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.

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

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 gave it a try for 3 episodes and it only got worse!
Im very sad to say that im abandoning the show for good now. After all these years how can you change a winning concept just like that?
I have nothing against ant he's a good lad and a great mechanic but its the "new and improved" wheeler dealers that i cant stand.

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?

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

The show is much worse without him. I'm watching wheeler Dealers for almost a year after Edd China's departure and could see how it is worse now.
To Hell with Velocity Channel!

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

Ant is perhaps the finest restorer of collectible cars i have ever seen on television. Some of his work has achieved world record price at auction. Why on earth he has dumbed down and joined mike brewer who adds little or nothing to Wheeler Dealers is beyond me. The new show is sadly lacking in real hands on how to do it and is no longer on my favourites viewing list. I hope someone snaps up Ed Chinas skills and forms a real car restoration feast for us to watch.

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

Just watched a newish episode about the Mustang Mach 1 and it made me angry. Apparently all you need to do to restore bhp is fit an uprated exhaust. What rubbish. It was not there originally so how is it restoring the factory performance. Ant is un-informative telling us you tell by experience the car is running rich. The people working at home don't have the experience. Black sooty plugs - sure that's how he knows it's running rich. Ignition timing is a precise matter at a certain rpm. No mention of that because Ant is 'searching for the sweet spot'. What BS.

I do not want to watch a show where everything is repeated 3 times and nothing is informative. I want the nuts and bolts and less of the vanity

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 spent 50 years as a motor trader, in that time i had many many cars, but only one do i still regret selling. A Mercedes 220se cab 1963. Beats the Bentley Rolls and Lambo. All of which have gone through my hands.

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!
