But there are new episodes being broadcast weekly (right now) in Briton. They just showed episode 6 of season 13 IIRC on Sunday there.

BBC America is worthless. There are 13 seasons and they typically show the previous season over and over. If they are going to show repeats, they should at least mix it up a little. When they finally do show new episodes it's several months after they originally aired in the UK and I believe they are edited.

Final gear is the only way to go. Not only do they have Top Gear a few hours after airing, they also have Fifth Gear and some of the BBC specials that the Top Gear guys do.

It doesn't matter of taste. I really like some of the hosts of Fifth Gear such as Tiff Needell.

and don't forget Top Gear Russia, it's quite crap though. They are all copies of the great show itself. Fifth Gear is "geared" more towards being factual, they test more common cars, while Top Gear is just pure action.

Re: (miha11)

Fifth Gear always starts out with a 2 car shoot out, followed by reviewing something lame, than they do something funny or action packed. Personally I like Top Gear UK the best, followed by Fifth Gear, Followed by TG Germany, Followed by TP AU.

Top Gear Germany.

it is called D-Motor....

and you have more time than God, you should check out Team Schrick, (a 'reality' show by one of the D-motor hosts, where he uses his inheritance to buy a used street car (Aston Martin) and modify it to compete in a 24 hr race with factory teams from Porsche and Mercedes)

While I do recommend finalgear and their torrents, you can get the new episodes even faster off usenet. They're typically posted within 1 hour of the end of the show airing in England, and a decent usenet account will let you download the episode in 5-10 minutes.

BBC America shows us Top Gear Season 12, In America we are behind one season for some reason... its dumb I think

Fifth Gear was originally Top Gear until it was canceled after first season. Fifth Gear is an ok show, I find it sometimes boring.

Maybe I'll watch a few episodes and see what I think... But, that's the nice thing about Top Gear: you don't even have to like (or know anything about) cars to be able to enjoy it
