Andrew's away this week, so Alan's joined by motoring journalist Richard Gooding to talk about some of the week's news and then reminisce about their trip to the SMMT Drive Day last week.
BMW Security Bugs
Chinese Infosec company Tencent's Keen Security Lab has logged and reported some weaknesses in certain BMWs. They're quite hard to exploit, but you can read more on The Register.
Hamburg's Diesel Crackdown
The banning of Euro 5 and newer diesel vehicles in Hamburg comes into force on Thursday, but it's not as radical as it sounds.
Zipcar's 300 EVs
The car sharing club is continuing its move towards lower-emission vehicles by adding 300 Volkswagen e-Golfs to their London Fleet.
Milk Floats are Back
Home delivery service Milk & More are introducing 200 StreetScooter electric delivery vehicles to replace diesel ones. They're claiming a 90% saving in fuel costs in the first month alone.
Tesla Model 3 Crash in Greece
A privately-owned Tesla Model 3 has crashed in Greece, but the pan-European infrastructure that was promised at the Model 3's launch seems conspicuously absent. Also, Alan ended up visiting Reddit. Ugh.
