  • Favourite story teller and on the turn 6 story that was amazing of him to do actually kind of got emotional listening to it

  • When he said he did car design for Mitsubishi I was waiting to see whether he was part of the problem or not. He worked on the 2g, the last good eclipse.

  • All these stories about getting tickets or out of them sound so '60 to me. For at least 15 years where I live all cop cars are equipped with electronic means of gathering evidence. Cameras and speed radars, front and back. Even if they stop you, they just check your license registration and tech check validity then remind you to check your email. Formally you have rights to appeal the ticket but it is way pointless to argue with video footage. No talking whatsoever. I live in eastern europes shithole by the way.

  • Lol. It wasn't insane that they let you drive without a helmet, its insane doing 170 without a full cage. Not sure the helmet helps you live at that speed without a cage and 5 point harness.

  • Puerto Rican meets German from Germoney: He (Emile) still does not know to date whether it was a compliment. That's exactly how them Germans built today's EU plus distorted the original idea of the Euro-Zone, which is basically the Reich but without tanks this time.

  • Why the hell would you bill this as the driver from top gears stories and not have a single story about top gear. Even is this guy was the greatest story teller with the greatest stories that the world has ever known I'd still be pissed off at being suckered into watching the video. SUPER CLICK BAITY TITLE. You are terrible people for lying like that and it makes me regret watching your videos in the past and will ensure that I don't watch them in the future.

  • I would have reacted the same way with that Dealership as he did. The fact that they lied to him and tried to quickly fix it, is a reflection on the lack of maturity of the management of that dealer. Those people should know better. Its always better to just give someone the bad news straight up than to try and weasel out of it.

  • People absolutely do not understand that there is NO replacement for the oem finish. They’re painted by 30 million dollar robots, E coated beforehand, all straight metal with very little if no filler at all. A respray and a blend isn’t good enough for a near new car. Especially car like that.
