    The ATS needs to be tested on the TG show. The ATS-V cant come soon enough.

    Actually, it's not really fair to say the show is boring. Far from it. I just find their sanctimonious attitudes very off-putting. The Stig, no matter how good he can drive, is bad comedy. We have really bad TV here in the US. But compared with British TV, the worst shows here are pure art by comparison.

    It greatly troubles me how much stock my fellow enthusiasts put in the opinions and commentary of the tragic comedy that is Top Gear.

    Whether or not TG is a legitimate source that can unbiasly review cars is irrelevent. The show reaches millions of people through conventional and non conventional means. Their opinion matters greatly.

    Chrysler thought it mattered enough to not lend them a challenger when they came over for the America special.
    Mcclaren thought it mattered enough that they developed and tested the MP4-12C on the top gear track.

    The Times and Nissan thought it mattered enough to plaster them about a certain episode about their electric car, and need I explain the Tesla incident?

    They're constantly getting in legal or defamation trouble with what they say on this 'entertainment' show.

    You don't have to take their show as a source of good information to compare cars. You just have to accept that they have the largest automotive audience in the world and it's a big deal when they praise a car or destroy it in an episode.

    TG was the 1st car show I know of to put an emphasis on engaging videography. Even with the criticism they levied on the 1st gen V, I know people who were blown away on how good it looked cruising around the track. Life is too short to watch boring TV, especially boring car shows. TG makes me angry and happy... Autoweek, by comparison, makes me sleepy...
