Default Top Gear: Season 8

Hello Petrolheads.. on May the 7th a new season of Top Gear started with the show having a few changes. Me being a car fanatic and a top gear fan just loved the show.
I Haven't come across anyone who's spoken much about the show on this site so thought i'll post the link for you to see. (Highly Reccomended!!)




This week on shiny new Top Gear, Jeremy takes a drive in the Koenigsegg CCX, one of the most powerful production supercars on the planet.
They all get together to turn a classic people carrier into a truly magnificent convertible. And then complete a series of challenges designed to test the versatility of their new creation.
We also punish Richard for The 5 O'Clock Show, by making him drive a pink Nissan Micra convertible around the town where he does his shopping.

FinalGear is doing a great work by sharing these videos. And all of them are of super high quality. At least how much I've downloaded. Started downloading the latest Episode earlier this afternoon. Will take a long time because of 8kbps download speed.

Finally good to have TG back on air. Downloaded the episode last night with Stig taking the Koenigsegg CCX around the track, and crashing it into the tyrewall!!!!

Can't wait for the upcoming episodes, cos the montage shows a lot of exciting things to come in the next few weeks.

The first episode of the season was pretty good, except for the part the try to make a open-top mpv. The koenigsegg was great. the pink micra was awful. And they have changed the reasonably priced car to a chevrolet optra. waiting for next week.

They have started broadcasting Top Gear in the US this week. You'll have to wait a while before India gets it.
