    I really hope Penfold has gone and bought himself something ridiculous. He's been working pretty hard at this since he was a teen so good for him.

    And yeah, it just seems exploitative. You're being paid to do videos on cars that people want to see, while knowing nothing about them, talking more about your ever-so-interesting life, and not at all putting out quality content like Chris Harris and many other YouTubers. They seem to lure in the teenagers, the social-media generation. The car part is irrelevant, and if they stopped the whole "car-vlogger" or whatever, and were just a vlogger, I'd have no problem.

    I'll agree on Shmee, he's fairly annoying and as you say big headed at times, but he does know what he's on about. He has done some very good and detailed walk around & drive videos.

    I quite enjoy Spencer Berke, he is pretty down to earth and vlogs about everything going on his life, not just the cool cars he gets to work with at O'Gara, he does it purely for the passion of making videos, and he is one of the few vloggers I actually follow. I have been quite enjoying B is for Build, and Speed Academy on YT, there is quite a few other channels I follow that have already been mentioned in here, I don't really go to websites, I just enjoy watching car videos mainly.

    Basically what I had on mind, but was unable to write down because I struggle with expressing my thoughts on something in a somewhat read-able form, ha.

    I have not really seen other car tubers other than Salmon and Shmee. I like the Mexican a lot. A bit douchey, but really funny (if you're into genital jokes :oook:) and it is clear that they are not doing it for ad revenues.

    BTW, seems like there is another young British woman doing this thing. Hell, she's even worse than the first one. What an annoying Instagram ho she is.:fp2:

    I guess if you post a lot of sponsored duckface selfies, stanced dubs and whatnot, you can just simply upload two vids and not even in a month bring 16k thirsty subscribers to your yard.



    P.S.: I bet that Sam (?) did it just for the bj she gave him in exhange for his help, haha.

    Sigh.

    Not only is he rather condescending to the country of romania, 'you just wouldn't believe these cars would be here' = 'why are they in this hellhole lololololol'.

    He walks around a room with like 30 classic Rolls Royces and Bentleys and Mercedes and spends no time on it, but he stops talking about a classic Mercedes to say how nice the 458 Aperta looks from the rear. He almost skipped a classic Bugatti, he skipped the classic Lancias. And then at the end he's like 'LETS GO BACK TO THE LAFERRARI'.

    He's been in multiple Laferraris, driven them, they're in so many of his videos. Even if he isn't a fan of the classic stuff, why not just admit that? I don't think very highly of him after watching this video.

    painful to watch. *unsubscribed*

    Thought this would be interest for you, even though it contains (also) the German language. The vid is from JP performance who I mentioned on the first page. They were in Miami at one guy's home. Well, home, he lives in a church. Tens of cars downstairs, upstairs his living room with baby dolls. Very interesting lifestyle. :lol:

    Interesting video, that guy is just living his life how he wants to live it and who are we to judge him I suppose, 1/2 of the cars are nice but not sure that church or its vehicles are high on my wishlist :p

    One of my favourite youtube-car-peoples. His reviews are beyond in depth, most videos are 20-40 minutes long with different segments. He'll go into the garage with his friend and look at the technical aspects of each car. Beautiful cinematography, very fair and unbiased reviews.

    If you want your blood to boil beyond belief you have to watch vehicle virgins, he is hands down the most annoying car YouTuber you'll ever see in your life. Watched a video today and I had to vent my anger somewhere :lol:

    Also movlogs an apparent car guy with a mustang and huracan, rides in bugattis but thinks a 488 has a v10 engine... Need I say more.

    I don't actually find Parker to be that annoying, he does some good reviews, he certainly isn't my favourite car YouTuber, but I don't hate him.

    I imagine a fair few people have heard of him but I've only just recently started watching his videos, MotoManTV :) I can't imagine he is to everyone's taste but I quite like him.

    Seen his vids before, he's pretty decent. :nods:

    If you want to know where the original Fast and Furious movie comes from and what was the inspiration, read this article.

    Meanwhile in London...

    Instagram

    How stupid does one have to be to act like this? My God! :fp2:

    1. It's just an Aventador. A car.
    2. There are millions of photos on the Internet. Most of them better than yours.
    3. There are nicer things in the city than a yellow car.
    4. Don't walk on the road.
    5. If you've never seen one in flesh, take the precious chance to look at it thru your own eyeballs.

    Just as bad if not worse than that in Casino Square, but I guess the speed people go through that and the reputation of it means it's not as bad.

    In London? It's just rather unnecessary isn't it. Shmee said he doesn't carspot in London anymore because of the reputation carspotters have and how hated they are by the locals. Struggling to see how they can fix the issue though?

    The spotters kinda ruined the experience for me in Monaco. Casino Square was crazy, yeah, but that was 4 years ago, so I guess it wasn't as bad as today.

    Take the cameras and phones off their hands.

    but daaaaad muh followers :cry:

    I despise most YouTubers and I find it funny how some people are saying things about people like Shhhmee but seemingly idolise others who do the same or are even worse! I don't get how all their apparel and affiliate links can go first and foremost before proper credits as how many people actually click to see more of the description? Ah wait, just answered my own question there.

    So naturally I don't have many recommendations at all but two of my favourite automotive channels I can stand are:
