I thought Top Gear gave the most enhanced report but I now think that DW tv has got something to match Top Gear. DW TV being a German Channel knows what its telling, not that Jeremy Clarkson does not do a good job butits a stiff competetion.

TOP GEAR. The content itself may not be the best but the presentation by JC and others is really good.

BBC Top Gear is my favourite. The presentation by Clarkson and Co. is still the best. I would rate DW Auto und Motor Sport a very close 2nd. Their reports are pretty comprehensive.

Its Topgear for me too because of the presentation, especially in the case of sports cars and no other program can match it. Auto und Motor Sport comes second for the reliable information they give.

I never manage to catch these shows on TV, and I usually end up downloading them. Top Gear I guess takes the cake way too easily, even if we get the shortened 30 mins version. I would personally rate the 5th Gear a very close second, but their budget is probably half of TGs but it makes up with Tiff being a better driver. But since we don't get 5G, I guess it doesn't qualify for consideration. AMS TV guys have some great reviews, and come second for me. Those Indian auto shows just don't cut it. They don't have the same flair as the guys abroad do. I cant stand them for too long, but make for good entertainment when there is nothing better to do on TV.

Top Gear. Not only for the cars but also for the british sense of humour.

DW TV, only for the fact that they give more comprehensive & un-biased view on all cars, and featuring more of the latest cars way before the Top Gear team does. But for pure entertainment value, Top Gear is absolutely the best.

P.S. Jeremy Clarkson is a Biased SOB!!!. (Are abbreviated curses allowed????)

BBC Top Gear is very good show ....
Speed on Discovery is also very good
Extreme Machines is also an excellent program ..

Jeremy Clarkson MotorWorld is also good but its not a regular program ... SAD.

Top Gear, used to watch them from a very long time. Its also fun to watch them. DW Auto And Motor Sport is also great, but I'd still prefer Top Gear.
