    what gets me is, why do they cut suspension springs, for a start thats an M.O.T failure due to the spring being able to move about, and why not just buy a suspension kit, also that Leepu seems to make the car up as he goes along, some of the stuff just seems bodged to buggery and unsafe

    Saw the fiesta on there the other week, seemed like the type of car you really dont want to buy, the camber on the front wheels looked dangerous and the whole thing was just horrible tbh

    I like watching the program, but personally how can someone design the bodywork of a car by doing sumo wrestler style moves around it

    hahaha starting to hate alot of them as there so ott and tacky.
    i love the biker build off stuff, as its more real with what they do, and how they make it.

    but even them they say its done in a wekk but its not,
    that was given away in one show, but a guy in the back ground hair growth..

    i remember watching one, i think it was the BMW one where leepu had to go and buy some sheet metal, now any tom dick or harry knows that you should use thick/strong steel when fabricating stuff for a cars bodywork. no not this stoat the ball, he comes back with a pile of steel not much thicker than a sheet of baking foil

    i find it very entertaining but take everything very light heartedly i mean how many times they say the car needs to be finished over night body work wise but some how the next day it has a whole properly fitted interior with all windows and everything cut to size?

    the fiesta wasnt to bad but the camber was terrible, i do think the way he can just chop and adjust is amazing
