    The 'on the road' series was quite good fun, although their budget was a lot more than previous series.

    Enjoyed the last one when they refurbed a Bentley!!

    One of my favourite shows, and being a fan of Mike Brewer i was quiet pleased with myself when he patted me on the shoulder at the classic car show a couple of years back...sad but true that i am still regarding that as one of my all time best celebrity encounters.

    Though I did have a nice talk to Mark Evans a few years ago.

    the thing is...he says about buying a car for so much and doing it up and then selling it at a good profit yet Ed has spent a week fixing it up:keule:

    Love the intergrale...saw three at donny park and one spun off and had some serious damage.

    I quite enjoy Wheeler Dealers, and I think Ed China is great.

    I think they should detail the exact amount of time that Ed spends doing the car up as well......as its usually the Labour which costs most when doing a car up !

    They are having a 'Wheeler Dealer' all-day on Discovery Realtime today, if anyone's interested.

    The latest series has just kicked off from 6pm with the German 280SL...

    I pay £21 per month for my Sky (I don't get movies or Sport)...for Sport I go round the local pub....
    The fee charged by Sky is well worth it, particularly all the repeats and I reckon 20 minutes of adverts every hour - bargain that !

    Or do like I do, and get a sky+ box off ebay, and watch everything after the event and zip through the adverts.

    A sky1 show take <45minutes without the ads!!!

    And the new series of '24' starts on 12th Jan...

    Yes! I watched the 280SL one and really enjoyed it so I'm recording the 911 one tonight. Not bothered about the Esprit or Land Rover ones (and I'm running out of disk space!)
