youtube at around 320 Mbs. Quality is ok.
Hope it gets better with every episode.

It was just a plane jane " How hard can it be " episode. Nothing spectacular.

I have to say that the R8 V10 looked amazing. Im am a big fan of the R8. The alloys are absolute drool stuff.

Frankly the ZR1 doesnt do the trick for me.

if the 1.5 gb 720p version wasn't clear enough there is a 1080 p 4.5 GB version available now! . People with large bandwidths and huge plasmas/lcds,your prayers have been answered!
