TGE explains why he canceled his Mercedes A45S order

The Mercedes A45S is clearly a beautiful car – but YouTuber Thomas ‘TGE TV’ Exton has revealed that he’s made the decision to cancel his order on the German vehicle.

While taking a ride with race car driver Archie Hamilton in his edition of the A45S, TGE frequently mentioned how beautiful the car was, and Hamilton reiterated that it’s a really nice drive, especially as a daily if you’re looking for something to use on a regular basis.

That makes it all the more bizarre that TGE would decide to cancel his order, but he explained the exact reason in his March 21 YouTube video.

TGE already has some fantastic daily drivers – but has decided to cancel one he planned to add to the collection.

After being asked why he canceled by Hamilton, TGE said “Well, you said you wanted one, and I bolted myself up with various orders,” implying that he’s already got a few cars on the way and been a bit generous with his bank account.

He also said that he’s got a new Mini GP3 on the way and that it “makes no sense to have two fairly track-focused hot hatches coming,” presumably making the decision to hold on to the Mini – which he’s had on order for two years – instead of the Mercedes.

Archie says that his reasoning makes sense, especially if he’s got too many cars on order anyway which, for most, is quite a luxury reason for not buying another car.

Not many people would opt for a Mini over a Mercedes, but given the circumstances and the fact that he’s had the Mini on order for so long, TGE can’t be blamed for wanting to finally get his hands on it.

Needless to say, if he decides that he’s better off with the A45S over a Mini GP3, he’ll make the switch, but it seems he’s content with his decision, especially as the Mini works out a fair bit cheaper than the Merc.

The Mini costs around $45,000, while the Mercedes is closer to $60,000, so Exton may actually be making the best play here – though, it’ll be a shame not to see him showing off each.

TikTok star Nikita Crump has managed to pull off the incredible feat of living in her car, a 2012 Honda Civic, for over one year. Now, she has explained how she was able to pull it off in a new YouTube video.

Crump’s journey began in a video first uploaded on November 3, 2019 where she explained how she officially told her landlord she would be moving out of her home and into her car.

According to Crump, this wasn’t some impromptu decision and she had been spending a few months actively thinking about it before taking the plunge.

Nikita has been living in her car for over a year.

Despite having a nice house with affordable rent and good roommates, she felt moving into her car was something she “had to do.”

Since then, she has successfully spent a whole year living in her car and marked the anniversary of her first night by explaining how she is able to stay cool or warm at night.

In the backseat of her car, the YouTuber keeps a pillow and too fuzzy blankets which she uses to cover herself up.

Along with her sweatpants and sweatshirt, she is able to stay warm even in the winter months. However, occasionally she has to put a jacket on if it’s ever especially cold outside.

“In Northern California, a lot of the warmer days are still cool nights, so I’m fortunate that most nights throughout the year are totally bearable, but there’s totally been the occasion where it is hot, I am sweating and I wear as minimal clothing as I can,” she explained.

Luckily, she also has a rechargeable fan which can help her get through the night if need be despite only staying charged for one day.

In addition to just staying cool, the TikTok sensation also revealed she showers at the gym and keeps plenty of personal hygiene products inside her bag including shampoo, toothpaste, and deodorant to name a few.

Now, Crump is hitting the road and embarking on a two-month-long trip around the United States where she’ll be documenting her experiences.

The entertainer’s decision to live in her car has paid dividends, as she currently has over one million followers on TikTok.
