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.

Well that's the end of another excellent car show. Edd was the saving grace of the show & held it together. Can't imagine 60 minutes of Brewer playing the idiot, good lord save us that. You only have to look what happened to Top Gear after the boys left or in one case, got the sack, a total disaster. Not worth switching the tv on to watch it. Why can't these tv companies get it right. That show Car SOS is another example. True enthusiast & talented mechanic Fuzz Townsend having to put up with that annoying clot & more to the point, we having to put up with him. Oh well I guess we'll have to suffer more of the American rubbish if we choose to watch it. Not me though.

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


Who the hell is Ant Anstead ?......

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

Another victim of it's own success then. Get rid of the playground buffoon Tim Shaw on Car SOS and stick Edd with Fuzz, bin the sob strories and expand it into 2x 1hr slots for each car. Then we can really get our teeth into each resto.
Oh, and make any comparisons or references to old / new TG and that Amazon thing punishable by flogging? It's boring and very predictable.

A worthy car for the top 10 classics from Wheeler Dealers. These cars have an amazing survival rate which is unlikely to be matched by any current models. These cars are sufficiently interesting to enjoy for the long term. I know since I purchased my Triumph Stag brand new in 1973 and I have never regretted keeping it. I also own a Mercedes SL - R230 which I regard has a future classic but I still adore my Triumph Stag. Read more

I was given a 1991 240 estate a few years ago in America. The owner couldn't start it! (it was a broken serpentine belt). Anyway I took the head off and gave it top end overhaul. I was amazed that the valves were hardly worn, 'just needing a quick lick with fine paste. The bores were like new, I could still see the honeing marks, and there was no 'lip at the top of the bore. This was on a engine with 249,000 miles on the clock! I fitted a new water pump, valve springs, and gently 'ported the inlets and cleaned up the combustion chambers to a mirror finish.. The other thing I had to replace were the door side pockets A guy came up to S.F. from L.A, to buy it when I came back to this multi cultural country!

This article nails it really. I chose a 2.0 Twinspark as my company car in 1998 and I bought it from the lease company because I loved it so much. I have bought other cars to replace it but I haven't been able to let it go - it is now almost 19 years old and has done 199k trouble free miles.
It is a work of art but the rust in the chassis means that it won't pass its MOT this year although the body work remains beautiful.Best car I have had and a classic of the future, no doubt Read more

As a Vauxhall dealer I had 5 of these Omegas, one after the other as my personal cars. They were brilliant, very comfortable seats and an exceptionally smooth ride.

The best version of the models I owned was an Elite with the 2.5 straight six BMW engine.
