    James and Richard spend the evening as 'scootermen'. Scootermen provide a service whereby they will drive you home in your own car if you have had too much to drink. They arrive on tiny scooters which can be folded away and placed in the boot of the car. By doing this, they get to drive different cars and test them at the same time. Whilst they do that, Jeremy gets to drive three hot hatchbacks: the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Renault Megane Sport and the Vauxhall Astra VXR. To make up for having to drive a Vauxhall, he also test-drives the new BMW M5. Chris Evans is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.moreless
