The fourth installment of motoring series Wheeler Dealers Trading Up visits Japan this week.
Wheeler Dealers Trading Up which sees auto expert Mike Brewer start his journey navigating his way through the culture and idiosyncrasies of the international used car trade.
This week, Mike will be arriving in Japan, and immediately realizes it’s all about “small is beautiful’.
The ‘Kei car’ sums up this attitude to life and is probably the smallest car he’s ever bought and sold. In Japan, car dealing is done in volume – it’s all about shifting the units digitally over cyber auctions. Mike works hard to overcome a huge culture clash and faces huge frustration as his profits melt away when his classic Toyota breaks down on Mount Fuji.
Wheeler Dealers Trading Up continues tonight on Discovery at 9pm.
