I Saved over $10,000 Buying 2 Prior "Theft Recovery" Cars at Auction! Was it worth it?

Here is the major Garage Update for 2022! Also, we bought a Cadillac Escalade ESV and a BMW Alpina B7 both sight unseen, both prior Theft Recovery cars that were previously stolen! Both came with some major issues, but were they worth the risk???

  1. based on a recomendation from Sam I purchased some much needed auto parts for my BMW Z4 from FCP Euro . What a mistake and what a nightmare . I will never consider any recomendation from Sam again .

  2. After researching the history of great assets such as real estate, dividend-paying stocks, gold, oil, and other commodities, Ive come to the conclusion that most excellent assets never come down to the price you want to acquire them at. Simply get the ones you can afford right now.

  3. This is hands-down, the best automotive channel on YT (sorry Hoovie). Sam, you always put out the best-produced videos. Glad the Porsche engine is holding up. We often overlook things like production values in these types of channels, but these are really great. Makes watching them so much better. Keep up the great work, Sam!

  4. You have to love when your car has a catastrophic engine failure. Then a year later the oil housing explodes and your turbo dies at the same time. Thanks, chevy… (save the gods I bought a warranty on the thing)

  5. Of course the price of trucks that are five or six years old with big V-8 engines in them is trending down now. I have a 09 Yukon Denali with a 6.2 L and had catastrophic failure about eight months ago. My truck was down for almost 6 months and it went through four different mechanics. It quite literally destroyed my life and my company. It's not completely to blame I guess some of the blame as my own. I could've got an F250 and over paid thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars but actually now that I think of it I probably would've been in a better situation had I done so. For some reason I kept putting my faith in this new mechanic that was confident and hoped I would get my truck back in a timely matter. Didn't happen. Idk. Chin up everyone and keep pushing forward.
    Good luck to you

  6. Hell yah I want to see a r8 clutch job done by the cheapest heck guy on tube. That's what makes your content interesting . Keep up the good heck job and prove those Ferrari prices wrong.

  7. Seen a bunch of audis including my own have that same cluctch pedal issue, i refilled it pumped the air out and was ok for a few days havbt tried since bjt recon its the heat whatever has happened

  8. I came here to learn how to invest after listening to a guy on radio talk about the importance of investing and how he made $960,000 in 4 months from $160k, somehow this video has helped shed light on some things, but I'm still confused, I'm a newbie and I'm open to ideas.

  9. Send the Porsche – it's what it was built for, and it will answer your question once and for all. Track day at north of 4k RPM lap after lap is where these cars are meant to live.
    (Or don't, but please don't sell it without disclosing this fix…)
