Wheeler Dealer car show

Has anyone ever seen it on tv. I have just recently started recording it. The one shown this weekend covered a Mercedes 230E (W123 car). The car is put out in the UK so they do some interesting cars. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the one that covered the 123 car. They should repeat it this week if anyone has a chance to see it.

Yep, I've been recording it for three weeks.

That was a very clean 230E they did yesterday.

HDT on Cox Cable

HD Theater is what it says on the tvguide.

It is now one of my favorite car shows. They sure do seem to get some good deals on the cars they purchase.

thanks

That w123 series (links) was great fun.
Brilliant !

Funny, that model had no insulation under the fender.

That euro 230E easily dismantled the fender.

I have read that the American models with insulation are alot more difficult to remove and likewise reinstall. (that is why I have never ventured on this)

Noted the euro hood had no liner and the car probably had no A/C since the aux fan was missing.

I wonder if the windscreen installer got it right? Never will know until it rains !

So 1500 quid is about $2800 USD ??

I saw a 300D turbodisel W123 at a San Francisco used car lot this afternoon.
Ivory color outside, similar fender dent and passenger side back door scrape, missing first aid kit, black vinyl interior (looked like it was swapped out cuz ivory was usually matched with tobacco or palomino interior), driver's seat had typical large gouge, auto trans, cleaned bundts, 245K miles...

I did not spend the time to look under the hood or further inspect....asking ONLY $3999............

I saw the episode last night with the 230e. Wouldn't the new paint stick out like a sore thumb? Seems like he did a nice job getting that fender to line up properly.

I watched both episodes - they did good work, but the camera always lies.

I've seen that one on Youtube. As well as a 190E 2.3 16 if I remember correctly. They were both pretty neat.
