What? No one does in the US. BBC America is 2 seasons behind, or now they might be caught up but no one gets brand new episodes as soon as they air.

Go to finalgear.com and download it.

Seriously, how is this still an issue. For 5 seasons we have been pointing people to this site, and you are not a new member.

Ahh....I thought it was just my carrier. I don't think I had clicked into any of the other Top Gear threads so this is news to me. Thanks!

No problem. Sorry if I sound frustrated, but I think it is listed on the first page of this thread, and mentioned through out. Hell, in the last two pages I know I listed it again.

It is always the same every season. People say "streaming link?" the someone says "streetfire" and others ask for torrent links...

If you go to finalgear.com, they link the video in three quality levels every time it is released, and it is available an hour after it airs.

Pretty sure when the Stig does his lap in the Pagani, the front spoiler slams into the ground under braking coming into Hammerhead, and you can see glowing rotors. Straight

It's interesting how the slower, more controlled and less exciting test laps are usually the fastest. Watching the Paganini go around, I knew it was going to be fast, but not the new #1 time. I was impressed. Same with the Bentley. The P-45 bit was entertaining as well! Great first episode, glade they're back!

Street tires have their most traction (and therefore can accelerate a car around a corner best) at probably 3-7% slip, which isn't much. In most situations, drifting is slow.

My Girlfriend even said the Pagani looked slow.
As they have always said on Top Gear the slower it looks, the faster it really is.

Is there a new Golf R in Europe yet? I don't think they'll drive the US spec one... to them it's old news.
