What feature would you like to see on Top Gear

Given that a lot of people think top gear is a bit pants at the moment, what feature would you most like to see on it?

Re: What feature would you like to see on Top Gear

I would like to see each member of Girls Aloud (+others) to be trained on a track in a Porche, then take control of the car and do a lap or two with instructor guidance. I would like this to take a good chunk out of the program for my viewing pleasure

So, that's a vote for 5th Gear then?

I think you're right there Gibbo, although I did envisage the 5th Gear option as being the 'other'.

I thought perhaps that was your intention. I think I'd rather watch Songs of Praise than 5th Gear though

Well, one of the options I was thinking about was Sabine and VBH wrestling naked in a pool of Castrol GTX...however, I thought that might be a tad sexist

Re: What feature would you like to see on Top Gear

Well, I think I would like to see Clarkson try to re-enact the bridge attack scene in Mission:Impossible 3. I want to know if it's really feasible to throw a bullet-proof jail-type truck up in the air, using a sideways missile hit, but with the truck still somehow "flying" a straight course, and then landing right in front of Clarkson's GT40, without damaging it. Should be a piece of pie for Top Gear's crew.

Re: What feature would you like to see on Top Gear

I think they should do another one of those races across continents, Maybe from Timisoara in Romania to Aberdeen in Scotland, with James and Hamster using hitch hiking, and jeremy using a Robin Reliant.... that would be entertainment.

Would maybe have to spread it over a full series as it will take them so long, but i'd love to see Jeremy try to talk his way through Romanian customs without getting a full internal done
