Thank you for the amazing positive reaction to the first and subsequent episodes of the CarExpert podcast!

Our first episode with the three founders, Alborz, Tony and Paul, was so well received that a number of you asked us to keep going with a series of podcast episodes with the three of us recounting stories from our 15 years together.

This episode is all about our first 'Full Throttle' trip. The European trip was fully funded by, the then broke, us, where we lined up drives of the Bugatti Veyron, a pair of Lamborghinis and a James Bond Aston Martin. 

As always, the trip was full of adventures, learning from mistakes and being typical Australians in a foreign country.

If you'd like to see the images from our first trip, head to the CarExpert website where we've uploaded a full gallery. Don't hate us for what you see! Also please note this episode contains a language warning.
