  • I do have to say i technically would give it to Alex as taxis are classed as "Private hire". fair play to all 3 of them though! love this content!

  • Tonight:

  • What's to stop Ethan and Jack getting an uber all the way? I'd give this one to Alex.

  • You should buy some cheap sports cars and take them from London to the Nurburgring and race them on track

  • Would love to see Alex, Jack and Ethan take an official uk driving test. With all the changes and standards now it would be Interesting to see who is actually the 'best' driver.

  • Love a B5.5 Passat, nearly 20 years on from being discontinued and they're still one of the best cars you can buy bang for buck. Comfortable, loads of room, handle "well enough", plenty of cars came equipped with multifunction steering wheels and cruise control, loads of torque from the PD which run for miles and can run on cooking oil...

  • I would love to see this Passat get a full interior and extrerior detail, these B5.5 are really nice to drive especially with that 1.9TDi engine.

  • Alex for the win. If you miss the train and bus. You have to get the next one not get an Uber boys!

  • "The train is gone and there's no bus"

  • Technically a taxi in the UK is "private hire" so I'm giving it Alex

  • Definitely either do another "trade up" series with the Passat or keep it and just absolutely rice the shit out of it

  • If the Uber counts as public transport you might as well use it for the whole journey, which makes the entire concept of public transport vs car superfluous. Alex won 100%.

  • Great episode! Nice to see my neck of the woods on such a good channel, too. The whole drive from Sheffield through Snake Pass and down into Glossop (fun stops right there) is a great experience every time.

  • Uber doesnt count imo. Either public transport failed you, or you failed at public transport. Whichever you prefer, Alex deserves the win.

  • Alex is the winner 100%. If an Uber is allowed then they could have just got in an Uber at the start. Plus it's a battle against the car, not car vs car.

  • Percy should be a trade up car now, keep flipping them and see what you can get up to by the end of the year
