    2. rolon96 2810

    3. ash mellor

      so cool

    4. Kien Fung

      Hope you getting well soon! Enjoy your mint mx5!

    5. Joshua D'Oliveiro

      OK. undoubtedly one of the best ideas this channel has ever done, and I love your other videos too!

    6. Tom Middup

      Man I was thinking about getting one of these, now I have watched this, I AM getting one of these!

    7. Barry Bigballs

      He’s got the same clothes on

    8. Brian Swift

      how to enter to get chosen need help with my mk2 galaxy

    9. JBRC

      Great Job !!!

    10. DataC0llect0r

      Why is everyone comparing to Pimp My Ride, its obviously more Car SOS-ish which is a great initiative. No negative energy from me. This is awesome

    11. Dan Ungureanu

      Well, my Alfa 159 Ti would love some attention, since I can't afford to fix it and it's a shame since they're nice cars.

    12. TheHighlander

      This should be a tv show, really enjoyed it. Well done lads

    13. KM PUNKER

      This series from you guys is awesome!!!

    14. Morgan Norville

      Do people in the UK use the word ‘dollars’ ?

    15. Witzel99

      You guys should do a real tv show doing this! The best Series on ROfor atm 🚗

    16. William Bilverstone

      I'll tell you what it's a real shame this is only two part

    17. GarThor Son of Odin

      Wait, you aren't going to go on a drive with Dave?

    18. Mark Noble

      This is the kind of wholesome content that I suffer through youtubes crappy recommendations for.

    19. Bdjdifjej

      maybe obesity is a factor in your bad health?

    20. automotive harry

      would u like to fully do a mk1 :)

    21. DiEsEl LoVeR

      Don't know why but seeing Alex using a polisher on a car makes me a little nervous

    22. PhilipPhilop

      As much as I'm jealous as I applied, this guy deserved it a lot more than I do as I've had a shit year like many people, but didn't almost die at any point. Plus his car is more interesting than my boring old shitbox. Good job as always CT.

    23. Michael Morris

      Hi mate what amazing video, so nice to see someone get such a lovely gift, car looks amazing, I've had horrible year, and as single dad off 2 every days a struggle, I thought was such a great story I've emailed Alex and the team, asking if anyway could help me and my 2 littleones with our car to get back on road, would be amazing to get some kind help and have some luck for us other the bad luck, take car and hope enjoying car :)

    24. Vincent Wheldon

      chronic fatigue ... needs to go on a fucking diet and work on his laziness how great is covid for excuses eh

    25. Richy10 Vtec


    26. Matt W

      Unless this guy gets in shape, he will not be with us long. You never see people in their 60s that are that large. I hope he does though. Best of Luck!

    27. Stefan Bekan

      That is a very tastefully done MX5.

    28. M You

      Nice one chaps! Bit of a Saturday morning ROfor and coffee feel good factor with this video.

    29. MrLincoln87

      damn what a transformation.... I thought I would like having a white car, its the clean car cheat code... but darker colours are much more rewarding

    30. Aston Kitchener

      Got to throw in the classic 'XFactor' sob story lol all jokes aside such a nice thing to do, well done guys!

    31. notmychannel

      Really like these vids where you help people.

    32. Isak Strömstedt

      3 mil guys holy shit remember when you had like 500 000

    33. darek4488

      8:35 Nice orange peel

    34. Sampath Rajapakse

      I wish my car can be fixed as I’m struggling with money without a job 🙁

    35. billy2rivers1

      Car throttle sos.

    36. Gregor Rose

      “You’ve now got Meistersinger R’s” “…ööh!”

    37. Sjors

      Has Gareth lost weight?

    38. sixx sense

      i need this on my mx5

    39. Samuel Kim

      car throttle special? now that's familiar....... and i liked it

    40. joe

      I miss the podcast

    41. M3 Technologies

      Wonderful job, CT! For awesome videos about cars, this is the channel to subscribe to. Top Gear, Pimp my Ride, Wheeler Dealers... I mean, they are the whole package!

    42. Coen80

      I don't really care for the story, truth be told, because everyone carries hisnown luggage, but i do like these carSOS type a deals. Always nice to see people helping others.

    43. Adrian Tache

      Thank god you put a new badge in, it bothered me more than it should.

    44. First name Last name

      This reminded me of car sos

    45. Dave Jenvey

      I stopped watching soon as i new it was about Covid. Don't start bock ticking and comforming becoming lefties. Bad form guy's keep politics out of it.

    46. Carl Constant de Flon

      I can believe that as covid mainly strikes the fat, unhealthy and weak....

    47. Ivor Problem

      Car sausage throttle

    48. Viet Nguyen

      DO A SKID MATE 👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽

    49. Daniel Marchant

      We were fit and healthy 😂

    50. Tadhg Bolen

      Fly to America and do this for me :(

    51. Max Reemtsma

      19:05 Dave: "I want to hug you" Alex: backs away

    52. woolfy101

      Enough with this kind of content, the good vibe thing only goes so far for ratings. Time you balance it out with some mildly racist-sexist comments and exotic road trips with unobtainable supercars. #actuallyreallyawsomeanddomoreofthisplease 😃✊🏻

    53. BornTo Soar

      if pimp my ride actually did cars that apricated i feel this is what they would have :), i loved this episode so much i really enjoy when you guys actually show us the in depth mechanics so others can learn from you :)

    54. Cha Leowin

      I think is reaction was genuine.

    55. MPHPhotography


    56. Giulietta_QV_280HP

      this channel is the best of top gear, pimp my ride, car sos, wheeler dealers and everything combined into one channel. You are the best!

    57. Matty Sea

      Gareth’s sock / shoe combo is suspect

    58. Dave Ellis

      Recorded horizontally:)

    59. rhys potter

      I have an impreza that has been looking at me for about a year begging me to get it back on the road fancy coming round i can supply tea and biscuits

    60. mark houston

      Had covid last September, not so bad I had to go to hospital, but the fatigue STILL hits me, but the worst still is the sense of smell, anything that's a bad smell just smells of gas to me, and sweet food just doesn't taste the same. Can you fix my car? 😄

    61. LNS_CTDi

      This is amazing I love this sort of stuff when you do it 😁

    62. TARW Creations

      I used to have a Mk3.5 and it was bloody awesome!

    63. Kris Burton

      Switched off after seeing he was morbidly obese and got covid... 🤦🏻‍♂️

    64. YouTube stop

      Good job for 3 million sub

    65. Iain Bagnall

      Question for the boys; would you say the NC is easier to work on than the NA/NB, harder, or same/same?

    66. Rickard Dahlberg

      Love the show! Wouldn’t mind more episodes where you each buy one car and compare.

    67. Gonçalo Dinis

      lovely saab 93!

    68. Dmitry T

      Good and careful job done by Gareth, Alex and Jack. Wish Dave a good health and motivation! The wheels guy though simply sprayed the pefect light silver colour OEM wheels with that gray paint- those should be sanded and powdercoated to be durable.

      1. DSS199

        Thanks for the kind wishes

    69. Willson's Tube

      Get Dave in Colin!

    70. Metcalfe's Law

      Dave has never been fit and healthy. Why, 10:45

    71. Swung Yard

      Fun fact me and David have the same kettle

    72. a guy

      I'm pretty sure that this video was inspired by the TV show "Car SOS" but the owner actually knows that someone took his car to "clean it"

    73. Wilson Tuning

      meguiars who sponsored them and now gyeon...interesting xD love both brands and use both brands in my detailing business hahaha

    74. Rich

      I love it, the car is basically immaculate to begin with though!

    75. hasnain mahboob

      16:12 IS that a bmw m6 e63 lurking in the background

    76. Stefan Vlasceanu

      Hi! Do you think that in the future cars with gasoline and diesel engines will disappear from their production in the future? I hope this never happens!😖😭😪

    77. Jon Burnell

      Yes guys! More of these please. Truly heartwarming to watch.

    78. T Tall

      Well done lads. That's a really lovely thing you did there for Dave. Keep well Dave and all the best.

      1. DSS199

        Thanks for the kind wishes

    79. Dragonzord

      Fuck yeah dave, you legend :D Keep being awesome mate

      1. DSS199

        Thanks mate, at first I read it wrong

    80. TheTerryTurbo123

      Man caught media driven disease panic and couldn't afford to pay for maintenance on his old Mx5 because he got another loan and bought a newer Mx5. My heart bleeds

      1. TheTerryTurbo123

        @DSS199 Well, I'm big enough and ugly enough to own my mistakes. So I apologise for my assumptions and am glad for you and your Dad as enthusiasts who both share an interest. I hope your Dad's ill health isn't permanent and I apologise that my cynicism about ROfor influencers led to me putting 2 and 2 together and come up with 5

      2. DSS199

        @TheTerryTurbo123 no coincidence, it was there by design. You realise hours of footage was edified down into a smaller episode. There isn’t time to explain every little detail. The car is my fathers, he was there to assist due to my ill health at the time of filming. Simples.

      3. TheTerryTurbo123

        @DSS199 Well from my initial assumptions, that only leaves an uncanny coincidence then. Vid felt about as real as a £23 note but fair play on getting your car done up out of it all

      4. DSS199

        @TheTerryTurbo123 not my wife’s either

      5. TheTerryTurbo123

        @DSS199 Wife's car? Or just an uncanny coincidence 🤔

    81. Willem J

      Car SOS ?

    82. Muaad ElSharif

      Nothing done on the car under the hood. Just a long commercial for cleaning products.

    83. Chris Taplin

      I'm nearly 50 and still laughing at Rim jokes. 😂

    84. Art Pereira

      Don't understand the hate, that is the best looking MX-5

      1. DSS199

        Me neither but that’s what people are link on the internet.

    85. Loukas Mexis - Notes On Wheels

      Good on ya mate, wishing swift recoveries, hope we all get out of it healthy and better.

      1. DSS199

        Thanks for the kind words. It will take time but we will get there

    86. Black Falcon

      Well done Car Throttle Team! You've done a lot of good in this time by extending yourselves from one enthuasist to another :)

    87. a boddle88

      Lovely couple! Well done CT

    88. J P

      Looks fantastic. I'm jealous. This car is pretty much exactly what I plan to get. NC2 sport in black,soft top. I plan to get wheels done in gun metal grey sort of colour and want to fit Meister's! Let me know if you're selling! But I know that's not going to happen 😁

    89. Klavs Eglitis

      The most English reaction to a surprise :D

    90. Dom The Italian Dad

      That's a nice and kind thing for you guys to do, great job! out of curiosity, will you ever do a video comparison between the Audi S5 b8.5 sportback and the b9? If you need a b8.5 to film I can gladly land you mine, it's a bit special too

    91. Leandro S

      Do those Meister Rs work for mr-s’ too?

    92. Frazer Joseph

      Yo can y'all come over here too perhaps? Got a very much previously neglected car here 😂

    93. flomp

      so you know the fender to door line existst everyone tapes it off like the line is already there

    97. Chris Scars

      Morbidly obese and almost dies of COVID... lul.

    98. Paul Burgess

      You guys are amazing, great video, much love ❤️

    99. Sam H

      You do realise you towed that illegally with the Skoda Octavia? Its maximum towing capacity is 1600kg. There's no way the trailer and car weighs less than 1600Kgs.

    100. Who Is Fillipo?

      I love this story. Can I put my name and car forward for getting a makeover please? I currently own a 2019 Mercedes C300 AMG Coupe and would like to turn it into a C63? I look forward to hearing from you. Well done gent's....good content and a nice thing to do.
