Yeah, you can find full episodes on streetfire if don't want to BT it.

Personally, I like the show Fifth Gear because I don't compare it to Top Gear. The reason why people compares it to Top Gear is something they tried to be funny which really doesn't work especially with Tiff.

I think Fifth gear should start going the opposite route of Top Gear and do a show more like D Motor, after all they DO have real race car drivers that actually car provide legitimate technical road test rather than simply poke fun of them, which is basically what Top Gear does.

At current format, Fifth Gear is a waste of Tiff, Plato and VBH's talent. I can guarantee you if all they did was to track the new cars at Nordschleife every episode, love will love it.

Just stop trying to a second Top Gear and they should be fine.

They took Lotus 2-11 and KTM X-Bow on a race track, they had a stopwatch in hand and all they did was conduct a perfectly idiotic tests of how quickly you can unload cardboard boxes from passenger seat.
