    2. Stavros Banos

    4. donkosaurus

      fire extinguisher in stick form? you must be Jo King

    5. George Coleman

      My old vitaras neutral battery terminal was touching the bonnet not letting it start. i only found out it was that because with the bonnet up it was fine and there was a hole in the bonnet where it contacted.

    6. Liam NIre

      51:23 - ".... they've got a top speed of around 20mph........" I have an electric scooter in China (stand on, not like a Vespa, although I have an electric Niu scooter too) that does GPS verified 52kph (32mph). It can genuinely be a bit scary! 😂

    7. Liam NIre

      Genuinely, after a few manufacturers (maybe 3 or 4) I was shouting "Cappuccino!" at my tablet.....

    8. Black Thunder

      I got space in Sussex. Wisconsin usa. The next town over is lisbon. No lie

    9. Callum Mankelow

      Question 12

    10. Joseph Phelps

      When are you guys roasting our cars again? Would love to get a chance to my newest addition lol

    11. fatBoy

      pattern emerging... avoid eastern euros when selling a car

    12. Jay

      Don't dress like a dosser and expect somebody to treat you like you're going to drop a heavy bag on a car. The amount of time wasters out there is unreal, don't dress like you are one.

    13. PugTours

      Thx Tom

    14. PugTours

      Hated to say it chaps.... think u getting scammed with the scam stories..... self-scamming in public?

    15. god forged

      Vitara does that .. u need to just open and clean the starter . Clean the gear and it will last u another 10k km

    16. Hamish McGown

      Very strange. It’s 2am and I cannot sleep and so I’ve decided to crack on with my Lego Technics McLaren Senna GTR that I got for my birthday and watch the latest CT podcast 😂 What a coincidence!

    17. ThEASbO888


    18. ThEASbO888

      Just watched Wrench Everyday'sLotus video where they spoke about Pretty Woman and come to this video who also are talking about Pretty Woman...

    19. Smith_erzZ

      @WoodEthan? Like "would" but "wood" Get it? 😂

    20. Greg Nicholas

      I got it ages ago, how did they not get that!!?

    21. Tom Evans

      As soon as RWD and Suzuki, my question was is it a Kei Car, if yes then I would have gone in deep with is it a Cappuccino!

    22. MetalVII

      7:22 Just watching Ethan’s reactions are priceless lol

    23. Davii Mai

      The only memorable Suzuki for me was the Cappuccino which I remembered from Initial D

    24. THATE46 KID

      sorry that i have to be that guy but i was screaming cappuccino

    25. Andy Freeman

      Can't wait to see someone on an electric scooter fall off and eat s**t

    26. Dan Barton

      14 questions in. I got cappuccino

    27. joe joe

      Confined space? Ha Ha, Ing-lund itself is now a confined space. (Nanny state gone wild).

    28. f4tpie

      So what does Grumblefilx (??) means?

    29. f4tpie

      As quite a traditionally manly activity and I like Smale’s Male or @smalesmale and questions to the page should be called Smale Mail.

    30. spyburn007

      I’m sure Gareth is a nice guy but can we get him back in the spanners and away from the mic please?

    31. Mathias Stuhl

      Finally alex got a car his size...

    32. Paul Yeung

      I knew it was a Cappuccino when Alex said yes it is a suzuki!!! I was LOLing how long it took them haha

    33. Dilan Senaratne

      I had my stolen car listed for sale in Dagenham by Romanians so this story is very accurate and one to beware off

    34. Ingens_Scherz

      I was born in Beaconsfield. And I overshare.

    35. rancidstain

      The podcasts 🥱 I love the channel but do the viewing figures not tell you guys something?

    36. Nyneg _

      25:30 Hey dan hit me up, we live near each other xD, is it bad that i recognized exactly where the photo was taken from?

    37. Michael Loach

      Back in the early '90's I was a salesman for a car company. An elderly, scruffy looking gent came in & was looking at a new 4X4. My fellow salesmen totally ignored him. I took an interest as I was young & eager & thought I could improve my sales technique just by talking to the man. To cut a long story short he bought the Landcruiser in cash & that's when I found out that Scotland did a £100 note! not judge! All the best...........


      P. S. I know Ethan loves being humble, eathen should go to a garden centre

    39. TheGolfHead

      As soon he said its a rwd suzuki, i instantly new it was a cappuccino lol

    40. n b

      I guessed Cappuchino by question 14

    41. S15 Life

      are we all gonna ignore the fact that these lot dont know what grande punto is?

    42. Lassitude

      "wear normal clothes to buy a car" Me: wears shorts to everything. Oof. :(

    43. Hambleton Showcase

      got Cappuccino straight away!!

    44. Bobby Roe

      Ethan does wood

    45. Andrew Bradley

      17:33 - VAG doesn't stand for Volkswagen Audi Group. The company is called Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft or VAG for short. Just saying.

    46. Fire Safety Stick

      Thanks for the shout out guys! Glad to be keeping Phil covered now, Alex. Would be great to have you guys come and see how these work and what they can do sometime!

    47. Lewis Keightley

      I knew the second you said a rear wheel drive Suzuki 😂

    48. Sam Wannell

      I was screaming cappuccino as soon as you said rwd suzuki!

    49. Aldi Berisha

      Rear wheel Suzuki and that smile is all we needed

    50. Tarell Edwards

      Smales wood fondling

    51. Corin Marston

      Guessed it from the point he said yes to Suzuki after saying yes to RWD too 🤣

    52. Ben Baker

      Ethan’s got wood. Surely it can’t be anything else.

    53. Reimo Zoober

      The moment you said it was a RWD Suzuki - but it is difficult to be a car nerd

    54. SUNDOWN 80


    55. William Stewart

      One old lady owner, only ever driven to church on Sundays. (The stupid Landrover has spent so much of its life broken that the milage is incredibly low) Genuine milage, runs well (We've just spent thousands getting it working again, please buy it before it breaks) Becoming very rare (running examples that is, immaculate broken examples are still very common) Recently had big money spent (just had a lot of money spent so we can sell it) Superior English engineering (inferior reliability) Genuine reason for sale (genuinely over it, this car is cursed) Come grab a bargain (come buy a lemon)

    56. Matt Carter

      I guessed Cappuccino as soon as you said Suzuki but only because you guys made a video on it.

    57. Gábor Farkas

      Will you make real car videos again? Car builds and tests as you use to do?

    58. Paul Burgess

      Bikers filtering, that’s the whole point in owning a bike isn’t it??? I don’t own/ride a bike, but I completely respect the love and joy of them 👍🏻

    59. Razor's Retro Game Shelf

      Who are these people who don't know what a Vauxhall Senator is? haha

    60. Jaximus

      Ethan’s softwood

    61. mark hood

      i would go to a car dealership, wearing what ever the hell i wanted to, picked up my most recent car in a full blown tracksuit as it happens. Still drove away in the car....silly really that people will look at your choice of clothing that day and assume your social stature or wealth small fathers friend was 19, going back 33 years ago, 2 men came onto the forecourt, he was a car sales man. Guys came in, old jeans, tee shirts...trainers....older guys in the forecourt where like, you can have them good luck getting a sale....he sold 12 ford seirras as a fleet sale. I dont know if my old man, told me this story, to make me think to never judge a book by its cover, or to never judge a person by their appearance (if so it worked for me) or if it actually happend...but it made me believe that everyone, regardless of looks, wealth, or anything else, deserves as much a chance as a guy strolling in with a suit my two pence for what its worth

    62. keio

      I guessed cappuccino as soon as you said japanese and rwd 🤣

    63. keio

      When my Cappuccino gets mentioned for a 2nd time 😀🤣

    64. Nathaniel Mathies

      I got Cappuccino. Not too many rear wheel drive Suzuki. I initially thought Vitarra but then when you said its not 4 or 6 cylinder I automatically thought 3 cylinder rear wheel drive. Cappuccino obvious answer.

    65. Nathaniel Mathies

      What the hell are jogging bottoms? Are you talking about trackie dacks?

    66. AndrewB

      Name ideas: Stuff with Wood by Ethan Ethan's Hard Knocks Wood is Good

    67. Lewis Tate

      Got it Cappuccino :)

    68. Reuben Langstone

      It should be called. Handling wood.

    69. Marc de

      Guessed Capacinno immediately said Suzuki as as it suits you sir!🤔😂

    70. Alex Prior

      Someone tried to pull that "headgasket failure" scam on a friend of mine. He also smelt a rat and got his wife and daughter to keep them talking whilst he checked his CCTV. You should have seen their faces when he showed them the footage of one of them pouring something in the exhaust and then my friend telling them that if they really wanted it, the price had now doubled. They went away empty handed.

    71. Pound Coin

      I had the same scam done to me and a friend when we were selling an Alpina, The story was exactly the same and I mean exactly the same and it was quite a scary experience although we never let the car go

    72. Abarth_ Alex_

      I got it in 9 questions

    73. L555 Corey

      For the Instagram handle it has to be Hammer and Smales for all woodwork things

    74. Kieran Nash

      Ethan's Handy Wood

    75. mitsubishi2301

      I guessed Suzuki Cappucino by about Question 8 😂

    76. Rb Clark

      I think Alex mat Watson and Gareth should do the next top gear ??

    77. Harry Pebody

      Romanians don't mind dipping the fingers in a pot of oil then saying the head gasket has gone

    78. Henning Schroth

      52:30 T- junction... the explanation is so confusing when you are used to left hand drive...

    79. Justin Hedrick

      Hold on if you accelerate hard from a light twice they’ll take your bike?? Wtf

    80. ton mtb comic

      If ethon can do it then anyone can lol

    81. Benji Renals

      The problem with being able to hear a bike coming while in your car, is that everyone else has to hear that bike for half a mile around.

    82. Andrew Johnson

      13.55 its called a Section 59 😂🤦‍♂️

    83. Scott

      After all that the guy still took cash surprised it wasn't all fake

    84. Yusuf Moosajee

      Ethan's would work?

    85. Paul C

      At not 4 or 6 pot question I was screaming cappuccino!

    86. Benji Renals

      Glad to hear Police in Warwickshire are trying to deal with dangerous driving, so many shitty boy racers around here.

    87. Joel Cairns

      liberty city theme while riding down the M1 lol

    88. Jamie H

      my uncle went to a Porsche dealership a couple years ago and began to look around and decided on a 911 and when he wanted for someone to offer their services so he could by the car they wouldn't go near him, so he went to Audi ttrs (manual). I'm not rich enough to own an Audi or porsche. Just a story.

    89. Not James May

      I got it

    90. RotaryBro

      Jeans are workwear typically used by construction workers and trades people. Joggers, slacks and shorts are leisure wear - you are going to buy a car in your leisure time. Makes sense to me.

    91. 6RadaR6

      Most idiots arent using the electric scooters on the roads, they're using them on pavements.

    92. Benjamin Williams

      Also, regarding electric scooters, only the schemes run by local councils in city centres are legal. The ones you buy yourself are still illegal to use in public places.

    93. Andrew Law

      Loving the Grinds my gears bits the most guys, keep on with the rage stuff it’s hilarious 😂. Let’s face it we all need to vent off and seeing you all join is awesome. Can’t wait for the next podcast 😁

    94. Benjamin Williams

      Wood with Ethan

    95. Ethan Bevan

      the cappuccino is just a knock off of a mazda MX5#

    96. ChaosPotato

      0:15 Jack was feeling it this time

    97. Mr. E

      Just looked on auto trader and there is a perodua Nippa on there right now!! Ethan, get it while you can.

    98. Gary G

      As soon as he said RWD and Suzuki, I guessed Cappucino, although I'm not sure that's something to be proud of.

    99. James Jones

      I knew it was going to be a cappuccino as soon as Suzuki was guessed !!

    100. Danial Noble

      This makes me want to see Jack / Gareth or Ethan to put the Instagram sticker on Phil
