Iconic Ionic: Sold as Seen Podcast Episode 9

17 Replies

In this episode of RMS Motoring’s Sold as Seen Podcast, Andy has the Hyundai Ioniq 5 on road test, so EVs, costs and ownership are the order of the day.  Craig drops a bomb.  Gary gets us excited about our upcoming trip to the Classic Car Show at the NEC, and has us slightly less excited about the new Range Rover launch.  Andy talks us through seeing the Lotus Emira in Birmingham, experiencing the fuel crises and being embedded in the Cotswolds, land of Clarkson, Metcalfe and Castle Combe Circuit.  And we talk Bond Cars with the release of No Time To Die.

Just listened to the latest podcast. Another great episode. I agree the NEC show is awesome, don’t think I’m gonna make it to this years but hopefully I’ll be there again in 2022. Last time I went, we had dinner in Asha’s. The Indian restaurant owned by the Bollywood star. (The song “Brim full of Asha” is about her.) I had the best curry of my life! If you’re staying overnight in Birmingham, I would highly recommend.

Epic Indian tip. @Gaz get it booked! Thanks for the feedback folks, thinking of taking the recorder to Brum for a pod on the road!

We did try and convince him to stay ........... offered money, favours, Tayto, Cooper even tried a lapdance, but he was having none of it | Last time I went, we had dinner in Asha’s.

Booked for the Fri night! Cheers for the tip. I had booked another Indian for us but it was more street food type stuff so happy to change.

To be clear, there was no lap dance. I'd have stayed.

Just listened this morning when out for a walk, good stuff lads and again to inflate the celeb status of @Rocko, he will be missed. As a fellow typically grumpy shite it was good to have that balance!
