I like the video but did he say the engine was from the M240? Doesnt the M240 use a B58 vs the N55 from the M2?

He did. He's wrong. He also looks like a child.

The video was shit and yes he said it's a b58 well he said its from the M two four zero i.

It's like they let him out and gave him a half way decent car for once, because he's been stuck doing Yaris reviews his whole career.

To be a good review/journalist number 1 rule man is know the fukin product you're reviewing.

Good video to watch with the sound off.... Manual box certainly pulls, think he took off a chunk of the 2nd gear!

Carwow is not an independent review .. It is a carbroker trying to get you to buy cars using their service

The reviews are never going to be impartial
