Randy Pobst was one of their pro drivers and he said it was all about the tires - given his credentials I'll take his word for it.

I doubt the M3 suspension would need to be retuned to accommodate the M3 OEM PSCs and I bet they'll reduce lap times by at least two seconds.

I just watched it.. glad it was at the start, so I could stop watching quickly. Both hosts suck. They display a 0-60 @3.9 seconds for m3, 0-60 @ 4.0 seconds for 302, then say the 302 out accelerates the m3. I have no doubt the 302 probably is faster in a straight line, but their stats said one thing, their mouths another.. what a joke of a show.

Carolla should stick to driving his 200hp datsuns. This is the second time he's spun a car out coming out of a corner on this show.If anything he should have been driving the M3 in MDM mode,what a tool

How fucking hard is it to to operate a paddle? Good thing it wasn't a manual or he would have ended up turning the radio on and pulling the e-brake.

I've been watching the show all season. It hasn't been great but I've tried to keep positive in hopes that it would get better and it would be something to watch during Top Gear's off time. Unfortunately it has not improved and this episode was awful. I can't believe they even showed that segment. They should have cut out the whole M3 piece and just spent more time on the Mustang. Instead they just embarrassed themselves.

As I recall the request for a car was to reshoot a scene, like maybe they couldn't get the same car for the studio segment as was used on track (now we know why :-)

The show had some potential, but losing the basketball player (John?) and cutting it to a half hour killed the chemistry of the studio segments. They had one terrific show a couple weeks ago, and most of the early shows had some pretty good segments.

I don't think it'll come back, which is sad because everyone on there really did like cars and weren't a bunch of idiots like you see on pimp my ride and the other lifestyle crap on speed.

Even if the Boss is faster, I wouldn't enjoy driving it as much as I do my M3. Enjoy......

it said the 0-60 on the m3 was 3.9 seconds loll. can't even get the numbers right

then on the boss 302 , it said the 0-60 # was 4.0 and then they say the boss 302 is faster to 60. some miscommunication right there...

Agreed, Top Gear (UK) is the only car show worth watching. All others are failed impostors. Nevermind that they actually know what they're talking about, there's a chemistry between Clarkson, Hammond and May that doesn't exist anywhere else.

He hardly has a sense of humour, and looks droopy and sad all of the time. He'd be a horrible Top Gear host.

What an imbecile. Obvious that he couldn't drive when they showed him on the track with his elbow on the damn door rest.

I think Top Gear UK is simply one of the best TV shows ever, in any genre. Concur on the chemistry - they are perfect together.

Top Gear America has gotten 1000x better in the latest episodes. Not as good as Top Gear UK but way better than "The Car Show." If you haven't watched the most recent episodes I urge you to give it another shot.

Interesting that they used two different MR M3's for the segment. He probably crashed the first one and they had to get another. The one he went off track with had a sunroof...the other had a CF roof.
