I actually felt pretty sorry for him. He does so much extremely tedious work which sometimes goes to shit, and that was the closest we've seen to a rage-quit.

I don't recall exactly which video last week. One of these.

The paint (and German paint shops) rant in the beginning is fantastic.

I've seen better paint work done by DIYers using spray cans in a garage.

I know exactly where he's coming from with the rant on paint shops. I have had a very difficult time finding good paint shops as well. The problem is that the good ones I've found charge way too much, like 14,000 euro for a full respray too much.

I’ve read of a place with paint booths that were having intermittent problems like this because wind from a different direction was blowing exhaust from a room silicon was being used in adhesives into the intake of the paint room.

Watching Richard Hammond's Smallest Cog workshop getting built last year and Harry Metcalfe's various restoration projects (Jag, Lancia, etc.) in paint has really made me appreciate what goes into making a good paint shop.

I think it's great that Alpina reached out to him and offered to help him out!

The Bovensiepen brothers are good people.

But the company is annoyingly difficult at times in terms of aftersales and customer support. My dealer & I were waiting for 1.5 months for an answer regarding my alloy wheels only to receive a one-sentence email back.

Bump, as I was wondering if anyone else here watched him. After watching virtually any of his videos I'm compelled to go do something to my car to "restore" it even more.

Apparently Cammisa didn't do any video content with him, hopefully Sreten has some footage? These guys GOT to do something together, it would be epic. Both have well-developed senses of humor and are both VERY smart car guys. Their collaboration would no doubt be epic..

"Coooming up. Professional idiot on the workbench."

And the Carmudgeons podcast episode "Fixing Broken Cars In The Alps" has a lot to say about Sreten and the E30.
