How good can a four-door 2022 Mini Cooper S really be? Benjamin chats about his experience with the compact hatch and how different it feels compared to the JCW droptop from a few weeks back. Sami then chats about one of his favorite cars of all time, the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, and how its legacy is quickly diminishing following the reveal of the new 2022 Mercedes-AMG SL, which now sounds more like a 911 than ever before.

Benjamin also brings up the Hummer H2 and how the brand could have avoided an untimely death if just a few other automakers jumped into the market of tough, rugged, big, SUVs, a theory that makes Sami sick. Finally, the pair discuss some ugly news over at Rivian, and how the EV startup has some serious concerns about its toxic corporate culture.
