A slightly outdated list of video equipment:

Become unnecessarily jealous of me on Instagram:
I don't really see the point in a Facebook page but have one anyway:

The audio in this video was recorded with in-ear binaural microphones. If you wear headphones, your mind won't be blown, but it will go, "woah."

I'm also the producer for the Winding Road YouTube Channel:

Here on TheTopher, I'm known for putting a camera on my face and driving cars. Whether it's about any of my personal cars or reviews on weekly test vehicles, the goal is to give you an idea of what a certain car is like to drive or live with. Most of my videos are filmed in POV, with my clothes on, and (for like the 5th time) with in-ear binaural audio. Which, if I haven't made it clear yet, is why you should wear headphones. Because of the whole "woah" factor. It's there, trust me. Try it, you'll see! Or don't. As long as you whitelist me on your adblocker I'm okay with whatever you do or don't do with regards to headphone usage. That is all. Oh and I guess you should also probably subscribe. Why are you still reading this, you should be watching the video. With headphones! Hah, had to sneak that in there one more time. Later!

      Correction - transmission is a 10-speed, no idea why my mouth said 6-speed in this review. Lexus hasn't had a 6-speed performance offering in ages.

      +Jay S. To get that high gas milage rating with a n/a high compression v8. Prob at least 3-4 gears are overdrive gears.

      I believe Lexus uses those 4 extra gears in between the 6 regular ones to provide a smoother power delivery. At least it sounds like it.

      The cockpit looks a bit cramped if you are larger than average sized.
