Oh dammit, if we had known about this earlier, it would've been fun to drive up to Erie and take a look, maybe even have a caravan of BMWs that could end up being caught on camera.

Drat! I love Top Gear! (The BBC one, that is. The US one has been somewhat of a joke in comparison. The only person worth watching is Tanner.)

Tanner isn't worth watching... He's a little prick and I can't even watch the show becasue of him. (My bad on the venting here, the show just irritates me)

I made a mistake on this however, the filming isn't for Top Gear it's for another program Hammond is working on. Sorry about that, my reading comphrension is a bit off today.

Lol, Tanner is pretty cocky, but he's the only one that can drive on the show. (Pretty sure he's American Stig.) The other two can't drive worth a crap, they aren't witty or funny, and there's zero chemistry between the three of them. Overall, the US show is just lacking.

I am not ashamed to admit that I actually like the US Top Gear as well as the BBC one. Last night they had a pretty cool review of the CTS-V. The CTS-V Wagon beat a Ferrari California in a drag race and beat the Merc SLS-SMG around the track! It was also just a tad slower then a Lambo Balboni.

I would have to agree with you I like the show as well. I havnt watched a whole lot of the euro top gear so I dont have much to comare the us version to. But i think its pretty funny and they compare and do bits on a lot of dream cars. Even got the wife to watch with me she thinks it is funny as well
