The theory that Ethan is actually the most car guy out of all of them and for years he's been faking and now is slowing becoming what he has always been is interesting and I like to believe it.

Bruno is excellent entertainment. He is like the Inspector Clouseau of the mechanics. Well maybe a cross between Inspector Clouseau & Papa Lazarou.

The American remake of Clousea maybe, but definitely not the original one. Nothing can come close.

@Alexander Klein depends on what kind of shitbox it is. 9/10 times it isn’t worth to repair so bin it is the only option
Shona Prije 3 mjeseci
@ClumsyGarage The first thing I ever did was change bumpers & wheels. Then I did coilovers which I thought was a pretty big job at the time.. and then from that point, despite having never changed brakes or pads or any real mechanical work to a car.. I very boldly & ambitiously (and also very stupidly) decided to undergo a full restoration and engine swap. I got there eventually, and it taught me almost everything I needed to know about working on cars, but damn I really threw myself into the deep end by undertaking a full restoration as the 3rd thing I'd ever done with a car.

Crepitus Prije 3 mjeseci
clarckson hammond and may are insanely funny and have good commentary, however, the entire grand tour is overscripted filled with way too many cliches. was much better in slightly more relaxed environment.

Daniel Anthony
Daniel Anthony Prije 3 mjeseci
I love where this is going but I think the absolute pinnacle of Ethan's journey would be to enter him in some racing event in his Z3, with Alex mentoring him along the way, Jack providing the funny banter and camera shit.

these engines used to be used with a mod tuning chip that unlocked the limiter to 7200rpm making them sound real nice and making a bit more power

Whilst taking the piss out of Ethan is fun an' all, can we just take a moment to appreciate the progression from 'losing an Allen key down a spark plug hole' to 'wrenching and bleeding on own project car' in a little over a year? Yes, there is still some mechanical sympathy and confidence to come with practice, but good on you Ethan!
