He might be the best reviewer on YouTube, I love his thoughts with so many years of experience and the perspective that he brings.

Anyone notice he stated BMW told him a CSL is coming.....

As expected the best review yet on the G80/82.
As the owner of Evo back when car magazines were king, Harry gave a leg up to the likes of Henry Catchpole, Chris Harris, Richard Meadon, Steve Sutcliff etc.
He has forgotten more than the majority of youtubers will ever know.

I remember reading my first Evo mag on a trip to UK when I was 20. I was shocked at the contrast in writing skills compared to most American counterparts.

Even more amazing was the kind of cars reviewed in the long term section in which Harry chronicled his own personal Zonda on a monthly basis.

Nway I was hooked to say the least and ended up subscribing locally on a monthly basis when it was like $12-15/mag here.

Absolutely, the quality of the stuff that comes out of the UK is night and day difference compared to the US. Meanwhile, people still listen to people like Matt Farah like he's relevant compared to these guys

I love Harry's eclectic taste in cars and really enjoy his videos, especially the restoration ones.

P.S. If you guys want a good way to waste a couple of hours, listen to "Collecting Cars" videos/Podcasts on Youtube. It's absolutely fascinating listening to these guys talk about cars, and it's also extremely relatable.

Sweeeet! Would love a CSL

Would prefer a G81, but I'd take the CSL

Totally agree, i pay no attention to any review from the US or Oz for that matter. All the relevant experts are based in Europe & the UK in particular.

because he has no ego. a pure gentleman car guy. always detailed. I agree probably the best reviewer. sometimes he is dry however the context's very good. Evo back in the day was like reading short stories.

He makes great points, why would anyone be upset by weight or AWD, if you don't like it get the M2 CS

BMW offers more options than any other company

I concur not to mention the style/quality of the photography. I still have classic issues of EVO; CAR; Performance Car; and of course BMW Car (E39 M5 Intro).

They were/are expensive but unmatched by Car and Driver/Road & Track/Motortrend. Although recently Road & Track has made an effort to increase the quality of their content. But still not on equal footing with the Euro Mags.

Honorable mention to “Bimmer” magazine as well.
