Attaboy productions sold out to an American outfit.
Along came the American car buying road trips and then the US workshop.
Then the US company started to dictate the shows content saying they wanted less technical bits
(playing down to the US viewer?)
Edd got brassed off with that and decided to leave.
Mike has since had death threats about Edds leaving
Not seen the new shows with Ant.
I prefer Fast and Loud personally as I like the stuff they do

If the 2.6 has solid discs fitted, then tread carefully... It will probably still have the vented calipers fitted...

There is a guide here to tell the calipers apart :y

Well I think both WD and SOS are Entertaining, I must admit and Man Up to some of the SOS endings have more than once nearly had me tears, when you see the Joy on someones Face looking at his pride and joy.

Didnt that Ed China Fella have a big fall out with Mark Brewer off set over the fact that he was the only one doing all the Work and Mark claiming the credit or something like that.

Mike brewer wanted the focus of the show to be his wheeling and dealing and Eds work to be shown less

I prefer car SOS,they do a great job on the vehicles they restore

Is that the one with the Canadian and the gobby cockney?  ???
Fixed and no, they do Classic Car Rescue ;)

Car SOS is the one where they restore the pride and joy of various people who can't for various reasons.  :y

My only experience of this was with my 2 year old Seat Altea XL, used as a taxi. 135k miles on it with full Seat service history. When I threw it back I did the following to it...

1. Replaced drivers seat base foam. It had collapsed.
2. Removed and washed the rear seat covers. The interior was a medium grey which waterstained badly.
3. Replaced the undertrays. Fully loaded it used to catch the back end of them on speed humps.
4. Gave it a thorough wash and polish.
5. Replaced the binnacle cover. Had a notch cut into it for taxi wiring.

All the above cost about 120 and time.

The bloke who inspected it simply looked around it taking notes and took a few general pictures of the car. His only immediate concern was that the car was driving, taxed, MoT'd where applicable and that the tyres were legal.

Stone chips and the like are acceptable if comesurate with mileage. Any obvious damage or signs of neglect will cost you dearly and with a PCP, any excess mileage charges will see your bank balance battered.

If I may be so bold, look at the numbers for HP over a 4/5 years and hand it back at the halfway point. Check the small print and ask the question directly. But you should save most of the deposit/better interest/no mileage limitations...

HTH :y

Who decides what and how much?

Your Jag not on PCP surely ::)

Noooo.....Jag is all mine, as has been every other car I have owned.

Mrs Opti is is smitten by by the Kia Stinger and we took a test drive in Grantham yesterday. I'm not selling the Jag so I'm considering if an additional car would be feasible on PCP.

A nominal 5000 deposit would mean payments of 563 for 36 months. GFV 17400.
 
I have to say it is an impressive car for the money. It comes with literally everything.

Come find me in 3 yrs and I'll give you the cash myself :).

Is that for the 3.3T?

Yep.....list is  40495. The only option available is fancy paint taking it to 41125.

Initially the sales guy said that Kia would not allow any discounting on new cars so I would need to pay full list.

Two cups of coffee later a brand new car with 12 months road tax and 6 services included could be had for 37850 OTR......which is no more than a new Insignia or Mondeo.

I'm tempted.

That's a lot more than a new Insignia or Mondeo and into Evoque territory!

I reckon its more car than any of them ???
