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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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........

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

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.

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.

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.
