  1. Last season had to be the worst they have filmed to date. Fingers crossed for more car reviews/tests other than pure light entertainment…

  2. Fifth gear seem to have improved there show this season. Anyone else know of any good car shows with current detailed reviews/news?

  3. Agreed Nitropro, it was indeed the worst season this far. They were clearly lacking real car reviews, instead of just building a snowplow…

  4. Yeah the Snowplow was the bad and boring bit but the US special and the Middle East special were very good. What I can’t see anymore are some tests and fights between an R8 of some sort against a 911 of some sort. Hope to see more brilliant cars this season.
    Looking forward to it :)

  5. @Nitropro, I know about some german shows that I watch sometimes. ‘Abenteuer auto’ on Kabel eins – it’s boring. ‘Auto motor und sport’ last time I watched it was on DSF, I don’t know if still exists – less boring, but still. ‘D Motor’ reruns on DMAX – something like TopGear with Tim Schrick, Sabine Schmitz and Carsten van Ryssen, more car tests. I like it. Tim and Sabine have new show called ‘Turbo’ on Sport1, but I never watched it. And of course the french tv AB Moteurs, but they speak only french :D Which is a problem for me. I barely understand what they are talking about.

  6. @Nitropro yeah my opinion is pretty the same. This show became quite annoying, e.g. in 2003-2006 I always watched entire episodes, while now only about 10 mins of average review at the beginning and then I can turn off the TV without any regret. Miss those races with trains, planes even they are always scirpted.
