I`M afraid the mouth almighty mike spoils the show with his verbal diarrhea typical car sales krapp the only thing he has going for him is his gob.If he was given a problem on a vehical he would not know where to start.Edd has all the ability in the world and is educated unlike the gnome mike.HE makes out he is a great guy at finding cars in the us but doesn`t let on all the help he gets over there.I`v bought dozens of vehicals from the us without any ones help and it take a lot of time and money.when i watched the show and he starts to mouth off i would press the mute button on the remote untill edd came on.Everyone i know loves to watch edd but thinks mike is over the top.

Fake episode. As if the old owner sells it and then buys it back and basically pays 12k in labour to fix a sump leak, turbo and bolt a new CC on plus new rims and an in needed wing? Was a set up episode with the old designer and third wing planned all along. These are the types of things EC didn’t want to do, but he is likely unable to say anything because of NDC.

Was expecting the show to be a Turd…….Ant is a different personality to Ed, BUT Props to him, I think they got rid of the wrong half of the old Duo…Should have Ant and Ed doing a show.

Third spoiler on a cosworth escort? OMG! Its a crime!

I would agree, except in the case where the original designer asks you to do it. In that case I think it was a great idea. New guy aced it too, I like him as much as Ed.

Funny that Edd left the show because velocity wanted to take out the workshop pieces but the first one was back to the old ways and no mike trying to fix things like in the last series. Hope Edd comes back with his own show.

Really going to miss Ed China, new guy is ok though. The mouthy shyster who runs the show is annoying as hell!
