    '...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

    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😑

    I'm with Gareth. Anti lag is extremely pointless on a road car. Especially if the car is not even turbo charged. No decent tuner would pour fuel out their exhaust to make bangs. It's like strapping a giant dildo to your pants and walking around waving it in peoples faces.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
