Pretty much agree w/ all their criticisms, esp. Jacob's about the squeaky paddle shifters (shouldn't be an issue once the aluminum paddle shifters from the G70 make their way up to the G90); and ha, one could say that Yuri is a Genesis-apologist.

In terms of design, don't think the G90 looks much like the S Class (a bit generic - yes); w/ regard to the taillights, while there is a vague resemblance to the S Class, they look more like the ones on the Kia Opirus.

Also have to keep in mind that the EQ900 is offered in more luxurious trims in SK and for something that is more on par w/ the S Class for interior appointment, need something like the EQ900L Noble Klasse.

Toothpick with waterproof grease or silicon lube on the 2 paddles pivot points completely eliminates the noise.

Shouldn’t have to do it, and aluminum or cast iron is the way to go; but really who are we kidding, if there was tracking on the use of the slap shifters it would be right up there with AM radio and the amount of times people put gloves in the glove box.

Jakub and Yuri are great. Love their detailed and well thought out reviews. Not to mention top quality videography and editing.
Heck, I'll watch them even if the cars suck. Surprised they don't have more views.

I dunno I found Jakub a little annoying, though not as annoying as DeMuro.
