      Top job chaps, thank you.
      The later Wheeler Dealers episodes have been a bit poor. Hopefully Ed cancan crack on with his own projects now he's no longer Brewer's gimp. The old stuff where he's tackling a battered M5 et al were the peak of the series.

      Fast n Loud - one of the best things on TV; I feel sorry for Aaron, he's a very talented bloke and as time's gone on, the deadlines have become stupid and the builds increasingly less interesting IMO. One thing that had me yelling at the TV last week though...the whole Fast n Loud vs Street Outlaws thing. Not to be pedantic, but the BAE motor that arrived, with its supposedly overly high compression (13:1 rather than....12.5:1). It doesn't need a set of rods and pistons to back it down a bit - the Pro Stock 'guru' Richard brought in knew it just needed a thicker head gasket and a bigger top blower pulley, but there's money to be made I guess. It's the difference between spending $1500 and $300, perhaps I'm just a racing pikey...

      I'll get off my soap box now :).

      It's been a while since I did any proper gaming (CoD MLG and the like). It made a slight difference using a gaming monitor, though my (at the time) 8 year old 32" Panny LCD was excellent - very few features, so bugger all processing going on and it just spat out the feed it got with little fuss. When you're into the realms of those issues though, I found it equally as important to get a stable network connection (BT fibre, super duper).

      Having missed everything at the cinema thus far, April will be a busy one. Free Fire looks brilliant fun :thumbsup:

      It allows for some non hair dresser vehicles in the near future (not just the Corvette :D).

      Has the Planet Earth II UHD disc been mentioned on the podcast? Or have I missed it?

      Watched Wheeler Dealers for donkeys years, I never had any inkling it was distributed to 220 territories!

      Always loved the oily bits, but (quite) occasionally thought "What? Again?" when Ed wheeled out (for example) £10ks worth of machine that can diagnose air con leaks. I suppose it's supposed to be a glimpse into the equipment they use now in big workshops to make these tasks easier and quicker, obviously not "you too could do this at home and save £250 in garage fees" like the rest of it is.

      Love(d) it, and sad news he's quit the show.

      I find it astonishing, and not a little sad, that such a video needed to be made. If you are sending threats over a program that does up cars (and much as I like it very much, that's all it is), you need to take a very long look at your life priorities.

      Last WD series improved a little, with less guitars and false jeopardy but not a patch on pre-Discovery days. There were a few bits like the old days, like Ed with the Alpine engine, and the Camaro.
      Some of the cars just plain weird, eg Maserati Bi-Turbo but overall just don't think it survived US move plus the emphasis changing from re-building old Jag-wahs to Ford Broncos.
      Watching Ed's youtubes, its sad but he has pulled out at the right time.
      Can't believe threats to Brewer!

      Excellent podcast as usual but you really need to do another one we're Ed (at least - preferably all of you) are suitably refreshed.

      Surprised to hear that it's @Phil Hinton who "hates everyone in the world", I could have sworn it was Ed.

      Thanks folks, enjoyed the podcast as usual and no need to dumb down to gain a new audience. Must admit that I'm still traumatised at the thought of Phil watching a film in just his undies! Definitely no need for an HDR image on this occasion!

      I watched first couple of episodes last night - the scale and staging of the visuals the camera teams have captured is just staggering *spoiler* those little iguanas can motor can they not?
