Yes, Sweet! But I thought this was one of the worst episodes of Top Gear ever! I've watched every (full) episode since 2003. Hopefully there's better stuff to come. Thought I was watching 5th gear there for a second.

Definitely. The roadworks thing was a real snoozer. On the plus side, my wife saw the AMV8 and decided that we should get one. Can't argue with that kind of success.

Does your wife have a single sister! (not that I could afford a Vantage)

They didn't need to put anything good in that episodes since the ratings would be there for the crash footage. At least, I hope that's why the episode was weak.

A bigger problem is that all three sounded overly scripted, like a bad Emmy award presentation.

Even the worst Top Gear is better than the best Fifth Gear with that moronic twerp who knows nothing about cars.

06 Laser Blue Elise: Touring, Sport, Rear brace, SS brake lines, seamless clam, stupid DRLs disabled.
04 Blue Subaru STi

Normal for this episode to be a snoozer...they have been off for a while and need some time to get back to their old self. One would hope

Yes, i know, my comment above was out of line.... you are right. I just remembered how much I hate that Vicki woman, the fat guy and the albino guy who always does the "how many miles per gallon" tests

I do to, actually, at least in small doses. The one I find most annoying, in a way, is Tiff Nedell (his speaking style kind of grates).

You'll need a tool to convert Xvid encoded video to MPEG-4. There seem to be several options that I found with Google, but I have no specific experience with any of them.

Try Videora.

I don't have an iPod myself, but it looks like exactly what you need.

I think you're looking at the wrong torrent. I see 220 seeders and 1300 peers.

Pretty sure it's the right one. Says it was updated four hours ago, so the user count doesn't mean much.


I now see 236/1574.
