    As soon as he said a Rover and a special edition, i thought the '200 BRM' straight away

    Taxi drivers are wankers. I had my 530 BMW 6 MONTHS from new and a twat in a private hire smacked into me, coming out of a give way cross road. I was going straight, then he had the audacity to say I was going to fast, prick. Copper pulled up and told him he was an idiot and went through a give way. The car got repaired, but was never the same after 🤬🤬🤬🤬

    Taxi drivers are the worst, especially when they crash into you and hundreds of their mates spill out of the woodwork to confront you, then when you finally get their details and your insurance sort everything out, they then can't recover costs from them, so you then have to go through even more hassle for something that wasn't your fault. 100% Taxi drivers are worse than delivery drivers.

    As soon as he gave a hint for the special edition I immediately said BRM, literally out loud at work and was working along to the absolute build up and getting angsty about absolutely no guesses of a "British 60's racing team" (as there are more than one that all became sucessful and legendary becoming very well known in the racing world)

    I know I’m late to this, but I think for the car advice to that 18yo a 205 CTI would be pretty nice. It’s got a hefty 1.9l for a good 120hp, it’s ridiculously light and is a convertible, o and was designed by Pininfarina. It shares many of the GTI model parts so you could modify it to fit the bigger 15’ alloy rims and coilovers. It’s the car that I would get if there where any left in my country.

    Mandarin is a language based on tones, so what Alex said in the introduction had zero meaning. Tones are rising, flat, and falling. If you pick the wrong tone as you speak it’s nonsensical and unintelligible. Good try though 👍🏻.

    If you’ve owned a bmw 3 series and other related cars you would absolutely leave your car in gear because their handbrake design was the same from the e30 to at least the e92 and is basically useless

    All you need to do is let the car settle on the handbrake before putting it back in gear/letting off the clutch when in gear. It's only a backup for a handbrake failure. As for starting again, I always wobble the gearstick before starting to make sure it's in neutral. I also press the clutch but my car needs that in order to start, although I still push the clutch on tractors that don't need it. I don't know when I started pushing the clutch before starting the engine, it was definitely before I started driving a car, or if it's always been my go to thing as I wobble the gearstick, removing any load from the engine before doing so for the tractors that don't have any brake to hold them.

    I love these podcasts and the channel but the whole "snowflake" attitude annoys me. The term "snowflake" is used by those who have not endured mental/physical abuse. It needs to be stamped out. The channel never address these issues as it seems to be hosted by a lot of alpha males/alpha following males (except Ethan & Jack) for the sake of a pay day. Please break the mould and be better.

    4:31 about the taxi condition thing my father worked for heetche (similer to Uber) in Belgium the cars that are used have to have an mot every 6 months even if the car is brand new and the cars arent allowed to be more then 7 years old. He is a great driver just got some occasional speeding tickets. And about the Belgian drivers yes alot of theme are just mad

    Taxi drivers are the scum of the roads. The only time I’ve seen them driving at or below the limit is when they have a fare on board. Aggressive, often on the phone, bullying out of junctions or pushing in, not indicating.

    Totally agree on new cars being shiiiiiiite. I've had 3 new ones in my past but I'll never do it again. The first 2-3 years depreciation is totally not worth the reduction in repair expenses. I've been buying 2-3 year old cars now for over a decade now, typically at 50% of their new price, and will continue to do so. They usually come with a 2 year manufacturer warranty if you're buying them from a main dealer. They're usually lease trade-ins and are fully serviced on time. I sell them when the warranty runs out and move onto the next one.
