      If you’re giving less than £3k for a convertible 1 series it’s gonna be a dog 🤣

      main reason for electronic parking brake is space saving on the center console and ergonomic design. People want more storage and device charging space.

    3. Richard Gregg

      I came to a massive factor that Gareth almost hit with electronic handbreak. As we all know for years have been getting lighter due to keeping efficiency up for regulations globally. When you look at the weight of a mechanical over electronic handbreak the weight saving is massive. Hence electronic handbreaks.

      On the creeping forward at lights, sometimes its to stop the stupid auto start/stop. Admittedly I've done it a few times when I didn't want to disable the start/stop, but I knew the lights were going to change in a few seconds, so I stop a little short of the lights (less than a car length) and creep forward a bit.

      Replacement car for a micra I know exactly what car a 2005 Renault clio 1.2 or 2.0l sport :)

    6. Ross Murtagh

      Haha - only watching this today and seen a comment about Alex wearing one sock but what about Gareth wearing no socks at all😂😂

    7. Ross Murtagh

      Phil vs non-Phil!!, they need to race!

    8. Ronan Dyke

      Alex only has 1 sock on

    9. Frank larry

      3. pínnëd by Trádé Cónnéct VVS

        I meet Mr David for the first time at a conference in manchester I invested £25,000 and traded in one month making close to £143,670

      4. Martin Serrano

        Wow what a coincidence, you invested with Mr David also? I also trade with him I get to earn a biweekly trading income of $38,000 pioneered by Expert David ensuring sustainable profitability in my investment I'd say things are working out perfectly well ever since I started invest'ing with him keep up the good work sir

      5. Florence Christie

    10. Frederik Ruysseveldt

      Had the same thing. Drove up to a redlight crosspoint, shifted down to second and just turned right 🤦🏼 brain fart indeed. Thank god the cameras were off.

    11. Rob Beveridge

      Where’s this weeks? I’m driving around so bored

      1. Ауто камере Србија / Dash cams Serbia

        I really don't understand why they won't at least tell us in advance in a comunity post or something. Every monday afternoon I am waiting for the podcast in vain...

    12. Frederic A. Truslow

      1:01:30 the real answer is a SPONGE

    13. Adam Reilly

      Dear car throttle I have a car story that I want when to read :my wife my wife my wife my wife my wife my wife my wife my wife my wife my wife my wife my wife my wife my wife my wife my wife my wife

    14. Dan L

      Is the Karoq diesel Ethan? They’re is a delay on the Diesels Skoda’s because it automatically warms the glow plugs before starting and won’t attempt to start until the plugs are at the optimum temperature deemed by the engine control unit.

    15. Ауто камере Србија / Dash cams Serbia

      No podcast today? Why don't you tell us in the comunity post or something??? :(

    16. spyburn007

      Mike Brewer & Ed China found a mura in a barn. Classic episode

    17. Peter Bollans

    18. Peter Bollans

      even my dogs buried his head when alex started his unppooooopppppuuulaaaar opppinnion

    19. Alex Haslett

      Mx5 showdown, let's see what that £85k porshe V6 can do, come on Jack, f Phil up

    20. cpo sky

      there was a mk1 fiesta different front lights before the xr2 shape

    21. Benjamin Beringer

      I‘m from switzerland so i have no idea about pricing in the UK but if it‘s in the price range sam should get a Nissan 350z

    22. Harry Elsham

      22:20 is how i failed my first test lmao

    23. Kai

      Nobody else realise that Alex only has one sock on????????

    24. tyler naylor

      You need to get a police officer on

    25. issigogo_mini

      #projectshitbox is my project on insta 😂 it's on hold at the moment but will be in full flow in the summer, it won't be working but the project will be in full swing by then 😂😂

    26. Mikołaj Gołembka

      55:34 He could buy a Ford sierra in this price range. RWD saloon it rly isn't that expensive.

      1. Olibob

        no you cant 😂

    27. hAiRy HiPpY 24

      I once stopped at a red light and sat there watching the lights for the roads to watch them change so I knew when I could go, they turned red meaning mine where going to change so I floored it not realising mine were still red too, got about 150m before I realised I messed up, luckily there wasn't anyone else about at the time, I've also pulled up to green lights and stopped, I think Gareth has changed and its not in a good way, JLR aren't the best and it's annoying how hard he's trying to convince us

    28. kiwidogs66

      You want a comment on the mx5, I'd like to see both of them on fire!!

    29. steven king King

      Why has Alex got one sick on and one off and Gareth has none

    30. Andy

      Great shows guys, Ethans actually starting to get funny.

    31. Remy Neo-Jaf

      Don't you dare retort me!

    32. bergi85

      I hate red light creepers....

    33. chinboy

      Time to unsubscribe

    34. Anirudh

      1:02:28 I'm with you Gareth😂 Others seemed to have ignored the fact

    35. Michael Ford

      I definitely want to see Phil VS Anti-Phil!

    36. MavicMarc

      Love the police 🚔 comment about motorway middle lane hoggers.. you can ask Russell from ROforr George car media when you get him on 😇😇👍👍

    37. Kylirr

      pls don't take ur socks off again it makes this unwatachable

    38. Tha Last Gentleman

      Having waited way too long to redo my driving test, I can tell you it's much harder now then it was when I first passed. This falsehood that being taught these days is easier is bollocks. Anyone that says that should try and pass a modern test, I'd imagine they'd struggle.

    39. Antony

      I have a lupo love it

    40. Roy Stocks

      Did you all dress colour coded by seating positions for this 😂?

    41. Connor James


    42. Jeffrey Thompson

      I do indeed love your channel but you’re boring me.

    43. James Boyle

      Also cars play the engine noise on the the car so it means you hear less of the outside noises.

    44. BEAVIS Motorsport

      Alex rocking the one sock, one no-sock.

    45. Sam Gammon

      350z to the guy deciding what car to get

    46. Kyle B

      We need more z3 episodes and cheap car challenges

    47. Mark Wright

      DeLorean is actually fibreglass with stainless steel cladding, if I'm recalling it correctly from a recent video on one where it's the guy's first car. Late Brake Show channel video.

    48. Wehiremonkeys

      I was with my driving instructer recently just below 30MPH and some Vauxhaull driver decided to overtake and break the speed limit just before it went up to 50MPH.

    49. Mr Trendizzle

      Driving through red lights most do at some point in life. It's a minor lapse in concentration. Providing no-one is hurt it's a relatively minor offense but due to many many driving laws you can get written up for about 4 sperate offenses which is a piss take.

    50. ar1g3

      You can feel the monday evening vibe in this video

    51. Geetarth Neo

      That tone!! Got a wake up call.

    52. James Lockyer

      Yes Phil vs anti Phil would be an epic video but I do agree with Jack you should go to a track that is new to both of

    53. Ioan Nichols

      That’s a mk1 fiesta 🤦🏻‍♂️

    54. nekdo

      phill vs antiphill!!!!!

    55. R. Helmet

      The electronic handbrake on the older Insignia really is the most stupid handbrake I’ve ever experienced. In comparison to the VWs or Mercedes I’ve driven it doesn’t turn on automatically - not even when the car gets parked...

    56. Ryan Jagger

      Pretty sure it's a mk 2 fiesta mk1 had squared off headlights

    57. mike fernandz

      23:00 the same thing happened to me once I swore it turned green.

    58. Croft Van

      This may offend most guys, but being an avid listener & follower of Scotty Kilmer, the straight forward answer to why Electronic parking brakes are becoming increasingly popular amongst car makers, it's cheaper to manufacture and the bean counters push it. Also if a Electronic parking brake fails it is more expensive to fix as well as it involves sensors.

    59. Miles Thomas

      Flashing your lights at the temporary traffic light sensor definitely does not work

    60. Walitron 88

      Why have I waited so long to listen to these. Jokes.

    61. Scott Thompson

      Sam Miller get your self a Honda s2000

    62. Scott Thompson

      There are more bad drivers on the roads as there are more foreigners driving and they don't seam to get taught to the same standards

    63. Ayden Iveson-Ball

      @Alex... your socks, why do you have one on one off and then swop them over 🤣🤣 i can't focus on anything else 🤣

    64. james moakes

      Mx5 battle would be sick

    65. Conor Warnes

      I feel that less would be more with these podcasts, starting to get stale and we're getting less of the content that made me enjoy car throttle like cheap car challenged, ethan with a z3, miles, rx8 etc.

    66. Justas Talacka

      For a 2k car, look for a Citroen DS3, wife will love it, cheap to run, surprisingly comfortable, has a biggest boot in its class. Might be a bit more money, but can def. find some at that price

    67. Justas Talacka

      BLUES AND TWOS TO THE LANE HOGGERS ALL THE WAY! Would do it myself if I had blues :D

    68. Madman

      13:50 I always leave nearly half a car lenght in front of me, to make the guy in front comfortable, especially on a sloped road But over half of the time that bastard behind me sits on my bumper, for real. And it's extra stressful for me as I never start from the handbrake - I always rely on my reflex on pedals

    69. saglike93

      Ethan, "It's only illegal if you get caught" Alex, Gareth and THE ENTIRE INTERNET, " T R U E "

    70. stewal

      Overtaking cyclists is the biggest part of dangerous driving these days - you need to give them at least 1.5 metres: very few drivers do but remember if it goes wrong and you kill, recent court cases have proved you are guilty of dangerous driving not driving without due care and you will likely be jailed for it........

    71. Moto-Xplor

      Really disappointed with the answer for the riddle! I was shouting pasta at the TV! 😂

      1. Capt Shiny

        You mean you don't normally do that? Weird.

    72. TheMrbazooka

      Top Job Chaps 👌

    73. Justin

      Oh my god Ethan's story had me in stitches hahaha

    74. Douglas Pealing

      You heard it here first guys... cars are too safe.

    75. Francis Cope

      Every time someone asks which car to buy next, I think ‘mazda 6’. Literally every time.

    76. AC2505

      Thought you lot were car guys, that's not a mk1 Fiesta , it's a mk2 !

    77. Foxtrot Mike Lima

      so you're just a podcast channel now, or?

      1. Capt Shiny

        *checks video upload history" No, you're just being ridiculously unreasonable.

    78. R C

      Ratty little face .....over the line there 😅

    79. Lewis Tate

      Phil vs Jack’s turbo mx5 vs ethans z3...

    80. David Kaye

      OUCH ! My ears !!!!

    81. Ironhide Autobot

      For 3k you'd get a great condition RX-8 with no engine worries. As long as you don't mind the fuel bills and send it a bit if its only short journeys then it's a fun daily that'll work just as well as any other car. I ran mine as a daily with no issues for 2 years before making her dedicated track toy

    82. DappaDon Dave

      £3k - Smart Roadster!

    83. Sviyy

      Are you ever going to make some real video's again?? I like the podcast but it's really all you ever do now..... Would like to see more action, atleast more than ones a week.............

    84. Steve Smith

      Sorry, can you all shout out "we love penis" again, please?! 🤣

    85. Abi

      Why does Alex have 1 sock on and 1 sock off???

    86. Aaron Thomas

      Why has Alex only got one sock on

    87. Sam Court

      What are you gonna do when (if) Gareth ever sells that bloody M4? It’s been the gift that keeps on giving so far. You guys keep on recommending the 130i but prices are going up at the mo, any for around £3.5k will be bloody dogs. The 125i is a good shout and is easily remapped to 130i power.

    88. Charles Scherer

      I thought it was pasta

    89. N H

      At 45 years of age why do I find Ethan saying “my wife” so funny? I’m a grown up, I should be laughing at satire on Radio 4. 🤔

      1. Capt Shiny

        You can do both. 😁

    90. Sinky

      Back in January there were temporary lights set up and it was snowing. My lights were on red and I had a car sitting behind me. At the other end were three cars waiting and I could see the red light reflecting on the front of the car at the other end. Eventually after about two minutes I put on my hazards and went through the red. I stopped at the other end and explained to the guy in front that there was snow on the sensor and I watched in my mirror as the three cars also went through the red. If you do it slowly and with due care then it shouldn't be an issue.

    91. WizardsNipple

      Why the fuck has Alex got one sock on? lol

    92. Alex Flockhart

      Why has Alex got one sock on and one bare foot?

    93. Naomi Williams

      Why is Alex only wearing one sock and Gavin isn’t wearing any?!

    94. darcy gerrard

      I want to buy Gareth’s M4, then sell it back to him on the quiet, just so he can say he has sold it! Now where did I put that jar of coins.🤔

    95. jonathan axelsson

      Show mx5 vs mx5

    96. Bassistbeth

      I’m a delivery driver for a local supermarket too and have been since the start of lockdown last year. The amount of impatient arseholes that are out on the roads. We stop our van for 2 minutes and you have people honking, screaming and shouting at you. The amount of verbal abuse I’ve dealt with over the past year from ignorant drivers when I’m trying to help people live is unbelievable.

      1. Capt Shiny

        Shame you can't record the numberplate for a centralised delivery driver database, so that those people never get a home shopping delivery ever again. I mean, they have to stand behind their decisions, right?

    97. Richard Green

      Some traffic lights only let 3-5 cars through and if you know this you need to think fast.

    98. zector

      Well, I was agreeing during the discussion about drivers becoming worse due to the cars becoming "better". Then I remembered all the Russian driving videos...

    99. Brian McIntyre

      This podcast is 2 sound lads and 2 complete bell ends, I'll let you figure out which is which!

    100. Joe Kimpton

      Yessss, Phil Vs Turbo Mx5
