Like it or hate it?

I'm feeling a bit indifferent.

Didn't really learn much that hasn't been learnt from here.  :p

Maybe rename this site AussieTopGear.   :D




It felt a little weird watching it, hard to explain.   :scratchchin:

Yeah, it felt like watching something from a parallel universe or the bizarro world. 

I think they should have tried to differentiate it a little from the UK version.  Anyway, I'm just glad to have an Aussie car show on the airwaves, so it's okay by me.  If we didn't have the UK show to compare it to (and it was an original idea), we'd all probably think it was pretty good.

Thinking right back to the start, I freaked when they launched the RAV4 off the sand dune.  That's just plain stupid and irresponsible.

It needed a special disclaimer like "only complete dickheads drive this way on sand".

Did you see the damage to the front afterwards?  They clearly didn't drive it straight to the snow like that.

can understand the weird to watch bit, but hey it was miles better than any other car show australia has ever had. I think they'll get better as they go along

I think he had Farnham's wig on  :eek:

Other than the brief appearance of the Elise SC it was poop.

It was pretty much exactly the same as the UK version - Set, the way the storys were filmed, even the formet of some of the jokes. With 3 Aussie(well you know what I mean) jokers presenting it.

But it's good to have an Aussie Car show, and next week it's Holden Vs Ford!!!!!!!    :hyper:

 :rolleyes:    :rolleyes:    :rolleyes:
