    For those of you who download torrent files of the latest Brit car shows (especially Top Gear), THIS is THE BEST!!!
    A surprise guest for "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" is none other than the ULTIMATE gear-head Jay Leno...then, closing out w/ the new AM Vantage V12 is just incredible!
    For those of you that wait a year for Top Gear on Discovery...QUIT WAITING!!! Download by going to "finalgear.com"... once you have downloaded "vuse.com" (all safe downloads), and view the BEST (IMO) car show of ALL car shows. EVERY Top Gear is like a film makers wet dream (I used to be one), but this episode is one for the books!!! JUST EPIC!!!

    Yeah I usually wait a year to watch the poorly edited/spliced versions on BBC America with 20 minutes of commercials.

    This season has been one of the best.

    The site owner gave the BBC the finger and began putting the episodes back up. Good thing too, I tried downloading an episode from final gear and my computer got infected.

    Damn. Just finished watching the last segment of TG.

    Probably their finest production ever.

    It was a great episode but IMO they wasted to much of the show on the VW advert segment?

    Best show in the world by miles. I always watch them faithfully every sunday at 8pm, then download the torrent the next day to watch whenever i'm bored really. It's a shame they're not making as many per season as they use to but thye are all doing different things. The last episode was one of the best in the series..... that ending was so Dramatic... Loved it!! Bring on November.

    I absolutely hate downloading illegally but they don't give us here in the States a choice (BBC America takes six months and the episodes are edited down). If they'd put up full episodes on iTunes or the BBC site the next day for a couple bucks I'd buy every one of them but they don't have the sense to do that yet.

    Same thing with F1 - The SpeedTV or, god forbid, Fox TV coverage is pathetically cheap. It's three guys watching the world satellite feed from a sound booth! I enjoy the BBC F1 coverage and commentary but, yet again, there's no option to pay them what they clearly deserve.

    Thus, Top Gear has created a market for illegal downloads!

    I think everyone downloading should buy their DVDs, buy calendars and buy t-shirts to support them and keep the show alive as long as we possibly can.

    Are you guys serious? This entire season was a real yawner aside from the F1/Veyron episode.

    JC's "drive to an ending" was/is sad and unfortunately inevitable.

    I think the season finale was below average. The VW commercial segment was OK, but nothing special. The Jay Leno interview was good but it was way too short. I actually read the McLaren F1 story here before! The ending was really bad - Clarkson driving an Aston Martin at 30MPH though the English countryside, telling us how this is the end of an era?

    The highlights; Bugatti V McLaren, Michael Schumacher interview, Murciélago SV review, Jay Leno interview and that's about it.

    I enjoyed the rally segment in Episode 6 with May paired to the model as his navigator as well.

    Clarkson mentioned in episode 7 that they will be back in November, so I'm not concerned about the show being taken off the air.

    There are also lots of possibilities for interesting episodes in the future. Just a few suggestions:

    1. Say there are 8 episodes here could be the cars to test: Ferrari 458, Ferrari 599XX, Chevy Camaro SS (or Z28 if made), Corvette Gran Sport, Dodge Viper Coupe (600hp!), M-B E-class coupe, AM One-77, Maserati Gran Turismo S
    2. Older exotic challenge: perhaps an NSX vs. 348 vs. old ZR1
    3. How about a motorcycle test with Hammond on the Ducati Desmosedici RR?
    4. A comparison of $50k component cars would be neat: Factory Five GTM vs. Ultima vs. ???
    5. Brawn GP should let The Stig loose to see how a 2.4L V8 w/o TC goes on the track.
    6. The new 5.0L Jaguar XKR should have a segment (despite this seasons XFR test). Maybe a race across India?
    7. Stars in a Car candidates could include Valentino Rossi, Micheal Phelps, Susan Boyle, and maybe Clarkson should do one himself.

    I was slightly disappointed with the ending.

    Clarkson may be on to something, but at the end of the day I still wanted to see that Vantage get tortured around the test track.

    The end will inevitably come--but let's go out with donuts and tire smoke, please.
