What I want to know is why do some people roll the ends of their trousers up drainpipe style? The presenter did it, I kept thinking wtf why are his clothes too small? Makes you look like a gimp.

2BH i thought they were all sh*te those boys and the program, any number of guys could have done and known what they did on the program.
i also thought that the tasks they set them wernt exatly real life type challenges. " when the horn sounds, the lights flash. when the indicator flash so the the headlights and the car wont start" the reason for this was because the judges had wired them all together lol. how many customers go into a garage saying that lol. can understand on seperate occasions but not a once. then there was the fit an imobiliser switch challenge. what the fcuk has that got to do with mechanics lol. any monkey can do that.
also nothing to do with engine internals at all (which to me is what mechanics is all about mainly). then at the end they had to "tune" up the escorts with some new plugs, an induction kit and a back box that they got from argos. again you dont need to be a fully trained motor sport engineer to carry that task out do you lol. they should have gave them a car and said "it wont start so fix it". not just unplug the coil pack lol. and im no mechanic but i answerd every one of the questions they asked and i would say i have quite a limited knowledge of engines. more than some but in no way an expert lol.
sorry for the long post too haha

You should all have known what the show would be like as soon as they showed that C**t from Chop Shop was one of the judges!

The Lad who won was the best of the Bunch there, but the other bloke who got through because "he wanted it, and had passion" in the Judges opinion... Im sorry but if someone is going to work on my car, i would rather they knew what they were doing.... after all my neighbours 3 year old has a passion for cars, does not mean I want him working on my clio!

They made the bloke from chopshop out to be an expert, I'd say he's more of a dog rough cowboy !

did you see the one when they super charged an old porsche, then wonder why it blew about 10mins into being nailed on a test track. awful program!!

Makes me cringe so bad that program ! I wouldn't want a car built by them haha.

I laughed though when the tuning guy applauded the fella for just removing the airbox, mad heat soak for the sake of screwing on a filter.

Interesting at the end when the women said 'less weight = more power', really?

he looked like a c**t.

they were all f**king stupid, that guy at the end wtf

"hi octaine fuel burns slower" he came second???
 
My mate who works for the AA got into the last 16, he didnt get through as his attitude wasnt good supposedly! Its wasnt the fact that he was doing a task and the cameraman was in his face the whole time and he needed some space to do the work!
