    I really enjoyed listening to this guy's review. He addressed the same questions, concerns, gripes and head scratchers that I've been wondering about the MKV. I'm 6'2 so that was on point as well as the engine/exhaust sound. He had a neutral approach to his review about the overall identity and the reason why Toyota did what they did with joint ventures. We need more vids like this.

    Since he couldn't disclose more details, I'm definitely looking forward to his full review once the embargo has expired.

    A nice review from Roman and he really tried his best with the embargo in place.

    Have to wait for the complete review after the lift. Should be an interesting one.

    Clear and addresses some doubts people have been voicing out, and also gave us some nice sound clips.

    he has always bee a rather poor reviewer anyways as a man that requires such a wide turn where he crosses into the opposing lane should be fired from every sports car review from here on out...he is comparing "fun" but the only "fun" thing he refers to is driving fast in a straight line and doing burnouts in open lots. yeah, he really got into the fine details...

    Nope. Why get mad about what everyone has seen/known for more than half a year now. Anyone still complaining about that is just _______ .

    I find TFL to be very unbiased. Let's be honest, while they did try pay homage to a lot of Toyota/Lexus designs, you can't help but be honest that it has a lot of BMW flair into it. But to me, I love that because BMW interiors are a pleasure to be in. They have one of the best ergonomics and in terms of design, it's great. I adore iDrive (I think Toyota should use that as their main infotainment system) and their switchgear is solid. It could have been better, for god damn sure. But you know what? If I forget some of the poor elements that this interior has, it isn't the absolute worst ever. It's genuinely not that bad and feels unique.

    IDC about the BMW bits, I wanted to know actual driving details on the Supra..Roman is unbiased because he is clueless half the time..he gets so many things wrong -.- I would barely trust his advice on dad jokes...the Supra should have been reviewed by Nathan

    I personally don't think that's a fair judgement because he's way less of a bumbling fool than Chris Harris, superspeedersrob, Vehicle Virgins and Doug Demuro. As well as the other retards that grace the internet.

    ..what is wrong with Chris? he can actually drive very well unlike the rest of those fools you mentioned plus he correctly understands car mechanics, he knows what enthusiasts want and he ain't afraid to tell the automakers what he thinks. Regardless, if you don't think Roman is the biggest fool out of all of them with his grandma turning abilities, then we ain't gonna come to an agreement xD

    I 100% agree with your other points about Chris. But he's way too much of a sensationalist and if he never understands something, he continues to ramble on like the biggest idiot out there. Case in point, the whining that it's JUST a BMW, it has ZERO Japanese soul and to not listen to the engineers and their story. Shit like that makes me want to tell him to fuck off.
