    One of those most awesome, and tasteful sponsorships I've seen from anyone in a long while. Gotta love the awkward Shell name dropping and convo though, but Shell deserve it methinks.

    If we successfully try to scrap low emission zones and ulez in european cities (including round London and rest of the U.K), we should restore the scrapped old cars but do work on exhausts for today’s strict mot

    Does the definition of project car really stretch this far? It’s like he got a car from the scrappy and cut a few bits off 10 minutes before entering the competition. Beginning of the project is it? 😉

    Answer me this, are these cars truly loved, if left in such a terrible and poor state, for such a long period of time ? Not to mentioned this video didn't showcase any of the work to car, it's literally one long ad for shell.

    Unless your engine visibly suffers from engine knocking, premium petrol is a waste of money. The ability of the fuel to cope with higher compression has no benefit in cars that do not have the requirement. ITS A SCAM.

    Looks like half a job. Dents on wing with rust and wheels not sprayed silver either. Easy jobs to do & spoiling the car. Bad advert for shell methinks.

    It is much easier to pass inspection here in the US. Much much much easier. If your lights and signals work, windshield wipers, horn, tires still have some tread, brake on passenger side front wheel, you're usually good to go. Being on joking terms with your mechanic works wonders.

    Gotta say i don't mind any of your sponsors, except Shell. Why is she talking about knock sensors, ECU adjustments and Shell V Power in an 85 Polo with a carb? It's just jarring to see them in your videos- not a good fit for your brand at all. Surely Shell get enough advertising.....
