    Special Edition - Hyundai i10 N-Line Review

    Amateurish And Disappointing - 1 December 2020

    Amateurish And Disappointing - 1 December 2020

    On this week's show, we have two pieces of Follow Up, the first is that license plates with a green strip will be legal on the road from 8 December this year, the second is some background to Zero Carbon World who are giving away free charging points to businesses, we get into the new news with the odd story of the EV report claiming a silly amount of mileage for them to be on a parity with ICE cars - but that's not the odd bit, Renault will be swapping cars for recycling at Flins, the needed toll increase to the Tamar Bridge toll has been shelved thanks to a Government grant, there is good news because a Christmas Travel Tsar has been appointed, thankfully the RAC is upgrading their patrol vehicles so will be better placed to deal with the expected chaos, Audi announced it is leaving Formula E, WRC Monza is this week, the Lunchtime Watch is an excellent video about polarising design, the List of the Week is simplicity itself, and the And Finally celebrates the start of this year's AutoAdvant from Jon Male.

    As ever, we really hope you enjoy the show and feel free to give us feedback on how we could make it better!

    Special Edition - Mercedes-Benz Vito 119CDi Premium

    Special Edition - Mercedes-Benz Vito 119CDi Premium

    With characteristically good timing, Alan needed to make a trip to Scotland inter-lockdown to collect more stuff than would ever fit in a Yaris. This seemed like a good opportunity to play at “White Van Man” to remind ourselves just how competent the current generation of mid-sized vans is and to see just how much you can fit into a Mercedes-Benz Vito.

    Special Edition - Subaru Forester e-BOXER Review

    Andrew had an example of Subaru’s first tentative step into the world of adding hybrid technology to their cars. Listen in as he tells Alan about his week with the car, how hybridy the car is and have they done a good job first time out.

    How Much Have You Been Drinking - 17 November 2020

    On this week's show, there is a tiny piece of Follow Up as the chaps discuss the latest claims from Carlos Ghosn, many people froth at the mouth about the proposed 2030 ICE ban and road pricing, the Government has approved the desecration of Stonehenge - sorry the tunnel plan for the A303 and Stonehenge, the Gordon Murray Group invests in a new HQ, the information screens of some Tesla's are failing which could result in a recall, Formula E is close to going testing for the 2020/21 season, we investigate how Monza is getting ready to host the WRC, the Lunchtime Read discusses that modern cars are too good, the List of the Week takes us back to the 1990s, and the And Finally is about the Micra and has Andrew asking about Alan's sanity.

Best weekly auto podcast

I’ve listened to Alan and Andrew for a couple of years now. A delightful weekly update that offers sensible insight to things going on in the motoring world.

Motoring as it really is

If you have any interest in motoring, what’s is current, what the further holds and wish to be entertained then this should be your first port of call.
Every week they manage to unearth new nuggets of our motoring present and further. It’s both factual, witty and will guarantee to leave a smile on your face.

My Favourite Podcast Full Stop

Informative, funny makes my day! The best car podcast, bar none! I have to stop now as I’ve run out of exclamation marks! Mr Clews, would you mind awfully, pulling your finger out (of whatever orifice it is stuck in and get a few ‘Rear Views’ knocked out? A man of your immense talents and one would think, spare time, during COVID-19, should be able to bang out a few quick smart? Keep on keeping on. MX-5 2019 spec driver, my fourth MX-5 I’ll give you a hand if you want I can talk cars, until the most avid ‘Petrol Headed’ loon tells me to shut the f up! Oh I found another exclamation mark under my desk all covered in dust. Should have been another exclamation marl there but I really have run out now, sad emoji.
