Time to retire the show? Or will Ant take it to a whole new level? Read more

Going to america was a huge mistake, i think mike got greedy with the lure of big dollar's, but the show should of stayed in the UK, with european cars with which the british viewer's relate too. Edd was by far the star of the show, i do like Mike but also find him a bit arrogant, unfortunately like Top Gear this is probably the beginning of end, what with firstly the second rate american shows and now Edd leavong.

Absolutely spot on. I watch Wheeler Dealers for the mechanics,not Mike. If Velocity want to reduce the time showing the mechanics of the cars then I truly believe that this is the beginning of the end for Wheeler Dealers. People are'nt going to want to sit and watch Mike Brewer for the majority of the show. Hopefully when viewing figures start to drop,this is just to save money remember, maybe Velocity might change their minds,I doubt it.
Changing a winning formula usually means its not a good thing to do,but.......

I love both of them (Mike and Edd), but obviously the reason I watch the show is the works done by Edd... I had the feeling that I won't see Wheeler Dealers in the future... very sad decision from Velocity

Less workshop action! Might as well watch gas monkeys... The title said it all, Wheeler Dealers
Wheeling and dealing, little money, a good dose of cheeky bargaining, good skill on the tools. A bit of profit to show for your work, and the knowledge a car that would be scrapped, is good for another few years... I miss that in the later shows. My favourite was the first mini, now Mike looks like a business man and there's less of Edd... Limit the budget to about 4K for everything, make sure Mike and Ant have a plan, then send Mike away to get parts etc. Let him see the finished product only...

I shan't watch this show again - everyone agrees Edd's part was the most interesting. Mind you I never believed their 'costs' as they never included any of his time which sometimes ran to days and days & gave a very unrealistic idea of the total cost of their projects. Also some of the 'buyers' of the refurbed vehicles seemed a bit suspect & it all seemed a bit of a set up. But if you took it all with a pinch of salt, it was great fun & good entertainment. Won't be the same.

Wheeler Dealers without Edd is like stockings without suspenders, it'll never hold up! Huge opportunity for another network to snap him up. Edd was the only reason I watched WD.

Really hoping Ed will get his own show, cmon Ed show em how it should be done

Mike is a loveable goofball. Edd actually taught us things. He was right to move on.

MBAs are ruining our TV car shows. They killed Overhaulin. I suspect Edd's departure will have a negative impact on the brand. I hope at least as the money men obviously don't understand WHY we watch these shows. I for one will be tuning out as a little Mike goes a long long way.

Hi John...I need some advice please. I have a 1984 Peugeot 309 GL in very good shape apart from I have lost the high beam lights, ( flash), the flash works when the side lights are on but not when main beam is on, do I need to replace the whole stalk or is it fixable without having to do that? Cheers Moira Reed.

Sad to hear Edd is to leave Wheeler Dealers, but like Edd I felt going 'State-side' has changed the 'feel' of the series, taking it off in a direction I for one was fast beginning to lose interest in. Wheeler Dealers was at its best covering our own native and European car industries which is where most of the interest this side of the pond is found. Good luck to him, hats-off for retaining integrity which is seldom the case nowadays, and with a bit of luck the BBC will entice him to Top Gear and eventually Ant too! I might even start watching TG again 'cos it certainly ain't working as it is at the moment! Read more

I,m sure with his proven and obvious skills he could get backing to start the program again under his own direction.

Times are tough for most folk. More and more will now need to maintain and repair there own motor cars. This is where you can really come to the front and enhance an already fine reputation. We want to learn, we need to know how to fix our 'carriages' Don't miss this great opportunity. Leave the fast talk to the fast buck Yanks. They don't fix things they throw them away and pollute our planet. We British don't do that. I know, my car is 29 years old and doing fine.

Keep batting on Edd. Good Engineers always make it work.
