That thing sounds good. Never realized how good it actually sounds. Makes me anxious for the M8.

Am I the only one who is clever enough to know which turn signal is on without looking at the actual turn signal stalk? Like, I don't forget something I did a few seconds ago. Self-centering stalks are fine to use.

It's definitely nice to have but you need to switch from heat to cool over the screen?
Really??
There was no room to put it next to it like here
I have it on mine car

i don't really get why so many people like his reviews. he's not bad by any means and is better than many other in his field, but still. he can't keep my attention.

The most annoying presenter for me. Can't watch more than a minute.

I only watch if the car he's featuring is special. CGT. F40. New Ford GT. GT3 RS. For this I am appreciative.

Else it's just way too microwave instameal brochure level for me.

Savagegeese channel is much better, but his access to special vehicles not quite there yet. I'm sure it'll be tough for him until he makes the move to SoCal like Jay Leno Jr with the KingJames hairline.

The old design was excellent I've never understood his complaints.

This car just seems really underwhelming to me at its price point. It's handsome but not THAT good looking, its interior is luxurious but not THAT exciting to look at.

The AMG GT, 911 Carrera S, and LC500 are all the same price and are far more unique/interesting cars.

Agreed, I can watch almost anything, but this is cool, did I say cool, I mean really cool! Also the test drive is pieced together.

Doug’s format it pretty much the same for all cars. Intro, background/overview, then quirks and features. This portion takes up most of the video, and goes far more in-depth than the brochures do. Then it’s the test drive. Then the “Doug Score”.

What’s funny is that Doug had access to higher end cars, when he was on the East Coast. And his Dubai vids, as well as his Testarossa, Diablo, Ferrari 512TR vs Porsche 911 Turbo, M2, are some of his best vids. Too bad he wasn’t allowed to drive the Enzo Ferrari. Yet, he’s allowed to drive the Bugattis, Ferrari F40, and
Porsche 959. Go figure.

Now, the knock off Doug Demuro, Hoovies, is annoying. His whole shtick is a rip off of Tavarish from Jalopnik fame.

I have a separate button on my F13 too. Getting into the car and just hitting the button is so much easier. BMW seriously expects me to press a button then play around in a menu for 10 seconds? That’s a massive step back. It could be ok if you could change the default action on either side of a temperature I guess. But honestly just give me another button!!!!

I really don't care about reviews...there are so many YouTubers now.
The thing I like about Doug is that he goes through all the features in the car which no one else does. It's v interesting to know what's in those cars and those tiny details on the cars with purpose.
All other talk about 0-60...understeer/oversteer and so on.
