If you watched Wheeler Dealers and you enjoyed Edd's mechanic tips, you will really enjoy this show, the first episode just came out :

I really liked it.

Is the new Wheeler Dealer mechanic even real? He was using metric on an old Ford Ranchero. Often works unsafe as well. Seems more like an actor

I stopped watching Wheeler Dealers when Edd left. Mike Brewer's shenanigans were just window dressing for me until we got to see Edd get down to the "greasy bits". I guess Mike thinks the show is all about him. I'll subscribe to Edd's channel.

I thought i wouldn't like the new guy on WD but actually do. It's different but still enjoyable. Looking forward to see Ed's new gig.

+1, while I probably prefer Ed a bit more the new guy is just fine. Watching old re-runs gets old after a while.

Watched the Mach 1 episode of new WD. Awful. Several glaring technical errors. And I'm no expert.

Not a bad episode. I noticed he used no anti-sieze on the rear caliper bolts. He also didn't torque the rear wheel when it was sitting on the ground. Uses his feet to keep the wheel from spinning.

They are just not showing all of the smaller (and relevant) details like they did when Edd was there. This is the reason that Edd departed.

Don't care for the new guy or the way the show devolved. Seems like it's been dumbed down as far as the technical aspects go. Too bad as it was an interesting show before the change.

I didn't think it was too bad. They did an 82 Toyota Celica manual as well. They did a good job of updating the car and keep it oem.

I like the new guy, but then again I am not much of a mechanic and did not realize the new guy may be doing things wrong.

Ant is a moron. He's all about the feels, smells, (and tastes?) of everything, without ever explaining what he's actually doing. He blabs on and on and the work just magically appears in front of him.

FWIW, I, too, believe that Edd China's presence -- specifically what he brought to the program -- was what made Wheeler Dealers worth watching. As they say in the biz, "The camera loves him." The new guy has none of that. He comes across as clone-like. I also agree with Edd that what made the original programming worth watching was the depth of the programming; seeing how projects were chosen and repairs were accomplished -- a beginning, a middle and an end. Edd insisted that we see the nitty-gritty of the work involved. He wasn't trying to sell a product or a tool, he was doing the job at hand. And, to my eyes at least, much of what Edd did was fascinating to watch. And, yeah, the new show, focused on a Mk1 V-Dub GTI, is great. I wish him the best.
