They're back! And I just finished downloading it ;)

Richard Hammond is welcomed back to the show in graaaand style.

The boys go about taking over a roadworks site, with the goal of doing a week's worth of work in 24hrs. They're sick of roadworks inconveniencing entire communities while the workers sit around listening to Health & Safety lectures, so they're aiming to show the world how it should be done!

Jamie Oliver is the celebrity driver, and he does a damn good job!

The Jaguar XKR is the main car for the day, with the Aston Martin Vantage being its main rival on the show. Frankly, I'd take the Vantage. That thing is hooooorn! But which is faster?

sweeeeeeeeeeettt....... its back....

Aston vs Jag? Don't care which is faster, i'd still be taking the Aston if i had the choice

Absolutely! The Jag looks great from the side, it's really nice lines and such. But the design of the front and the rear is hideous, especially the lights. They look really cheap.

Would definately take the aston, that thing is so beautiful.

Ive been told it's a very emotional episode!

Interestingly, Jeremy used his Stig introduction to hang shit on that Jade Goodie woman from the UK Big Brother house, because of her racial slurring of the Indian housemate! He was quite vicious about it too, I loved it.

I am still yet to watch it, waiting for the 425mb rip instead of the 700mb one... I've only got 10gigs worth of downloads per month... (dam bigpond!)

Side profile of the Jag is very similar to the Aston, most probably due to being designed by the same guy! As mentioned earlir by van, the front and rear just looks cheap. It kind of reminds me of the current BMW 3 series (sedan), the rear end just looks tacky and cheap.
