So are we gonna see the cut versions in the other parts asin if we wont have the full telecast will we have it in parts?? coz i soo dont wanna miss the topgear news!
They're only gonna show the important bits of the episode. TG news, star in a reasonably priced car etc wont be shown.

It makes sense downloading these epis from the net. We usually assign diff epis to diff people and then share them with each other, this saves us a lot of download time.

AS far as i know, only the plar special was telecasted in HD, all the rest were in 480p

I would suggest you watch season7, episode3, ferrari 430, gt40 and zonda being driven to that huge bridge

and the next episode is gonna be the african episode !!!!

A friend has downloaded the episode and even though it might have been telecasted in 720P, the downloaded version was decoded to 480p.

I'm yet to find a propper HD vid on the net except for a list of Imax samples and movie trailers.

Looking at the beating the cars took in the in that African episode makes me think how much much excessive pampering we do for our cars ...
How the hell did those 60, and 80's cars last so long... if someone went and changed that lancia's alternator and battery etc it would have gone on and on....
Hammonds tiny car was also impressive...

Well, Don't take TopGear so seriously, a million things happen in the background which you aren't shown

Either way, yeah the cars did last pretty long!
