    I dont get Ethan's "what have you been up to?". I'm from the states so I'm not familiar with the motorways there but, if he's in the exit slip lane then why is he undertaking? Is he in the exit slip lane but not exiting?

    Mid chase and running out of options to stop the car thieves, as a last ditch attempt bring the pursuit to an end, the pilot of the chopper turns to the person in the back "its time" he says "time for what" replies the passenger, "We have no other choice" with a stern expression on his face "drop the Bag 'o' Dogs" !!

    My main gripe with people bitching about EVs is it ALWAYS comes back to noise. You can be like "this car is faster than yours, smoother, cheaper to run, better for the environment, carries more luggage, and is better in every way" And they're like " yeah, but it doesn't make any noise. I need engine noise" Really?

    what grinds my gears is EV can't drive from Brisbane to Sydney now here's the thing you guys live in the UK everything is small and close together in Australia nothings close together and you wont be able to drive between major cities on one charge and you probably couldn't get to Perth or Darwin in an EV as public charge stations aren't even that common on the east coast of the Australia there wont be any in the middle of no where. On that note of a Porsche derived EV... yeah no you wont they're spending the next 7-8 years developing 3D printed pistons... yeah they will be out of business in 2030

    Ethan it sounds like you weren't undertaking here, you were in the exit slip lane, therefore it is the other guys responsibility to check the lane he wants (yours) is clear before entering it. It's just that people don't expect to be passed that side, and so don't check that side properly

    "Would you want the car back (undamaged)?....No" How does that make ANY sense. If you don't get your (stolen) car back (undamaged), you'll have to make a claim on your insurance and then get ready come renewal time for some serious financial butt hurt. I get that emotionally you'd know someone else had thrashed it but I'd take that over a total loss claim on my insurance history ANY day of the week!

    My '92 Cruiser was Farm Truck cause it came from a Farm and was old and farm-like. Mates: Hilux cause he had a shammy in he glovebox to clean it after every 18 rain drops. '88 Pajero was 'Ol Foss' cause it was a fossil. '96 Pajero was 'Clackerjabber' cause it made... noises. '03 105 series was 'White Knight' cause he got it while living away from the rest of us and he chose his own "cool" sounding name which is verboten but he got a sticker so it kinda stuck. '96 80 series was 'Shepherd' cause we made him go first to guide us through creek crossings.

    I love this show - one of my weekly highlights 😊 But Alex - stop picking on the other guys and stomping your authority on them! It’s not an attractive personality trait, and you’re doing it more every week. Nuff said - keep up the great work 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
