Since the show went to Velocity in the US we usually have to wait a couple of months before it shows up on Discovery in the UK nooo

Brewer is still a muppet

In the "China days" they did a 986 Boxster with a seemingly borked auto(?) gearbox that they went down the "refurb the wheels black, do a couple of suspension joints and flip it" route

And Brewer's "trade your way to a supercar" ended with a slightly questionable black 996 cab with an aero wing

Be interesting to see how much they "invest" in a ~20 year old 996 as it has to be a little crusty all round at that age, unless its been loved (looks nice and original)....



BTW - I swear I no longer watch as many car resto programs as this post suggests! - too busy gardening and writing angry letters to the council about bin collection and pot holes! Grin

I read somewhere that Brewer runs a classic 911 so he can't be all bad, even if he is a bit of a plonker.

https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x75x90v watched this last night. Aimed at the scared American forum members who insist that the IMS is replaced, apart from that an interesting watch.

He has a 912. And a Volvo P1800 etc.

I know most people have a strong dislike, I dont mind him. I thought they way he handled Edd leaving wasnt great (but I can think of lots of things I have done and then regretted later). I know a couple of people who have met him and said he is a really nice guy......

Just watched it - if you have ever wondered about the IMS bearing then it it worth watching just to see Ant explain it really clearly

Wibb' - thanks for sharing; just watched that in my lunch hour.

Yes, i know its free - but the constant ads were annoying; it also pissed me off with their constant and unnecessary reference to the IMS..

Put that aside and it wasn't a bad episode

I quite like Wheeler Dealers. There are a lot of car shows, but Brewer does occasionally find a nice project for Edd or Ant. I met Edd at Beaulieu with his sofa and he was a lovely chap.

Enjoyed that. Yes, Mike can be a bit lively, but on the whole it's a pretty good watch. Whats the view in that particular IMS replacement?

I like Mike Brewer. Always have actually. And I love Wheeler Dealers. It’s fascinating watching how it’s evolved over the years.

Ant is really good too. Loved him on his previous show as well.

Wish Edd well though he seems to have lost his way. Liked him too.

And I like (most) of the Grand Tour. And Top Gear. And F1.

Not a big fan of sheep. Or echo chambers. And I can live without too much gammon.

What a time to be alive thumbsup

There's the risk that you're starving other engine components of (vital) oil which could create major problems down the line, especially when the engine is hot and the oil pressure low on tickover.

I don’t mind Mike, it’s show biz, let’s face it the prices they achieve no where covers the real costs. Remove the fluff it’s worth a watch for the spanering.

To be fair Mike and family are at most of the bigger shows giving a talk. He does have a 911sc in California.

I’m addicted to car SOS personally. Looking at the cars they restore, alot are scrap and really should be scrapped, credit they manage to bring them back, although I’d question how much filler is ok. Surprised
