Actually VAG means or meant "Volkswagen Audi Group" or "Volkswagen Audi Gemeinschaft". What meant is the long version of "VW AG".

Back in 2014 my uncle was selling his 2011 Silver Mercedes E Class Saloon. Two guys came and pretended to be interested in purchasing the car. One was in the car and my uncle was negotiating on the price with the other guy. Then bam. He pulled out a knife but luckily he dodged it. He snatched the key and drove off. This happened in London in Ealing and the car was never found

Theory: "Smart" motorways actually aim to ease congestion by killing or emotionally scarring enough drivers to persuade them into never taking the motorway again.

I honestly never wore my seat belt while being in the rear of a vehicle, the front I buckled up. I Decided for my safety I would start buckling up every time a few months ago only takes a few seconds for your life to be saved and have many more years of life to come.

A couple of things occur to me. Firstly, why assume older drivers with FAR more experience than a 31 year old, would have a car that hasn't got the gadgets? Personally, I'd rather not have the gadgets; I have been driving for 50 years and I don't need them. But I do like a nice car. Another thing that occurs is the smart motorway thing. I had never heard of them until recently, and now I think they must have been invented by someone with the brains of a turnip. A vast majority of drivers don't even notice a road sign; they are not going to notice a big red cross floating above a motorway lane.

Top tip Alex, wrap your keys in tinfoil. It blocks the signal completely and stops people from stealing the car using a signal repeater.

So the car theft button, I reckon it would be great if the button activated a tracker, locked the doors and windows, and cut power. Granted they might just break the window but if not law enforcement could just go get them

I know “Alan” said a hot hatch for around 4-5k but perhaps a left wing choice to be completely different but for the same performance you’d get with a lot more torque and many more MPG e92 330d, very tuneable indeed and more torque than you’ll ever need, or maybe a 330cd e46 but more rust.

SMART motorways are not about road safety they are purely designed to increase revenue, the M20 is a notorious for being "activated" advertising obstructions that dont exist, the M23 is activated as and when they feel like making a few quid. the whole "safety" aspect is just a vale to cover this. The M23 Smart extension was originally meant to be done as part of the 2012 olypmics - over ran, then extended, they finally did the "SMART" bit that over ran and the average speed check zone was used for another 6 months during the lockdown just to get some money for the government. total con, I do a journey between Brighton and kent for the last 8 years, journey time is 20 mins longer since the SMART motorways were introduced across the M23, M25 and M20, traffic and congestion is disgusting, better to invest in teaching people not to sit in the outer two lanes!

the highways agency are f***ing useless.. the amount of times the m25 variable speed limit is set to 40mph for10 junctions and there no roadworks or anything happening on the m25, in the early hours of the morning, is a feckin joke... I'm an emergency callout engineer and it really pisses me off..

Glad you like the car. I've had my Mk2.5 Focus ST for nearly 7 years (my second one) & 4 years on one before that. It wasn't a global car until the Mk3 which was the same around the world. USA had the Mk1 pretty much the same as UK but then went a bit different for a while. There are Mk2 RS's in USA so you an still have the same 5-cyl engine, just a bit better.

I realise this won't be popular, but being strongly anti smart motorway is completely illogical and requires at least some misunderstanding of road risk. You have the same risk of being killed per mile travelled on a smart vs conventional motorway. You are three times more likely to be killed per mile travelled on an A road. Is anyone campaigning to ban A roads? No. Do smart motorways increase capacity of the motorway network to prevent traffic re-routing onto higher risk A roads? Yes.

54:25 - following on from Alex's story about the Taxi driver in Prague who wouldn't wear a seat belt. I've heard that in a lot of European countries (especially in Eastern European / EX USSR /etc) that it's offensive to Taxi drivers to wear a seat belt whilst riding with them. Like it's suggesting that you don't trust them.

fabia was my first car! not the VRS, 1.2 ambiente (60hp shitbox) I loved it! had a Volvo v40 afterwords which I just hated and never connected with, bought a mk2 fabia 14 plate Monte Carlo (facelift diffuser, spoiler, rims, etc) 1.2 again, however its a tsi so around 110 bhp and it really licks when you get higher up in the revs, looking to get either the fabia or superb ESTATE next!
