I know this program has already run in the UK on the normal BBC channel, however for us outside the UK it is the first time it will be broadcasted.... :)
From what I read here and there, the RS6 get the preference ?

It's a good show.. very close between the AMG E55 and the RS6.. I won't spoil it for you...

This car is a stairway to heaven, a Bohemian rhapsody....
Does it get better than that?

Seems to me that Clarkson was pretty impressed by the RS6, and that he chose it over the E55 surprised me a bit, considering he owns an SL55... Anyway; the RS6 sound is amazing!
And the "Lada by Lotus" was hilarious :hihi:

I have a MPEG2 file captured directly from the stream from a digital cablereceiver with that testdrive.:roll:
It's about 113MB in size.
(Or about 200MB unedited with the AMG E55 drive included)
If anyone can host the file(s), I'll be happy to upload it there.

I would love to see that video:) I have a blue Avant coming in June:D and I cant wait much longer. I cant find it anywhere else on the web. Can you tell me where to get it from. I will rip it into several different sizes and host it myself, until my ISP gets :argue: mad about the bandwidth.

We can host it too. Never got in contact with Magnus though...

I've downloaded the TopGear movie now.
It's quite good I must say.
Only one problem...Jeremy talks with about 75% of the normal speed. Something like Jabba the Hut.
Will try to solve that before it's put online... :eye:
