  • "vote with your feet" means to walk away and take your business elsewhere... how have you guys never heard that before?

  • @Car Throttle 1:22 (GARETH LAUGHING) Genius.



  • '...what he said about culture, generally meant he was pretty uncultured....' polite way to say he was a Racist I would guess..

  • Honda XR's don't have keys except for the shitty lock on the steering head. They are kickstart and fuel tank doesnt have keys so I call bullshit on that story. The L series of XR650L do come with electric start but rare as fuck here

  • Reminded me of Alex and his smooth chat up lines 😂😂😂

  • 46:52 anyone else immediately go to only to find some other shit website already owned it?

  • Just want to say fingerless gloves guys, they are a lifesaver ;) Also what size would you say the perfect engine is, both for car and bike?

  • An old friend of mine is a car salesman, to say they are sexist i would say..... you're probably right 🤣 in his words "all a female owner mean is its not been serviced!", while I told him he's full of it it is frustrating that my girlfriend lives up to this quote😑

  • Car mods I hate .... big wings, pop & bang maps and stickers in the windscreen, they aren't cool.

  • the nicest dealer ive ever dealt with was a Rolls Royce dealer... i had absolutely no business being in the showroom or worth his time, he made more in commission in one sale then I would make a year and he was still super kind and hospitable

  • Don't be sexist, but I think that people who see you on the street just know more about you bc you are seen more on the channel. Obviously include everyone in the conversation, but I think that might be an explanation.

  • This is a brilliant podcast. Everyone seems to have a funny story or experience to share - LOVED IT !!!!

  • 20:00 best part

  • 20:10 almost spat my drink out LOL

  • I’m gonna install all of these just to annoy fellow car enthusiasts

  • The DVLA are very good at giving your details out full stop, I updated the address on my licence once and suddenly a load of old debts from my teenage years showed up on the doorstep as well as other junk mail addressed to me, yet the DVLA are the only people who knew the updated address.

  • I swear, I truly believe there has to be zero actual master mechanics in England as they all have no idea what they’re talking about at least 15% of the time usually a lot more.

  • Honestly blast pipes and shakotan exhausts are THE MOST obnoxious

  • The podcasts are fun and all but when are you guys especially U ALEX, going back to: awesome affordable cars,automotive misfits, living with a..., car trivia and all the good stuff which made me fall in love with the channel. I appreciate that you guys are giving us content fairly often but its starting to become boring at this point

  • Listening to this just as I overtook an orange MK3 focus ST with.... A sticker of a toilet on the fuel filler cap. O dear o dear o dear. Great podcast guys

  • Feels like it’s 50/50 with ladies buying cars. Current car, walked into dealership, here’s my money, now show what I want. No problems there.

  • Powered by fairy dust and i’m not drunk I’m avoiding potholes!! Twat!!! Haha

  • I’m peep show too! Madness!!!

  • i hate when people take supercars & modify to level its not a supercar anymore.

  • Abbie - calm down sweetheart, car dealers are dicks to everyone and not just women! Just stand your ground, be authoritative, and walk away if you need to. On a separate note guys, bit ironic of you to prove that you're not racist or sexist by being ageist instead!

  • "Vote with your wallet" is the way I've heard it (~28 minutes in)...

  • thats the best one yet 0:12

  • there used to be a manufacturer called puma over here in brazil, they made fiber glass sports car, that used the beetle chassis and drive train hahahaha

  • Wheres oakley insta?

  • S A A B 😎

  • Someone needs to let Gareth know that once you own an EV, your opinions on cars and car modifications are no longer valid. Just being honest. Lmao

  • well done alex! actually mean that with the engage with girlfriend/other people when they meet you! on the verge of sounding like a knob but pulled it back from the brink! Love the pod cast guys and we need more phil in our lifes!

  • poor rory

  • I don't know what's more shocking, that none of you have heard the very common phrase "vote with your feet" or that none of you could figure out what it obviously means considering you were discussing the very context of it seconds prior to it.

  • I think someone needs to school Gareth on the difference between true Anti-Lag and mapped in pops and bangs on a Fiesta ST! 🤦🏼‍♂️

  • MAN that is a LONG email!

  • Another classic bantz session. Cheers boys !.

  • I met this old car dealership owner and he kept bragging about his Thai wife who was clearly half his age or more, and kept mentioning his bullshit corvette stingray from the 80s or 70s I just wanted to buy my car and go lol

  • I knew it! I f*cking knew I heard south african in Gareth's accent

  • is it true that (bloody nora) says only older people? come on brits , englanders, schots help me out.

  • Any chance a some more content instead of podcasts all the time. Really boring.

  • Review the Alibaba supercars?!?

  • Look at jack at 31:11 ahaha!!!

  • i think we buy any shitbox .com has a good ring to it

  • As an older guy, I loved your assumption that it's mainly us responsible for the majority of sexist and racist behaviour. From the four young, white and straight guys on the podcast.

  • My neighbour has a sticker that says ‘I’m not gay but £20 is £20’

  • "Knock Knock" "Who's there?" "Dishes" "Dishes who?" "Dishes the ghosht of Sean Connery"

  • my pet peeve of mods.....Stretched tyres on rims. No point in this whatsoever apart from the look (which is poor in my view). Youve got less contact on the ground, not a good idea!

  • Love Abigail's email, and she's so right, some of us women know a thing or 2 about cars and really don't appreciate being treated like we're just dumb barbie's 😏

    • It’s literally the worst!

  • THE MIDLANDS ACCENTS.... I WAS IN STITCHES 😂😂😂 ...p.s, the Cornwall 'AAAARRGH!' Sounded like a pirate 😂

  • Cool! #AcCollection

  • whats up with the Audio? sounds like the microphones shut off when you aren talking and the instantly turns back on when you start talking but then misses the first split second of evey word.

  • Buying or selling a used car these days is just a shit show, everyone thinks they are a 'trader' these days & think they are some sort of commercial genius. Any car your selling 'needs paint' any car your trying to buy is just wildly misrepresented by the seller in the hope that when you get there you'll just accept the issues as you've made the effort to go see it. There's always been an element of this in the 30 years I've been driving but since the advent of social media sales its got much much worse.

  • North of the border? Have us Scottish just annexed Manchester?😂

  • Gareth's parents must be some hardcore car enthusiasts. They named their son after a turbo!

  • Speaking of bikes in the house, the mate of mine who's Volvo (and Nissan Micra) pickup conversions I tagged Alex in keeps his GSX-R in the dining room so she's nice and cosy 🤣

  • The long meandering endings are my favourite.

  • Hey you guys really have kept me sane these last few weeks keep up the pod casts

  • Vote With Your Feet - Business term meaning to leave that business or service, rather than continue to be abused by attitude or actions of that business.

  • What happened to your Podcast Van you were making?

  • The bloke on the left in black is especially boring. But at least he cured my insomnia.

  • I’m called Phil and I’m offended.

  • Why can’t Alex say Abarth? 😆 (Not Arbath)

  • what is the name of the chocolate they are talking about at 10:22?

  • You can tell the guys are cold recording this one

  • 'Pops and bangs' maps are not the same as anti-lag. Anti-lag is functional.

  • "Vote with your feet" means walk away. Walk away from them and give someone else your business.

  • Pro tip: that long damn email, don't boost SJWs. It's well known that traditional male car dealers see women as easy prey. The whole "respect women" feminism movement is worth avoiding. SJWs, how about, respect everyone equally, no victim culture. Any dealer or anyone behaving like that needs to be told immediately that they're being disrespectful. Then use the "vote with your feet" and walk away.

  • Big up Harlow! Every Twats got a shitty 125cc here

  • And as for the woman selling her car sell the car and buy or trade your car with a private seller your'll get a better deal and your'll both be happy that's why when you buy a car always test drive it and make sure it suits your needs. Ps stand your ground and if you don't like how there behaving say no I'm not selling the car to you I'm going to put it up online and sell it there instead.

    • @Abi Haha 🤣 karma will always strike

    • It was up online, the guy offered me one figure and got it down to paying off the finance. Stupidly, he thought he knew a lot about Abarths and that it was worth more than it was, no abarth enthusiast likes the 695 xsrs and he still has it online for £14 k which is £1k more that I bought it last Christmas 😂 Karma.

  • I'd say that guy with the Honda xr25 bike just got a lock Smith to unlock the tank and he probably changed the locks .

  • got to be dumb to spend £1230 matiz thats damaged and dodgy dealers lol

  • Like you boys but......

  • did you stop making fun car videos? It's just that we have enough podcasts with 4 white dudes in their 30's

  • The keyman........ well remembered

  • Gareth most of the time it's not really anti lag, it is literally just pops and bangs to sound racecar, hence the name. Proper anti lag is aggressive af

  • I'm surprised they didn't mention stupid amount of camber as a trigger thingy

  • Please stay on the subject.

  • What podcast episode was the locksmith story? I can’t remember

  • How the hell have they never heard of "vote with your feet"?!

  • Suggestion: £2500 v8 car challenge

  • "Vote with your feet" where have you been living not hearing this phrase? Simply means walk away and go somewhere else.

  • 20b swap for phill

  • wewantanyshitter

  • “Vote with your feet” can three of you have never heard this saying before 🙄

    • I've heard "vote with your wallet" but never with your feet.

  • I learned the British version of salting the roads here in the US. Gritting the road. Very interesting!

  • Wait!!!!!!!! You guys sold Miles?!?!?! Unsubscribing

  • Oooo chocolate lesbians, lovely biscuits

  • Pops and bangs is just more fuel going in anti lag spins turbo so there is no lag

  • About the matiz story: I would've instantly left after the dude redlined it cold. Fuck that. Hearing that made my ass open up.

  • I tell you what Jez, this podcast is really moreish.

  • Worst car mod ever. Those yellow ‘baby on board’ stickers people put in their cars when they breed. Why do they think anyone else gives a shit? 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

  • "24:00 It is polite to only talk to the one person until they introduce the other because sometimes the other person does not want to meet a random fan.

    • Funny to see the difference between UK/US norms cuz a lot of US EEclone personalities don't want their S/O bothered by fans

  • Stickers are a bad mod? Best take the car throttle sticker off my car then 😤

  • Always swallow. It's rude not to...

  • Yeah in terms of angry toe reviews, if you want good service, don't ever use motor range because they are shite they were horrendous to deal with the whole way though buying and with the problems we've already had with a 67 reg car

  • Should put a 2jz not a v8

  • Tell Mike to put the heat on, Damn!
