Do they occasionally blur out the side windows deliberately - e.g. when going past the petrol station?
30mph speedlimit - 7 minutes

Looks like it. So perverting the course of justice as well as dangerous driving and speeding...

Probably wouldn't stick but would be worth slapping it on just to give them a twitchy bum for a while.

Regardless of the driving, that R33 is a beast.

In the same way that old Top Gear edited the speedo's to show 55 despite being at the top end of 4th gear or more.

Shmee and Harry are very subtle in changing camera angles when the speedo is going to go above the limit, Harry is more obviously speeding because he generally goes for another gear or 2 after cutting away from the speedo already doing 60.

It’s not perverting the course of justice by any stretch of the imagination though is it?!

No, that wasn't meant to be serious post. If Top Gear can do it on national TV I doubt any YouTuber would get done for the same thing!

Important point, Top Gear edited the speedo to 55 in the USA no?

I am fairly confident their rules are different there because many YTers are quite blatant about their speeds. Suspect their law may involve having to actually catch you in the act. Anyone who has been there will know they don't even like speed cameras as a nation - invasion of privacy or so they tell me!

I think it was on a US special and they do have very different laws. The fact that laser jammers and other kit to prevent getting caught is mostly legal and easily available shows they don't like cameras. The confusing part is that each state has its own laws on what is or isn't allowed.

He’s said on video that he drove cars on the road before he even had a licence. Doubt this will stop him.

If he gets caught he off to prison. I highly doubt anyone sane would risk it.

During the recent Mr JWW podcast he mentioned selling his Bugatti. I imagine this upcoming case was the catalyst for moving it on!

He trades in cars. They’re all ‘mine’.

After someone mentioned that there was more to Carwow than drag races I watched some of Matt Watson's stuff, I like him. Really liked the stuff he did on his own 996. Similar to Jethro Bovingdon, who has one and did a video on it. Must be the journalists choice!

The drag races with Yianni are the complete opposite on my enjoyment scale!

Looks like TGE, as well as being a genius designer of parking bay storage solutions, is also a time traveller! We know how he likes to claim to be ‘Londons Hardest Worker’, and I think in that vein, in his latest vlog, he is claiming to be filming at 02.00am Monday. However, halfway through the video, you see the Merc AMG GT’s clocks showing 21.49 Tuesday 01/14/2020. He also gets confused at the video end, stating ‘tomorrow’ to be ‘Wednesday’, not Tuesday (easy mistake if it’s really Tuesday, not Monday). There might be an innocent explanation for the time/date being out of sync, (should be sync’d by GPS, right?). Yet so far he’s not offered an explanation to those asking in his comments section. Stranger still, anyone asking, gets their question removed…

Anyways, so his latest garage queen is somehow a Merc AMG GT Roadster. So the 458 Spider gets bought and sold, with no videos in between (as far as I can see). Found out he’d had it 3 months by searching his Instagram, and finding this. This also, coincidently, shows where he most likely got the idea of the storage box on stilts. Yes, that ‘solution’ has been around for years, if not decades. Already being used in TGE’s communal parking bays by his neighbours, long before he claimed to invent it.
