I was laying in bed watching Wheelers & Dealers and saw the ad about the Fifth Gear coming up with the BRZ. I ended up dozing off and when I woke up again shortly after the show started, the BRZ segment was already over. LOL

As much as we moan about the BBC license fee in the UK at least if Top Gear did a segment such as this there would be 3 or 4 outside broadcast cameras to catch the action from the roadside.

"...c'mon stir it up subie..." I got a good laugh for that...it did look like he was having a good time driving the car which is the reason we all bought them isn't it?! Plus he slammed it around and it didn't fall apart...let's see Genesis coupe do that...

I can never understand the complaints of "Needs more power". 200hp might not be enough for those who've driven things with more power, but on twisty backroads? Plenty of enough power.

Most car reviewers on these shows where the FT86 is good enough to actually be on, are comparing it to other sports cars that cost much more... I'm sure if they were reviewing the other FT86 competitors in same price range "more power" wouldn't be the only thing they could complain about.

Not really much of a review. Of all the race circuits that they could have used for this car, this is probably the worst besides LeMans. This car is about a tight circuit and the Isle of Man is a speed course albiet with some nice twists here and there, but it has lots of long straights with slight turns. Put this car on motorsports club track, SCCA course, or autocross and it shines. But to put it on a course that requires HP, and call it out for lack of high speed power is not very realistic to the true nature of the car.

That said, it was a good episode overall, and I like Fifth Gear.

My girl was disappointed that they didn't show more. The episode summary on our guide made it seem like it was a huge segment.

I still watched it since she recorded it.

This is quite old, as I recall. He drives slowly, as well. The camera truck goes faster than he does.
