Rocko wants an electric Mini. Maybe. But will that real-world range of 105-110 miles driving before needing a recharge kill the idea?

Rocko has finally popped his M3 Cherry and driven Big Pimp’s incredible Dakar yellow E46. F80 drive already booked for next time!

HondaHeads rejoice – new Honda Integra coming in 2022 – no firm details yet, but there is a sneak pic. Will there be a Type R? And if so, will it get the FK8 Civic Type R 316bhp engine?

New Nissan Z coming – 3.0 Twin-turbo V6 – 400bhp+. Sadly no plans to come to UK, fingers crossed that changes.

John Delorean used to make Snow Cats under the Logan Machine Company name. Recognise those headlights?

What would we buy for £15k and keep forever? Hang your head in shame Rocko.

Will there be a Sold as Seen live? We did do a trial run some years back……

Trust me, when you're old and frail, Touareg will make sense!

Haven't listened to the podcast yet - but I'd love to know where you're getting a C63 estate for £15k? Or an E92 M3, for that matter! If you're after a Touraeg, just wait a year and get it for a tenner.

Note to self - listen to podcast before asking next time. So there's a C63 estate available for £13.5k and @Rocko still wants a fat Golf. Looking forward to hearing him get ripped to shreds on that one. https://media2.giphy.com/media/9o59Pga7BWlDrzWhhh/200.gif

He's on the wrong forum for sure, however I can recommend Local older people forums | Age UK

I thought the Cayenne and Q7 were the Elite versions of the Touareg? No?

Correct. Touaregs are for the commoners. Great cast as always gents.
