    12:55 I kinda agree with that guy. Concerning All the modern vans, There characterless tractor powered, voguish and plasticity euroboxes. It reminds me of those VW kids that modify their diesel Passat, Or those people that colourcode their windscreen wipers and calipers Haha The Only Vans that can pulloff modifications are oldskool. Like the old Volkswagen campers, The badass 70-80s V8 American vans, Old petrol transits, Bedfords, etc.

    I actually have a wonder, as I could've bought my dream car, a '67 Lincon Continental 4dr suicide hard top. It was either that, or get married. I got married three months after I decided not to jump on it, and was very sad to hear the car was sold, as they are extremely rare in Europe. My life changed quite a bit since, and if I would have gotten it, I'd not be in the same phase of my marriage, simply because of all the cost that would've occurred around the semi restoration of the Lincoln. I'm happy with my wife and our first kid is on its way, but sometimes I wonder... Keep up these nice podcast, I really enjoy them!

    Admittedly I've done the pull out on someone during an overtake. The 🔔 end was doing a "slow" over take my cruise control was on 75. But coming up on a truck at speed i had to put an end to his "slow" overtake.

  • Uday Khunti

    To Ethans point, one thing happens to me some time is the adaptive cruise slows me down when someone is turning of onto a slip road and when the car sees its out the way it speeds up which is a bit awkward sometimes if someone is over taking

    Hi guys. Theres a tiny thing that's bugging me. That thing when you say something echoing ever more quietly. You guys keep calling it reverb. It's actually delay. Reverb is like an echo you'd get in a big church. Delay is repeating the sound but quieter and quieter.

    Listening at home while working on my BMW E39, just to say I hate old plastic pipes which break and take bloody forever to replace, they do my head in when you start one job and end up fixing another because something broke while working on another, in the podcast van visit people and help them with their project cars to fix and repair ?

    You can get load rated alloys, common on the vivaro/traffic vans is X5 wheels as they're designed for a 2.8tonne car so are fine on a van with a gvw of 2.8tonnes

    OMG Alex got old... and not in the good way like Clarksson, complaining in a funny manner about things. Honestly how can a car guy say "I like tweets where police catch people" or want a cx5? Time for a replacement, because these views are bordering with senile behaviour.

    RE The accelerating topic @47:00 I'm fairly sure it s a psychological thing and is often not done on purpose. How, why etc. no idea... RE: the pulling out topic, VERY OFTEN people dont do two takes on mirrors before signalling/pulling out so they have very little awareness of approaching speed, or simply dont care. You will find that with loud cars general people tend to get out the way more often as they assume the approaching speed is fast, the remaining are just d*cks and get in front on purpose for some willy waving action...

    For the guy who wants a reliable 80's car: get an old Merc!!! Speaking from personal experience, here. I daily drive a '91 300D and it's an amazing reliable classic! If you' ve never driven an old Mercedes, you'll be surprised how "modern" it feels, it doesn't drive like most 30+ yo cars... they're much ahead of their time, future classics with very good potencial apreciation, and incredibly confortable and reliable.

    35ish mins through, my Mrs had a Saxo 1.1 many years ago, exactly same as 106 basically. It did the same thing with tickover and rough running, turned out to be the fuel filter!! Located underneath the rear of the RH sill as I remember. I changed everything ignition wise up to then, had fuel pump out, cleaned out vac hoses too. Turns out the FSH car had never had a fuel filter change 🙄 Ethan could well be right on this one 😂😂

    Yes, everyone needs to drive an SUV to dramatically increase your chances of rolling over in much less severe collisions. Had Jack been driving an SUV, that Royal Mail lorry could have caused it to roll and had him hospitalised instead of walk away from the collision. Boot space is more practical in an estate, height is just as good in an estate (the boot floor gets raised with the roof in all softroaders), height of the ground is lower with an estate, better for the dog to get in and out. If the roofline of an estate isn't enough for your dog then it needs a van or horse box, as the space needs to increase length and width wise as well as the dogs get bigger. Estates are better on fuel, have better performance and are cheaper for equivalent spec. They're also less expensive to buy tyres for alongside other wear items due to the lack of extra weight that comes with SUVs. Dealerships will support everyone going to SUVs as they get thousands more when they're bought and hundreds more for every service while barely costing them anything extra to build (maybe a couple of hundred pound of steel, copper for wiring, and material for headlining, sound deadening, etc), every VAG softroader is just a jacked up Golf, yet how much more are you paying for their softroaders vs a Golf?

    Don't trust carswithnoreservereading on eBay. They may have no reserve, but they have many many many fake bidders putting the prices up to what they want. Check out their feedback. You'll see loads of different 'buyers' giving them good feedback on cars they have then relisted.

  • RedHeadForester

    A lot of those new shiny works vans are on hire purchase, which can work out cheaper than keeping an old banger on the road especially when you consider lost work as a result of vehicle breakdowns. The modified ones, however... Less likely. They're the really good businessmen.

    Okay, in general, modified vans are a bit weird most of the time. However, I know someone who had a 90s VW Caddy that he fitted with a bigger engine, turbo, race interior and had properly lowered to only just above the road (but still driveable). Just for how unlogical it was to do that to an old Caddy, it was awesome 🔥

    I'm a bricky and have a 2020 Ford Connect MS-RT. There is nothing wrong with having a nice van. I drive my van 90% of the time. Why would I want to drive a crap van? I need my van for work so I need a reliable one. I'm a car enthusiasts. I also agree with Jack. Turning up to a job in a nice taken care of van shows you will take care and pride in your work. I also have a fiesta st and Hyundai i30N (my wife uses for work) for the other 10% of the time. Is there anything wrong with that or should I have a rust bucket of a car as well? Also enjoying the podcast. Keep up the good work guys 👍🏻

    50:15 these last couple of minutes almost earned you a thumbs down! SUV.....seriously? It’s definitely not an age thing, it’s a ‘I’ve given up on life’ thing. This can’t be happening, my favourite car channel is moving to the dark side. These are the things that the ‘turn engine on and brain off’ plebs drive. Please let this be a bad dream. 😩

    People speeding up when you overtake them is even more infuriating when you're in a truck. Cruising at 56mph on the speed limiter, getting halfway past a car only for them to either match your speed or slowly crawl up the inside of you. Absolute fucking pricks.

    SUV's are just a better way to give your dog a Hernia.

  • MergeCorner

    To link to the Peugeot 107 issue, a common issue is the throttle body cable coming loose and the seal being worn. so when you rev it'll rev up but as soon as throttle is closed it will choke the engine and kill. Potentially a reason? Hopefully that helps whoever's issue it was.

    To the guy deciding between the two golfs. Stay with the MK5 R32, its a great car, modern classic which have great engine you are and will not be able to buy any longer even in bigger cars. - Its very practical - Its very comfortable - Plenty of mods on the market - Great engine - 4x4 Just stay with what you have, the old cars are nice to look at but hell to drive.
