The Straight Pipes

Anyone watch these guys youtube reviews? They're two kids having fun reviewing cars. They're goofy and care more about looks and tech than we do, but the reviews are entertaining and more informative than a lot of the lame-ass reviews out there.

Here's their 2018 Forerunner review.

OK, now I like these guys even more.

These are two kids who generally care more about paint colors and tail light looks over performance and drivers feel. But they trashed BMW 240i over its steering.

"I've never talked about on-center feel. But this is the first car that has the incorrect, annoying on-center feel."

"And Yuri doesn't know anything about handling." "If I noticed it... it's bad."

"I would highly recommend an M2 because of the steering feel of this 240i"

I feel vindicated.

They seem like kids to me. Maybe I'm just getting old.
