    Anyone here been keeping up to date with Salomondrin's channel?

    I've warmed to him and a lot of his content but it's becoming increasingly apparent that there might be some sort of backhanded deal being done between him and Merc in LA to get airtime on his channel. It's getting a bit crazy now I don't think he's being transparent about it at all which is annoying. They basically turn up at the dealer and take whatever car they want for the day....... I think being suspicious of this agreement is okay.

    No, but I've read the comments and lots of kids (literally kids) are saying he's not part of that club anymore. Same on Instagram. It's interesting that people care so much about some group of people in LA. Looks like the group is just selling merch now.

    I guess if he wants the GT R and the new hyper car from Mercedes, he'll have to make some advertisement disguised as vlogs/"reviews."

    I'd ran away from him if I were his gf; this is, like, level 100 cringe

    Shmeeeeee is everywhere. I rarely watch TV but the couple of times I have recently he's been on it, doing some sort of car show (on a Sky channel maybe?). The only thing I like about him is the fact he owns a Mini. But even then he seems a bit clueless about it.

    been meaning to post this guy's channel. Although it is in Italian, the content is interesting and I enjoy watching them. A number of them have English subtitles. Just uploaded an EB110 vid today.

    Yaaas some drama in the world of automotive youtube: Vehicle Virgins trashed my RX-7 and I guess Im okay with it. - YouTube

    Rob Dahm is in the Rob Ferretti / Matt Farah / Jalop / TheDrive kind of group, whereas Vehicle Virgins manages to be a more annoying Shmee if that is possible.

    Where does all the negativity towards Shmee come from? I think his content is okay, reviews many cars, has a nice garage, is a bit of a weird guy but content wise, he has one of the best automotive YouTube channels if you ask me.
    Complaints about his clothing style or him looking like arse or his accent is annoying or something, those are things that you can't help and even if he acknowledges it himself, it's brave to still film yourself and appearing online.

    I'm just not sure i'll ever warm to someone who has their nickname embroidered on every single piece of clothing they own. I'm sure he's an alright guy but I just think his content isn't worth watching for a few reasons. A lot of it comes down to how he and a few other vloggers act as if they're really providing an amazing life changing experience to viewers, 'this is for you' etc, it's not, you're getting rich off of it, don't sugar coat it.

    Also worth looking at is exactly what @Milli was highlighting in the chatbox a few days back, there are a few suspicious things surrounding the Hurucan Superformante 'ring lap time: BLOG: Did Lambo that laptime? | BridgeToGantry.com

    This is true though. I mean, I've seen in the comments on YT or FB that some people feel "close to owning his cars" but it'll never be a real experience, it's just somebody who, indeed, has an above average life and doesn't hesitate to show that. However, his reviews are pretty good, you can see his passion for cars in his reviews, and of course we all know that the money is a good reason to keep this up, but don't all YouTubers?

    New automotive podcast out by some US comedian guy who buys cars for Seinfeld, it was featured on TST's podcast a few weeks ago, I've listened to the first 3 podcasts and they're pretty decent, he tends to talk over people/interrupt them which is a bit annoying but other than that it's worth listening to if you're looking for another automotive podcast. It's called Spike's Car Radio.
