Has James ever confirmed which of "his" cars he actually owned and which he had "the ownership of" i.e. for example they his dads cars and he borrowed them for the internet?

RS6? F12? 458? Range Rover etc?

Maybe that will be a question on the next podcast

Well this sums up the DMO fan base nicely. Made a comment about the video where DMO and Mist were doing over 200mph on the M1 while stoned and this gem came to his rescue.

The finale of Sorted went up on Rob Ferretti's channel yesterday. A good series, although seemed to be hampered by delays which appear to be down to editing and production.

Looks like there's going to be a Season 2, and it does look like they've taken the criticism on board too so hopefully it'll actually have a consistent release schedule!

Poor old Phil at morethancars has literally done his nuts on his pista & SV.

Based on previous videos he paid 330k for Tom’s SV and put 80k in, now listed with dean for 265k - pretty much wiping all his equity there,
His pista he paid 370k for and put 150k in. Now up at 269k. So another 100k plus loss.

JBR aren’t underwriting and while he’s got 500k plus already on the tab underwriters are obviously not keen to extend so he’s had to cancel his tributo and can’t get his new Mclaren underwritten.

Obviously don’t know his personal circumstances but expecting to have 1.5 million quid of car finance was probably something he needed to have in place before throwing order forms around like confetti

What makes zero sense to me is the fact he’s done the equivalent of a solid F12 paid for cash in losses and he’s still trying to sign up for more.
His SV is an amazing spec and has the rare gloss carbon option but unfortunately for Phil he overpaid but that said I think his SV will sell for around 240'ish.

He could have got more but biggest issue with his SV is the miles are too high and it's been driven hard which he documented on YT. You don't daily drive SV's and SVJ's unless you're Rana and you don't give a F about resale.

'By paying a deposit on this ticket you accept that the organiser has the right to change the date or cancel the event with no notice...Covid blah blah....your place in the event is only guaranteed with he final payment.....deposits and instalments are non-refundable' are the types of things that people won't have read when they put their money down for these events.

It's been a good series but, if anything, shows none of the competing cars were actually 'sorted' they even said that in the heats the overall winner posted a laptime below what a stock version of that car would do....

Season Two definitely needs to have tests to weed out unreliable cars and encourage milder states of tune that might actually end up with a final of working vehicles.

They won’t have read that type of stuff as the site is devoid of any terms or conditions.

And I’d massively undercalculated the volume of sales as id missed that most of the prices were just first instalments

With all the payments it’s well over £800000 in sales

That's the thing, there are absolutely no terms and conditions anywhere on the website.

I even stuck a comment on his IG asking where are the T&Cs and what happens in the event of a covid cancellation and my comment was deleted. This will end well rofl

Yep, complete coincidence that the Performante + Aventador SV turn up at the same time.

Nuts eh, what some people will do to get IG famous. He won't be the only one that takes a bath.

Guess he thought it was a "business plan" to become another S(c)hmee.

Ricky has just got himself a 720S, seems fighting with Chavs in a muddy field is quite lucrative.

IMO Phill doesn't come across to me that he is trying to be IG famous, hindsight is a wonderful thing. He probably could have sold those cars sooner if we weren't still in lockdown with no actual idea when life will return to normal. These are real life problems, I for one am glad he is being open about his woes (hardly seems like the type of thing someone trying to give followers the impression he leads an IG lifestyle would do).

I find it really interesting that he sold his cars to get the McLaren, I'm really glad he is but after everything that happened in the past I want to know the psychology behind this desire.

Christ on a bike. It's a recipe for disaster - an easy way to get rid of unwanted money.

Wow, I should start shooting videos of me working on my VX220 and not actually achieving anything but a bad back. Like Hubnut but more calamitous.

Just measuring the garage for an Enzo.

He's pumping his competitions, 3000 tickets @ £12 is £36k, give away a 59 plate M3 worth worth 20k so £16k gross profit. Couple of those a month and you're laughing.
