      Everytime I watch “up to speed“ I think, God dammit James stop screaming at me. But after watching this I would have him only screaming at me.

      Wait, nevermind. This video is way old. My bad, you guys must not have had the budget for the scarface pile of cocaine you use for taping at this period.

      good video. The GTI is not only a legend but a motoring icon. Still having the feels for my 2006 Mk5 GTI which was sold in 2016. heck even the non car buffs know what a GTI is.

      You should do one for Cabriolets, it may not be very long, but it would still be nice for us owners. 😊 Also you should do one about the GLIs.

      I still have the brochure from when I attempted to buy one of those but the salesman and manager acted like I’m not worth their time. So I bought an Infiniti and been driving them ever since 🤷🏾‍♂️
