(Reading time: 2 - 3 minutes)

 

It's that time of the year again - we've been awarded third place in the best UK automotive blog awards by Car Money: the car finance ninjas. It is quite staggering what has changed in the last year, as we also achieved third place last year. The way we're going, we may well be in first place next year! 
It's been a rather busy couple of months, as you no doubt have noticed, now that we've retrieved our Mercedes-Benz from our former partner. We've also driven a fair few vehicles as well, including the Skoda Kamiq, the BMW 330e, and - obviously - the SsangYong Musso, which we used to tow the Mercedes back, and drop into Autosport International as well.
 
Coming up, we've got the Subaru e-Boxer XV, the Kia e-Niro, the Ford Ranger Raptor, and the Suzuki Ignis...and that's just the tip of the iceberg! 
However, we've also got a car show to go to at the London Olympia, as well as a restoration in the Classic Car and Restoration Show at the Birmingham NEC. 
 
Currently, Annabelle and I are both working on videos - I am putting together a video comparing the J and the K Astra, as well as a review for the 330e, a review for the Musso, and 30 years of premium luxury, watch the video above, where we compare the BMW 330e with the Mercedes W124 - it is quite staggering how advanced our Mercedes was for the time! Both retail for around £48,000.
 
What is coming up this month?  Well, our aim is to put a blog out probably twice a month, just to keep you updated on what we're doing. If you want to watch most of our content, why not go to YouTube and search Planet Auto and you'll find our latest videos. 
 
We have live broadcasts, cinematics, previews, walkabouts around the latest vehicles including the VW ID Buzz, and don't forget we also do put up some content with classic cars: for example the Peel P50. 
We're also going to be uploading a video of the Frisky and lots more show content will be unveiled over the coming weeks.
 
Our YouTube subscribers are flying, with 4,593 subscribers and it goes up daily...we are getting well over 500,000 minutes watched a month, which is around 138,000 views...everything is increasing, it really is!
Watch out for work on our Mk2 Golf, and our 230CE project is well underway. 
 
We've also got something coming up at Santa Pod as well with the Civic - more on that later..
There you go, that's January and February for you!
 
Thanks guys
