    Fifth Gear is far better IMO!

    Top gear has a huge budget, paid for by the TV license payer and unfortunately the whole thing is blatantly scripted and staged for entertainment value, when it could be so much better.

    Fifth Gear is like what Top Gear was like a few years ago before Richard Hammond and James May joined, making it nothing more than a bit of far-fetched fun, with outcomes you don't really care about. Why would I care which unknown celebrity goes faster around a track on a dry or wet day? Or where the presenters think each car should be on a cool wall? I have to say pretty much the only thing I still like about Top Gear is Jeremy Clarkson and his witty non-PC humour, he still makes the show watchable, although not unmissable.

    Whereas Fifth Gear still actually reviews cars in all the price brackets, therefore appealing to a wider audience and they give the cars in their respective target areas, reasonable and realistic tests. For example off road tests for 4x4's, agility tests for city cars and comfort tests for executive cars. Also, they've got the stunning Vicky Butler-Henderson, what more can a guy want on a motor show?

    You say it appeals to wider audiences but im pretty sure out of the two, Top Gear has the higher ratings, on the basis that its more the entertaing show.
