    I don't bother wearing a seat belt... The reason being... I only have a motorbike... No seat belts 😏 I do however wear full gear whenever I 'swing a leg over my bike'

    Not wearing a seatbelt as you are worries about your clothes getting creased, but you're OK with your legs and face getting creased?? Moron.....

    My dad doesn’t like wearing a seatbelt because he has broken his shoulder and collar bone and the bone sticks out and he said it pushes/pulls on it when he is driving also he has been told he is medically exempt

    SF and SG Fozzies are < 3200lbs. And for 6-7k GBP you could probably find one that has had the gasket service done with the nice aftermarket ones, but even if you get a weak one, keep the budget to have them replaced. My buddy has an SF with >200k mi on the new gaskets, no problems (with the engine).

    Cov ring road is a national treasure! The inside lane is for normal driving and the outside lane in for entering and exiting, it’s that simple. The slip roads however, well they’re promoting bumper cars.

    Mazda 2 is amazing. My wife has the JDM version and it handles like it's on rails and somehow manages to keep up with my mapped 150bhp diesel Pro Cee'd in the straights because that CVT gearbox is witchcraft. It walks away from my car in the corners though.

    Alex: A Hummer H2. Loud, wide, uses fuel like there's no tomorrow. And not quite as large as the H1 (but trying to be). Jack: A Reliant Robin. You never know what he's gonna do next. Ethan: An 80s Jaguar. High maintenance and never quite as posh as he thinks he is. Garreth: A Holden UTE. Kinda cool, kinda exotic but not the most useful car. And keep the podcast on the main channel, please.

    Haven't got a "racing driver" friend... but I guess almost everybody has that friend that considers himself the best driver on the road,;always being critical and raging at other drivers... even being that annoying passenger seat driver... but he's also that one friend that gets the most tickets, damages his car the most and has totaled multiple cars. And of course, never his fault.
