Not sure but they did another review of the car a few weeks ago, not at Isle of Man.

I saw the episode where they did a basic review. "Needs more power.". Then they went on to say "I do believe that was a power slide!".

Later in the episode they're driving the new M3 GTR (or something - had a cage instead of rear seat). Comment was "needs more power to really get the back end out". Just how much power do these guys need?!

(ok, it was probably a traction issue and the M3 wasn't exactly wearing skinny Primacy tires...)

i just saw the commercial for this. i initially thought this was a repost for the episode where they already covered this car, but there is indeed a new episode on Weds where Tiff takes it around the Isle of Mann. (part of the commercial clip has a quote of him saying he is going 170mph!)
on a side note, i have been watching these new 5th gear episodes and.. am i the only one that is sick and tired of them constantly judging cars by doing powerslides/drifting? looks cool and all but it got old a while ago. hold some grip and give me some lap times!

I'm guessing he's saying kph? Top speed aero limited to 146 or so I think.

With Top Gear taking too long of a break (heck, even the US series!), I've been trying to watch 5th Gear. I'm not getting in to it. It's not bad like that Car Show with Adam what's his face. But it's a bit boring? Jeremy power slides cars around with a huge grin on his face and proves nothing. 5th Gear tries it, and they turn it into a nerdy science thing instead. They just strip some of the fun out of it somehow. I can't explain.

And a 0-60 drag race with 450-500+ hp cars? It's all launch. They need to do 1/4 mile or 1/2 mile to show which car really has legs instead of which can get out of the hole the best.

turns out he was saying 170mph but the commercial was very misleading. he was actually talking about how fast the bikes fly down the course but they edited out everything but "170mph!"

video was kind of "meh". nothing really new and he manages to complain about the lack of power a few times.

yes, this is episode is almost 3 weeks old. The first review was on an 86 by Jason about a month ago. A few weeks after that the BRZ was on the Isle Of Man. It was very short lived though. Less than 3 minutes of "review" time if you want to call it that.

I think Top Gear UK will honor the BRZ86 better with a full section, meaning a 10 minute review

:happy0180: to hoping it gets reviewed in the month of January.

That was a very good episode. Although Tiff didn't talk much about the BRZ dynamically, the John McGuiness TT piece and Twizzy piece were good.

Fifth Gear TONIGHT

Hey guys, @FRES86 just texted me that tonight's episode of Fifth Gear will feature the Subaru BRZ. It's on at 10pm on Velocity. I don't have cable, haha... so I can't watch it, but maybe some of you can. That is in 40 minutes on the west coast!

I was very disappointed as well. The focus was less on the BRZ and more on the experience of racing around the Isle of Man. The track is very cool and definitely would be a once in a lifetime thing but when you are watching and expecting more emphasis on the car you will be let down.

So I'd say it isn't worth the time to download DarrenDriven.

Agree with other posts. Emphasis was not on the car itself. Same theme though .... car just needs a little more power according to the driver.
