Be interesting to hear what people who have bought a CS think of that "review"

99% of these "bloggers" just repeat what the serious journos have already reported.

To be quite honest, that review was crap.Outside temps would be 1-2 degrees and bet his rear tyres were not over 15 degrees,heaven knows why he was complaining not having cup 2s.
On a positive note,the car sounded great with no active sound.

It’s a good review. Question on the price but acknowledges that it sits in a niche.
I think it sounds and looks fabulous. And those wheels....

When I say good I mean ‘positive’. It wasn’t the most robust analysis of the car’s capabilities.

AFAIK he's a BMW fanboy and for him to acknowledge any downsides at all

ĎMy modified M140i is as good as an M4í clearly has no idea what heís on about. Slated the M3/4 last year on steering feel vs an M140i. Iíve both and the M models are a massive step above in steering feel. I like the videos but some comments made me cringe.

Watched a few of his videos , repeated what respected journos say, only a fanboy of the ones he’s got and when they’re gone changes his mind and likes the ones he used to hate

Exactly that. I think you can say the same about pretty much all the bloggers doing car reviews on youtube.

And the journos just follow Chris Harris. I think Chris Harris is the only one who actually expresses an opinion of his own without worrying about what others have said.

I like Joe and I think he always gives a fair assessment, he raised some valid points as well in that review. He’s much better than the idiots like SOL and Archie.

Likewise.

Joe is one of only a couple of vloggers I will watch.

Ask him about his comment regarding the £25k uplift from CP to CS, though. Iím sure he said in the vid that the carbon bonnet accounted for most of it.

Agree with this. My M140i is a great (and bloody fast) car but it's no M4/M3/M2 with regard to steering/handling.

I enjoyed it and thought he made some fair points. I.e it’s not worth it’s sticker price.

I'm noticing a pattern here, all the people that don't like Joe in this thread have BMW M2's. Is it because of a certain in depth review he did of a 240i v M2?
