    Just a heads up.
    The first of the 2 part special starts tonight at 8:30pm for an hour
    part 2 Tomorrow 8pm til 9:05pm
    Bbc2

    Thought I would put 2015 in the topic as we will no doubt have comments about the new season so we don't have multiple top gear threads

    What did everyone think? I personally reckon TG's days are numbered.

      Im only just getting into this program, Ive never really been much of a follower, but the international episodes are all very interesting, Ive been catching up on them on the Dave channel!...lol...I quite like them, but last nites was quite funny how they ruined the finish!!...lol

      I look forward to the next one!

        Im really going off TG of late. but that finish was scary as hell !!! a real bit of drama !

        they need to get back to 75% cars and 25% messing around. not the current 95% messing round and 5 % cars.

          To their credit they did show Argentina/Chile as the beautiful countries they are. Re the ending, the beef was well publicised, but in the edit you can spin things any way you want....

            I will still watch it religiously & in some ways I think it's better than the really old days when there was consumer pieces for things like baby car seats which had no interest for me back then or even now,

            At least now it's all driving but still think it could do with a bit of an overhaul with something aimed at the average Joe, instead of mostly lottery cars.

            Maybe a piece on something to do with
            People who are looking at buying 5,6,7 yr old cars,

            Maybe the odd special about people like us,
            members of car clubs, be it classics,modified,drifters, track,tuners from around the world.
            Maybe clubs from overseas.

            Plus there always on about the engine/exhaust note (back & forth through tunnels then show the stig leathering cars around the track with a silly gimmick of music or a rosetta stone cd playing, drowning out the thing we like to hear.

            Last night just showed you the amount of convoy/back up vehicles they have in tow no doubt carrying most parts for the cars the 3 of them are driving for when mishaps happen..

                      I agree... it cant go on forever (I mean one of them has to die first at some point!) and I can't see a new cast member/whole new cast working in the same way as TG did when it reached its peak in its current format, and good balance of car stuff/messing around, several years ago... I think the last few years it has been mostly about dicking around and a lot of really fake stuff.

                      It'll be interesting to see if a new program comes forward. I really liked the /Drive channel on youtube (before they went for paid subscription), I think if the BBC want to carry on with their long heritage of a motoring based program they should be looking at whats really popular in terms of youtube channels and motoring websites in general and try and build up a show from that as theres tonnes of very different but entertaining/factual/awesome youtube channels about motoring!

                        if Tg had the same amount of tests and real world motoring reporting like 5th gear, but kept the same presenters style as TG currently has, plus the same camera work/effects team then I feel it would be 100 times better. But we know that isnt gonna happen.

                          Heads up, just about to start.
                          Hope it's better this week than last week's ambulance garbage.

                            Pretty boring tonight too !!

                            Not really anything that got me going. Even the missus said that after the star in the car bit they should just have shown the nursery scene from "the wolf of wall street" in which the blonde star makes a splendid show of herself !! Much more entertaining than a landy defender.

                              I quite liked the BMW. Still, it was a much better episode this week than last week, that ambulance episode was utter gash.
