    It's late, blame Jesus.... After a bit of bollocks, we kick off the news.

    Joseph kicks off the news with the new Toyota GR86 being officially unveiled, and Melbourne's Albert Park racetrack getting a refresh/overhaul.

    Matt then talks about a spanish company turning ND MX5's into classic-styled Jaguars.

    Mitch talks about Porsche and Volkswagen's attempt at making funnies for April Fool's Day.

    [The audio spazzes out for a bit here; it comes good again]

    Mitch then talks about a bit of the work he's done to the #Shitegra.

    Joseph then gets back on the news band wagon with Mazda announcing the pricing for the new MX-30 from $33,990 (before onroads), and Matt talks about his Misso's old Mazda2, and Joseph then talks about General Motor's Special Vehicles news, specifically pricing for the new Corvette C8.

    We then end on Joseph's new game.

    We are back for episode 187!

    This week, we kick off with the sad news of Sabine Schmitz losing her battle with cancer at the age of 51.

    We then briefly talk about some Toyota dealers charging up to $150,000 for new 200 Series orders, and a long wheel base Jimny being spied in camo-wrap fuelling rumors a 5-door variant might be on the horizon.

    We then talk about how the EPA in the United States are wanting to ban street vehicle "motorsport" modifications, and how SEMA is fighting back.

    We then talk about the passing of Murray Walker, the voice of Formula One.

    Matt then tells us a story, before breaking into a discussion about what car he should get for his wife, and then goes through the list of Wheels' Car of the Year.

    We then play 'What Have You Done To Your Car This Week'.

    We then pick Australia's best car.

    We are back for episode 186 (though we say it’s 187, it’s not)!

    After usual bollocks, we talk about – and Mitch rants about – Subaru releasing a dual-cab ute called the Brumby, and seems like it’ll be based on the Toyota Hilux.

    Mitch then talk about Ferrari releasing the F171, a new 522kw ‘supercar’ powered by a hybrid V6, which is terribly sad, old man Enzo must be rolling in his grave, before talking about Ferrari making a return to LeMans in the new ‘Hypercar’ class (which replaces the LMP1 class).

    Matt then talks about the Australian automotive sales stats for February 2021.

    Then Matt goes on a bit of a rant about Volkswagen’s ridiculous SUV-focuses range, then the Range Rover and the Defender, and Matt talks about the RAM TRX (which we have already talked about, but whatever), and the new Hyundai Ioniq 5.

    Joseph then talks about the new Mitsubishi Express Van – which is just a rebadged Renault Traffic – being the first ever vehicle to get a zero-start ANCAP safety rating, and Mitch finally gets to talk about the new 5.0L Supercharged V8 coming to the Range Rover Defender.

    Then we talk about AliExpress, Mitch’s favourite website, and Joseph gives an update on how his new differential in his GT86 is going, and Matt talks about what’s being done to his LandCruiser.

    Fit And Not Finished

    Fit And Not Finished

    This is probably our most left-of-field start to an episode ever...

    Joseph somewhat kicks off the news - what there is of it - this week with news about the Porsche GT3 RS (ps. we never came back around to Mitch's Porsche pick, we're not very good at our jerbs), and then Matt clarifies the Subaru Impreza/WRX/STi breakups.

    We then suggest what car Joseph should get to be a new daily driver, as the 86 is becoming a little too racecar for daily driver duties anymore.

    Matt then talks about the Mk8 Golf R Wagon, and Joseph talks about the new Subaru Levorg, and an Amarok/Ranger based Land Rover Defender, and then we argue semantics.

    We then talk about the GR Camry, which we really like, and a Tesla Model 2, and the concept Mazda 6.

    Diesel Grunt Gets The Hmmmmmm

    Diesel Grunt Gets The Hmmmmmm

    Late again. My bad, my bad.

    Matt isn't with us this week, but in his absence, we still managed to smash out a banger of an episode for your earholes.

    After some bollocks, Mitch kicks off the news with a bit more leakage from the Toyota marque around the 300 Series LandCruiser... And sadly, it does seem like the next Cruiser will have a 3.5L-hybrid V6 twin-turbo petrol, and potentially a 3.3L V6 turbo diesel... From which we talk about how it's time to move on from the 2JZ.

    Then we briefly talk about Holden having ZERO sales for January 2021.

    Joseph then talks news from across the pond, the new Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing.

    We then talk about the rumours and lazy renders surrounding the 5th-gen WRX due in Australia in 2022 with the FA24DIT, and the ven more lazy rumours surrounding the Nissan 400Z.

    Then we talk about the next-generation Mercedes-AMG C63.... Which will have a spooly-boi 2.0L 4-banger from the A45S, plus a hybrid system, from which we then talk about Diesel's continued popularity in Australia, and then we end on general nonsense and a discussion on gearing.

    Smashed By The Covid Tax

    Smashed By The Covid Tax

    We are back! This week, Mitch kicks off the episode with a tale from his Saturday night concrete-sleeping adventure.

    Joseph then breaks into a real news topic by talking about the new 2021 BMW M5 CS.

    Matt then issues us a challenge by trying to find a 4x4 or a sports car that appears to not have been affected by the Covid Tax.

    Joseph then brings back the news by talking about SSC Tuatara actually breaking the high-speed record for real this time, by hitting 455km/h, and LMCT+ buying the most expensive vehicle sold at auction in Australia by buying one of the very last HSV GTSR-W1 Maloo for a smidge over $1million Aussie Dollarydoos.

    Mitch then talks about the updates to the Tesla Model S and X range, specifically the Plaid+ model variant of the Model S.

    Joseph then talks about some weird and crazy car laws in Queensland.

    Mitch then talks about the new Lada Niva getting a turbo on its new 1.3L 4-banger.

Worst podcast

Worst podcast I ever heard lousy audio sounds like they recorded it in a closet. Cannot believe they have 5 star rating.

Hilariously fun show

These guys are a great listen they talk smack to each other a lot but also talk about cars, not only that but they talk about stuff you actually want to hear about cars. They play games and have fun, everything a podcast should be.
