Der Checker: German Used Car Buying Show

I should have taken German in high school. Alex is a musician and car freak. His show Der Checker is in its 7th season on the DMAX network. He rides in a Checker cab and checks out used cars. I can't understand 98% of what he is saying but his body language and the shots of the cars do most of the talking. Just search under "Der Checker" on Youtube for videos or go here.

Here he is reviewing a Bitter SC. It looks sharp with a snowy background:

Someone was asking why they don't show more of the "nuts n bolts" type work on Wheeler Dealers, and I had responded no one wanted to watch a guy wrench for hours... to which a funny German guy said "Germans do!! check out Der Checker".
