The UK guys are funny and know their $hit. The US guys are just ordinary dudes that arent even "car" guys. The US version sucks!

The thing is every race or stunt kind of thing they have done, as been a copy of something they did on the BBC. The sad part is they are just no where near as good at doing it.

Jay Leno and a couple of real car guys would make the show much better.

Got the tivo set, thanks for the heads up! I don't watch for the hosts, I like the hardware. The lambos were cool, although they couldn't drive them worth a crap.

I think the only way those two morons could be cast on that show is if they paid to be there or their fathers are the producers. I love cars but that show is unwatchable. So many interesting original things they could have done. Such a wasted oportunity.

He may be the one out of the three that's an actual "car guy", but he has the personality of wallpaper paste.

I've never liked him on any of the car shows he's been on.

I'm with you...Tanner is boring and the US show does a great disservice to the UK version...

The M5 costs nearly triple what a Chrysler Hemi (non-SRT version) costs. Seemed pretty biased and I never watched it again.
X2 - Im with you....I CANT STAND that "if its not British/European its no good"...reminds me of that jack wadd Brit that was on here a few years back "Super Tremoli" or whatever his name was that told us all our Cigs and Fountains were s hit and we should all get some class and buy a Sunseeker!!!!....faaack me

They said the Vette was pretty good...Uhhh yeah!.....its MORE than good and they were surprised the A/C worked well (unlike their cars).....and they have that stupid studio audience hanging on their every word....YOU DONT NEED A STUDIO AUDIENCE ON A CAR SHOW!!!..... Im British as h ell and I cant stand it.
