What option are you talking about, the AP Racing brakes?

Reminds me of Jimi:

Hey Joe, where you goin' with that fob in your hand
Hey Joe, I said where you goin' with that fob in your hand

I'm going down to drive my new old lady
You know, I've bought her standin' around waiting for another man
I'm going down to drive my new old lady
You know, I've bought her standin' around waiting for another man
And that is too cool.

Hey Joe, I've heard you'll drift your woman now.
drift her now, now
I said I've heard you'll drift the old lady now,
You'll spin her with clouds from the ground

Yes I did, I drove her
You know, I caught her sideways messin' the roundabout.
Yes I did, I drove her
You know, I caught my old lady sliding around town
And I'll give her the beans
I'll WOT HER!



Cheers
Robin

Ah yes, I remember from the video now.
I was given the 2NH option for mine and it was going to be a March delivery either way. I decided to opt out anyway.

Likewise and being from the UK also I want to see him build up his YouTube subscriber base over the coming years. Hopefully he will be on Top Gear one day alongside Chris Harris

I don't expect much from these 'influencers' but I love to see different vehicles showcased, as I don't have an opportunity to try them out myself, so I live vicariously through their experiences and feedback..

The 'Achilles Heel' of his videos is he doesn't really step on his cars, he babies them.. So it's just about features and his overall daily driving experience.. He ain't no Chris Harris..

No, but he's better than most Youtubers, and certainly a lot better than Parker (VV).

Better, and those daily driving experiences are as important for DDs I love (almost) every video he publishes and he's a very down to earth guy.

I watched this and loved the introduction of Royal Steering Wheels at the end. 200 to get my steering wheel covered in alcantara, with a white / silver strip at the top will save a lot of money. Still, I am really tempted to get the M Performance steering wheel with rev counter #gimmick ??

I actually think what his videos bring is something that the street review and track view that everybody else does. I think him talking about it as a daily car and features ...etc is a good thing as it more relatable. That's why I subscribed to his channel. We need both the sides the The Harris and The joe

That's true, the street is really where these cars are going to reside for most, if not all of their lives, so that perspective is important..

If you want daily driver's break down for a vehicle and all some highlight of its nuances, I suggest you also follow Doug DeMuro's pages..

He didn't get the M2C yet to but it's one review I'm actually looking forward to..

Like the spec of the car, but one thing I'm not 100% on is the 'debadging' of the rear of the car when there are still M2 badges on the side and front. I'd either want all of the badges or none of them at all.

One upshot is if they wrap an original wheel, it's likely that it maintains the heating capability. Going with an M Perfomance wheel disables the steering wheel heat.

That's a good point. Still, I opted out of the heated steering wheel. Heated seats - yes, heated steering wheel - no for me.

We don't need anything heat in Saudi, if there was a cooling option though that would be a best seller lol
