5th Gear has already started...2 episodes in. If you enjoy Top Gear you should watch that too. Theres Jason Plato, Tiff Neddel and Vicki Butler Henderson.

Top Gears magazine is out with a season preview in it.

Finally! I'm really looking forward to it. Can't wait to watch the Stig thrash the Mercedes SLS around the TG track. I'm sure the 458 Italia will make an appearance as well.

Oh, this is going to be so mouth-watering!

The Ferrari 458 Italia and the R8 5.2 Spider are reviewed this season not to mention the guys' attempt at making their own motorhomes

The ads are fantastic..

Is it only me or the voice does sound like Clarkson's for about 90% of the time. Good impersonation.
Lets see what the TG team has to say about this.
Will the Morris Marina be replaced by a Hyundai ?

Hyundai's revenge!! Cool stuff, I quite like the ads.

Here's a spoof by Harry and Paul. Regular TG viewers would know this one.

I really like the second video, the "review". But I have a feeling TG is going to make Hyundai very unhappy for this.

Hammondicus then says goodbye in some style to our old Reasonably Priced Car – no towing away to a scrapyard with a pitbull for that machine – and then we christen the new car with some top celebs. Do not miss Louie Spence’s appearance.
Finally, we close the show with a Clarkson epic as he drives a Reliant Robin across Yorkshire. The way I’ve written that last bit, it sounds terribly boring. But just trust me, I think we’re in Peel territory with this one.

EDIT : Clarkson has already taken a dig at the 'slow' Hyundai World Cup Interruptus.

Just finished watching the 1st episode..probably not the best ever, but none the less it was great... except I think the Robin Reliant bit dragged on a bit.

For those who wonder - Louie Spence is dance director at the Pineapple Dance Studios in London. Very dramatical about everything in life.

And finally the new reasonably priced car is..... I'll let everyone watch the episode and find out for themselves... its more fun.
