  • The thing i hate the most about my 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus is that I dont own one.

  • wow pokemon go 👌

  • Civic aerodeck

  • Never heard bikers call themselves the small testicle brigade before but I quite like it, something to do with not crushing them against the fuel tank I assume?

  • **** you @ 53:17

  • @jackwjoy you need an ozone treatment on the Saab

  • There's a reason young drivers/riders are more likely to drive dangerously. At that young age you don't have an accurate understanding of risk, danger and consequence. When you see a middle aged bloke ragging around dangerously it just means they have small baby brain :)

  • Car Throttle - Mr Bean colour edition... And Alex.

  • Funny, fresh, entertainning. Choices on cars are personal but humour is welcome. Thank you and keep it up.

  • Honestly every cock in a fiesta wants to race me in my 6R. Its annoying

  • I suggest getting either a Mercedes 200td, a Volvo 850, 940, 740, 240, v70 or some e-class estate

  • Love the bike stories and everything else of cause. Gareth & Alex are spot on they are only dangerous if you make them dangerous. Been a biker for over 50 years as I love them but I am still learning. You won't regret it Ethan & Jack.

  • Feel like the lads need a reality check with their young driver insurance costs, all the cars they recommend would cost 10* much to insure

  • Ethan saying he’s level 37 in Pokémon go I wonder if he knows thats half way to 40 and under 10% to level 50 😂

  • Guys great podcast the Saab can be saved from the smell you need something like gtechniq I2 tri-clean it's got anti bacterial stuff in it so kills the cause of the smell not mask it.

  • That's what you get for offending us Saab Enthusiasts 😂😂😂

  • I need more Gareth in my life. That e46 estate bit was gold haha

  • Alex you should only be doing 50mph in a 60mph zone when driving a van anyway 🤓

  • For Alex: golf mk4 estate, buy one with a 1.8t.

  • Wait i didn't say Knock Knock but got the joke 😂

  • Can't wait to follow CT on BEBO! ;)

  • I have a Suzuki Swift Sport some mods but nothing engine wise and I always get people at lights trying to race me where I live in Hull. But some places I’ve been such as Leeds and Bradford it happens too so who knows 🤔

  • alex, vw sharan

  • hey CT team, here’s a suggestion for the chap getting a new car: BMW E91

  • Volvo V50 for Alex?

  • For the guy who wants a new driver friendly estate, I’d suggest a Mazda 6

  • Takes the piss when diesel vauxhalls or 1.0 fiestas try race me constantly just cause of the car i have. When they're up my arse all i do is slam on my breaks, watch them in the rear view mirror panic, then floor it away into the distance to make the point their car and driving is shit. Cant be only me who does this surely? 👀

    • @Jack Rigby I should point out i do slow down to a crawl before i do it and make sure no one else is behind them, just to see if they back off but if not then they deserve it. Works a treat usually. If i need to actually brake for an emergency and they rear end me i waint be happy so i do it as a warning to them but i get some people wont agree with doing it mate, each to their own 👍 its just my number one hate when im driving 😂

    • Brake checking I don't agree with mate but the rest I do there's a reason why performance cars a mainly petrol people what people try to shit on things that are actually good whether it be cars or houses or whatever you won't the attitudes or manners on the road👍

  • Might be showing my age a bit but ICE used to stand for In Car Entaintment, basically what mods you'd made to your stereo system

  • Classic mini

  • Turbo diesel torque and auto gear boxes. Thats one of the reasons why people make overtaking difficult these days. Before, it was about gear changes, power band and road knowledge. now you just mash the throttle, so any tool can be a tool.

    • @Jack Rigby exactly my point jack... ;)

    • Agreed mate still for me that doesn't make it faster just makes the driver of the turbo diesel more unskilled.👍

  • Yh I got done by that on my 2002 cb500 motorbike

  • alex get a mazda 323f bj 1.5 good on insurance loves to rev and is classed as a sports wagon so is almost a estate also i got mine for 300 big ones

  • Is Alex red green colourblind ?

  • Cool cheap userfriendly estate. i would say Volvo 240,740 and 940 estate. 940 turbos are dirt cheap atm

  • 37:45 I think Alex (16yr) should get a volvo v70. Suits his needs perfectly

  • Oh god that intro is horrible.

  • The 16 year old should get a Diesel Range Rover P38 as a 1st car, cheap, learn the world by working on it and also a kind of lifted estate I guess. Not the most reliable mind....... nor simplest to work on. Sure Jack will agree with getting one after him mentioning his dad having one previously, then again maybe not.

  • Recon you should strip the Suzuki vatara and do what u did with the spacedar 👌🏻

  • You didn't mention the story about lorry and Jack

  • (Copy and paste) The answer is always e46 touring, my current 2005 model is a great family bus and still cool and getting quite rare now as well

  • Don't let these guys get to you, I still play pokemon go Ethan. LMK, and I'll add you as a pokemon go friend if you want. Send you some gifts from WA... =D

  • Lovely episode!

  • soo when are we gonna see part 2 with the blue mr2 ?

  • Gareth has to make do with a windows laptop, rip

  • =Knock Knock -Who's there? =E46 -(complete silence).....

  • If you want a 'grinds my gears', Mine's people parked on my side of the road, facing me, who are sat there with their LED or HID lights on. Not only can I not see past them, but it's illegal!

  • for alex who is looking for an Estate i suggest a v70 volvo or something similar or an alfa 156

  • I've got a 2016 1.2 fabia estate for a first car. Insurance is okay and it's not that slow. I've got the Monte Carlo so it's alright

  • Why is everyone wearing the same colour jacket 🧥

  • Volvo 850, cool sleeper potenrial

  • Just wondering how easy is it to find a Rustbox car for 100 Pounds in the UK i know that 100 euros and a 100 pounds arent exactly the same but we picked up a shitbox citroen from 98 for a 100 euros and its been with us since 2016

  • The biggest problem with overtaking these days is so many goody two shoes have dashcams that then report you. I haven't before because I can see one. On one occasion my mate got a fine for being reported once from a dash cam.

  • Yo any Swedes in here? Which volvo do I buy to turn into a sleeper? c30, one of the newer v40's?

  • I once noticed a BMW sitting on my arse on the motorway and put my foot down to get away from him. Turns out it was an undercover cop car and they then put on the blues and twos and did me for speeding. Wankers.

  • Alex, listen to Jack's advies and get a B5 Audi A4 or a B5 VW Passat (they're basically the same). Super reliable, easy to work on if you follow the workshop manual (which you can buy from VW for 8 quid), perfect first car!

  • What’s happened to the into/outro music - I like the old music!

  • Why so mustard

  • Hi,I want a free car pls

  • Seriously considering moving from the central to the outskirts of London. My car holds sentimental value to me so no way I'm selling it

  • Leon estate

  • Probably a golf estate

  • Mini Clubman would be a affordable, insurance friendly estate for young driver

  • Passat 1.9tdi ya clownzzzz

  • For the first car thing Volvo. Just every Volvo estate in the price range.

  • That intro music sucked

  • Saab cool?..........yeah.👍

  • 32:06 I like this guy; I hate that crowd. Especially living near a coastal area with nice roads to cruise, Sundays your stuck doing 40 in a 60 that people usually go 80...

  • God, I wish I hadn't looked at Gym With Alex on insta 🤣🤣🤣

  • Did Ethan , Jack n Garth wear the same coat on purpose 🤔, they look like a peasant boy band

  • Kicking up gravel to get rid of tailgaters BRILLIANT. This is why I watch the podcast XD

  • 18:13 Me when I throw too short lmao

  • Some motorcyclists are absolute maniacs. A few years back, a friend had one try to overtake traffic waiting to turn right, that bike ended up embedded in the driver's door of a very rare Tommi Makinen Evo VI and the rider got a free trip in a helicopter. Fortunately he lived to see another day.

  • No problem with the bike chat!

  • Re the people trying to race you all the time. I find that in my current vehicle mk3 focus rs, I was always saying to my wife when I got in from being out in the car. She would be like yeh yeh whatever I dont think they are trying to race you. She took my car one day to go to the shops and came back saying I've had loads of people trying to race me🤣🤣 The young guy should buy a volvo 240 estate 2.0 red block, get it on classic insurance and then when he has a few years ncb whack a turbo on it.

  • When we had our WRX a guy in a Peugeot 106 tried to race us. We were just cruising in 3rd gear but the little 106 got pushed too hard and nearly spun out 😂.

  • Car throttle doing bikes 👎

  • Bed postcard... best portgrind... beast pork roast... something like that.

  • Did Alex not get the memo on the group outfit for this video?....

  • older audi estate would be the one for a cheap first car estate. the allroads are sick and they all have tuneable engines. get a quattro if you can

  • the point about less people overtaking slow traffic is real

  • I liked Alex in the new season of blown away

  • I agree with Jack. Audi A4 B5 avant. You can get a 4 banger or a v6, quattro, tuner friendly and great handling.

  • Is there heating in the garage? If not I suggest getting some. People look freezing

  • Oh I’m so doing that, merging on the white line. So meany cunts up my arse on a motorway

  • May i just add that it's not all old people driving well below the 60mph limit - or doing the same 40mph in a 30 limit. As an example, i'm 60 and ALWAYS drive at the top-end of any limit. I also overtake whenever appropriate/sensible to do so. I blame much of the slow driving that is now common place on people fiddling with gadgets and not paying attention to the road ahead. Many of these drivers are in their 20's or 30's, but not all by any means.

  • Completely with the Dave the overtaking man on how stupid and crappy people get when you overtake them.

  • I feel sorry for people in England Having such tiny gutless cars. My first car was a v8 Chevy

    • "Gutless cars" oh the irony...

    • Yeah in europe I think we started building for fuel efficiency more than in the US.

  • When you pull off an overtake in your 1l k11 micra with 60hp that’s a buzz that lasts for weeks!

  • Alex: 2,5 liter V70 of Subaru Outback if you like buying petrol....

  • So.... What will it take for me to have Ethan in my PGo friends list

  • 0:34 Is he trying to eat the microphone or just tired and resting on it?

  • Becoming a real strong fave now. Banter similar to the old Top Gear News. Thanks Lads!

  • Throughout three years of owning my Impreza WRX I had someone trying to race me, daily. Vans were the worst, you’d get half a car length past them whilst overtaking on the motorway and they would speed up.

  • As a bit of a left-field suggestion for young Alex looking for a first car, I submit the Nissan Note N-Tec+ from around 2012. It’s not an estate, and it’s far from cool, but the mini MPV/hatchback has plenty of room for five people and a decent boot, plus you get metallic paint, two colour alloys and tinted rear windows, which are ingredients are a cool car might have! They’re common and the main demographic seems to be older drivers, so it should insure cheaply enough. There’s plenty of engine options and other features, so I’d have to assume it won’t be too hard to work on or get parts for... Lots of scope for upgrades too! Failing that, fall back on CT Alex’s default suggestion - get a Celica ;)

  • im 19 and got an impreza wagon as first car - it is the slow as balls NA 1.5 one though lmao

  • Sussex Police used to have an undercover Mitsi Evo, but even though it was a top end model they had taken off the spoiler....

  • Skoda Octavia VRS estate I recon Alex

  • cool estate? How about an Alfa 159 Alex?

  • I also got done by an old Volvo estate was up my arse pulled up at some lights and it just fucked off was the 5 pot engine could tell by the stunning sound track

  • M4 as a 21st birthday present? Gareth must REALLY hate that car to send it to its death like that I constantly getting people who try to race me in my V70 and I say try because I may or may not have put a few parts on it It's not the craziest but it does keep up with 911s and M3s
