The original "Top Gear" is brilliant -- remaking it is just plain stupid.

It will never work.
The reason TOP gear UK is great is that its brutally honet. Are they going to review cars from the big sponsors like GM,Dodge and Ford....doubt it. as an example they reviewed the Chrysler crossfire and said it5 looked like a dog taking a dump

Why do we have to make a copy of Top Gear? I mean you can't copy The Stig and it will just be a half-assed copy of the original show. I smell a flop and hope it does, besides all it will be is a bunch of american cars because they'll receive huge endorsements from them.

TOPGREAR AUSTRALIA: MORE EXCRUCIATING THAN WATCHING YOUR GRANDMOTHER MASTURBATING!!!
Shame on you Topgrear UK for WHORING the TG brand and pushing this pathetic $CAM!! Brown lookes like a B Grade Porn Star, Pizzati is a whining Ferrit and the presence of Cox just made me angry at the fellow that invented Seat-Belts! Neither of which could find a camera if it were amply coated with Butter and vigorously Inserted into the Southern End of their Elementary Passage!!
As far as substitutions go, it left me reflecting, no longing for the old Rat for Chicken KFC myth. So, next time I'm tempted to for a little of the Finger Lickin' Good-Stuff, I would gladly prefer to find them stuffing my Family Bucket with Liberally-Spiced-Rodent, than ever be exposed to another millisecond of TopGear Australia!!

Just saw your report on the new Ford Focus.. You need to drive the STEEDA version with G-Track. It a Ford Authorized upgrader, Much like Shelby.. How about Zero to 60 4.4 sec top speed 178 MPH and beyond fun to drive if your into itty bitty cars like you guys on the other side of the pond.

BBC Top Gear is great. This already sounds like it will suck. Carolla will be terrible. Agree they will not be funney or brutally honest.

Keep BBC Top Gear!!!

Or let them pick the hosts.
