That's not a pretty thing is it.... expensive...but frikkin' huge and blobby.
I thought the same initially but I was sat next to one in the exact same colour in traffic the other day and it looked bloody lovely. It was really impressive in person and really makes the 6 series seem very dated now.
I want to like it. Honestly. It's that colour and all those bloody ///M badges dotted about though. Oh and a diesel. vomit

Best type of content from Archie for me, less of the larking around style content. Really hope this kind of content does well with his subscribers so we can get more. But I know it won't unfortunately. It would separate him from the rest. Felt like I was right there with him for that lap.

Probably a bit left field here but is there much scope for some of the YTers with high subscriber/view numbers to outsource the presenting to others, sort of like a TV production company might?

What I’m thinking is that many of them are incredibly annoying to watch/listen to but, despite this, the content they’re providing is obviously very popular.

So why not choose a less annoying presenter to front things whilst concentrating on the back office stuff they obviously excel at?

The bit you’re missing is that the consensus of opinion in here, regarding their annoyance level in this case, is pretty much poles apart with the general public who give them the views.

Shmee tried it in 2017 with a few videos presented pretty well by Becky and Ben. He obviously agreed it was a good idea. His audience didn't go for it.

I liked it too, much more than the usual drives around Fulham, Kings Rd, and Battersea shouting "Chaos!" with his sidekick TGE biggrin some of the YT'ers are doing slightly more, engaging content, Drive The World with STG looks great, and I am curious where Archie's joint purchase of a Suzuki Jimny takes him rolleyes much less cringe than the "which supercar shall I buy / wrap / stick an exhaust on smile

One thing that falls into the category of 'things that annoy me for no reason whatsoever', the amount of comments on Sams Drive The World videos begging to see his girlfriend. The comment section on YouTube is a strange place.

And he should never, ever give in to that or it's a recipe for disaster. Best to keep it about the cars and travel and avoid personal connections wherever possible - from experience!

Hello Tom, one would like to politely say that both you and your brother appear to hold Archie in somewhat low regard. He may be loath to tell you, however this is clearly evident in your online posts. In your most recent post, your brother appeared to be extremely stubborn and somewhat arrogant. One might even say moody? I don't wish to be offensive but may I ask that you are kinder? Yes, you are certainly much improved, than on prior occasions, but there is still room for improvement. I'm sure you wouldn't enjoy being mistreated by 2 brothers that were both bigger and stronger, in the way you mistreat Archie. He has been extremely patient with you for a long time now. I hope that you will be in agreement with me and accept that such ill mannered behaviour is simply uncalled for? Kindest regards innit.

Latest TGE video was awful, in fact towards the end he said he wanted to be done with reviewing the RS5 and go eat so even TGE can't stand his content lol. No idea why he doesn't do more content with his SV, people love Lambo related content and surely it'll give him more views. And whatever happen to his SV-J spec video? I remember he kept talking about it last month.

Because he’s scared of losing money on it by driving it further than a couple of miles along the road ?

Given that it’s 1*C today and the roads are covered in salt I probably wouldn’t be taking my SV (if I had one) our either. But I agree I’d like to see more of the SV on Tom’s channel - I’m sure there’s a happy medium!
