  • It would be interesting to get an e36 compact and race it against an mx5 nb

  • Mr2

  • Too many problems for it to still be considered cool- shouldve gone for the audi

  • I'am moving to UK and that my challenge right now :D

  • Out of the two I would have picked the Audi. I say this as an SW20 MR2 Turbo owner that wouldn't give it up for the world. However, this really wasn't the correct spec SW20(the 3SGE with a proper manual would've been far better) and with missing parts like the airbox there might be a fair bit of finding parts on a relatively rare car. The Audi seemed pretty sorted other than some bodywork and out of the two sellers the lady seemed like the nicer one. "I know what I got and it's more than I'm selling the car for" instantly turns me off from buying a car.

  • Why is alex growing a hitler mustache?

  • Mr2

  • Why did you not go for the Audi 80 I think that it would be a whole lot better than that Toyota MR2 it looks like it's about too fall apart.

  • They will be some sorta dealer

  • Shoulda got the audi :(

  • “Almost took my nose off”😂😂

  • my god i got so happy when he said 2.8l v6 i have one it would be nice to see one on car throttle 5:56

  • When yall had 2 cars lined up THEN didnt show which one you decided I flipped off my phone for that one

  • "Let's go"! Says Vin Diesel as he slams the MR2 into "D" and creeps slowly away. "Shit if only I had bought an Audi".

  • Congratulations you made the wrong choice! How you can not buy this classic jem,especially at that price level?

  • I've just bought 2007 limited jeep commander 5.7 v8 hemi trail rated going to use it for winter

  • in a few months or no time people we definitely be kicking themselves regret for missing the opportunity to buy or invest in cryptocurrency.

    • @Rodrigo Rodeo These are all robots.

    • cool insight, I appreciate an opportunity to get such knowledge on how to make money, I look forward to trading in bitcoin and making it an alternative source of income.

    • Do you know how much is good for a start?

    • Hello

    • I remember friends calling me crazy when I started but I now shut up them with my four figure weekly returned.

  • I would never buy this 💩 you should listen to yourself not Instagram....

  • I would to love to the car throttle lads race the DDE boys think that would be a great video

  • Keen

  • Love this videos please post more of them

  • That celica in the US would be $10k

  • If you had posted on insta that the MR2 was an automatic only a handful of people would have voted for it. On the plus side now I get to laugh when you investigate to see just how much of a dog you guys have bought. Someone bring me some popcorn

  • astra g turbo

  • Oh good never seen an mr2 on carthrottle before

  • 8:27 If you're using Chrome hold Ctrl+LShift and press T to re-open last closed tab, keep pressing T to open more!

  • Love the MR2, one car I've always wanted. I hate Facebook marketplace and had same as you guys, completely different price in the description to the actual ad.... WHY!! 😂

  • Always love your videos keep up the good work lads

  • MR2 is good but the Audi is legend

  • 12:44 Had a good chin wank??

  • What are some of the best cars under 4k, in uk?

  • Honestly I am really glad you chose the MR2 as I really like the bodystyle and uniqueness compared to the audi. Hope to see it soon!

  • bad choice :(

  • Buy the black and yellow 206! My uncle used to own it. I always wanted it but the timing didn’t line up 😭❤️

  • I'd have gone for the 80 personally. The MR2 is too much of a shit box for my liking.

  • I have the same coffee table. Nice choice. Love your vids

  • Audi

  • Should have bought the audi

  • I've missed these kind of videos, always full of entertainment!

  • Disgusting decision. Audi 80 much cooler

  • I was a little bit excited until I saw this 13:32

  • I'm more interested in the MR2 as it seems to have more work to do on it and hope to see what you tackle and if you can then sell for a profit...!

  • Apparently Facebook limits the price on cars you list

  • What plebs voted the mr2 over the audi !

  • Audi all day

  • I was under the impression that you guys would each be buying one and putting them head to head against each other in challenges. Top gear style

  • What happened to the mr2 MK3?

  • We voted for a cool car, not a shitbox...

  • I would've voted for the audi personally

  • Everybody please name there daily driver money no issue Me.... rs6 avant nardo grey

  • I lived in a dystopian street which had the coolest grass areas. There was a guy who had a red Audi 80, he maintained it and drove it every day for his own reasons. Between 2009-2019 he drove it, every day he would wash it, and his caravan. One morning he was riding his bicycle naked, in circles. He left the gas on while his wife was in bed. Not sure what happened to him but last Christmas, the Audi was still there. I think it was a 92. His house, car and caravan were in perfect condition.

  • I wish these would turn up at my house to buy my car, be nice meeting you’s but honestly….. I think you’re the only ones who would purchase it 😂

  • How can you think a Audi 80 is cool its a grannys car

    • JDM fanboy can't even understand the Audi 80?

  • K swap Mr2 soon

  • Real Top Gear challenge vibes from this

  • Did the poll mention that the mr2 was an auto?

  • Stop lowballing people.

  • Imagine car throttle and Grand tour collab, damn sounds like a dream

  • Its an automatic transmission 🤦

  • should’ve gone for the audi. meh. what a shame

  • Did anyone else spot car throttle Stig loitering outside West Kebab?

  • i just love how most people find their dream cars in dealerships or something similar, whilst i find my dream cars on ebay and Facebook marketplace

  • MR2 was really predictable, should have got the Audi!

  • You should buy my Golf MK5 1.9 tdi 😄

  • Whats the difference between and pound and a quid?

  • Should of got the 80, that mr2 is a shit heap

  • I was wondering what is Alex's job. I mean besides this obviously. He seems to know a lot of things to check on a used car. I mean mechanical as well as other usual stuff people do during long term use.

  • Anyone sane would have walked away after that test drive. Plus... Multipla? You wanted cool, and you didn't buy the Multipla?

  • You guys need to do a topgear, all buy a cheap car and travel from Portsmouth to Scotland or something and see who gets there first without breaking down

  • Next challenge should be finding and buying one of those Max Power cars within a certain budget

  • The dog end of the car market is a hateful, frustrating place. Whilst haggling before one has seen the car is a little uncouth, after watching the viewing it was more than legit since that MR2 is a bit of a mess. Maybe the airbox could have been slapped on before the test drive but I doubt a few miles of no filtration does that much harm anyway. Interesting to see how it turns out and please don't spent a fortune on it and pass it off as a decent project, do it all shoestring like what someone who isn't doing it as a game would do!

  • Honda civic ep2 k20a3 150bhp few hundred they go for

  • Problem with Facebook marketplace is it won't let you advertise at a price if it (Facebook) deems it (the price)too expensive, in comparison to other similar cars based purely on make/models

  • Dead

  • I respect Alex a lot more now I know we both have the same phone case 👍

  • This should have been a case where you take an internet poll, then conclude the internet doesn't know what it's talking about and get the Audi 80.

  • audi cooler by far

  • Should have got the 80

  • She goes. Say no more! Nudge nudge wink wink.

  • Bag of nails deffo should of gone with the Audi

  • Hope u do an Audi special soon

  • The Audi would have been so nice...Plus, the lady sounded so nice and genuine!

  • MR2 is nice and all, but it's been done to death. The audi would have been perfect, and the owner, she seemed a a dear lady who was quite honest about the state of the car. It would have been a great classic German build.

  • 80 is the cooler choice

  • Personally I see the Citroen C2 almost like kind of a Toyota Yaris or Honda Jazz. I could see that being a fun little car with a few mods

  • Should have got the audi lol

  • The white audi 80 s reamed pimp. You missed out boyos

  • You should do a wheeler dealer on the mr2 fix her up and sell her on series

  • Do you guys get free food from West kebab? 😉

  • everyday more tired of ethan man knows shit bout cars

  • Let’s all be honest here the Audi is much cooler

  • Damn you 'grammers, I wanted to see the Audi 😭

  • Shit thats a 6k$ usd mr2 in california

  • People have to use preposterous prices on Marketplace because FB has certain values it thinks cars should be at... If you try listing outside of what they think it should be, it won't allow you - so you need to put in a bogus number and put the real price in the description. It's annoying, but FB is at fault (most of the time).

  • idk about you but i'd buy that 3rd Gen Camaro in a jiff, V6 or V8 i wanna turbo a V6 3rd Gen so bad

  • idk mate if i were u guys i would visit both seller to see the car condition itself. feel bad for the audi lady tho.

  • I'm glad you picked the MR2 🔥

  • Facebook marketplace (stupidly) values your car, when advertising, so you cant always put a price you want. Which is why you'll have the £1234/random prices

  • You ARE allowed to just say "no thanks" after the test drive proves it to be a shed...

  • Should of bought the audi not that bag of dog poo
