Pinched from Whytar (but I did apologise at least Rolling Eyes ) as I thought it may get/deserved a bigger audience here.

Grin

I know that the fashion and music scene are supposed to be a year or two behind over there, I guess it goes for motors too!

I thought this looks like good vid to watch and clicked play.

Up popped "Schmee" and I thought Oh no.

Then I thought I was being unreasonable, biassed, narrow-minded even. Give the bloke a chance.

Then, within the first minute of his mouth opening out came the words "straight six".

Does the word "schmee" have a slang meaning? If not I'd like to offer as a possible definition "the snot and other body fluid which dodges the handkerchief and hits the hand or the clothes when someone sneezes".

I really want to watch this video but I can't now. My loss I'm sure.

I know first customer deliveries of the GT3RS only began about 2 months ago, and the 911R... well, that's a 'late' 2016 car for Oz.
And these limited run cars are delivered in such few numbers down under that accessibility to a 'press car' is nigh on impossible, so these journo's have to wait until private cars get borrowed, or demand wanes. One of the liabilities of living at the 'ass end' of the world.

On the plus-side, we have some fantasic, uncluttered driving roads that you can actually exploit.

There was a series of videos from last year during a euro trip when he collected this car from Porsche in Germany. He's not really good at reviewing cars other than pointing his camera at various bits on the car generally.

He has said that if he could buy one from Porsche he would do in a heartbeat. He also owns a GT4 currently.

He certainly makes money doing what he does though. He has a McLaren 675LT, a Ferrari FF as well and he's got a 675LT Spider on order which he intends to keep as well as the Coupe.

Shmee.. can't stand to see his videos, they would be OK if he didn't insist on putting his face on them, he makes my skin crawl. He has a face for radio and the charisma of a mung bean.
I've tried to watch a few of his videos over the years but it's like nails on a blackboard, then he points the camera at his face and I have to click the close button.

He ran in front of me outside Goodwood a couple of years ago, I wonder if the world would of been a better place if I'd just squeezed the accelerator a little more, I may have even got a Nobel prize for services to humanity.

To be fair to the fella he seems to have made a living out of "broadcasting". I would agree that his videos would be sort of watchable if he wasnt in them but i think you have to remember most of his audience isnt old enough to drive yet. Very Happy

His plummy voice does grate but he's a genuine petrolhead so that makes him all right in my book but a few minutes is enough.

His recent vids on the trip to Cars and Coffee Brescia and Top Marques Monaco with other Youtubers Mr JWW (GT3), Supercars Of London (AMG GTS), Seen Through Glass (F-Type R) and a few others have been fairly interesting. Also seeing the vids from the other guys perspective too.

Mr JWW seems about the least annoying with Sam from Seen Through Glass needing a good beating!!

Here are some of the videos and I can assure you they will annoy you!

The Charles Craven 996/997 I and II comparison at Silverstone has to be one of the more interesting ones. ( link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_2699594801&feature=iv&src_vid=Eqa6q95ayk8&v=JSh5XEBf83E ) which I will not post again as I am sure it will be somewhere in the fifteen pages. I also loved the 996RSR in Liverpool video and am sure that shortly afterwards it was found sat on bricks but hey ho.

Pip

He posted on here until a few people were rude to him and he stopped.
