    Thanks for that. I downloaded it and though the file size said it was going to be a 59 Mb file, it only downloaded 18 Mb. It still played it, but stopped at the end of the drag race.

    I didn't know Top Gear was around in 1997. I can't download as I am on poverty pack dial up connection. Who won the drag race? Which car ended up being the best??
    The AWARD WINNING 1998 Blaze Yellow 306 GTi6


    ......and a Series 3 205GTi on the side.

    I was surprised to learn that Top Gear has been around since 1977!

    The download keeps cutting out for me at home as well, so I'm trying again from work now. 12k/sec......ergh.

    Hmmm, no luck for me. 10Mb is best I can get, so I don't get to see how the GTi6 and Bravo HGT went.

    Could always break it into 10Mb chunks and Gmail it ... I just leave all these videos in my extra gmail account, ready to send at a moments notice.

    Key ring ... no issues, help those who help us is my motto !

    Sounds like an idea.

    I have 10Mb chunks, unfortunately it is the same 10Mb chunk.

    Sorry! Haven't checked back here for a little while.

    Here is a fixed working link but it's a little slow. Worth the wait though.

    Guy, so how far into it did you get to since you downloaded 33 meg? My 18 meg just got to the end of the drag race.

    edit: anderoo, thanks, just saw your latest post. Am downloading it now, 18 kb/sec.

    Cool, Let me know how you get on, it should be 59.4 meg.

    If this one works ok for people I've got another clip of clarkson reviewing the 205 GTi I'll upload to the same place.

    I only got about 52meg, can someone perhaps PM me the ultimate conclusion?

    Its clear that Topgear is a lot more entertaining (and a bigger budget) nowadays!
