    Default Evo X vs STi 5th Gear TV UK

    Great video, always love the British review. The last drift pass was a bit close, haha!

    ...which is why 5th Gear > Top Gear

    -For the information on cars that we really care about (lol).

    The video makes me want a STI now.

    EBDC saved Tiff's would-have-been spin in the grass, and 2 EBDC units in the STI and EVO prevented that crash

    Ya, looks neutral (when off-throttle, in the rain). One of Laurie's friends just got a brand new STi..............


    That last "almost-crash".....

    The Tiff v. Jason segments are the main reason I watch 5th gear anymore. Especially when they are in the car together and you get prize comments such as "did you not like that apex?"

    That would be Ray's new STI.

    He let me drive it around on the street...I took a couple aggressive corners and it seemed a little understeery to me...

    No, that would be our friend Phil's new STI. So Ray got one?

    Yea, they are a bit pushy on dry pavement at 30mph....

    Yup Ray just got the new STI and Jen got the new Civic SI. They refuse to track them though...so the couple (ENGAGED) still stick to their track-only cars, their old Integra and Civic Si.

    I was pushing at least 40mph!
