I remember a Toyota salesman telling me they were pitching the car at buyers who would like a boxter. I just shook my head and walked out the showroom at such boll*cks. Read more

I have one tweaked with a turbo to 238bhp. It is boll*cks........The dogs!!!. Have toured all round Europe in it with the wife. No problems with luggage space when you're used to touring on a motorbike. D.

Imagine there's no air bags.
It's easy if you try.
No ABS below us.
And no backup cameras too....

What a way to treat a Phantom! Lennon must have been inspired to do this while at the Indian ashram of the Veryrichi Lotsa Muni Yogi Bear. Hope the (now old) folk who bought his records and whistled his tunes back in the day are happy about the way he spent at least some of the money...

Masterpiece ... I wonder if it is the original paint ....or like Harrison's MINI it has been re-done ..I hope not , but Americans tend to not appreciate the patina of age / originality...

I learnt in a Nova Antibes. The dreadful gearchange compared to a Mk 3 Escort put me off Vauxhall for a very long time. Read more

Never a good car especially if you hit anything at all .About as safe as a box of Eggs.

Has a Avenger. The sealed-beam headlamps were always failing, Got rid because of this & got a nice Corolla. Read more

Bought one brand new, the valves burnt out at 6000 miles, what a disaster

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.......

A complete nonsense to get rid of Ed, he's the only reason I watch the show, crazy crazy decision by somebody who clearly doesn't have a clue why the show is sutch a success .

It's certainly not Mike Brewer

As a car enthusiast and professional mechanic losing Edd will be a death knell to WD. The only reason I watched the show was to see edd explain a part and how to repair it. Knowledge for the masses of car enthusiasts out there.

In some of the shows when Mike got in his face about something he had absolutely no knowledge of, it would make me cringe. Had that be me. Mike would have a 24" Cresent wrench between his eyes.

Good luck Edd on one mechanic to another.

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 !!

I had one as a company demo when I worked in VW dealer back in 2001. Took me ages to persuade our Sales Manager that running one of these over a similarly priced and better spec Polo GTI would be a good idea. I loved it. It was expensive, from memory Air-Con was an extra £900+. Climate control was standard on the Polo which also had the same engine and 5dr option.

Alloy body panels, bonnet and doors from memory, and xenon headlights which had a shutter device for High Beam made the car slightly more unique than the Polo Gti. We sold it quite quickly as there where not many stock cars about.

Very fond memory's of blatting about on country lanes in Shropshire where my parents lived at the time.

Great, if expensive, little pocket rocket. Read more

I owned 0.2% of all the ones registered in the UK - i.e. 2! Sold them because the CO2 was too high and I needed more space. But they've gone up in price since. You can now buy Japanese imports in the UK.
