Quite a disappointing watch to be honest.
Strut brace, fmic and a cheap ass spoiler added.
And they streched it out for an hour.

Did you not see this when it was first aired? They never sold it either, it was left on gumtree and eBay for a week or two after the show was on telly and then it got scrapped by jdm garage. The headlights are now on my gtst, so I'm quite glad they did a shit job of it!

Yeah, they claimed to sell it for 4.5k. Fitted the world's smallest intercooler costing them 315 quid and a big gay wing. They thought they'd turned it into a drift car! It's still on now on discovery +1.

To say Ed does some good show and talk throughs (sometimes), he didn't seem to know anything about this, I even put my head in my hands when they were doing the FMIC.

It was the way he claimed it was a 'drift spec' car just because they added a fmic and a bgw. It had an open diff for **** sake!

Me too I saw this episode. It was on "DMAX". In fact I was a bit disappointed because normally they do really nice stuff on the cars or repair things which normally are going in the trash.

But they were just talking and driving etc. At the end they were just lucky that the OEM supsension was already replaced by a variable one and that was it.

I've seen a few episodes were I thought what the hell is he talking for example just counting the turns of the steering tie rod will replace a control of the steering later on...


But mostly it' really funny and interesting stuff. Only the price they get for the cars when selling are in my opinion a bit irrealistic and at the end often they don't even get a gain worth the work.

I'm sure it will be repeated at some point, it's been on 5 times in the past 3 months anyway at least! You could probably find it online too.
