    It occurred to me that If I had a car which needed some costly work doing, could I save money by selling the thing to the Wheeler Dealers and buy it back when the work was done.

    I assume this is tongue-in-cheek.
    You would obviously be quids in as Mike n Ed consistently fail to take labour and transport costs into account........

    But you'd have to come into contact with Mike Brewer.

    I feel sorry for Ed. He never seems to get the recognition he deserves from Mike The Snakeoil Salesman.

    It is as it ever was.
    As an ex technician myself, generally you find that Sales persons only ever moan about every penny they have to spend on a car they have just sold and have no concept of the work that goes into getting a used car into good saleable shape.

    I'm glad it isn't just me!

    To be fair, the script probably does demand that he plays the part of a pantomime car salesman...

    After around 5 minutes of watching him, I feel like putting a baseball bat through the TV

    My PC with its custom watercooled loop and tri sli setup is worth almost as much as the missus EP2, so the computer is safe. :Wink:

    Is this now the 'Mike Brewer appreciation thread'?

    He used to do local radio adverts here for the Mazda dealership...'Mike Brewer approved' I think was the strapline...:Smile:
