I know a lady who owns one. Hideously unreliable, though that is mostly the stupid automatic gearbox rather than the pluriel bits. Read more

It was fragile when new.Even worse today.It will only be a classic for its unreliable roof system.

John Doneghan

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 have a mechanical background in 2 other trades, for me and other mech heads Ed's repairs were a fix to us, a surprise to that Velocity were allowed to muscle in on the production of the show, maybe Mike & Ed could have run the show themselves with their own company................mike's comments were out of order, he has put about a third of the effort into the show, would not surprise me if Mike orchestrated the split with Velocity.......the show is heading for the bin !!

Nice selection of kit but how about stocking rubber bumpers to "modernize" pre 1974 MGB's? Read more

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

There's a big shortage of talent in the UK with the courage to tell rubbish management to shove it. What's more have the bottle to take the ensuing consequences. That's why, wherever you look, management stinks in the UK .
More so in America.
Ant Anstead will surely tick all the boxes. But, the established watchable partnerships tend to stick. Kirsty and Phil. Jeremy and Co.
are examples.
I didn't watch top gear because of motors alone, the same with location. Who wants to look in estate agents windows for light relief?
Ed'll turn up somewhere. If he doesn't, good luck in a well earned retirement.
As I've mentioned elsewhere, he's welcome to come and put the dashboard back in my P38 while I video him on my moby. I can work Final Cut Pro, Avid and Premier as good as anyone.

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

always liked the show. apart from the b***** music we are English ,not American we don't need stupid drumming while someone is talking, I was watching one show and while and while edd was talking some idiot of a producer decided to get my attention even more intense by getting some m**** to hit a cast iron drain pipe with a large hammer!!! correct me if I'm wrong but where does that help? In the end I have now stopped watching the show. Ruined by idiot American m****s who have the affront to call themselves producers, yea of d*****.

Ed china was what made this show so watchable he was so skilled not just a mouthpiece

The real reason why Edd left the show is that he is poverty stricken. Mikes valuation of the 'restored' cars NEVER took account of Edds labour costs, making the whole show a total sham. "Oi bort the mota for 2300, spent 600 on bits and shook hands on it for 3400, a nice little earner" Total b******* from start to finish. Edd is well out of it. He's a talented bloke but Mike sometimes made him look bad. Good luck Edd in any new PROFITABLE venture that you take on. Geoff, aka wheelwrite

Yeah right but you will be talking to yourself as we won't be watching Read more

I quite agree.Ant is an Insufferably smug annoying presenter. It's been the one program I've genuinely looked forward to for years. Ed was right, it's the spannering part of the show that is by far the most interesting. Its amazing that tv producers can be so out of touch with their audience?

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!
